Ingress - Augmented Reality Game


Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if any of you in the Rebellion still plays Ingress?  I know it was bigger 2-3 years ago when it first came out, but I still play1

 

If you haven't heard of it, it's an MMORP, science fiction, GPS based augmented reality app game.  I think it's really enjoyable - requires you to get out and about, because the gameplay is actually out in the world.  If you're out walking or running, it's really entertaining.  I always find myself taking longer running paths in the hopes of finding a new portal to unlock, and I'm amazed by all the cool historical places in my community that I never noticed before.

It sounds familiar now I think of it. *look down at phone* Oh....I guess I have apps I forget about on my phone.

Lol I do that all the time. But if you've never played it you should pick it back up again and give it a shot! :)

Are you still playing?  I was thinking of taking it up since geocaching this time of year can be problematic......

LOL Yes, I'm still playing and having a great time! I always wanted to get into geocaching, but never have. I suppose Ingress would be a more virtual version of geocaching.

They're faking their location with an app and also creating fake portals in their living rooms and offices.

One particularly creative couple apparently spraypainted themselves nude behind their apartment to fake a sculpture. 

 

I think that's pretty inventive. I don't know exactly who it is, but the comm is just full of people bitching about it these days.

Whaaaaaat? Well, you've got to give them points for creativity I guess. But I'd still be pretty pissed.

Thankfully, my area seems to be inhabited by fairly honest people - smurfs and frogs alike.

Here, here!!!  I've leveled to the top of too many games and then realized I missed on most of the fun by concentrating on the wrong things.
