Ingress may still remain in closed beta at the moment, but the following behind the augmented reality game has anything but stagnated. With more “agents” invited every day, Niantic and Google are doing a fine job with the progression of the story. That said, it’s easy to get lost in the story due to the many layers, so that’s why something like the Ingress Report should serve you well.
The Niantic Project website is updated daily, adding another piece of information that contributes to the incredibly intricate and multi-layered storyline. The Ingress Report is a bit different, but players of the game should enjoy what they see.
The faux news report covers the “discovery” of Exotic Matter, the trans-dimensional energy that Ingress players are fighting to control. You’ll also see interviews with players from around the world, and other geeky fun. This is the first in a new series of “reports” from Niantic, which should be a nice treat for players and those patiently awaiting their invites.
We may still have some time until Ingress leaves beta status, but one thing is for sure: This geeky game will continue to gain traction. Ingress itself may dance around the “painfully geek” point, but that doesn’t make it any less fun to play.
If you’re interested in playing Ingress, and still haven’t requested an invite, you can do so here. You may also still be able to score an invite through an existing player that’s level 6 or higher. Last week, one invite was given to L6+ to recruit new agents.
Watch the Ingress Report below, and happy hacking!
