Hey, Android Users: Google Made an Augmented Reality Game, and Now You Can Play It

Do you have an Android device? Do you like alternate/augmented reality games? Well, you’re in luck, because Ingress, Google’s own ARG, is exiting beta on December 14. (And it’s already lost its invite-only status, so if you’re really excited, you can play it right now.)

Haven’t heard of Ingress? Here’s a quick description, from GameSpot:

There’s a deep backstory to the game and a lot going on gameplay-wise, but in basic terms, Ingress involves two factions (the Enlightened and the Resistance) battling for their individual causes. Teams of real-world players must work together to create and link portals using their mobile devices in public places around the world to score points for their side.

There are lots of screenshots of the gameplay out there, and it looks pretty awesome — though I’m a sucker for a good ARG. I can’t believe I didn’t know this existed!

So, what are you waiting for? Head over to the Play store and get in on it!
