Before it became famous for Pokemon GO, Niantic Labs, which at one point was also a Google property, tried to make a name for itself with Ingress, a mobile augmented reality sci-fi game.
It had its share of fans but the high-concept game and almost unexciting mechanics made it a little difficult to get started and get hooked.
Since then, the game has been “rebooted” and now has its own Netflix animated series that could help spark some interest in the game.
Or at least offer fan service to its remaining players.
Ingress, both the first incarnation and the new Prime version, revolves around XM, short for exotic matter.
It is a fictional type of energy invisible to the naked eye and can only be seen via the mobile app, of course.
