At the San Diego convention, Why So Serious held its first live event promoting The Dark Knight at the convention in San Diego, using attendees as the Joker’s patsies by getting them to don the criminal’s signature clown make-up and stage minor crimes. Showtime kicked off its Dexter-themed ARG with a scavenger hunt leading to a grisly kill room, while Disney’s Flynn Lives campaign transformed a nearby warehouse into the End of Line Club from Tron: Legacy. While most of these affairs have been major events centered around entertainment properties, Google appears to have shaken up that trend by slipping their Comic-Con launch of the Niantic Project under the radar, only to have it resurface in force this month.

The Niantic project got a lot of buzz last week thanks to a mysterious teaser, and previously the group was responsible for Google’s location-based discovery app Field Trip. Now, Ingress is launching on Google Play, offering a way for players with invites to join in unravelling a global mystery.

Google Launches Mobile Game You Play in Real Life

Called Ingress — which is available for free download on Android via Google Play — the app is based around the premise that a strange energy has been discovered by European scientists, and it must be controlled before it controls you. But the app isn't one you play while sitting on your couch at night. It requires actual movement and encourages you to get outside to unlock new features, weapons and adventures. For example, to control and capture things called "portals" — which spew matter from creative places such as museums and libraries — you have to go there. Once you connect three portals, you form a region and claim a territory. This means if you are in Times Square, the app's built-in scatter map technology knows where you are and adds a virtual layer to it.

Could the blending of real and virtual worlds be the future of gaming? Inside Ingress, Google's new augmented-reality game. Google ARG Hints at Niantic Labs Conspiracy.

Early critical reception of the first season was lukewarm but became more favorable in subsequent seasons, when the series began to explore its mythology, including parallel universes and alternate timelines. The show, as well as the cast and crew, has been nominated for many major awards. Despite its move to the "Friday night death slot" and low ratings, the series has received a cult following. It has also spawned two six-part comic book series, an alternate reality game, and three novels. The producers were strongly interested in "world building", and the parallel universe allowed them to create a very similar world with a large amount of detail to fill in the texture of the world. A parallel universe also allowed them to show "how small choices that you make define you as a person and can change your life in large ways down the line," according to co-director Jeff Pinkner.[18] However, the producers also realized the concept of the parallel universe could be confusing to viewers.
