The game has been in development within Google for many months by a small internal group known as Niantic Labs, headed up by John Hanke. Hanke is perhaps best known as the CEO of Keyhole Inc., a mapping & technology company Google acquired in 2004. After the acquisition, Keyhole’s flagship product was renamed Google Earth and Hanke would go on to lead the group that developed Google Maps, StreetView and more.
These portals exist in real world locations like libraries, museums and other “interesting public spaces,” defined automatically by Google’s extremely extensive database of locations.
Gameplay revolves around capturing and controlling these portals for your faction before the other side can get their hands on it. Capturing a portal is as simple as being nearby and hitting a button on your phone. But the catch is that you truly do need to be nearby. Ingress uses your phone’s GPS to know if you truly are at the art museum you claim to be at.
