An Epic Story revolving around "Exotic Matter"

Earth has been seeded with gExotic Matter,h or XM, associated with the Shapers, a mysterious phenomenon or alien race which is neither described nor seen. The in-universe motivation for the Enlightened faction is their belief that the Shapers are working toward a powerful enlightenment which will uplift all mankind.The existence of a mysterious substance, believed to have enlightening effects on the human mind was found on Earth as a result of an unexpected result of an experiment. The researchers who made the discovery began to refer to the substance as "Exotic Matter (XM)". Further examination led them to believe that XM had cognitive properties and they discovered that people exposed to the substance at critical mass, became susceptible to beings known as "Shapers", who were planning an invasion. XM is scattered around the world but found to be particularly centered around places of cultural, religious or artistic significance. These places became known as "XM Portals". Researchers developed a scanner function installed on mobile phones, able to identify and activate XM portals around the world, but before long, this scanner technology was leaked and uploaded in the form of a "game" in app stores. Since then, millions of people began to explore the nature of XM and its effects on humanity. The result was the emergence of two factions, The Enlightened and The Resistance.

The Enlightened

The Enlightened are accepting of the Shapers peaceful invasion of Earth, and aim to control XM and lead mankind to enlightenment.

The Resistance

The Resistance fight to prevent the invasion of Earth by the Shapers, and protect mankind from the unknown effects of XM energy.

An epic encampment game seamlessly connected with the real world

The overall concept of Ingress is an encampment game. Its most distinct characteristic is the fact that the field of play is none other than the real world, requiring you to physically walk around and interact with the real world. The player chooses to side with either The Enlightened or The Resistance. By taking control of portals around the world and linking multiple portals to form a triangular area, that area becomes under the player's control. Player's compete for "mind units", corresponding to the population density of a particular area.

Portals are located inside buildings and monuments in the real world, and players need to physically go to a location to capture/control a portal.
