Over the past week or so, there's been so much publicity about this new game from Google. In particular Niantic Labs, which brought us Field Trip a few months ago. The new game I'm speaking of is Ingress. It's closed beta, and by invite only right now. All week we've been seeing people begging others on Google+ for an invite. I finally got mine yesterday afternoon, which made for a great Thanksgiving.
However we were lucky enough to get a few invite codes from the one and only Brandon Badger, who is one of the master minds at Niantic Labs. He has also been giving away codes on his Google+ page to those that show off some creative artwork using the Ingress logo. And I must say there's been some great ones out there.
For those that aren't aware of Ingress, or don't know what it is; we suggest you take a look at a couple of great articles Doug put together earlier this week about Ingress. But to put in short terms, it's basically a genius way to get fresh data for Google Maps and Street View. And it's very addicting.
