INGRESS - the world you had no idea existed

Postby kimeepower » Thu Aug 20, 2015 9:11 am

I would love to see a panel about Ingress. If you don't know about Ingress go to www.ingress.com
I found this on a website on how geeks stay fit. Basically it is a real life game.
There is sooo much to this game, we can talk strategy, factions, connections & events.
I wish I knew about this 5 years ago.

The game has only existed for a couple years (I've been playing since beta). There are some Ingressers among the Arisia community but the overlap is surprisingly small.

Also, being as Ingress is a game maybe this is more a game panel idea? I did discuss Ingress a bit on a games panel a couple years ago but maybe it's gotten more popular enough now to have its own panel? I'd be on a panel regardless.

ETA: One reason I'd like to see this in gaming is that Ingress has a large proportion of female players. Since female gamers and their representation are an important issue in the games community I think that's worth addressing.
