Ingress for your Car: An Augmented Reality Battle Game on the Road
Hi everyone, I’m James, an Ingress player and game designer from Hong Kong. I came up with this idea while playing the game: wouldn’t it be cool to play an Augmented Reality game while driving? Playing while driving would make the best use of this time and expand the time we have available for gaming. I’m wondering if anyone is interested in this Augmented Reality game, and I’m hoping to hear your opinions. I’ve posted more information below.

For example, you can encounter other players while driving and battle them in the game. You can pick up weapons, shields, and energy chips to further customize your car and eventually even turn your car into a robot. (No, it is not transformer but their movies sure are awe-aspiring) If you drive by certain roads or pass by certain buildings, you can occupy them and use them to your advantage. Your ability in battles is based on the objects you acquire from daily driving and from previous battle experience. You can also form alliances to fight alongside people from around the world.

I haven’t completely thought out the game’s back-story yet; the basic idea is pure energy forms left their home world because they exhausted its resources, and came to Earth. Earth scientists managed to rescue some of these energy spirits by infusing them into car. However, humans’ greedy nature and the energy form’s malevolent intent intertwined and altered both worlds’ fate forever.


This game has three groups, each with a different purpose. One is to occupy Earth, and another is to prevent Earth’s conquest and destruction. A third is Earth’s own resistance; they use human technology to try to drive out the alien invaders. What will happen? Only you will decide…

I know there are concerns about driving safety and extra care will place to prevent interactive play during driving. I’ve already done some research, and am developing hardware to connect cars and Smartphone. I’m part of development teams for several mobile games, and also introduced the MUD (Multiple Users Dungeon) to China, so I have some experience with projects like this. If anyone is interested, pm me or post and I will do my best to answer them here. This idea would be the first real car battle game. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it, and came here to listen to your ideas. Please feel free to respond with any questions or opinions, they will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading!

ey James, thanks for sharing such a detailed info. Btw, just wanted to contribute some item below for our fellow players.

Guys, make sure you are at max XM as much as possible. When you first start, you don't have a full bar of XM. Spend some time walking or driving around to fill up your XM bar. Try to always have this bar as full as possible so you can always act when necessary. Almost all actions cost XM to perform. KEEP THE BAR FULL.

(Protip on filling XM bar, hop in the car and drive around for 10 minutes does it for me at low levels)
