Ingress is a location-based, augmented-reality mobile game developed by Niantic. Ingress uses the mobile device GPS to locate and interact with "portals" which are in proximity to the player's real-world location. The portals are physical points of interest where "human creativity and ingenuity is expressed" often manifesting as public art such as statues and monuments, unique architecture, outdoor murals, historic buildings, and other displays of human achievement.
The Enlightened faction embrace the powers of XM to transcend mankind and believe their mission is to assist in the enlightenment of mankind by harnessing this energy. The Resistance faction see XM as a malicious force threatening humanity and believe their mission is to defend the human race by resisting the effects of XM.
The Resistance is represented in the game by the color blue and the Enlightened by green.
