Google’s Niantic Labs to bring ‘ENDGAME’ book series to an AR game

januar 17, 2014

Niantic Labs

Game is expected to launch on Android and iOS devices in late 2014

The folks over at Niantic Labs, the Google company behind the widely popular Ingress game, have just announced a new partnership with James Frey to make his newest series ENDGAME into a location based augmented reality game. Building off of the books Niantic Labs will create an experience that builds upon their successes with Ingress and provides players the ability to bring a video game even further into the real world.

ENDGAME is a multimedia experience unlike any that have been seen before, combining fifteen original e-book novellas, YouTube videos, mapping coordinates, social media and so much more. Each book in the trilogy will have an interactive puzzle that needs to be solved using clues and riddles that are found right within the text of the books. For the final book, ENDGAME: THE CALLING a huge prize has been announced.

Placing a quantity of gold on display in a public environment — behind bullet-proof glass of course — they will live broadcast an event on YouTube which will allow those who are able to solve the puzzle to cash in and win some gold.  The game is set to launch on Android devices later in 2014, so be sure to keep your eyes out for the arrival of the game, and be sure to figure it out quickly so you can try to get in on some of the prizes.
