Google is Launching an eBook Series Based on Augmented Reality Game

Niantic Labs, the startup that lives inside of Google and has produced projects like the Google Field Trip app, has plans to launch a line of eBooks based on the augmented reality game Ingress.

According to a report in Publishers Lunch, the series, which is slated to launch next month, will be authored and co-published by Thomas Greanias and his @tlantis Books. The first title in the series will be called The Alignment.

Ingress is an augmented reality game that Google launched this past November and it is currently in the invite-only beta stage. Ingress’s website boasts,”the world around you is not what it seems,” and Nianticproject.com is full of cryptic messages and codes.
