MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — If you see more people looking at their phones in downtown Mobile Sunday, there’s a reason. They’re using mobile apps to explore Mobile. The mobile gaming company Niantic is hosting a mission day in the Port City. Players use the game Ingress to set out on up to 18 missions in Mobile starting Sunday morning. Niantic is the same company that made augmented reality games like Pokemon Go and Harry Potter Wizards Unite.
Organizers say they have at least 50 people sign up as of Thursday. Using public spaces and the Ingress app, groups will explore Mobile together, on foot. Players are asked to gather at 10 Sunday morning in Spanish Plaza. For more information click here.
