Synopsis

At the CERN facility in Geneva, in the shadow of the discovery of the Higgs-Boson, a secret project was taking place: The Niantic Project. Scientists have discovered a mysterious substance that can interface directly with the human brain. This substance, called “Exotic Matter (XM)”, has existed since ancient times, influencing human minds and the progress of humanity.

In the wake of this discovery, a battle of powerful nations and corporate giants has begun. Organizations across the globe have embarked on a secret race to exploit XM. It represents both an opportunity and a threat to humanity.

Two factions seek to control XM, and through it, human destiny. The Enlightened view XM’s power as a gift that enhances the human experience and discovery. The Resistance see XM as a hostile takeover of the human mind, choosing technology as humanity’s best path forward. XM, and the mystery behind it, lie at the center of this battle for the fate of humanity.

2018...

Now, a new struggle is about to unfold in Tokyo and cross the globe. Dangerous and powerful forces seeking to exploit the potential of XM will collide. This groundbreaking project will mark the beginning of an epic augmented-reality experience combining the three elements of animation, location-based gaming, and the real world.
