SYRINSCAPE’S CTHULHU RISES DOOMPACK RECEIVES UK GAMES EXPO AWARD FOR BEST RPG SUPPLEMENT
 
Free RPG Day Stores Will Give Away Bonus Cthulhu SoundPack
 

 
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (June 14, 2017) – Syrinscape, creator of the award-winning apps that bring tabletop games to life with movie-like sound, is thrilled to announce it received the award for “Best RPG Supplement” at this year’s UK Games Expo. This marks the second award Syrinscape has received from the UK Games Expo community, having won “Best Game Accessory” at the 2015 show.
 
The Cthulhu Rises Doompack contains six spine-tinglingly immersive locations and encounters inspired by the Cthulhu mythos. Along with the mighty Cthulhu, Nyarlathotep, the Mi-Go, Great Old Ones and Outer Gods alike, this six-pack of sonic doom and horror includes subliminal skitterings, mind-bending energy fields, psychic horror, huge bestial roars, storms, demonic voices and more to have players of any Lovecraftian tabletop game on the edge of insanity. The Cthulhu Rises DoomPack is now available on Syrinscape.com for $19.99, and is already unlocked for all SuperSyrin and Sci-Fi subscribers.
 
Syrinscape creator Benjamin Loomes was on hand to accept the award, presented by game industry legend John Kovalic (Dork Tower, Munchkin). Said Kovalic, "Handing Syrinscape the award was one of my great pleasures at UK Games Expo. I've been a Syrinscape fan and subscriber since I began GM'ing again. Syrinscape audio adds so much to my gaming sessions, and I know my players love the rich aural soundscapes it creates. At least right up to the point their characters die horribly."

The “Best RPG Supplement” award caps-off a fantastic return to UKGE for Syrinscape, where hundreds of attendees contributed their voices via the new Syrinscape Sound Cave to be crafted into Lovecraft’s Shoggoth on a forthcoming SoundSet, and attendees were entertained by an all-star cast in the UKGE debut of Live RPG Plus.
 
Further, Syrinscape returns to Free RPG Day this year as a Platinum-level sponsor, providing 10,500 free Cthulhu Bonus – Steam Train to Salem SoundPacks to participating friendly local game shops. Steam Train to Salem is an add-on to the Cthulhu Rises DoomPack that will have players rolling down the tracks to insanity with the ambient hustle and bustle of Coach to Cabin Class, hungry riders in the dining car enjoying music from an upright piano, brain-sucking alien power, an incessant harmonica player, haunted luggage carriage and more. Free RPG Day takes place Saturday, June 17 at participating friendly local game shops.
 
The award-winning Syrinscape apps bring fantastic, realistic sound to tabletop gaming and are compatible with nearly any mobile device or computer. Syrinscape’s Fantasy Player, Sci-Fi Player and Board Game Player apps are free to download and the official sounds of Pathfinder, Mutants & Masterminds, Catan and hundreds of other sound creations for nearly any tabletop game are available for sale individually or as part of the Supersyrin Subscription for $10/month.
 
Syrinscape can also be completely unlocked for free for 30 days at Syrinscape.com/freetrial and includes two free SoundSets to keep after the trial.
