SYRINSCAPE ANNOUNCES GEN CON LINE-UP WITH PATHFINDER, CATAN®, MUTANTS & MASTERMINDS, ATTENDEE AUDITIONS AND MORE
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (July 19, 2016) – Syrinscape, creator of the award-winning apps that put the power of custom, movie-like sound effects, soundscapes and music at the fingertips of the gamer, announces today its line-up of activities and events for Gen Con 2016, the Best Four Days in Gaming.
Live RPG Plus Pathfinder All-Star Event
Dicestormers host Benjamin Loomes will attempt a TPK against Pathfinder all-stars Erik Mona, Jason Bulmahn, F. Wesley Schneider and Crystal Frasier in Live RPG Plus, an audience-driven interactive RPG adventure. Using the Realm Works campaign management tool and Syrisncape’s sound app, Live RPG Plus will transform the Westin Capitol III Ballroom into a fast and fun gaming experience for the players as well as the audience, who will contribute to the action via shout-outs and social media to alter the course of the game. The event includes live audience auditions to become the monstrous roar of the boss the party will encounter, a workshop for creating sounds for tabletop games and incorporating Syrinscape and Realm Works into your game. Tickets are $2, on sale now. Saturday, August 6 from 7-9:00pm.

Designed by accomplished composer and tabletop gamer Benjamin Loomes, along with the developers at the Interaction Consortium, Syrinscape builds on more than 8 years of prototyping and community feedback. Syrinscape is based in Australia. Syrinscape is available for a wide range of devices, including PCs, Macs, Android Tablets and phones, iPhones and iPads, and the players can be downloaded via syrinscape for free.
