“Winning the award for Best Gaming Accessory is a +10 on top of an incredibly warm welcome Syrinscape received for our first trip to UK Games Expo, “ says Benjamin Loomes, creator of Syrinscape. “Dozens of rooms and every corridor were filled with incredible gaming activity, tables, stands, and gamers playing until the early morning hours. We got to introduce Syrinscape to a whole new audience, and I love seeing the infectious grins of people as they use the app for the first time. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
