Jul 202015
 

O.K. I’m so super excited about this.  HALO has been a part of this family since my children were still in diapers, it’s actually hard to believe it’s been so long.   That isn’t the only reason why I’m looking into this game.  It’s being made by Spartan Games who has a licensing agreement with Microsoft to make the game.  Spartan Games makes great models and all of their games have been excellent , in my opinion.

Spartan Games will be at Booth 2733 and their product will be available through The War Store at booth number 1831.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ABANDONED SPACE STATION AND GIANT SAND WORM SOUNDSETS ADD MOVIE-LIKE SOUND TO SCI-FI GAMING

New SoundSets from Syrinscape Bring Tabletop Sci-Fi Gaming to Life

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (January 14, 2015) – Syrinscape, developer of the app that creates custom soundscapes, effects, and music for the tabletop gaming experience, announces today the release of the Abandoned Space Station and Giant Sand Worm SoundSets for the Syrinscape Sci-Fi Player.

The eeriness of an abandoned space station comes to life in the Abandoned Space Station SoundSet, which completely soundscapes a vast and mostly empty structure, barely hanging together in the depths of space. From air ventilation, malfunctioning computers, and sparks, to garbled distress calls, explosions, and the joyous sound of the tearing metal hull, this SoundSet will transform the gaming table into an out-of-this-world experience. The Abandoned Space Station Sound Set is available on Syrinscape.com for $3.99.

The Giant Sand Worm SoundSet is everything a GM would want for an epic encounter with the worst the space-desert can offer. As players battle giant, vicious Sand Worms, the game is enhanced with laser fire, vehicles, bombs, roars, crashes, and other sounds for a massive, space monster clash. The Giant Worm SoundSet is available on Syrinscape.com for $3.99.

The SoundSets can be purchased separately, as part of the Sci-Fi Monthly Subscription Package for $6.50/month, or as part of the Super Syrin Subscription Package for $10/month. The Syrinscape Fantasy and Sci-Fi Players are free to download, including two free SoundSets, and are compatible with a wide range of devices, including PC, Mac, Android Tablets, and iPads. For more information, the free download, or to subscribe, visit syrinscape.com.

Syrinscape SoundPacks and SoundSets add a new dimension to the gaming table. In addition to creating the officially licensed SoundPacks for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, Syrinscape creates general-purpose fantasy and sci-fi themed sounds that bring the soundtrack of gameplay to life, as well as the soon-to-be-released SoundSet Creator.

About Syrinscape
Using a powerful audio engine and complex algorithms to produce ever-changing soundscapes and rich encounter-specific music, Syrinscape conjures every aural landscape imaginable, from ethereal forests and stony shorelines, to dank, vermin-filled dungeons, to the spooky depths of the underdark. Designed by accomplished composer and tabletop gamer Benjamin Loomes, along with the developers at the Interaction Consortium, Syrinscape builds on more than 6 years of prototyping and community feedback. Syrinscape is based in Australia. Syrinscape is available for a wide range of devices, including PC, Mac, Android Tablets, and iPads, and the players can be downloaded via syrinscape for free.
