BioShock Wins Eight G.A.N.G. Audio Awards

2K’s BioShock has won eight awards at the 6th Annual G.A.N.G. Awards, presented by The Game Audio Network Guild - a non-profit organisation supporting the game audio industry.

"Every now and again, life provides one of those great moments of satisfaction for which words are really inadequate to describe," said BioShock composer Garry Schymann.

"Being honoured by my friends and colleagues at this year’s G.A.N.G awards was one of those moments. It was a very moving evening for me and I will always be grateful to G.A.N.G. and everyone who considered my score for BioShock worthy of these honours."
