It’s great that we’ve been able to bring our creative friends together to master this challenge. With INSTINCT3 and Freaks 4U Gaming we’re working together with like-minded people who, like us, aim to deliver good entertainment and competent reporting. Together we can support one other and benefit from our combined experience within the industry.”

In the end it’s up to us influencers to meet these expectations and high standards, but honestly, I’m not worried at all, I just hope that Trymacs can handle the pressure!”
