Announced as a finalist last month, Agent Simon attended the awards ceremony on behalf of the team and demonstrated Train Conductor 2: USA on the floor at GDC China in Shanghai.

Other winners included Sugar Cube by Turtle Cream of South Korea who won “Best Game”, Skillz: The DJ Game by Playpen Studios, Hong Kong, and ButaVX: Justice Fighter by Nekomura Games, Singapore.

Winner of the “Best Student Game” was The White Laboratory by Huazhong University of Science & Technology, China. Both DeadSteel (Media Design School, New Zealand) and Ponlai (National Yunlin University of Science and Technology, Taiwan) picked up “Excellent Student” awards.

The Voxel Agents were joined by fellow Melbourne developer Alexander Bruce and his innovative game Hazard: The Journey of Life who was also nominated for the awards. The fact that two Melbourne based indie developers were nominated for the awards indicates the strength and vibrancy of the Australian and Victorian indie games development scene.

I purchased the game a while ago and now find that I cant run any app updates to it, it now says that I’m outside the US and therefore can’t update the app that I paid for??

I’d appreciate you help on this.

Hi Max,

You may have selected the incorrect store in iTunes.

At the bottom right hand corner if iTunes there is a round button that has the image of a flag on it (the flag corresponds to which store you’re in).

Click on that flag and then a list of countries will appear. One of those countries will be the United States.

If you click on the US, you will then be taken to the US store and will be able to download the update.

Hey Jerrick, Chicago is the next level!! But it might be a while before it’s out on iOS. We’re currently right in the heart of developing a massive upgrade to launch with the Android version of TC2, and Chicago will be part of it. Once the Traindroid dust has settled, we’ll then plan our next iOS update. Cheers, Simon.
