Early Voxel History

IGF China Best Mobile Game 2010

Freeplay Award Best Game Audio

The Voxel Agents began in early 2009 when three friends and game developers, Simon Joslin, Tom Killen, and Matthew Clark, joined forces to exercise their passion for highly polished and fun gameplay. The three founders had studied together at Queensland University of Technology and won consecutively the 2007 and 2008 “48 Hour Game Making Challenge” before knowing they were onto something.

The original Train Conductor (“iPhone Game of the Year 2009”) launched The Voxel Agents to success by being repeatedly featured by Apple and listed as a “Highly Addictive Game” on the App Store. At the 2010 Freeplay awards it was nominated for “Best Game Design” and it won the “Best Game Audio” award. Train Conductor 2: USA continued the success by winning the “Best Mobile Game” award at the Independent Games Festival of 2010 in Shanghai, and it has had more than 700k paid downloads.

In their second year, The Voxel Agents picked up “Best New Business 2010” in the National NEIS Business Awards, “Startup / Rookie of the Year” at the MoMoMelbourne business awards night, and the “Tim Richards Award of 2010″ from Film Victoria.
