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.
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.
In early 2011, the team grew to include Henrik Pettersson and Yangtian Li. Henrik is the winner of the 2010 Freeplay Game Design Award and winner of the 48hr Game Making Competition 2010. Yangtian is a digital painter and talented graphic designer whose artistic style has already lefts its mark on the Train Conductor series.
