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.
