You can download it with gamertag set to another country, no?
AUS rating board sucks and some developers just didn't bother at all. There is good joke about this, during one of missions in the game.

Not even going to download from US/UK Marketplace if that's their attitude.

Man, you Australians always get screwed on games and gaming deals. :(

Like the other guy said, you could download it with a US or UK account but you'd need Microsoft Points for that region, and that's if it's not IP restricted.

Im in NZ so I couldnt buy the walking dead, as NZ seemed to want to follow AUS on that one

I set up a UK account, and linked that account to a paypal account to add ms points to it

If you didn't know, Vblank is a one man operation. He has spent many years working on this with a limited budget. And since this has yet to sell like Minecraft, I can't blame him for not wanting to deal with a country like AUS, where they clearly don't want adults enjoying certain games due to financial or mature rated situations. He just got this out the door and I highly doubt he is just rolling in the dough right now. Don't get me wrong, I feel for ya. It totally sucks to be you right now.

Regardless, I would be playing this game. I would get it off the internet or through a US account. It is an awesome game and totally worth the ten bucks.

Dude, just create a US account and once it's on your harddrive play it from your Aus account, that's how I'm playing it (I'm in South Australia).

I was annoyed that we haven't got it locally also, I was looking forward to it for so long.

EDIT: Also, to get Microsoft points, go to Play-Asia.com, you can buy US points and they email the code to you, that way you don't have to go using Paypal/Credit Card deets if you don't feel comfortable with that. If you need any help, feel free to let me know and I'll see if I can't walk you through it. =)

I don't see your problem.

The game makes fun of the Australian ratings board in a bit of dialogue, too, which I find funnier now that I know he isn't going to get it rated there.
