Zac Zidik's Blog
I have a great deal of experience in organizing, planning, designing and programming many types of multimedia including web applications and games, CD-ROM and DVD based applications and video with both 2D and 3D animation. I have designed and programmed applications with a wide variety of purposes including training and educational materials, advertising, annual reports, educational and casual games and a variety of marketing support materials. My animation work also has been used for a wide variety of purposes including 3D medical procedures, invitations, advertising and product messages, opening videos to large business events, and scoreboard graphics at sports stadiums.
Recently, I have been designing and developing educational games as well as programming an HTML 5 game engine that suits the accessibility needs of the university. I have three published educational games to my credit including, Econ U: a strategy game for Economics 102 where you must use economic concepts to successfully build and maintain a university for 100 turns, Chemblaster: a bubble shooter game for Chemistry 101 used to aid in memorization of the elements and compounds of the periodic table, and Bucket of Beans: a trading game for Social Anthropology used to illustrate the concept of reciprocity.
