iSeek - Apps

I started iSeek to create simple fun-to-play games for those who seek knowledge.

Why iSeek? 

Gamifying can aid in the learning of important aspects of our culture in a fun way. So I aim to create games that help one learn rather than just casually spend time. The goal is to have fun while playing yet still learning. Through these games I hope to create an interest and help to develop an understanding of our rich heritage.
