Local entrepreneur seeks to grow online Chinese language game


Have you ever considered learning all about another country?  Say, China? A local electronic game developer may have just the ticket for you.

Ken Dirkin is the creator of  “Zon”, an elaborately layered interactive video game. He created it a few years back with two aims:  to prepare young people for the global economy, and to create what he calls "next generation" electronic language learning.

Dirkin is President of Zon Labs, LLC. He was joined on Current State by Jeff Banker, Entrepreneur in Residence at Spartan Innovations.

Dirkin says that in "Zon", players simulate being a tourist in China.
