Kwiztek announces new War of 1812 quiz with The Historica-Dominion Institute


Kwiztek announced today that it has entered into a development partnership with The Historica-Dominion Institute to develop an interactive bilingual War of 1812 game that will target history fans and casual gamers of all ages. The quiz is made possible with the generous support of TD Bank Group as part of the Institute’s War of 1812 bicentennial programming.

“We are very excited to have the opportunity to work with The Historica-Dominion Institute’s War of 1812 bicentennial initiative”, said John C. Daldin, Managing Director, Kwiztek. “This is an exciting program and we at Kwiztek are well positioned to power The Historica-Dominion Institute’s history quiz. Our best of breed cross platform solution will deploy, operate, program and maintain a multi-player experience that will cultivate and transfer knowledge via an exciting, innovative and easy-to-play multimedia EDU-tainment game.”

Available to the public online, the interactive game provides a multi-channel, media-rich experience of War of 1812 content in both English and French, featuring new and classic Heritage Minutes. Social media is integrated via Facebook, Twitter, leaderboard and chat functionality.

“We’re pleased to work with Kwiztek in creating this interactive War of 1812 quiz experience. It challenges Canadians to test their history knowledge – and also engages a new online community.” said The Historica-Dominion Institute President Anthony Wilson-Smith.

About Kwiztek What began as a “cool idea for a trivia game” gradually developed into a cross platform solution through which any type of “programming” could be integrated and tailored for the audience of its choosing. Kwiztek’ s principal focus has shifted from its original purpose as a game developer to positioning the use of its proprietary “EDU-gaming” engine, which enables the simultaneous multi-channel media-rich delivery of unlimited tailored content to a worldwide user base in any language.
