About Tesseract

The Tesseract Center for Immersive Environments and Game Design

Tesseract is a game development and visualization studio housed at the University of Arkansas and headed by Dr. David Fredrick. Our core mission is the creation of immersive, game-based content for courses and research, with undergraduate and graduate student developers playing an integral part. Through the interdisciplinary, project-based process of game design, Razorbacks teach Razorbacks, both in making the content and in “playing” it as part of course modules or research projects.

Our team is made up of recent graduates in leadership roles and current student interns. We’re able to teach students valuable skills beyond the classroom and empower them to go out and make a difference wherever they end up.
