The name Zark was created by two friends in dental school who always studied in the same room on campus for their dental boards. They decided to give the room a name and came up with Zark. Jacob Zurcher and Mark Greenburg combined the "Z" from Zurcher and the "ark" from Mark to form Zark. At this point the name was more of a joke than anything else, but Jacob and Mark were always talking about new inventions and innovations. Finally, they worked together on a game and decided it was time to form Zark LLC. They did not call it Zark Games because they didn't want to limit the company just to games. They hope to create other products in the future including more games.
