Ziggy Van Onacker
Graduate Producer
Hi! I'm Ziggy.

Managing projects from A to Z is what I enjoy doing most. I am an enthusiastic game producer who is also an expert generalist. When applicable, I assist in the entire pipeline whether it is a AAA, AA, or a serious game. During my studies, I have always been a team player in any kind of project.

I am currently located in Belgium and am willing to relocate to anywhere in the world. Open to any kind of opportunity!
Latest project:

For the final group projects course in Digital Arts and Entertainment, we created a realistic Space Docking Simulator. The goal of the sim is to have a feeling of what it would be like to take over the automated docking procedure with one of the official spacecraft capsules.

This is a client-based project and will be playable from 23 April - 30 June 2022 @ Antwerp Expo.

When I am not creating games, you will either find me inside or outside, all depending on Belgium's most famous weather. 

Going abroad, hikes, museum visits, road trips, sightseeing, etc. You name it, I am in! I also adventure a lot behind my laptop: movie nights with friends, testing out prototypes, giving feedback, and moderating several online communities!
