Game Boy Color

Most of the Altron-developed Game Boy Color games featured the following text:

SOUND DRIVER Ver.2.0
PROGRAM T.SAKAI
ADVICER JAMI
CONVERTER K.TAKAHASHI

The identities of these developers is not currently clear. However, it is possible T. Sakai programmed the sound driver, Jami designed it, and K. Takahashi may have converted the composers' compositions into the sound engine.

It is unknown if the K. Takahashi mentioned is the same one who worked at Coconuts Japan.
