GameTek was a video game publisher based in North Miami Beach, Florida known for publishing video game adaptations of game shows in the late 1980s and early 1990s. GameTek was a trade name for IJE, the owner of electronic publishing rights to Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune. Originally IJE licensed these titles to ShareData of Chandler, Arizona; however, when IJE saw ShareData's success with the titles, IJE decided to publish the titles themselves, resulting in the founding of GameTek.
Initially, GameTek had to farm out all their game development to Rare, so David Wise had to compose the music in hexadecimal. When Rare is getting out of GameTek, they hired Mike Pierone to write their MIDI files, so they converted it into their own sound driver. The only game they used to get their own sound driver is Super Jeopardy! (NES).
For Wheel of Fortune Starring Vanna White (NES), the audio was outsourced to Imagitec Design, so Barry Leitch can write the music in Music Macro Language using a driver written by someone named "Mule the Top Ladd" (which might be an aliases of someone from Enigma, Imagitec, Gremlin or Leitch himself, or his family).
For American Gladiators (NES), which Incredible Technologies was hired by GameTek to program it, Leif Marwede was hired to write the music, which was converted to a sound driver, possibly by David Thiel.
For their internally developed product, like Jeopardy!, Wheel of Fortune and InfoGenius Productivity Pak: Frommer's Travel Guide, Mike Pierone coded the sound driver in Z80 assembly.
