Gamtec (Chinese: 三協資訊; pinyin: sān xié zī xùn) is a video game developer established in June 1989 and based in Taichung City, Taiwan[1][2] noted for its unlicensed Sega Mega Drive games such as Legend of Wukong[3] and Squirrel King. His motto would have to be: Believe in yourself (Chinese: 相信自己; pinyin: xiāng xìn zì jǐ).

The company also developed a number of NES[4] and PC[5] games, and claims to have developed for the Gamate, Super A'Can, Arcade, SNES, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance,[1][2] although it often acted as a contract developer for other companies so is frequently not credited in games it worked on.

Gamtec currently operates the online gaming site Bingo King.[6]

Games[edit]

Games in this list, unless otherwise specified, are those that explicitly credit Gamtec. Because the company is a contract developer, it may have helped develop other titles in which its name does not appear, such as those for the Bit Corporation Gamate handheld system.[7]
