Destineer, Inc. was an American umbrella company covering a holding company, a video game publisher, and a video game developer, that was based in Minnetonka, Minnesota. The company was founded by Peter Tamte, former executive vice president of Bungie, in 2001. It developed some original titles and also ported games from Windows to Macs under a number of different brands, including MacSoft and Bold Games.[1][2]

In January 2003, Destineer acquired MacSoft, a company also founded by Tamte in 1993, and in May 2005, it also acquired Atomic Games. In May 2011, the company silently shut down, together with all of its divisions and subsidiaries.
