A newer GameTek logotype

GameTek was a video game publisher based in North Miami Beach, Florida well known for publishing video game adaptations of game shows in the 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.

After establishing distribution for the game show titles, GameTek branched out by licensing European titles for the North American market, including Frontier: Elite II and The Humans.

GameTek games include:

GameTek filed for bankruptcy in 1997 and closed in July 1998. Some of the company's assets were acquired by Take 2 Interactive in 1997.
