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.
In 1996 GameTek scaled down its publishing activities, turning most of that aspect of its business over to Philips. GameTek filed for bankruptcy in 1997 and closed in July 1998. Most of the company's assets were acquired by Take 2 Interactive in 1997.
