Hummer Cheng (鄭頤 Yi Zhèng) is a Taiwanese game developer.

Hummer started around 1989 working at Sachen. When Joyvan and Sachen merged, the company turned into Idea-Tek. Hummer worked on one game for them before starting his own game development team, Hummer Team in 1992.

Because Hummer Team mainly dealt with porting video games, Hummer also had to convert the soundtracks from the original game. As a result, he is probably best known for his soundtracks for Somari and Super Mario World.

Music Development

Hummer used Athena's NES sound driver. It is unknown whether he or somebody else reverse-engineered it.

In the Sachen and Idea-Tek, he used Guo Qiyong's sound driver.
