  • Softie, Inc.

Softie was an American game developer. The company originated in California at the beginning of 1983, but moved to Arizona a couple years later. The company mostly developed television game shows to video games, especially for GameTek. Most of their other titles were published by Hi-Tech Expressions and ShareData.

The company closed its doors in 1996 when the President of the company was convicted of fraud.


Music Development


Softie only produced two NES games. Bruce Sandig programmed the company's NES sound driver in 6502 assembly language, and also wrote a conversion utility to convert MIDI files to the NES. Since Bruce didn't know how to compose music, he hired his friend Rob Wallace. According to Wallace, he wrote the music on an Amiga called Voyetra Studio Pro.
