GameTek was a computer game and video game publisher based out of North Miami Beach, Florida well known for publishing video game adaptations for game shows during 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; but when IJE saw ShareData's success with the titles, IJE decided to publish the titles themselves and GameTek was born.

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.
