Hi,

 

im researching about the
Quelle games here in Germany.

I own some of them and found the S.S. in the molding.
On AtariAge I found out that it stands for Sun Science and that is related to Suntek(Sunteck)
somehow.

I suppose that Suntek was some kind of distributor or Software "Developer" and
Sun Science was producing the cardridges.

Is that correct?
And are there more detail information about the company?

 

Thanks

 

Florian

That's correct, Florian.

Suntek itself was based in Taiwan.

The first half of their range of titles was distributed in Australia by Rainbow Vision.

@Rom hunte: thanks a lot for the answer!

@high voltage: Foreign abbreviation are no problem i guess. Like "muscle car ss" and the letters are no runes symbols;)
