Cube Technology (Chinese: 立方科技有限公司 Lìfāng kējì yǒuxiàn gōngsī), also known as CubeTac, is a Chinese developer of game software for VR Technology's OneBus hardware.

Cube Technology claims to have been founded in 2004, but only adopted its current name in 2008[1]. It is likely that the company was known prior to 2008 as Yimeike (usually shortened to YMK in-game) or Imaigoo[2]. The company is based out of Shenzhen[3].

Some sort of relationship exists between Cube and JungleTac; a developer named Wise Wang is credited on Cube's English Alibaba page[4], but is also credited in JungleTac's EmuVT emulation software. Wise Wang may also be connected to a company called Shenzhen Biikoo Technology Co. (深圳市碧空科技有限公司) - archived versions of its website from 2008 contain references to EmuVT and game development[5] and the name appears in a VT168 demo available from VR Technology's site.

Cube's games have appeared on consoles manufactured by Macro Winners, Subor (in which case they usually contain a Chinese copyright number registered by Waixing) and Advance Bright Ltd..

Unlicensed Music Edit

One notable feature of many of Cube's 16-bit (VR168) games is that the music in them is directly sampled, likely without a license, from popular dance music; more specifically, a large majority of the music is from Memory Records' italo-disco recordings.

A listing of games with corresponding soundtracks that have been discovered so far:
