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. It is likely that the company was known prior to 2008 as Yimeike (usually shortened to YMK in-game) or Imaigoo. The company is based out of Shenzhen.
Some sort of relationship exists between Cube and JungleTac; a developer named Wise Wang is credited on Cube's English Alibaba page, 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 and the name appears in a VT168 demo available from VR Technology's site.
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.
