Datasoft, Inc.

Datasoft was founded by Pat Ketchum in 1980. This company was based out of Chatsworth, California. When the company first started, there were about 15 in-house programmers. Ketchum was in his late 20's at the time. Ketchum acquired as many trademark licenses as possible. As a result, they published many games from famous tv shows, cartoons and movies. They also ported some games from arcades and other computer systems (Mr. Do and Pooyan). Sometime after 1987, Samuel L. Poole and Ted Hoffman were some sort of business execs at Datasoft when the company was beginning to fold. These two men bought the left over assets and the name Datasoft and renamed the company Intellicreations. One of Datasofts HUGE investors was Gilette...the razor company. For some reason they pulled out right before the company went under. During its lifetime, Datasoft published some games for the C-64, Tandy, Atari and Apple ][.
