Not to be confused with Soft Machine

Sofmachine, Inc. was a company co-founded by Garth Dollahite, Jim Dramis, and Paul Urbanus, who wrote TI-99/4A games at Texas Instruments. [1] It was incorporated on March 31, 1983. [2]

Due to a lack of venture capital funding and TI's exit from home computers, Sofmachine was unable to manufacture and market its three original games. Databiotics eventually published these under license. [3]
