Sunware Development Co. of Las Vegas, Nevada, primarily made conversions for leading publishers. The programmers eventually became fed up with management and left the company, causing it to collapse.

As this was happening, Sunware was working on an important conversion, Pitfall! for the Commodore 64. Activision ended up suing and brought in programmer Peter Filiberti (Nightraiders) to finish the game. Filiberti later started Applied Computer Technology.
