Gowin (高遠科技有限公司) was a publisher and developer of Game Boy and Game Boy Color games. Its earlier mono Game Boy games were developed by a team connected to Gamtec & Vast Fame, while its later Game Boy Color games were developed by a different team in mainland China.

Some of their mono games will only run on mono systems like the original Game Boy, due to the boot logo change. Others will not run on the Game Boy Advance line of systems, nor the Super Game Boy or Game Boy Player.

Trivia

  • Gowin's games are numbered with IDs GS-01 through GS-18, however it is unknown whether or not a GS14 exists.[2]
  • Eight English Gowin games were listed on their website.[3] In addition to these releases, there was an English release for GS-17 (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon).[4] Older print runs of Magic Ball were released with boxes and manuals in English.
  • Gowin advertised their monochrome game multicarts in the Wolf Weekly gaming magazine in Taiwan. Later on their color games would be featured as proper games in these magazines.[5]
  • Older Gowin games were also released (and likely developed) by companies other than Gowin. An example of this is Top Secret, which was made by Songtly.
