Gaming Ads: Seika and Seismic Software

I'm having a hard time finding information about Seika outside of a brief article at FreeAssociates that details a Consumer Electronics Show booth and marketing campaign for Seika's Nintendo Entertainment System games. As I posted a while back, Seika did work with Kemco from 1989-91 to distribute games in North America under the Kemco Seika name. Seika itself published and distributed games from the late '80s through the early '90s for computers and Nintendo platforms. There is a Seika Corporation in business today that was founded in 1947 but it's hard to say if it had anything to do with this Seika. However, it's not unusual for a company to not include its past video game operation in its corporate history as I've come across that quite a few times.

Similar to Seika, Seismic Software is a company that operated in the late '80s through the early '90s and little information is available about it. Seismic only released five games, one for the Sega Master System and the other four on the Genesis. There is also a company called Seismic Software in business today but it is unrelated.
