Glorysun is the name used by a programming group (and possible publisher) of unlicensed games on the Sega Mega Drive system. They are unique in that even though they are one of the most notorious groups for copyright infringement they often place their group logo prominently as a boot screen.
Much of Glorysun's work consists of hacks of older commercially released games to include references to new licensed properties (such as movies or television). Earlier releases often mimic Famicom pirates in that they contain minimal changes to the original game such as only a title screen alteration or palette change to one of the characters. Later games feature more intensive changes to sprites, text, and other graphical elements.
The only original games attributed to Glorysun are Death Caliber and the Russian translation of Barver Battle Saga that was released in that territory as Final Fantasy (possibly without consent from Chuanpu).
According to the credits within the ROM header of Death Caliber, it was developed with the TomSoft SDK with a final build date of May 17th 2002. It is unknown what, if any, connection Glorysun has to Dragon Co. or TomSoft other than using their SDK.
