gleam! was the first emulator ever to be released for the Dreamcast. It was created by Chuck Mason. It isn't based on anything, it was made from scratch and has 3 different CPU cores.

gleam! is a working NES emulator; working, in the sense that it is compatible with most games. However, it's been discontinued. Although its source code has been made public, the project has never been picked up again by any other developer. Today, emulators such as NesterDC and NesterDC SE have by far surpassed gleam! in terms of speed and compatibility and should therefore be used.
