Vast Fame Co. Ltd. (Chinese: 廣譽科技有限公司; pinyin: Guǎng yù kējì yǒuxiàn gōngsī) is a now-defunct Taiwanese unlicensed developer of Game Boy games based out of Dali City, Taiwan, founded in 1999 and with their last known game published in 2003.[1]

One common feature found in most of their games is a sound engine stolen from Rockman World 5; in fact, song 14 in the GBS rip of Rockman DX3 is literally the corresponding tune from Rockman World 5 with its pitches changed.
