WARP is a now-defunct video game developer. Founded by Japanese musician, Kenji Eno, WARP was composed of five members and was dedicated to creating interactive cinema. Their most successful series of games, the D series, featured the same lead character, Laura, and were known for their musical scores. Fumito Ueda, who would later go on to design Ico, once worked for WARP.

The WARP logo (four television screens displaying the four letters of the developer's name) was designed by Eno and designer Tomohiro Miyazaki.[1]

After D2, the company's last game, they changed their name to Superwarp and left the video game industry, widening their scope to network services, DVD products, and online music.[2]

In 2005, Superwarp officially announced that it was retired and WARP founder, Kenji Eno, founded a new video game development company named From Yellow to Orange. Eno fulfilled the role of President and CEO until his death in February 2013.[2]
