From Yellow to Orange Inc. (shortened as FYTO; formerly Warp Inc. and Super Warp Inc.) is a Japanese video game developer founded by Kenji Eno in 1994. Eno headed the company until his death in February 2013.

History[edit]

From Yellow to Orange was founded under the name Warp in 1994.[1] The Warp logo—four television screens displaying the four letters of the developer's name—was designed by founder Kenji Eno and designer Tomohiro Miyazaki.[2] Warp developed several interactive cinema games, their most successful series being D. In 2000, following the release of D2, Warp changed its name to Super Warp.[1] Super Warp exited the video game industry, widening its scope to network services, DVD products, and online music.[3]

After receiving an investment from the company Neoteny Inc., Super Warp changed its name to From Yellow to Orange (FYTO) in 2001.[1] FYTO proceeded to release the game You, Me, and the Cubes in 2009.[3] Eno headed the company as president and chief executive officer (CEO) until his death February 2013.[3] Following this, Katsutoshi Eguchi became the company's new CEO.[4] Eno's final project, Kakexun, became a collaborative effort between FYTO and Naoya Sato's company Warp2.[4]
