Warp is a Japanese video game company founded by Kenji Eno in 1994. They are best known for the D series. Sometime after the release of D-2, the company was renamed to Superwarp and shifted their focus into information technology. It never materialized and the company closed down around 2006, when Kenji Eno left to start a new company, From Yellow To Orange.

1st Logo (August 6, 1994-1995)

Visuals: On a black background, there are four television sets. They each contain the letters "WARP." as well as a different background inside: the first has a test pattern, the second is a cyan background, the third resembles a picture of a coastal area with a house near it, and the fourth is on a black background.


  • On the first trailer to D, the logo is seen spinning and sliding to different sections of the screen before returning to the center.
  • On the PS1 port of Trip'd, the TV sets are sliding; the first and third from the left and the second and fourth from the right.

Technique: A still digital graphic.

Audio: None.

Availability: Seen on Trip'd (known as Uchū Seibutsu Flopon-kun in Japan) for both the 3DO and PS1. The still variant can be seen on the latter game as well as the fourth trailer to D.

2nd Logo (April 1995-December 23, 1999)

Visuals: On a zooming starfield, the 4 television screens from before come tumbling in from all corners of the screen, with trails following behind them. The screen then come together to form a square formation in the center of the screen, continuing to move and create trails. When all the screens turn to face the front, they all come together to become one, eventually becoming static. The single screen slowly zooms in towards the screen before the bottom left screen's picture appears and they all spread out into a vertical line. When read downwards, it spells out the word from before. The starfield continues to zoom as we fade out.

Variant: On the secret movie to D2, the logo has a blue-gold hue.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A dramatic-sounding soothing string/piano theme.

Audio Variants:

  • On Enemy Zero, a different, dramatic string soundtrack plays.
  • On the secret movie to D2, an chime glissando accompanied with whooshes is heard. In the second half, a hip-hop beat consisting of a strange male laugh plays.

Availability: Seen on D for the 3DO, PS1 and the Sega Saturn; also appears on a small selection of other 3DO and Saturn games such as Flopon World. Also appears on the original D PC release (the 2016 re-release may also have this logo).

3rd Logo (1990s)

Visuals: On a black background, the text in Japanese "From now on" and "Regards!" appear on top and underneath the logo from the previous logos, now horizontally aligned.

Technique: A still digital graphic.

Audio: None.

Availability: Only seen on a behind the scenes video of the company.

4th Logo (March 11-December 23, 1999)

Visuals: On a black background, a wall of 20 television screens are seen, all tilted at an angle. When the logo starts to fade in, all except for one on the right, which shows a full view, appear to show the Earth. The screens then switch to color bars, albeit 2 screens briefly show the Earth on the bottom and near the top right before switching to a full image of the color bars. The screens then switch to static, this time with a screen on the left showing color bars before switching to the smaller shot of static. The screens, bar the one in the top middle part showing static then the full, smaller video of it, then switch to the RPG Maker/Dragon Quest-like part with the camera moving around the player. The screens then turn off as 4 of them drop down from the top of the screen and they all turn on, with the reflections disappearing from the wall of screens. The stack zooms out and the letters appear on the screen to form the logo from before quickly fading out.


  • On D2, the background goes to black when the wall of TV screens turn off.
  • On D2 Shock, a different animation sequence in the same style as the normal logo plays. It starts off with the four TV sets falling down with the top three turning on. The camera pans into the fourth one while a copy of said TV zooms out, cutting off the three TVs. When both TV sets align, the one zooming out turns on and continues to zoom out, revealing the standard logo from the previous logo.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A dramatic synth arpeggio.

Availability: Seen on Real Sound: Kaze no Regret and D2 for the Dreamcast.
