KID Corp. (株式会社キッド) ("Kindle Imagine Develop") was a Tokyo, Japan-based publisher and developer started in December 1987, incorporated on May 12, 1988, and headed by Hisayoshi Ichikawa (市川久祥) [1] [2], formerly of Logitec and Wood Place. The company mostly developed games for other publishers through the mid-1990s but is best remembered for producing bishoujo games and visual novels in its later years.

Regista was established by scenario writer Takumi Nakazawa (中澤工) in 2004; Guyzware was established by producer Koji Kameya (亀谷恒治) in 2006. KID filed for bankruptcy in November 2006, and its assets were purchased by Cyberfront in February 2007; most of the remaining development staff joined 5pb. [3]
