Aliases K. Eno, EIM, Ltd.

Kenji Eno was a Japanese game developer and composer. He founded the game development company EIM, Ltd. (Entertainment Imagination and Magnificence) after he quit working at Interlink. He later closed the company down because he did not want to use licensed characters in his games. He later founded the company Warp which also produced video games. He only scored the music to a few games. Kenji continued developing video games at his most recent game developer FYTO (From Yellow to Orange).

Besides working on music for games, Eno had released some solo albums of his own in Japan which had given him some recognition in Japan, but not so much in the western regions.

Unfortunately, on February 20, 2013, Kenji died from heart failure because of high blood pressure. His music and games will always be remembered.

Music Development


Kenji used a sound driver by Michiya Hirasawa which he heavily modified.

He also used Tsukasa Masuko's sound driver in some of the games he worked on, in which he entered the music in assembly macros in DOS, probably on a PC-9801 series.
