KID was founded in 1988, with capital of 160 million yen. In the early 1990s, it served primarily as a contract developer. Notable titles from this era include Burai Fighter, Low G Man, G.I. Joe, Isolated Warrior and Recca. In 1997, it began porting PC games to games consoles. In 1999, it released an original title called Memories Off on PlayStation, which later became its first well-known series. In 2000, it released another original title called Infinity which became the second well-known series. This game was later renamed Never7 ~the end of infinity~ and Infinity became the series name. It also created the popular underground PlayStation game Board Game Top Shop.
In 2005, KID became a sponsor of the Japanese drama series Densha Otoko.
The company declared bankruptcy in 2006. However in February 2007 it was announced that KID's intellectual properties had been acquired by the Cyber Front corporation, who would continue all unfinished projects.
