Overworks (オーバーワークス) was a video game development division within Sega. It was formed after an internal reorganisation in 2000 and is thought to have been formed mostly by staff of Sega Software R&D Dept. 7 (formerly Sega CS2).

Overworks' main task was to continue the Sakura Taisen series. It also created the Guru Guru Onsen line of games.

In 2003 Overworks merged with WOW Entertainment to become Sega WOW (briefly "WOW Works")Media:IR EN 2003-07-30.pdf[2].
