Digital Pictures was a video game developing company, founded by Tom Zito. This was following Zito's failure during his time at Hasbro to release the game system known as Project N.E.M.O. in 1989 with two games he had already developed for the system -- Night Trap and Sewer Shark -- that would be released for the Sega CD by this company.

The company is credited for pushing forward the use of live actors and interactive full motion video in videogames during the early to mid 1990s. Notably, Tom Zito and associates came under fire from numerous interest groups and Senators Joseph Lieberman and Herbert Kohl in 1993 after the release of Night Trap, which ultimately resulted in the conception of the ESRB videogame rating system, along with Midway's Mortal Kombat.
