Scitron & Art Inc. (サイトロン・アンド・アート株式会社) was a company known mostly for releasing video game music soundtracks, but was also for a time involved in software development. [1]. Later it was primarily involved with voice and music production.

Scitron & Art was established on August 8, 1986 [2] as Digital Entertainment (デジタル・エンターテイメント) [3] by Kazusuke Obi (小尾一介), a former A&R man at Alpha Records (YMO's record company) who also started Alpha's G.M.O. Records video game music label. [4] He started Scitron & Art with members of Masanobu Endo's development company Game Studio. [5]

In 2001, the digital contents division of Scitron & Art was spun off into Scitron Digital Contents (サイトロン・デジタルコンテンツ株式会社) [6], which was acquired by Happinet as a subsidiary in 2004. [7] The business of Scitron Digital Contents was transferred to Happinet on April 1, 2006, and liquidation of the company was completed on September 20, 2006. [8] It is not known what happened to Scitron & Art.

This entry covers software development, not audio production work the company did.
