Painting by Numbers was a British game developer which developed games solely for Ocean Software. They were originally known as Impact Software Development, Ltd. The company was founded by brothers Chris R. Kerry and Steve M. Kerry. The company housed the two brothers as well as programmer Mark C. Rogers and graphic artist Jon H. Beard. All of them had previously worked for Gremlin Graphics.

The company developed their last game in 1992 and closed their doors at an unknown date.
