Manley & Associates was a video game developer founded in 1982, which developed over 70 titles for video game publishers, including Electronic Arts, Activision, Disney, GameTek, MECC and Spectrum Holobyte. Many of the company's early titles were one or two person projects created in founder Ivan Manley's house, but eventually it grew to roughly 60 people working from an office park in Issaquah, Washington.
In the mid-1990s, Manley & Associates did a number of ports for Electronic Arts and was subsequently acquired by EA in 1996. Explaining the decision to sell the company to EA, Ivan Manley said that in order to invest in newer technologies, Manley & Associates had to either become a publisher or merge with an established publisher. The studio was relocated to Bellevue, Washington and renamed Electronic Arts Seattle. EA Seattle closed in 2002.
