Marvin Glass and Associates was an American arcade developer, founded by Marvin Glass (1914-1974) when he was 27. They originally created toys, but when they were contracted by Bally-Midway, they started creating arcade games. The company only developed six titles; Tapper, Domino Man, Journey, Timber, Turbo Tag, and Wacko.
Several MGA staff later started Big Monster Toys, which still exists to this day, however, they do not make video games.
Richard Ditton programmed MGA's arcade sound driver which utilized two AY-3-8910 PSG chips running at 2 MHz. To create the music, a Synclavier was connected to the arcade and music was played live into the arcade.
