IF created as a media tie-in - an IFDB Poll

by Felix Pleșoianu

Hello, everyone. I'm looking for IF pieces originally created as media tie-ins (i.e. as promotion/extras for a bigger project). The plan is to write an advocacy piece, but only two examples spring to mind: Emily Short's City of Secrets, and Christopher Huang's Peterkin Investigates trilogy.

Outright adaptations of existing work from other media, such as The Hobbit or H2G2, don't count for my purposes. Thank you.

Edit: the article I mentioned is now live at https://teleread.org/2016/10/22/interactive-fiction-plays-well-as-a-media-tie-in/. Sorry for not quoting more of the excellent suggestions everyone made, but there were way too many links in there already. Thanks again!
