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

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!

There were two Inform 6 games "The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters: Cardinal Chang" and "The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters: Celeste Temple" both by Jefferson Rabb for Random House in 2006. They were available at the time from www.randomhouse.com/bantamdell/glassbooks/gamesite/index.html .
