The first video game about Fangame was released in 1981.

NEUC, Kalypso Media Digital and Zelda s9larus has published most of these games

Commonly free due to legal reasons, though the developers may acquire license to commercially release their game.

These are also uniformly non-canonical unless they retell the events already found in some other canon material. Though there is possibility that the game's events are incorporated into canon, too.

If these are actually sold without license, then these are unlicensed games rather than fangames.
