The first video game about Tutorial was released in 1984.

Electronic Arts, 2K Games and Ubisoft has published most of these games

Help screens or overlayed cue sheets that simply list the controls can also be considered as some minimalistic tutorials, but should be noted in the comments on their limited scope.
