Let us take the book series TombQuest, by Michael Northrop. This book series is published by Scholastic, and they have a website for it. This series is a multiplatform, which means that there is a game associated with it. Like (which is also a multiplatform). In that game, the connection is obvious - you hunt for the clues. And in another multiplatform, Infinity Ring, the connection is even more obvious - the game is part of the story, and each book picks up where the game left off, and vice versa. However, I'm having trouble finding a connection between the book TombQuest and its video game counterpart. In the book, the main characters have to

Fight a group called the 'Death Walkers',

And in the game, you have to build your tomb, and invade other players tombs, avoiding their traps, and try to steal their treasure. However, I don't see how they are connected. Then again, I've only read the first book (and I haven't played in a looong time. I was, however, one of the fifty beta testers for the game).

Is there any connection?


Would a question such as the above be on topic?

    Is this related to the recent Assassin's Creed question and the related meta? It appears to me that community is pretty much for it.

  • No, not related. This is different - TombQuest game is not novelized (AFAIK) and the book is a book.

Yes.

It's about a book, even if it's about something else as well. Even if the answer is no, that's a statement about the book series, and proving it requires knowledge of the book series. Books are literature.
