A thread on the artwork created or reused for the covers of the Indiana Jones games, starting with the movie poster from Raiders of the Lost Ark by the late Richard Amsel (The Dark Crystal, Mad Max 3, Flash Gordon), reused years later for Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures.
The Atari 2600 adaptation of Raiders of the Lost Ark, illustrated by James Kelly.
One of the poster illustrations from Temple of Doom, painted by Bruce Wolfe was reused for Indiana Jones in the Lost Kingdom.
Drew Struzan painted another movie poster for Temple of Doom, which was also used for the NES adaptation of the movie.
While mostly known for his movie posters; Drew Struzan painted a few illustrations specifically for video games, including Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine and Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb.
William L. Eaken joined Lucasarts in 1990 and on Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and The Dig; he designed their cover art as well as some backgrounds. He also did the cover art for Instruments of Chaos Staring Young Indiana Jones.

BEEP announced a re(?)release of Ys I and II for X68000. Only the first episode was officially released on this computer, but a doujin version had also been developed. It is not yet clear which version will be released.
The X68000 version of Ys developed by Dempa Micomsoft differs from the other versions on several points. The title screen takes the cover illustration made by Yoshitaka Amano, leaving the title screen originally created by Tomoo Yamane. Image
The logo was designed by Hiroshi Hirata, mangaka and famous calligrapher who also designed the katakana version of the Akira logo. ImageImage

A short thread on some of the first MMORPGs released on console, starting with Dragon's Dream (Saturn, 1997), the first known representative of the genre.
The need to buy a modem, the costs of online gaming in those days and a timid press coverage make it a rather obscure title, although a video recorded around 1998 is available on Youtube :
