Game Duets

I like the idea of two games that work well together. Games with shared worlds that tell related but distinct stories. Two complete games that can be played separately, but are meant to be played back to back or even at the same time! I call these pairings Game Duets. That's what I'm trying to do with Mask and Crown.
But I might like Game Duets even better if the two games were made by separate designers. I think that the storytelling game community could make some really interesting pairings. And this would give us an excuse to collaborate with another designer we like.
What Game Duets would you like to see? What would you like to make? Who would you work with?
A generation ship duet with an alien diplomacy game by Joshua A.C. Newman and a survival horror game by Rafael Chandler? A kindergarten playground duet with jungle gym board game by Daniel Solis and LARP about making friends with the new kid by Emily Care Boss?
