A quick entry for a graphical text adventure that was due out by Rhiannon Software, where they were intending to put out an entire series of games with different themes by creators Elisabeth Stott and Lucy Ewell.
Two titles which managed to make it out were Jenny of the Prairie and Cave Girl Clair, but two other titles – Chelsea of the South Sea and Lauren of the 25th Century were not so lucky.
It is possible that they were released, but just in limited numbers. But we need more help to try and find them to ensure they are preserved.
Can you help?

This game was at least released for the Apple II. For instance, one of the US libraries listed at Worldcat has it:
Perhaps the documentation could provide more clues regarding other versions, including a C64 one.
Good suggestion Trypticon! Usually they have credits or similar in the documentation, which could be very helpful. I’ll see what I can find!
I forgot to add, I think “Rihannon”, might be a misspelling, I’ve only seen “Rhiannon” elsewhere so far.
Thanks Trypticon! More than likely i’ve misspelled it! ;) All fixed with thanks.
This game absolutely existed! It was called Chelsea of the South Sea Islands, and I played it extensively as a kid on an Apple IIe. Check out this review of the series in the April 30, 1984, issue of InfoWorld by Scott Mace (page 41).
I was best friends with the creators daughter. It was very real!
Hi Tiffany, do you recall what your friend’s parents were called?
