30 December 2023 Happy 2024!
A little update as we head into 2024. Hope everyone had a great 2023 - it's certainly been a good year for software archiving, as I've been able to locate a number of the GUE's "most wanted" items - in particular, Wheeler Dealers by Speakeasy Software, thanks to a great tip from someone writing.

Other games like Tank Command and Earthly Delights, and the utility Tablet Graphics have also been found! So I'm updating the list below... and still hopeful that one day someone will turn up with an original disk for Chambers of Xenobia.
6 January 2023 A few more finds
It's now 2023 and I still haven't really updated the site. That said there's been some progress in locating (and archiving) some of the most-wanted titles. Most notably, I found a copy of Lauren of the 25th Century a few months ago. This was the last of the Rhiannon Software adventure games targeted specifically towards young girls - it's great to see that it is now preserved for the future. I also located a copy of Chambers of Xenobia, a story on its own... unfortunately, the disk has a large de-magnetized area and therefore cannot be properly imaged. So I'm still looking for a disk for that one - if you have one, please, please get in touch.
30 October 2021 New news!
Wow. It's been about 8 years since I've updated this site... but hey, I am still around. Lots has happened in the last few years, in particular with the release of the Applesauce Floppy Disk Controller and the creation of the WOZ disk format for the Apple II by someone much, much more knowledgeable than me. This finally achieves the objective of creating exact images of Apple II disks suitable for preservation (copy protection included), so the disk images that you'll find on this site have now been superseded. That said, rest assured, all of the Apple II software presented here has been re-imaged in WOZ format.

What else has happened since 2014... well I've accomplished a number of my "most wanted" objectives - I've found an original copy of Fraktured Faebles and one of Dragon Side II, I've managed to get in touch with Steven Sacks (although he did not have a copy of Chambers of Xenobia, unfortunately), and most interestingly I recently (finally!) got in touch with Dale Johnson, author of Masquerade. Or rather, I got in touch with his family as sadly Dale died in 1999, which explains why it was so difficult to find information about him.

I haven't updated the rest of the site though, but one day I might. I get mail once in a while from people saying how much they enjoy the scans and information presented here, so it's not going anywhere. Meanwhile, if you happen to have a copy of any of the software I'm looking for... or if you wrote Apple II software during the early 1980s... please get in touch!
4 January 2014 Happy New Year!
Happy New Year everyone! Not a whole lot of change here this year (and in the last couple of years, actually), mostly due to a lack of time and the difficulty in obtaining information. But hey, at least what's here is not going away, and I get the occasional e-mail about it - so someone is looking once in a while!

Anyhow - if you happen to stop by here and have anything that might be of interest, either old game packages or information to contribute, then please e-mail! Have a great 2014!
21 August 2011 Just moved!
You may or may not have noticed that the GUE just moved. Our new address is The site has been updated, but if you noticed anything that doesn't work - please send an e-mail and let us know!
