Samantha Swift Done, a Mysterious Game Request

I finished my video walkthrough for Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses of Athena. It turns out that it's more fun to play the game by yourself than it is to make a video walkthrough for it.

Expect more of me doing voice acting in this video.

In any case, the video walkthrough is finished, and unless I get lazy, a text walkthrough will soon follow! I wonder what my next gaming adventure will be.


Actually, I got an email from someone today, who is looking for an old, early 1990's game. Here's what the person said about the game:
It was really fun but for the life of me I can't remember the name of it and was wondering if you could help me. I remember elements of it and basically the plot of the game was this beautiful princess is sitting by this lake at the opening of the game and she peers into it and all of a sudden is pulled into the water and down into ths fantasy world where she is turned into an orge type creature whilst her mother searches frantically for her. I remember that you could play as both the mother and the princess character. Her name is Rowena. I think. I know this is a farfetched out there on a longshot question, but any help is much appreciated. Thanks a bunch!

My response was basically, "I don't know what game you're talking about, but if you figure it out, let me know! I wouldn't mind playing it!"

Do any of you blog readers know what this game is called, by any chance? I led the requester to a semi-exhaustive list of pre-1994 games. Hopefully, this game will be found, I will be able to play it, and it will be awesome. If not, there are other games on my "to play" list, including the Pajama Sam series.

its called kings quest 7. i have it at home:
its about a mother and daughter named Valanice and rosela, and the mother wants the daughter to get married and they get sucked by some weird vortex... anyway the daughter turns into a troll and is engaged to be married to the king of trolls i think, and the mother is on a deserted island.
its basicly about how they find each other and save the land... it was pretty fun all in all...
im pretty sure this was the game she was speaking of.
