The Eamon PC conversion by Jon Walker is a conversion of the standard, Apple-based Eamon adventure game system to a PC platform. Walker, operating as Wisconsin Software Systems, released the conversion in 1985, with John Nelson announcing its availability in the October issue of the club newsletter. It was also later distributed by PC-SIG on its disks 297, 298, 1038, and 1039. PC-SIG distributed two "contest" adventures, Cronum's Castle and Lord of the Underland on disks 720 and 721, though on later catalogs, these disks were either left blank or listed as "unsupported."

A number of adventures were released and announced; some were unique to Wisconsin Software Systems and others unique to PC-SIG:
