The success of the original Lost Treasures of Infocom prompted a follow-up collection published in 1992 and appropriately titled The Lost Treasures of Infocom II. This package contained 11 more classic Infocom titles. The games included in Lost Treasures II were:
  • Border Zone
  • A Mind Forever Voyaging
  • Plundered Hearts
  • Bureaucracy
  • Cutthroats
  • Hollywood Hijinx
  • Seastalker
  • Sherlock: The Riddle of the Crown Jewels
  • Wishbringer
  • Nord and Bert Couldn't Make Head or Tail of It
  • Trinity
Leather Goddesses of Phobos was not included, but could be ordered for $9.95 via an enclosed coupon.

The quality of the photocopied feelies and manuals was, in general, slightly better than those in the original Lost Treasures package. A few items were reproduced quite faithfully, such as the Trinity site plan and a newspaper and map of London from Sherlock. However, the games' InvisiClues were not included as before; instead, a card advertising a pay-per-minute hint line was included in the package.

In addition to being dual-format (MS-DOS and Apple Macintosh), the CD-ROM version included three extra games:

  • James Clavell's Shogun
  • Arthur: The Quest for Excalibur
  • Journey
The Soul of the Samurai and Known World maps from Shogun and the map from Journey were included separately; an added instruction manual included the Book of Hours from Arthur as well as instructions for all three added games.
