The Silver Lining is a fan-made sequel (in episodic form) in all but name to Sierra's beloved old adventure series, Kings Quest. It's a legacy this new title wears proudly on its billowing, medieval sleeves.
When last heard from, those behind a long-in-development, fan-made King's Quest sequel were on the verge of an agreement with Activision allowing them to finally complete their project. This afternoon, that news came. The Silver Lining will finally be completed.
You love a video game and you want a sequel. So you decide, with friends, to make one. A decade passes; your game never gets done. The companies that own the original games have shut you down twice. This is when it might be time for David to agree that Goliath has won.
