To the disappointment of many, earlier this year, Activision halted progress of The Silver Lining, a fan-developed sequel to King’s Quest — in production at Phoenix Online Studios — after property rights of the Sierra I.P. were transferred to them.
Luckily, things have turned around since then, and, thanks to a mutual agreement between the two parties, The Silver Lining will be seeing an “official” free release after all — as an episodic series. The debut episode, What is Decreed Must Be, will release on July 10th, with more episodes to follow throughout the remainder of the year.
You can watch the debut trailer for the game, embedded above.
