Activision Shuts Down KQ Fan Game The Silver Lining 02/28/2010
After eight years of toil and sacrifice (and no paycheque) the team behind the King's Quest-inspired game, The Silver Lining, has been ordered by Activision to shut down.  The team worked very hard to receive a non-commercial license for the game when Sierra was owned by Vivendi Universal.  However, Sierra is now owned by Activision and they seem to have no interest in allowing this game to continue.  The first part of the game was scheduled for release this spring.

There is a petition available for fans and supporters of The Silver Lining over at

I was really looking forward to giving their game a spin. It's been a lot of years since I've played a pure adventure game and I was somewhat holding out to let The Silver Lining be my first one again.

Oh well. Hats off to TSL team for their hard work. Hopefully the skills they built making the game to this point will help them find another project.

It just breaks my heart that Pitfall Harry just killed King Graham.
