    King's Quest: The Silver Lining
    Fan-made Sequel


    King's Quest: The Silver Lining is a fan-made sequel which previously received a cease-&-deist after Activision Blizzard obtained the rights to the series. Fans quickly united and supported the yet to be released game through twitter comments, facebook postings, and e-mails to the copyright holders. Activison has finally consented and the game is now available to the public for free.

    The game itself is being released in a series of 5 episodes. The first can be obtained from the official homepage, linked below.

    The development company, Phoenix Online Game Development, has announced that they will be releasing their own unique adventure game known as Corridor 9, sometime in the future.

    It was summum of PC gaming in late 80s early 90s. A series of adventures where the hero had to solve riddles by doing some actions to get throught the storyline.
    they are listed as abandonware now so you can get the original serie easy now

    I've never even heard of this before, but I'm thrilled that they allowed this. The last time I saw something with this much detail was Chrono Trigger Resurrection.

    This was one of Sierra's big adventure series back in the day when people still made adventure games, LucasArts and Sierra being the big two.

    You can get the point and click remakes with speech of KQI and KQII at http://www.agdinteractive.com/games/games.html

    KQIII point and click remake with speech is here
    http://www.infamous-adventures.com/kq3/

    KQV, KQVI, and KQVII are point and click with speech since they were released on CD.

    Pretty cool. KQ6 is still the best in the series. It had everything!

    By the way, the cheesy song actually fits the KQ series perfectly. Does anyone remember, "Girl In the Tower?"

    "I'm reaching out..."
    "Please tell me what to do..."

    Never heard about this until now.
    It doesn't look that interesting though I should reserve judgement until I play it.

    This is cool in that it came out, but I was always a bigger fan of the Quest for Glory series, in particular the 4th one, Shadows of Darkness. I'd be pretty happy if they would come up with new character models and prevent the game ending crashes and do not return type save scenarios. In fact, I'd gladly pay $50 if they would do to QfG what they did to Monkey Island.

    It's nice that it came out but it really isn't much of a game.. Episode 1 that is is super short and very much too easy for a proper adventure game. I may try Episode 2 but meh. I loved the original Sierra games but these just didn't have the same wow and cool factor as those did.
