King's Quest Fan Project is Alive Again, for FREE

By - Source: Tom's Hardware UK | B 1 comment

The return of the king.

Back in March, we were sad to learn that a fan-based non-profit King's Quest project had been extinguished by Activision, the new owners of the IP.

After a public outcry, Activision decided to revisit its original decision, and now we'll soon be granted a new King's Quest. The Silver Lining development team wrote in its blog:

In a wonderful turn of events, Activision reached out to the Phoenix Online team a few months ago with a desire to revisit their decision regarding The Silver Lining. After negotiations, the C&D has been officially rescinded, and Phoenix Online has been granted a non-commercial license to release The Silver Lining!

This means that fans will be able to download the next (fan fiction) chapter of King's Quest for FREE on July 10 – and that's just the first episode!

Check out some of the screenshots, artwork and trailer below.
