Another loving fan-made continuation to the King's Quest series and a way to provide the proper closure that King's Quest VIII failed to provide. I was quite excited to see this project continue and gain the backing of the original King's Quest voice actor as well as Roberta Williams herself! http://www.postudios.com/blog/forum/index.php?topic=8877.0
“…I am deeply honored that a group of devoted fans have dedicated themselves to reviving the characters, lands and quests of my adventure game series, King’s Quest. Without the bravery and persistence of these volunteers – and it should be stressed that this game was developed by fans over ten long years without pay and in their own free time -- it is almost certain that King’s Quest would have been relegated to a forgotten obscurity – its story left untold. Now, there is a chance that many can truly find out what happens to the royal family of the Kingdom of Daventry." - Roberta Williams.
From Pheonix Online Studio's FAQ page - Inspired by the King's Quest series of the 1980's and '90's, The Silver Lining is a non-commercial game that follows King Graham of Daventry as he searches for a cure to a terrible curse laid on his children by a sinister cloaked figure, and begins to learn that not everything in their lives and pasts is as it seems.
