The Silver Lining is out!

After almost a decade of work, being shut down and brought back twice, losing most of the team twice, and suffering delay after delay, The Silver Lining (aka King’s Quest IX) is finally out.

Or, at least, the first episode is. But still, it’s just an achievement making it this far, especially after both Vivendi AND Activision closed production down. Fan games are almost all pieces of shit, but this is actually pretty good. Way too short and exposition-heavy, but still pretty good.

Certainly better than KQVIII, at any rate.

Hey, they did it! I’m glad this managed to come out, as languishing franchises can be revitalised by different studios (Sam & Max, Monkey Island etc.)

So D, how prone to dying are you in this game?
