PAX East 2010: King's Quest fan made game project not quite dead

Last month a long-in-development fan-made continuation of the classic King's Quest adventure game series was shut down due to a cease-and-desist order by the franchise's current owners Activision. Now the makers of the non-commercial game, The Silver Lining, say they want to take the next step and purchase the intellectual rights to the King's Quest franchise from the publisher.

Our sister site Joystiq spoke to the game's co-project director and art director Richard Flores at PAX East 2010 this weekend who stated their intentions to purchase the rights "if an online movement to reverse Activision's decision to stop production on the title was unsuccessful." The report has no details on how the developer, Phoenix Online Studios, plans to raise the money to accomplish this but we are guessing it's going to take an amount in at least the six figure range for Activision to be interested.
