It looks like the fans have gotten a big corporation to relent in the release of the long-in-development King's Quest
fan-created game project. A few months after Activision
, the current rights holder to the classic Sierra-created adventure game series, put a "cease-and-desist" order on the years-in-the-making project, the developers, Phoenix Online Studios
, have announced a new agreement with Activision that will allow them to release the game for free after all.
The game, The Silver Lining
, will be released in episodic format beginning July 10 with the first chapter, "What is Decreed Must Be".
The storyline will let players control King Graham once again as he has to fight off a curse that threatens his children. You can check out a trailer for the game after the jump:
