A fan-produced Kings Quest sequel is shut down. What a way to treat your brand’s most loyal followers.
Recently, however, ownership of the Sierra IP changed hands and
became the property of Activision. After talks and negotiations in the
last few months between ourselves and Activision, they have reached the
decision that they are not interested in granting a non-commercial
license to The Silver Lining, and have asked that we cease production and take down all related materials on our website.
As before, we must and will comply with this decision, as much as we may wish we could do otherwise.
cannot say enough how much we appreciate the support we have had over
these years from our fans. Without you, we would never have gotten this
far. There would be no game to develop, and no one to develop it for.
You have been amazing and steadfast, and we will always remember that
and appreciate it more than we can say.
Sadly, after eight years of dedicated work and even more dedicated fans, The Silver Lining project is closing down.
