The Silver Lining

Okay, if you know me personally you know that I enjoy adventure games... by that I don't mean the adventure/action/platforming goodness that exists in games like Jak and Daxter, Ratchet and Clank, Kingdom Hearts, Super Mario Bros. and a whole bunch of others that fall under that kind of broad general label...

I mean games like King's Quest, Space Quest, Police Quest, Quest for Glory.... um, SBCGFAP...
They made you think abstractly, they made you ponder and consider possibilities.  They told a story.

Those point-and-click games of yore are holding on tight in this era of instant-action and immediate gratification.
As of September 18th, The Silver Lining - an unofficial-but-IP-Holder-approved fan sequel to the King's Quest franchise - will see the release of Episode 2, Two Households.  It's totally FREE - won't cost you anything!

Do yourself a favor and download it when it's released.  The original games were all fun romps through the
Kingdom of Daventry and the lands beyond its borders... they are worth playing.  If you're concerned solely with graphics, please try your best to get over that... I'll say it again.  They are worth playing.

Pick it up at when the time comes!
