The Silver Lining (video Game)
The Silver Lining is a five-chapter episodic video fangame based on the King's Quest series, which was developed and released in free download format by Phoenix Online Studios for Microsoft Windows on July 18, 2010. The most recent release, Episode 4: ‘Tis In My Memory Locked. And You Yourself Shall Hold The Key Of It, was released on 8 November 2011. The final episode is scheduled for release in 2013.
Although the game features 3D graphics, its gameplay departs from Sierra Online's last King's Quest release, The Mask of Eternity, which was mainly criticized for its RPG-like atmosphere, and settles into that created by the previous titles (for example, the setting returns to the land of the Green Isles, visited in King's Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow, while some recurring characters include Mannanan from King's Quest III: To Heir Is Human and Pan from King's Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella). The plot itself revolves around King Graham as he desperately seeks the help of ancient druidic artifacts to undo the evil cast upon his children, Alexander and Rosella.
TSL remains the first release in over fifteen years to feature Graham's family in a new adventure, since King's Quest VII: The Princeless Bride.

Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher, all is vanity.”
