The Silver Lining Articles and Interviews
« on: December 21, 2005, 03:31:36 PM »
Heya folks!

Seeing as articles are emerging all around the web related to The Silver Lining, I realized we needed a good place to collect these articles, and so I encourage you all to post the link to an article here if you find one, it doesn't have to be in english, as long as it concerns The Silver Lining it belongs here! :)

I've decided to start this off myself by listing the few articles that were scattered around on the web.


Starting with some mainstream coverage:

Actiontrip Coverage

Gamespot Coverage

Gamershell Coverage

Adrenaline Vault Coverage

MTV Coverage

1up Coverage

IGN Coverage

Boomtown Coverage

And here is some more coverage:

Kotaku Coverage

Quandary Coverage

Gameinformer Coverage

Vida Extra Coverage

Just Adventure coverage

GameSetWatch Coverage

Joystiq Coverage

Adventuregamers Coverage

Gamescloud Coverage

Brasslantern Coverage

Adventure-Eu Coverage

Shacknews Coverage

Directionalpad Coverage

Binarybonzai Coverage

Secretlair Coverage

Eurogamer Coverage

Techdirt Coverage

Gamesfirst Coverage

Gamesindustry Coverage

Totalvideogames Coverage

Gameindustry Coverage

XgpGaming Coverage

Tcmagazine Coverage

Edge Online Coverage

News0r Coverage


And in other languages:

Jeuxvideo Coverage (In French)

Dpetereit Coverage (In German)

Gamestar Coverage (In German)

Gamer.nl Coverage (In Dutch)

Adventure Island Coverage (In Dutch)

Gamer.co.il (In Hebrew)


And finally a couple of interviews:

Gamespy Interview

Jon Adventure Interview (In Spanish)


Please don't post links to weblogs, journals, stubs (very short articles) or to forum threads....

...and don't post links that date back before the announcement of the fan-license, links that are already here in this post, or were posted by somebody else in this thread!

If you want to post a long link that might stretch the forum please use the following tag: [ url=http://link]title[/url] (without the space between [ and url)

My thanks to Matt Compton from Save KQIX without whos effort I would not have found some of these articles.

Enjoy folks, and remember this thread is for links and comments about links only! Discussion about the game takes place in the The Silver Lining Thread8)

Nope didn't update it, but I had a few of those you just mentioned. I didn't have Penny Arcade, Orange Lounge Radio News, VH1 News or Meristation News..

I chose not to link to Slashdot, because it's too "stubby", and GA Forum is a forum thread... but for the others.. Kewl, thanks Say! :D

Slashdot is a huge community. and GA forum might be a forum but it has more than 200 users online in a minute, so, it's quite interesting indeed. I'll somehow try to check my list, I think there are more like Evil Avatar and Gamer's Hell that I believe do not appear in the list just yet.

And don't call me Saydie, please lol  :P

My goal in this run was only to link to articles, Slashdot merely referred to another article, which I did link to. The little that was written, was stubby. :P I also chose not to link to forums because I wasn't trying to advertise communities, but only articles and interviews that people might find interesting to read. As for Gamer's Hell and Evil Avatar, they're both in the list, I think you've misplaced your glasses, perhaps?

No links to forums, please. But thank you for posting the link, we appreciate it, I won't remove it, but I'm afraid I can't add it to my list once I update it, I'm sorry, but thanks anyway!  8)

We are in print again! ;D

The February 2006 issue of Swedish PC Gamer has a newsflash about TSL on page 15 (one of the news pages). It covers about a fourth of the page and features a cutout of our Beauty and Beast screenshot. Too bad I don't have a scanner! :(

Since the international versions of PC Gamer share a lot of material I would recommend that if you can you should flip through your respective versions to see if they have it as well!

That's awesome Petter! You should buy a copy anywho, to tell us if it's a good piece ;)

I might try looking for it here, since I live in Denmark and I know several stores that carry magazines from Sweden/Norway etc.. I'll look  8)

I have it, that's why I found the piece. :D

Here's my translation of the text:

"After the launch of the eight game in the popular adventure game series King's Quest, tings got silent. The fans shouted out for more but nothing happened. Now almost eight years later the next part is about to be launched. The interesting thing is that King's Quest IX: The Silver Lining started as a hobby project. The idea was that the game would be released for free. But that immediately led to legal conflicts between Sierra and the hopeful fans that created the game. After petitions and other actions however the publisher have realized that there is a market for the sequel. The game that earlier had the working name Every Cloak has a Silver Lining will be launched sometime next year."

Maybe it's just a guess or assumption or something.

We haven't given a certain launch date to anyone, so everything you read it's just a guess.

Hopefully this is still true:

We are still unsure of our new release date, but we can say that it will happen somewhere during 2006.

It could be that the article was written in late 2005 but held over for publication until the next issue.
Once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes...

The latest issue of the Dutch scientific magazine Kijk had an article on The Silver Lining as well. I'll see if I can get a translation up sometime soon.
