The King has returned. The Quest lives on.

“The game is very true to the original series and features many of the storylines and characters, especially, of King’s Quest VI. I found it beautiful to play. I, too, like many other fans, would like to see how this story unfolds!”

– Roberta Williams, Game Designer and Creator of the King’s Quest series

November 10, 2016 - The Silver Lining: Haunted Castle Experience Available Now! And Episode 5 Coming in 2017!

We are thrilled to release today The Silver Lining: Haunted Castle Experience and to announce that the highly-anticipated final episode of their King’s Quest fangame The Silver Lining will be releasing in 2017! The Silver Lining: Haunted Castle Experience as the player walks through a haunted version of the Isle of the Crown, as well as creepy versions of scenes and characters from the first four Episodes. The game is available for free exclusively at the Phoenix Online Store (store.POStudios.com) for PC, with Mac, Linux, and a VR-compatible with the HTC Vive versions coming soon.

 ”We’ve been steadily working on Episode 5 for a long time, and we’re finally at a point where we feel we can confidently promise it will be out next year,” said Katie Hallahan, PR Director and co-designer of The Silver Lining. “The Haunted Castle Experience is a unique way to give a sneak peek of what’s to come while having some fun with the Halloween season, plus we got to test the waters with a VR-compatible experience. And this is just the beginning of the lead-up for Episode 5. There’ll be more news coming as we get into 2017 and closer to announcing a definite release date.”

In the first four episodes of The Silver Lining, King Graham traveled the Land of the Green Isles in search of a cure for a sleeping curse placed on his children, Alexander and Rosella. In the process, a thousand-year-old prophecy concerning his family and the mysterious Shadrack, leader of the Black Cloak Society, came to light along with deeply hidden secrets about Valanice and their family’s enemies. Episode 5 will see Graham and Valanice journey into the land of dreams to free their children and confront their enemies in one final stand of darkness and light. All four episodes are available for free for PC at the Phoenix Online Store (store.POStudios.com).
