SACRAMENTO, Calif., December 9, 2010 - Phoenix Online Studios, the fan group behind the King’s Quest-inspired game The Silver Lining, is excited to announce The Silver Lining Soundtrack: Volume 1 and a new e-card website, just in time for the holidays. The next installment of the episodic adventure game series isn’t far behind; “Episode 3: My Only Love Sprung from My Only Hate” is set to release in January.
Now available as a free download at http://www.tsl-game.com, The Silver Lining Soundtrack: Volume 1 features more than 30 original compositions from the game’s first two episodes, including two versions of the haunting theme song “The Day You Were Gone.” With high-resolution packaging artwork also available for free download, fans can assemble hard copies of the soundtrack to keep or give as gifts to the King’s Quest fans on their holiday lists.
The newly launched e-card website at http://www.postudios.com/sendcard features a number of holiday-themed images from the Silver Lining universe that fans can send via email. Between now and January 1, each person who sends an e-card will be entered into a raffle to win a professionally-produced hard copy of the soundtrack and other prizes. The e-card site also offers a sneak peek at some of the custom images that will appear in a 2011 calendar Phoenix Online plans to make available to fans in early January.
“Our fans have given us so much over the years, we wanted to give something back to them this holiday season,” says Katie Hallahan, Public Relations Manager for Phoenix Online. “A lot of us remember a Christmas morning when we unwrapped a copy of King’s Quest and couldn’t wait to play it! We’re hoping our fans will relive that moment with this soundtrack, and that they’ll give the gift of Daventry all over again.”
Since the release of Episode 2 in September, Phoenix Online’s volunteer team has been hard at work on the upcoming third episode, “My Only Love Sprung from My Only Hate,” which will launch on January 29, 2011.
