The Silver Lining
« on: December 09, 2005, 10:02:24 AM »
Phoenix Online Studios is proud to announce that Vivendi Universal Games has granted us with a license to continue development on the KQIX project.  As part of the agreement, the name of the game will change from "King's Quest IX: Every Cloak Has A Silver Lining" to "The Silver Lining".  Further details can be found on the Home page.

We would like to thank all of you, as well as the SaveKQIX.org team for your continued support during this time.  The Silver Lining would not exist without you.  It means a great deal to us in having such a strong community supporting us all the way. :)

I've just sent an e-mail to VU thanking them for the 'fangame' license... and you?. ;)

This will be the best spring game!

EDIT:
Note: I've not written down the year or the country so 'spring' can be for me (in Spain) in November. Waiting for it! (and for translate it into Spanish ;)

This has made my day! Does this mean that all the characters will remain form KQ but the tile just won't have KQ in it?

Maybe it's because she's different--not the same

THIS THE BEST NEWS EVER (or at least since a long time ago... ;))

I'm very happy and I can't express my gratitude to POS and SaveKQIX.org you've just made my day !!!

I am also sending a 'thanks' mail to VUG for allowing you to continue with this "fans license". POS rocks and should live forever !

As the previous post just asked: Is the title the only change made ? or other names/locations will be change either ?



Please DO count of me if you need anything. I'd be more than happy to help.

Let's save KQIX and revive adventure gaming !
