Help Save King’s Quest!

On February 28, 2010, Activision issued a Cease and Desist order against Phoenix Online Studios, creators of “The Silver Lining,” an unofficial sequel to the King's Quest series  The sequel had, in 2005, been approved for non-commercial release by the owner of the King’s Quest IP, Vivendi Universal.  The team has been working on the 5-part episodic King’s Quest Sequel for eight years (they started before 2005).  They had just completed their final milestone and were preparing to submit the game for approval to Vivendi Universal right before Activision and Vivendi merged. Immediately upon acquisition of the King’s Quest IP, Activision shut down Phoenix Studios, with no intent to uphold the previous agreements.

As a long time fan of adventure games, and someone who has always wanted a real sequel to KQ6, I am really saddened by this.  Personally, I plan not to have anything to do with Activision until they make this right.  I hope you will join me in this.  If you have a few minutes, please sign the online petition and consider sending a letter to Activision.  Resources are below.  Thank you.  Now, on with your regularly scheduled programming…
