December 12, 2005 - The fan-driven campaign to save King's Quest IX has been successful. On Friday, Vivendi Universal Games announced that they have agreed to allow the fan-made game "King's Quest IX" to be released, under the new title of "The Silver Lining." The group making the game will be granted a fan license.

"We are so thrilled with this news," says Matt Compton, one of the members of the Save King's Quest IX campaign. "We were very hopeful that if we organized the fans of the King's Quest series, we would be able to get Vivendi's attention. It feels so good to know that we were successful in doing that."

My mind is officially blown. An online petition changed a publisher's mind concerning protection of their intellectual property? I half expect it to rain fire now!

I was a huge fan of Sierra back in the day. What I like about the screen shots here is they give the feeling of the old games with nice graphics. "So you wanna be a hero" is still on of my favorite games of all time. I know it isn't KQ but it was fun as heck.

Yay! Graphics or not, I'm on it. KQ is awesome. These guys have even included that same "streamlined for running your ass off" hat.
