This is excellent news! Also, great that the first episode is already prepared for release.

In additions to all excitments, I do recall saying a comment on TSL few months ago that it seems were were playing actual game in real world with all those battles that took place to find out we actually won again and again!

Brilliant news!

I must say I really thought that it was the end second time round but I'm really pleased to be proved wrong!

Well done to the whole team.

It's out. And judging by the first hour or so into the game, it's grand. Dark and kind of nostalgic to see the green isles in full 3d...

Finished the 1st episode. Congrats to the creators as they did a really impressive job!

Overall, amazing production values (everything: graphics, music, coding, voices!) and very nice interactivity and responses in the palace and around the city.

I was a bit disappointed that this episode had only 1 puzzle to solve. Hopefully, the following ones will be more focused on providing adventure game challenges.

Over too soon though. Quite short.

Played 20 minutes or so this morning and i'm very impressed so far. High production values and no shortage of details/animations etc.

Great to be back in the Land of the Green Isles!

Just installed and played for a couple minutes. Great so far!

I would think this would be getting more buzz around here...

I can't believe no one has started talking about this game on here. Am I the only one that is excited that they seemed to have Completely Ignored KQ8? They picked up right after KQ7 (which I actually liked).

Funny, I was going to post the same thing. Just played through Episode 1. Pretty good so far - it's light on "adventuring" but mostly sets up the story and characters. Some people may complain about outdated graphics, but it's good enough for an unpaid project.

When's Episode 2 coming out?

AG's review is up

I enjoyed the episode -- it really felt like "coming home" after so many years. Of course I wish it had been longer with more actual gameplay, but the second episode is supposed to resolve that...

I really liked it, and after all that buzz on the forums, I also would have thought there would be a bit more discussion.

Like, who do you think the cloaked figure is? And what about the doomsdayer?

I keep having this irrational wish that Cedric would fly in...

Glad you're pleased Cesar, and seeing as you're here...

Any news on the release date for part 2?

Hi everyone, I'd like to inform you that we (Adventure-Treff) have just published my newest interview. This time I had the pleasure of asking Cesar Bittar tons of questions about The Silver Lining, his past at Telltale Games, his special relation to the Gabriel Knight series and much more. I really hope you like the result!

I m playing through the 4th episode right now, and found this thread which it seems like be forgotten .

i must say this is the best freeware game i ever played so far, developers made a great job and some hard work i don't see in big commercial Adventures sometimes.
