Looks like a countdown for something. Last time I heard there were negotiating with Activision (they own the IP right?) to be able to continue the work on the game.

*snort* Given that César is the head of The Silver Lining's design team, I'm preeeetty sure that question was rhetorical.

You know the answer, don't you, César? In fact you're one of the only people who knows the answer. You're just here to tease us. TAUNT us, with mysterious countdowns and hints and raised hopes. CURSE YOU, BITTAR, YOU MAD PUPPETMASTER!

(oh god I hope that countdown is to what I HOPE it is pleasepleaseplease....)

...You're an evil man, Bittar.

...And I will totally be here in four hours to see that clock run out, but still. Evil.

For all those who have trouble working out the math on that countdown clock, here's a handy conversion chart.

the quote makes me think the game's been "changed" and "reborn" in a new not-going-to-get-sued form
extra points if you guys put a subtle insult hidden in the game to Sierra/Activision

To Our Fans:

They say lightning never strikes twice, but once again, you’ve proven them wrong.

We are extremely happy to announce that our project, The Silver Lining, will definitely see the light of day!

In a wonderful turn of events, Activision reached out to the Phoenix Online team a few months ago with a desire to revisit their decision regarding The Silver Lining. After negotiations, the C&D has been officially rescinded, and Phoenix Online has been granted a non-commercial license to release The Silver Lining!

Our team is ecstatic about this, and as hard as we’ve worked for 8 years, it’s the tireless belief and support of you, our fans, that has made this possible. We want to give special thanks to the Save The Silver Lining team, who put together and ran an amazing and organized campaign, and rallied our fantastic fans to make a difference. You made it possible once, and now we’ve done what seemed impossible for a second time! The support we received from all of you was amazing and honestly blew us away. We always knew we had some of the best fans out there, but even so, wow! We will always be grateful for your unending belief in us.

And that’s not the only good news we have for you: the first episode of The Silver Lining will be released in just two weeks on July 10th! The long wait is almost over, and we couldn’t have done it without you!


Awesome!!!

This makes me so happy. I thought that the Kings Quest saga was dead when Roberta & Ken Williams retired and sold Sierra.
