Considering it's been 16 years since the last official King's Quest game, waiting two months for the second episode of The Silver Lining wasn't so painful. The wait is now over, however, as Phoenix Online Studios has released the new installment of the fan-made KQ series, Two Households.
July's What is Decreed Must Be was more of a teaser for what's to come, with King Graham witnessing his son and daughter falling victim to an evil curse, then preparing himself for the journey ahead. In Two Households, Graham's quest to find a cure begins in earnest as he "travels the Green Isles to gather the needed ingredients, all the while searching for answers about the cloaked stranger who attacked them -- a greater foe than any Graham has faced."
The developers are promising a "longer, beefier" adventure this time around, with more exploration and puzzles, plus some interface enhancements made since the debut, including "an option for shorter narrations, widescreen support, and the ability to toggle between walking and running". These improvements have been added to the current version of the first episode as well.
To download Two Households, visit the the official website. Registration is required, but it's free and comes with no obligations.
