The directors of The Silver Lining have told IncGamers that Activision seemed uninterested in the King’s Quest fangame.Following theto the King’s Quest fangame by the publishing giant, we spoke to the directors of The Silver Lining to find out the hows and whys of the C&D.”Vivendi was much more helpful when speaking with us, in terms of telling us what we needed to do in order to proceed,” the team’s directors told us. “Activision never seemed to show any interest beyond getting the basic information from us.”“They just kept requesting more information, until they eventually decided that they weren’t interested in putting any resources towards the contract or the game.”The situation sparked off towards the end of last month, with Activision issuing a cease-and-desist to the fangame which had been in the works for the past eight years. The game was initially shut down by Vivendi in 2005 but fan outcry led to Vivendi issuing a non-commercial license for development on the game to continue. After the Vivendi/Activision merger, however, the rights to the King’s Quest franchise shifted over to Activision, which shut down the project once more.If you’re interested in helping The Silver Lining see the light of day or in fighting for fangames in general, then be sure to check out to see how you can help convince Activision to change its stance.
