The road that lead to the release of The Silver Lining was a rocky one, and until recently it looked like it would never be released at all. It has received two separate cease and desist notices; The first cease and desist was from Vivendi and the, after they merged, from Activision.
The Silver Lining is episodic, with What is Decreed Must Be being the only one released so far and with five episodes planned in total:
- What is Decreed Must Be
- Two Households
- My Only Love Sprung From My Only Hate
- Tis In My Memory Locked. And You Yourself Shall Hold The Key Of It
- A Thousand Times Goodnight.
In general it has a atmosphere of classical adventure overhanging everything, but with more modern production values. And I think it will be a great addition to the series, and hopefully inspire more fan made additions to old, but not forgotten, IP.
