Silver Lining devs want to purchase King's Quest license from Activision

The collective biomass of indie developers who (up until recently) had been working hard on an unofficial sequel to the King's Quest series are organizing with an intent to purchase the intellectual property from Activision. Phoenix Online Studios -- developers of The Silver Lining -- had been hit with a cease-and-desist order late last month.

Speaking with Joystiq at PAX East 2010, co-project director and art director Richard Flores revealed that if an online movement to reverse Activision's decision to stop production on the title was unsuccessful, the development team would attempt to purchase the license from Activision.
