KQ9 was supposed to be a 3-chapter series released over time. But it looks like they're only releasing the first chapter now. "KQ9" (or The Silver Lining, as it has been renamed for legal reasons) has been in development for years. Gone through a couple project leaders (I met the original, nice guy....he's now a a writer for Adventure Gamer. I think he's even been around here once or twice). From what I hear from some former members, though, I'm not too impressed with what they're doing with the story. Their intent is to make the story grittier and darker and "more mature" than the original King's Quest games which were fairly light-hearted and didn't take themselves too seriously. Their reasoning is that because old KQ gamers have "grown up" the games need to "grow up" with them. I heard some plot elements that may or may not be still involved (though I think they are) and I was appalled at what they intended to do.
Some may like it, some may love it, but I'm sure most classic KQ fans will hate it. The original project leader said the game in its current state is nothing now like what he intended years back when he started it.
But everyone has an opinion, maybe this is just mine and will continue to be just mine. Incidentally, Cesar Bitter here at TellTale Games is (was?) the current project leader for TSL.
