King's Quest Fan Game Killed

The Silver Lining Website has news that this fan-made project based on the King's Quest series has been shut down by Activision after eight years of development, just as they were preparing to release the first episode in the project. This project had a brush with death in 2005 when they received a Cease & Desist letter from Vivendi Universal, but they were eventually able to work out a non-commercial license to proceed with the project. More recently, however, Activision took ownership of the King's Quest IP, and after some negotiations, determined they were not interested in licensing the non-commercial project, and ordered it shut down. The only silver lining in this situation is they seem interested in finding a way to keep their development team together, expressing hopes that the teamwork and rapport they've developed won’t go to waste. Thanks Ant via Slashdot.
