Another question: Are you planning to review "The Silver Lining", KQ fan project by phoenix online?

And yes, I plan to review The Silver Lining. Chapter 1 was a bit disappointing, cos it was so short. But Chapter 2 is wonderful.
OK, so you do it, that's great. Otherwise I would have offered my help, but I don't find the game all that wonderful. The textures of the characters seem a bit low-res on close-ups, their movements aren't as flawless as they should be, some of the voices sound just strange, and above all, the narrator got on my nerves pretty soon so I was happy that there was a "turn narrator's voice off" function :-)
The dialogs are endless and sometimes of no great use, and when I heard Shamir talking about dreams becoming reality and the balance, it reminded me a lot of "The Longest Journey" and its prequel "Dreamfall" :-)
Yet, the backgrounds are beautiful, and so is the music. And there's certainly a bit more to discover than in Episode 1 which wasn't only too short but consisted of nothing but 30 minutes (which felt like hours!) of cutscenes inbetween which you had to change your outfit and collect three items.... I also liked that you can let Graham die quite a few times and put all (??) the death scenes into a video :-)

Well, she's certainly not as irritating as Virginia Capers in Gabriel Knight 1 (who would really be hard to top! :-)), but I didn't like her snappy, sometimes arrogant tone. In an adventure, I want to experiment and, if taking a wrong turn, not being sarcastically snapped at by the narrator. Plus, she did far too much self-propaganda for my taste

"A dark comedy point & click adventure game about alcoholic incapacitation and people obsessed with murdering their other half. It mixes the style and atmosphere of Hitchcock suspense films with a surreal game world inspired by the best cult trippy movies. It also takes place in the infamous cheap bar Avalon."
So who wants to review this game?
