Phoenix Online Studios has released the Two Households, the second episode of its King's Quest-inspired adventure game The Silver Lining -- both Two Households and the first episode, What Is Decreed Must Be, are available to download and play for free from the game's official site.

Two Households continues the King Graham's quest to save his family from "mysterious evil forces". In the first episode, a curse placed the monarch's children into a deep coma that can only be cured by a complex spell. King Graham must travel the Green Isles to gather the needed ingredients while searching for clues about the villain behind the curse.

The new release adds more opportunities for exploration, a longer playtime than What Is Decreed Must Be, and new inventory/logic puzzles. Phoenix Online has also added an option for shorter narrations, the ability to toggle between walking and running, and widescreen support to both episodes.
