King's Quest VII is a PC adventure game that has diverse opinions: some people call it a glitchy mess with terrible animation, while most others call this game legendary with great animations. Look at it this way: it's the precursor to Phantasmagoria.

All information on this page comes from Akril.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Port the rest of the stuff over, eventually.
  • Clean up this page.

Kangaroo rat's desert home

Instructions in the desert

The instructions for emptying the salt water pool.

Unused animations

And of course she doesn't care

The boogeyman attacking Rosella.

Watch it! This is a kids game!

The boogeyman attacking Rosella again.

Same as above, this time for tentacle lovers

Rosella attacked by a tentacle without her cloak—she must have the cloak to enter the swamp.

Not much to comment on.

Edgar and Valanice scene.

Is Valanice pulling Edgar or is it the other way around?

Another scene with Edgar and Valanice.

Well, the only good troll just died.

The dragon's tail squishing Rosella. This was used in some versions of the game, but not in all of them.

From the unused "MS Paint land"

Valanice opening the outline of a door.

"Uh, dad, your toga is a little bit undone.

A scene with Oberon and Edgar.

POW!

Rosella encountering the jackalope, who is usually only met by Valanice.

Old Logos and Icons

Ba ba ba dun! Ding, ding!

An early version of the KQ7 Sierra logo.

Mommy, how do I use this interface?

Whoa, maybe VII was originally going to have a multiple-icon interface like King's Quest V and VI.

Old Versions of Images

Caves with Crystals

The crystal caves before colour conversion.

Desert

The desert with a clone brush.

Desert

The desert clone brush forming the cliff face.

Desert with Pyramid

The old desert with the pyramid at the right.

Desert at Stone Head

The stone head with different footprints and bush.

Space Quest VI scene?

A scene referencing SQVI.

A scene in the resource files that is rather reminiscent of Space Quest VI. However, this scene isn't used in SQVI, which came out in 1995 on a different engine. It might be something from a possible prototype.

Unused Audio Clips

Kangaroo Rat

Some items that the kangaroo rat would trade if only you could actually bring them to him in the game:

  • Bone
  • Baked Beetles
  • The Moon
  • Count's Medal
  • Skull

The moon dialogue is particularly inexplicable, as the whole point of the item is that you can't leave Falderal until you launch it back into the sky.

Rosella and Attis

Characters who don't normally meet each other in-game:

Others

  • Graham worrying about Valanice and Rosella being a bit late.
  • Rosella pronouncing "Faux Shop" oddly.
  • Rosella encountering the broken cart.
  • Rosella talking about fixing the cart up.
  • Different rat voice, talking about how he can't see.
  • Slightly different part of the introduction speech.
  • "Is there anything I can do?"
  • Rejecting the idea of picking up another stick.
  • That desert has a long name!
  • Death message for the tail of the dragon squishing Rosella.
