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.

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

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.


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.

Space Quest 6 Scene?

A scene referencing SQVI.

A scene in the resource files that is rather reminiscent of Space Quest 6. However, this scene isn't used in SQ6, which came out in 1995 on a different engine. It might be something from a possible prototype.

Easter Egg

In the forest, a bear wearing pants may attack you, resulting in your death. If you hit the / key twice before the animation ends (or have a file called CARLOS.KQ7 in the root of your C drive, activating an unrelated debug mode), then the game will cut to black and repurpose sound-effects from elsewhere in the game (with some randomization for spice) to imply your character (both Rosella and Valanice are accounted for) is being eaten alive. How grizzly!

To do:
Document debug features the CARLOS.KQ7 file enables

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:


  • 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.
