King’s Quest 7 was first released in 1994 by Sierra On-Online for Windows, DOS and the Macintosh. As with the previous King’s Quest games Roberta Williams was the designer along with Lorelei Shannon. King’s Quest 7 tried to incorporate Disney-style cartoon graphics into the game. The backgrounds were hand drawn and then scanned into a computer. Apparently the original game was much longer but was shortened to be able to fit onto a single CD.
When the game was released some reviewers criticised the cartoon graphics. Others thought they were stunning. Due to the immense popularity of King’s Quest 6 hopes were high that King’s Quest 7 could keep up to the same standard. Some gamers felt let down by this latest release and didn’t appreciate the different graphical style. Either way King’s Quest 7 is a solid adventure game that’s still sold and played to this day.
