Trivia

Alien names

Several of the aliens' names are common names spelled backwards. A couple of these names are those of the developers. E.g. Ttocs is the reversed first name of Scott Nixon, one of the game's graphics artists.

Box art

The screenshots on the back of the box show very different weapon sprites than actually appeared in the game.

Cancelled sequel

A sequel called Corridor 8: Galactic Wars was planned using the Build engine; however it was never released due to Capstone and its parent company Intracorp going bankrupt in 1996. A very early prototype and early design document has since been released by one of Capstones former programmers.

CD audio

Corridor 7 came with a small but unique and potentially useful feature. You could change the volume on the Line-in in case you were playing CD Audio from an external drive.

Developer credits

At the start of the game, you can turn around and go through the starting door. There, you'll find a corridor containing the names of the games developers.

Visages

If the player stands still for about 10 seconds, a visage of the games final boss will appear on the screen. If the player waits through several of these, an alternate religious orientated visage will appear.
