Trivia

Open source release

In 2009 Trevor Chan and Enlight Software released the source code of the game, including all game data files with the exception of the soundtrack, under the GNU General Public License. A community development project was launched in late August 2009 at 7kfans.com, aimed at increasing compatibility with modern systems, improving network play, fixing bugs and eventually porting Seven Kingdoms to other platforms. Since then, the 7kfans.com community has released several updated versions of the game for Windows and Linux.

In December 2011, Bjorn Lynne, who wrote the original soundtrack, allowed its use with the open source version of the game, albeit not under the GNU GPL license.
