It's understandable to be confused about why an old school adventure game is suddenly taking up more than 2GB of space on your hard drive, especially when the Xbox Live Arcade version is only a quarter of that (just over 500MB).

Or, rather, a lack there of on the PC version; it's uncompressed audio and art there. The Xbox Live Arcade version, on the other hand, required compression. I've played a little bit of the game on Xbox 360, however, and didn't notice any issues with it.
