Comparison of PC and GBA Editions

The original Epoch used large sprites, which I originally thought were novel, especially for the amount of detail I could put into them. However, they were detrimental to gameplay at the low resolutions that were typical of the time period. You just couldn't see all that far ahead, above, below! The GBA version went to a smaller format, but with the help of a new sprite artist, they really were cleaner anyway.

While some details changed, new and expressive sprites on the GBA version still kept it interesting in its own style.

Various characterization changes and plot tweaks result in some differing but still familiar scenes.

"Ghost Ari" was written out completely in the GBA remake.
