Why is the download so big?
If I do remember correctly, Earthworm Jim is a SNES game which is usually no larger than 4mb so why is this game 1.5gb on Steam? is it loaded with data mining or snooping malware?

Steam needs to start pulling their ish together, I've contacted steam support on numerous occasions and am still yet to hear back from them. They took down my artwork which is 100% original artwork I made myself. I'm really disappointed in Steam lately, they don't value their customers and they are useless when it comes to troubleshooting/support.

TLDR: It's amazing how fast they can "moderate" or wrongly take down a user's artwork BUT when it comes to helping us it takes weeks to months. sometimes they just ignore you completely...

I'm also wondering this. There's no reason why this needs to be a gig and a half. The SNES ROM is only a few megs, and even if you were to go with the Sega CD version it's only a few hundred meg, with most of that being due to the soundtrack.

The download for EWJ, EWJ2, & EWJ3D are all the same file size. I believe if you own all three, when you download one, you are essentially downloading the data for all 3 games. But whether thegame is locked or not depends on whether or not you have bought it. Im assuming all 3 games somehow share data, and Steam did this to conserve space. Or maybe a publishig something or other since these companies no longer exist.

The game has the music/sounds from EWJ CD, not from the NES, plus it has better graphics etc. plus other things that cause the D/L to be bigger, WOW attention trolling kids will whine about anything really...

Simple reason: this looks like the MS-DOS version. The game itself is pretty small, but the music in the game is actually uncompressed CD audio.
