Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/FusionFall'' Legacy, being a reimaging of the original [=MMO=], expands upon it in many ways:
** The time travel accident that strands the player in the future was just another one of Dexter's experiments ruined by Dee Dee in the original. [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Ff9nOqn6sIs The Legacy intro]] portrays it as a full blown public event.
** Several nanos are being added to the game.

* The H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society's [[http://www.cthulhulives.org/store/storeDetailPages/dart-IWP-cd.html adaptation]] of "Imprisoned with the Pharaohs" expands on the thirty-page short story by adding Bess Houdini and recurring character Nathaniel Ward as major players in the narrative, in addition to including Houdini's stage show and introducing a subplot about Houdini trying to buy a sarcophagus and mummy from a museum.
** Similarly, the adaptation of "Literature/TheCallOfCthulhu" is framed as a police investigation, which [[spoiler:causes a significant change from the original story at the end]].
** ''Dagon: War of Worlds'' takes Lovecraft's original very short story and turns it into a full-blown, feature-length sequel to "Literature/TheShadowOverInnsmouth" in the style of Orson Welles's famous ''Literature/WarOfTheWorlds'' broadcast.

* Games based on superhero will often try to make the playing field more even, so a character possessing titanic strength in the comics will be just somewhat stronger than a regular guy (e.g. Superman and Batman) and some characters will be possessed of powers that just never existed in the comics, usually including attacks that clear the screen of all the bad guys.

Then several hours later, you had to find 12 talismans otherwise you couldn't get through some tombs that were never in the book...
