Lambonius, SQ2 Deluxe is great, I feel its more like a 1:1.5 or 1:1.75 mix, 1:2 at the most... It feels alot like how SQ1VGA remixed SQ1EGA (but not as much as PQ1VGA did to PQ1EGA (enough that the final score and most puzzles are different in each game!)). It feels overall to fit within what SQ was in general! It makes alot of great nods to (and pokes fun of) itself, the original SQ2, and the series in general.
It goes slightly more than KQ1SCI did to KQ1VGA (which itself made quite a few changes), but is still in that ballpark IMO! But then again, I haven't seen the ending yet, its possible that it is even further beyond the original!
Maybe the best way for me to describe it is, its the kind of remake I came to expect from Sierra's own remakes... It's that close!
Not to mention one of your new 'cutscenes' is actually just directly pulled out or inspired by the old "Space Piston Magazine' 'comix' from SQ2. That was a great nod to the old game and its documentation! Or you took an old joke, but made it visual (the larry dream sequence)! So its not as if you 'completely invented' them!
Likewise some of the additions to the new cutscenes included in KQ1SCI were inspired by elements of the game's documentation!
