Here's the original crew:

Ahhh, that makes a lot more sense. Thank you very much, they do look more similar here. Though there still is quite a difference in art style... Yet I somehow find myself liking the animation ones more, probably because I tend to appreciate anime character designs more easily and I can't help but like its confident, strong lines (we'll put the ridiculous ahoge to one side for now).

Perhaps the decision to adapt the designs in that way is a mark that the story too will not be very faithful to the game? I dunno. (I don't really care, either.. since I haven't played it.)
Thanks for the fish
