Very short intro (Japanese version). Don't worry, you can switch the text to English in the game itself
The game begins with the titular manhole
A giant tree grows out of it
You end up in a surreal, strangely appealing world. Where does this door lead to?..
You travel into a book. Clear inspiration for Myst, by the same creators
Checking all those books...
The rabbit offers you tea...
...and you accept. This is tea, indeed. You click on it, you drink it
Outside of rabbit's house, you see another one of those giant trees...
...and a tiny fire hydrant. Some of the screens in this game are really minimalistic
You know what to do, right? Just like in Alice in Wonderland :)
Right. The hydrant turns into a giant house
Click on the picture of the hat, and it will turn into... a picture of another hat
You are curious to explore everything. Of course you'll touch it...
...and be taken to a rather friendly dragon
You can use the remote to flip channels. Very nice touch of interactivity
Now it's time to explore the mysterious tower...
Plenty of atmosphere here...
Chatting with a flamingo, admiring the surreal background of giant chess pieces
This must be Ganesha, the well-known Hindu deity
The gondola is so tiny, that the rabbit finds it in his tea cup!..
Another one of those surreal passages. The corridor ends in snowy mountains
Hmm, now this is a strange place
Wall Russ? What's next - "Lie On"? "Jag You Are"? "Al E. Gator"? I can make those up too, you know :)
