The Manhole is a children's game created by Cyan (now Cyan Worlds). The player opens up a manhole, which reveals a giant beanstalk that can be traversed to visit strange worlds. The CD-ROM version of Manhole the first computer game distributed on CD-ROM. Note that the CD-ROM version (aka The Manhole: CD-ROM Masterpiece Edition) used a different engine than the "New and Enhanced" version (which used MADE). Also, it included QuickTime videos, which are not yet supported by ScummVM. ScummVM only supports the "New and Enhanced" version.
