Yet if you call yourself a fan of the genre, these surroundings should seem very familiar to you. Yes, it's all here—an enigmatic "he" who issued you the invitation, photo-realistic graphics, the wobbly picture frame puzzle and, of course, a happy coin—all the trademark characteristics which so uniquely, so unmistakably belong to... are you still guessing who? Only the light jazz music is missing; get around that by opening one of the archetypes in the background to listen to while you play this.
