What was this "Game"?

When I was in college in the mid-90s, I had a "game" (broadly defined) for my Macintosh Quadra 650 (aw yiss!) that was labeled ITA Choco. Here's
what seems to be a site by the creators (partially in Japanese, partially in 404 errors). What was the point of it? And what does the site say?

The game was sort of like an early predecessor to QWOP, in that you controlled the limbs of (maybe) a woman, and there was a little garden gnome bopping about. By moving her arms, you could make the gnome climb on your shoulders or head. The woman may have been sitting at a table with a cup of coffee on it. The game was essentially black and white, with a painterly look to it, much like the home page image on the site I linked to.
I can't remember getting it to do anything in particular. I'd move her arms, and the gnome would bop about. And then I'd get bored and play Blobbo or Snood.
Does anyone else remember this game, or know what I was supposed to be doing? I do actually still have a copy of it on a backup disc, but I can't play it on my Mac Pro.
