Seaman is life.
Seaman creator Yoot Saito has begun teasing a brand new venture, and preliminary hints give us hope that the quirky Dreamcast title could also be in for a observe up ultimately.
Posting on Twitter, Saito invited viewers to guess on the topic of a brand new venture his group has begun work on. The employees are proven sporting shirts with a picture of Seaman on it, as seen on the (below development) Seaman website.

This isn’t the primary time we’ve had hints at a Seaman successor. Saito has hinted for years he’d prefer to return to the venture, Nikkei believed there was a 3DS sequel within the works, and Nintendo once made a trademark that was both for Seaman or the results of the authorized group hitting the sherry a bit too exhausting.
More lately, Devolver CEO Ford Parker wants to fund a Seaman sequel. A reminder that Devolver is hosting its own E3 2017 conference appears pertinent.
Seaman, for many who got here in late, was a 1999 Dreamcast life sim narrated by Leonard Nimoy. Players took care of an irascible human-faced fish voiced by Jeff Kramer (Francis “York” Morgan in Deadly Premonition), hopefully nurturing it via six life levels from egg to mature amphibious kind, when it might breed.
Daily care was required to maintain Seaman alive, though this largely concerned speaking to it. Seaman’s dialog was, uh, attention-grabbing; typically, he didn’t suppose a lot of his human carers.
A Seaman sequel was launched for PS2 in 2007 however didn’t make it exterior Japan. Let’s hope the mixed forces of Saito and Devolver can carry a couple of happier outcome this time.
