Seaman Creator Teases Possible Sequel

Seaman, one of the most bizarre games ever created could be getting another sequel, if recent tweets from the games creator are to believed.

Seaman was released for the Dreamcast back in 2000 and has since gained a cult following due to its quirky style and gameplay. Part cyber-pet, part video game, Seaman saw players taking care of an egg which evolved to swimming tadpole/man hybrid before turning into an equally strange frog-man creature. Players could use the Dreamcast’s microphone to talk to the creatures who were voiced by the legendary Leonard Nimoy. This would not be the first sequel, with the second instalment being released in 2007 but this version did not make it out of Japan.


Yoot Saito, the games creator, tweeted a picture of his team, all wearing T-shirts sporting the games tagline; “Don’t Panic!”, which can be seen above. The t-shirts contain a link to the games website, seaman.ai which if followed, has a picture of the Iconic frog-man and the words ‘Under Construction’. This is the second tweet about Seaman from Saito as he tweeted a picture a few days before showing a disc of the voicover tracks with Leonard Nimoy’s name on.
