Seaman was a simulation game that was released for the Sega Dreamcast at the turn of the century after being developed by Vivarium. It was also released for the Playstation 2, but was limited to only those two formats. As simulations or managerial style games go, Seaman is certainly a unique play to pick up.
Dr. Jean Paul Gasse has left you a handful of eggs from a mysterious creature he was studying, known as the Seaman (hence the title of the game…clever, yes?). You are going to follow in the good doctor’s footsteps and nurture these eggs, and once they hatch you will have the chore of raising the offspring. However, these babies will grow into more than a companion animal or a zoo attraction.
Seaman is fickle, picky, funny and a host of other adjectives. He will eventually talk and you will have to use all your wits to keep him in line. He is forever offering you advice, as well as humorous, smart-mouth comments on the things that you do in every day life. While it might be easier to just ignore the creature’s faults and failings, rubbing him the wrong way will cause you a lot of grief.
