Seaman was pretty effed up. The bizarre Dreamcast title tasked players with raising a creepy fish-like creature with a human face through the various stages of its life cycle by communicating with it through a microphone. It's one of those semi-classics that everyone knows about, few people played, and almost no one understands. When it was released in 2000, it seemed a bit a head of its tiem, and had trouble finding an audience, especially in the U.S. Ten years later, the creator of teh game, Yoot Saito, is hinting at a possible 3DS re-release. Let's hope the world is ready for it.
On his Twitter page, Saito received a question from a fan about the possibility of seeing Seaman on the 3DS. Instead of shattering the fan's dreams by saying "sorry, no," Saito responded by saying that he couldn't give any specifics, but that he should keep on hoping for it.
It's far from an announcement or confirmation, but it's certainly eyebrow raising when the game's creator tells us to keep our hopes up for a 3DS Seaman. The 3DS, with its multiple cameras, touch-screen, 3D display and portability, seems like the perfect platform for the title, and who knows, maybe the last decade has prepared us for one of the most offbeat games of all time.
