It's available on import only so I recommend you wait to see if they'll be releasing it in the UK, maybe they will, but I doubt it somehow! Ok, should you go for the Japanese version then you're mad as You'll have to speak fluent Japanese to the fish, and you'll have to understand what they say too. Go for the USA version, but be warned, you're going to have to brush up on you're American accent because these fish are from over the pond!
The idea is to talk to some virtual fish with rather wierd looking fish bodies and human faces. They talk back to you and actually respond to what you say - this is the first console voice recognition game ever made, but you will have to practice to get anywhere! By talking to the fish you'll be able to understand why this was Japan's best selling DC game, shifting 550,000 units. It's a very clever game indeed.
If you're rude to the fish, then they'll be sad, rude back and won't grow! they are so lifelike in personality, but it's more like breeding a set of cats - not fish! They always want attention, and when they ask for food they don't bother eating it!
A very interesting and original game that requires the Dreamcast microphone. It may well be the case that the PC version is released in the UK and the DC not. Oh well, these japanese - I don't know!
Great graphics and sound, slightly wierd, very inventive and so 4stars is what this gets because they don't always understand u!
A bit of a dramcast fan I see, jester! I have been thinking of getting a new console for a while now, and I think you might just have persuaded me to go for a sega if the games are as good as you say! :-)
Sigh. If only Carl Jung were alive to play this game! The latest--and undoubtedly ... more
strangest--in a line of virtual-pet games, Seaman will have you mothering (or fathering) the most surreal creature yet to grace the Dreamcast: a fish, known as Seaman, with a human face. Drop some Seaman eggs into your virtual aquarium and watch them hatch into larvae, then baby Seamen (no giggling please), and eventually into adults. In order to raise happy, fulfilled Seamen, you'll need to do more than just feed them and regulate their water temperature and oxygen levels--like most pets, they need your regular attention. You interact with the little guys as a disembodied hand that can tap on the glass of their aquarium, tickle them (they love that), and drop things into their tank. Seaman also comes with a microphone; you can talk to your critters. Voice-recognition software built into the game will enable your tiny mermen to learn your voice and, in time, hold conversations with you. In fact, these Seamen are notoriously moody and may even make fun of you at times. If you neglect them, they will definitely let you know! Seaman is quite possibly the weirdest video game to ever be released. It's also one of the most incredibly original titles in a very long time. And if you don't believe me, just ask the frisky Seaman, a fish/reptile with a human face--it isn't shy. According to legend, this strange creature is the discovery of scientist Jean Paul Gasse. The weird-looking beast was documented to have an almost grotesque look about it, as it had the body of a reptile and the face of a man. Yet it was able to talk and reason with the doctor as well as your average human. And while the good doctor was laughed into obscurity after trying to explain his discovery, you have the opportunity to raise a Seaman from egg to its fishlike state and beyond. Not only must you keep Seaman well fed and warm, you'll find that conversation (via the included ...
