** There is also a stage beyond Frogman that only exists in the japan-only PS2 remake of the game, the '''Lizardman''' that resembles a green lizard with a human face. This creature is created when the two Frogmen mate, producing a single egg that hatches into the juvenile Lizardman. It seems that the Lizardman has become a purely land-dwelling creature. Once the Lizardman reaches adulthood it goes off on its own, much like the Frogmen in the original game.
** The '''Birdman''' appears in Seaman 2 as a seagull with a human face, and human legs. In this form Seaman appears to be completely independent and no longer in need of care. It is unknown how this stage is reached.

You play as a pet owner who had decided to adopt a new, unknown species dubbed "Seaman" by scientist and discoverer, Jean Paul Gasse. The titular creature is a fish-like animal [[spoiler: gradually evolving into a frog-like creature]] with a human face who would eventually be able to talk with you. You start out with a handful of food pellets and a seaman egg to start with where you must hatch the egg and raise the resulting seaman [[spoiler: or rather, sea''men'']] to maturity. You are tasked with checking up on it to make sure it has enough air in its tank, the environment is warm and that they are fed, and eventually you'll be able to converse with the seaman and be asked various questions as you raise it. Although [[TrialAndErrorGameplay you are left to figure out how to raise the seaman on your own]], Nimoy will also give you general hints and tips as you check in on your seaman.

* BizarreAlienBiology / [[BizarreAlienReproduction Reproduction]]: Aside from the fact that Seaman is, iconically, a fish with a human face capable of human speech, the life cycle and ecosystem is, as the WebVideo/AngryVideoGameNerd describes it, more complex than [[Film/{{Alien}} xenomorphs]].

''Seaman'' is a virtual-pet-raising game released for the Sega Dreamcast in Japan in 1999 and localized in 2000. It was [[UpdatedRerelease re-released]] [[NoExportForYou for Japan]] as ''Christmas Seaman'' and again as a Playstation 2 port. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen There were also plans for a PC release that allowed Seaman to interact with and manipulate your desktop and e-mails,]] [[DummiedOut but it was eventually cancelled.]] A sequel was also released, [[NoExportForYou again, only in Japan]], for the Playstation 2. The game was one of the few in the Dreamcast library to take advantage of the microphone. It also features narration from Creator/LeonardNimoy in the English version.

* HeyItsThatVoice: Besides Leonard Nimoy, the seamen (from the adult-gillman stage onward) are voiced by Jeff Kramer, the man responsible for [[VideoGame/DeadlyPremonition Agent York]]. Not George Takei, as popularly believed.
