This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Aquaria
The merpeople evolved from humans.

I have only started the game, so I don't know if this theory is contradicted somewhere. However, flippers, unlike fins, are a feature found on aquatic descendants of land-dwelling species. From this we can infer that while "classic" mermaids are likely to have evolved underwater, Naija's species is more likely to have descended from land-dwelling humanoids, having mostly human features with flipper feet.
  • The ending reveals that all creatures in Aquaria were created by a human boy who fell into the ocean and somehow obtained godlike powers. Naija's mother was a first generation created entity. It's far more likely that the boy simply used humans as a template and slapped flippers and gills onto them to create marine life that he could relate to.
