Hotline Miami And Talos Principle Publisher Devolver Digital Pursuing Seaman License

Devolver Digital, publisher of games like Hotline Miami, The Talos Principle, and others, is making an effort to acquire the Seaman license from Sega.

Whether or not Devolver Digital can actually get it remains to be seen, but the company's CFO, Fork Parker, has taken to twitter to try and court Sega into getting the license.

Along with attempting to reach out to Sega about the license, Parker also reached out to Yoot Saito, the original game's producer, who offered a surprising reply.

Seaman is a strange Dreamcast game that requires players to raise and interact with a fish who has a human face (the face of producer Yoot Saito) using a microphone. A sequel released in Japan for PlayStation 2,  but it never made its way to North America.

Our Take
I never played Seaman, but I have always wanted to. Maybe it would make a good Super Replay? Devolver Digital has its hands in enough innovative and interesting titles that this certainly has the potential to be a good fit. I would like to see a resurgence of such a weird game.
