Seaman, called Seaman: Kindan no Pet (シーマン 〜禁断のペット〜) in Japan, is a video game developed by Vivarium for the Sega Dreamcast in 1999. It debuted with the Dreamcast Microphone, which was bundled with the game. The game was not released in Europe (plans were once in place to release it there in 2001), though the Microphone accessory was (Planet Ring being the only game released in that region to be compatible with the peripheral). The game was later ported to the PlayStation 2 in 2001.
Japanese consumers also had an option to buy a "Special Package" bundle, which as well as including the game and microphone, also included a clear VMU (as the game requires one to function).
Seaman's face is that of Yoot Saito, the leading man behind Vivarium.
For a while after its release, Seaman was the best-selling Dreamcast game in Japan, beating Sonic Adventure and SoulCalibur. Famitsu sales charts compiled until early 2004 show it as the third highest-selling Dreamcast game of all-time in that region.
