Santa Seaman's implications cannot be fully ascertained

Yup, that's a Santa Seaman all right, and we're just as desperately curious to find out why it exists as you are. The weird thing was tweeted by Seaman creator Yoot Saito, who also said that it was time to begin thinking about the end of the year, according to Andriasang's translation. We have so...

Nikkei: Seaman finds new life on the 3DS

Back in the summer of 2010, a tantalizing prospect came up: Seaman on the 3DS. It was teased by Yoot Saito, the creator of the Dreamcast original, and since then we've been all about it.

Apple rejects Yoot Saito's iPhone game, dev staff considered Seaman DS

We're more than willing to give Apple's do-everything-device the benefit of the doubt if they want to try to make it a legitimate gaming platform, but when we hear a story like this, we can't help but develop a few hangups. Yoot Saito, developer of the unsettling/brilliant Seaman, recently wrote a...

Yoot Saito working on Seaman-related game for iPhone

Oh wow, we're embarrassingly excited by this news: Yoot Saito is working on what appears to be a reworked version of Seaman 2 for the iPhone called Gabo.

Ground broken on The Tower DS

Famitsu has revealed the first screens of the newest game in Yoot Saito's Tower series, called, sensibly enough, The Tower DS. It looks very much like the other games in the series, which is, of course, a good thing. Towers are still seen side-on and feature elevators heavily; you still have to...

Yoot Saito building a Tower on DS

Before he was making games about historical pinball battles and sarcastic fish monsters, Vivarium's Yoot Saito created a skyscraper-building game called SimTower. He put the same kind of quirky, bizarre charm into what seems like a run-of-the-mill Sim game as he did Seaman, leading to a game in...
