The most obvious differences between the two in most of their life stages are the shape of their eyebrows. Eyebrows of the male are thicker and appear to be straight lines above each eye, while the eyebrows of the female appear a bit thinner twith an obvious upward arch. There are, of course, occasional exceptions to this, where the actual female will be revealed only when mating. Both, however, possess the same voice regardess of sex, as well as a rostrum on top of their heads.
The rostrum:. Both male and female Seaman possess a rostrum just above their foreheads. It functions as a parasitic feeding tube, a waste disposal, as well as it's primary sexual organ, and furthermore, a birth canal.
When being used as a parasitic tube, it stealthily plugs the rostrum into the gut of the host from beneath, leeching the blood from the host until it dies. The Seaman species-particularly Gillmen and Tadmen-will kill off any of it's remaining brothers or sisters in this way until only one male and one female exist within the same tank by means of natural selection. When being used as a waste disposal, Seaman will proudly announce it's need to defaecate, rotating the rostrum before slinging the waste away, onto the front of the tank.
Waste takes the shape most similar to an equilateral triangle with rounded edges, and is dark brown with black specs. When being used as a sexual organ, the male and female Seaman will connect both rostrum ends together. The rostrum of the male Seaman appears to transfer round bursts of what is assumed to be sperm into the female's rostrum. However, it's worth noting that after using the rostrum in this way-particularly in the Podfish stage-the male Seaman partaking in intercourse dies. When being used as a birth canal, the female uses the rostrum to give birth, passing it's eggs through it, safely lowering the rostrum to allow the eggs to safely roll onto the surface.
However, it's worth noting that after using the rostrum in this way-particularly in the Podfish stage-the female Seaman giving birth dies. Seaman Behavior.

Seaman's face changes depending on it's attempt to convey expression just as humans do, raising eyebrows when surprised, furrowing brows when angry, frowning when sad, etc. If the player has taken good care of it resulting in a generally satisfied disposition, Seaman will continue to smile as it swims regardless of whether the player is speaking to it or not.
This involves keeping the tank managed appropriately with heat and oxygen levels, feeding them at appropriate times and speaking to them appropriately when it demands attention.
Picking Seaman up frequently, flicking Seaman, constantly repeating the same phrases, in addition to constant misunderstandings between the player signified by three question marks on the player's VMU, Seaman will develop a generally negative attitude towards the player, constantly retorting with sarcasm or general disdain for it's caregiver.
Seaman's responses toward the player vary between less sarcasm and more sarcasm depending on this as well. Seaman will also show more earnest feelings toward the player when good upkeep is enforced. When the player ends one conversation with one Seaman in the same tank, the other Seaman will happily pick up where the previous speaker left off.
Each subspecies color is the same regardless of gender, each individual only altering in color and experiencing a slight pattern change when given a name. While multiple Seaman may be given names, only one creature may vary in color at a time per tank, depending on which creature you named last.

It is not understood why-being newborn offspring hatched after it's mother's death-the Tadmen continue conversation right where the mother Podfish left off before it's death, nor how it has retained any information about the player at all based on the information the player disclosed exclusively to it's parents.
Seaman recalls things from it's past life over the past thousand decades only by evolving the more it converses with the player, and will share memories with the player as it recalls them in pieces. As Seaman evolves and grows, it's mental needs reflect that of it's physical development, from the primal picking from it's siblings as a Gillman without an understanding of why, to compassionate bargaining with the player for escape to pursue it's long lost love, dreaming of becoming something more as a Frogman.
Baby Gillmen are not required to be fed typically until they have been narrowed down to one male and one female.
The Last Seaman
It is advised to wait until Leonard Nimoy mentions that the player should do so when narrating the highlights of the day at the opening screen, or until the Gillmen voice the need to eat while visiting the tank. As the species evolves, their requirements for nourishment varies from small, round pellets to moth larvae and moths grown by the player in a separate tank. The temperature upkeep for the habitat also varies. Once Seaman recalls the memory of Dr. Gasse's possession of a second tank used as a Seaman food source, the player will unlock the tank for additional responsibility.
If the habitat containing larvae and moth is not kept up and the player runs out of larvae or moths, the player is forced to watch Seaman starve from a lack of provided resources until they begin the game again. If the player does not communicate with Seaman in the form of prompting Seaman to speak or answering questions, Seaman will discontinue growth, and it's evolution will remain stagnant.
Seaman will remain in that form until the player either answers Seaman's questions, or until it starves. It is important to note that discontinuing to speak to Seaman is considered a form of neglect, as verbal communication is intergal in aiding Seaman's overall health. In order to assist Seaman in it's ongoing evolution, the player must carefully follow the instructions provided by both Leonard Nimoy and Seaman when prompted, ergo, when Leonard Nimoy insists that you give Seaman a name, or when a Frogman asks you to encourage it to jump by saying, "Jump!
The history of Seaman according to page 1 of the Seaman game manual:. Until recently, it was assumed that the Seaman creature did not actually exist similar to the many other mythical creatures of ancient Egypt. However, in , the discovery of a live Seaman in the Egyptian city of Old Alexandria disproved this assumption, and Seaman came to be known the world over. While the originally discovered Seaman specimen died shortly after being captured, it's remains were quickly rushed to the foremost biological research institute in France where a number of eggs were discovered inside its body.
We at Vivarium were then able to assist in this endeavor by covering the research and development costs in return for the sole distrubution rights that have enabled us to offer this product to you. It is well known that as part of its genetic labeling, Seaman passes knowledge on to subsequent human generations orally. Furthermore, Seaman is said to have had a strong influence on the progression of ancient civilization, but the details of exactly how this was done are not yet fully understood.

This concept is a prerequisite for being a guardian to Seaman. Seaman is a game in which you will experience the growth of a living being. You will be witness to the drama of life over an extended period of time. Therefore, do not expect an experience similar to any other games, in which clearly defined events happen each time you play. As well, there are no scores to be earned, stages or final game to be cleared, etc.

This is not the type of game in which one can spend several hours in one sitting and expect to experience vast amounts of action or change. As with life itself, change only occurs over time and even then, slowly. Do you want to celebrate the life of someone you care about and support our vital work?
