Initially known as "Whitebelt",  this project was later codenamed "Dural", after the metallic female fighter from Sega's Virtua Fighter series. He further stated that "Sega's relationship with NEC, a Japanese company, probably made a difference [in Sega's decision to adopt the Japanese team's design] too.
Japan wanted the Japanese version, and Japan won. EA had invested in 3dfx but was unfamiliar with the selected architecture, which was reportedly less powerful. Like previous Sega consoles, the Dreamcast was designed around intelligent subsystems working in parallel with one another,  but the selections of hardware were more in line with what was common in personal computers than video game consoles, reducing the system's cost. The Dreamcast attracted significant interest and drew many pre-orders.
However, of the four games available at launch, only one—a port of Virtua Fighter 3the most successful arcade game Sega ever released in Japan—sold well. The price reduction and release of Namco 's Soulcalibur helped Sega to gain 17 percent on its shares. We'll have a ratio of 1. That's half a million units of software.

We think we'll be. Dreamcast sales exceededThough the Dreamcast launch had been successful, Sony still held 60 percent of the overall video game market share in North America with the PlayStation at the end of Dreamcast sales—which exceeded 1. In Japan, every Dreamcast sold included a free year of Internet access, which Okawa personally paid for.
Dreamcast was on fire - we really thought that we could do it. But then we had a target from Japan that said we had to make x hundreds of millions of dollars by the holiday season and shift x millions of units of hardware, otherwise we just couldn't sustain the business. Somehow I got to make that call, not the Japanese. I had to fire a lot of people; it was not a pleasant day.
Once the baby Gillmen are able to form full sentences, still at the premature level of that stage, they will narrow down their numbers by means of natural selection to one male and one female by parasitic use of their rostrum.
The male and female will grow into mature Gillmen, their voices deepened and their bodies less transparent than their younger forms, appearing more like actual carp. After investing time and conversation with them, they will soon begin to grow hind legs, then referred to as Podfish. The Podfish will slowly grow arms, begin excersicing their bodies by swimming upright and backward. Soon, the two will engage in intercourse by using the rostrum. After disconnecting the rostrum, the fathering male dies after using all it's remaining energy for the sake of evolution and the furthering of it's kind.
The female Podfish is then left alone, and will soon assist the caregiver in altering it's environment by uncovering a hole in the tank. The majority of water will drain from the tank with the exception of a miniature pond of remaining water in a lowered section of the gravel.
The Podfish will then continue to evolve with more time and care in this small section of water, soon developing arms in addition to it's previously grown hind legs. The now fully developed Podfish-with fully developed arms and legs-in the final moments of this stage, will then climb to the higher surface of gravel and out of the water entirely. It will then go into labor, circling around the tank, suffering very painful contractions, before finally passing multiple eggs through the rostrum.
Immediately after giving birth, the mother Podfish dies, leaving her eggs behind, deposited right in front of the water she once swam in. The eggs soon hatch as baby Tadmen, immediately thrusting into the small pond of water to swim. They are, however, already capable of full speech with mature voices, and it's worth noting that any of the Tadmen will pick up any conversation the mother Podfish left off at before it died. The Tadmen, like the baby Gillmen counterpart, will pick each other off by natural selection, continuing the evolution to cycle between one male and one female.
The Tadmen will, similar to previous stages, evolve given the proper time and care investments, and, faster than it's previous stages, develop arms and legs. The tail will shorten and stretch, the body becoming large and husky, and soon, the male and female Tadmen will crawl onto water, officially being referred to as Frogmen.
The Frogman is the last stage of the evolutionary line of Seaman. Once it is fully developed, the Frogmen will ask to be released into the wild to continue it's evolution away from the player, by means unbeknownst to the player. However, they do assure the player that they will never stray too far, and will still answer by their names no matter where they stray on the island.
It's worth noting that Frogmen do have the ability to mate and give birth to the same embryo the player was provided by Vivarium at the beginning of the game that hatched the life of the Mushroomers, only to start the entire life cycle all over again.
It's not reported that his has ever been seen, or known whether the Frogmen die after this cycle. Seaman Anatomy Differences in sex: Seaman are both male and female. 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.
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.
