Seaman: Day Twenty-Nine

Posted by JohnTheGamer (341 posts) -

To begin, I adjust the temperature for the two remaining tadmen; however after doing so one of them hops onto land. It looks like he is now a frogman. He calls out to me and after I say hi, he informs me that today in 1903, the Wright brothers made their first flight; I’m learning something new from these creatures every day.   Soon after this the other tadman crawls onto land as well.

After a bit, one of the frogmen talks about how humans are always busy, wondering if it could just be those of us in America, as it is a business oriented country. He wants to know what I do with friends when I have free time; I tell him we usually play games. He says it’s cool that I’m taking something that is usually a one person affair and doing it with friends. He thinks this is where the industry is heading; nine years later, that’s already been answered with online gaming taking off.

Right after this, he tells me that the frogmen will require the terrarium to be watered down, to keep its moisture level high; I now have access to a sprayer. His next theme is about humans as social beings. He notices that we are quite talkative and if asked the right question, we could go on for hours. He asks about what my friends and I talk about and how I spend time with my family.

The frogmen talk more about our social nature and eventually finish off with a discussion on how my persona changes depending on whom I’m talking to. He says he wants some time to think about what we’ve talked about today and tells me “byeeeeee.’ Lastly, I switch over to the insect terrarium and water it down.

DOOD, FROGMEN?!  SWEET!!! 
 
Also, I'm just throwing this out there...but is there any chance you have video recording capabilities?  I'm curious just how fluid a conversation is between player and virtual frogman.  It seems like the developers really took the time to put some interesting philosophical "discussions" in the game. 
 
Keep these going!  It's one of the best thing going right now.

Frogmen look pretty freaky. 
 
Nice history lessons and musings; they're not all that amazing coming from the mouth of a person, but it's cool that a 2000 virtual pet knows them.

@jakob187: Yeah I'll make a video. 
@ZmillA:
 You've missed some of the best!
