It started innocently enough. Fork Parker, Devolver Digital’s chief financial officer, tweeted SEGA asking to let his company develop a Seaman sequel. Sounds awesome, right? But c’mon, how many times have we seen something like this? A random developer wants SEGA to give them the rights to make a new entry in a classic franchise, everyone gets excited and then nothing happens. Rinse and repeat.

Well, this time might be different. You see, Parker also tweeted the request to Yoot Saito, the Japanese badass who originally designed Seaman, and he tweeted back.
@ForkParker Hi. For smartphone?

Now that we think about it, a mobile Seaman game sounds pretty awesome. What do you think?
