Geograph Seal (X68000), 1994
Hiroyuki Saegusa

An important title in the history of Japanese 3D gaming that I imagine many more people have heard of than played. Before Super Mario 64, before even Jumping Flash!, there was Geograph Seal.

Mr. Saegusa also directed the game, which is not the sort of thing you see outside of very small teams. Endearing.

I love Exact’s UI art. I have a thing for custom fonts.

I don’t love how grainy the X68000 sounds. Oh well.


I feel like my motivation/inspiration for my next game project got a major boost after watching this.

Seal on whale

By Robyn Malcolm,

In this photo taken in Australia in September 2015 is seen a seal surfing on the back of a humpback whale. Scientists are not sure what happens after this unusual behavior. It’s possible the seal is just having a good time, says Michael Napier, an animal expert at the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine.

Dive into the World of the #harpseal by@daviddoubilet in #CoralFireIce with @Natgeo live at #Mesa Arts Center Nov 12. Here a #harpseal pup called a #whitecoat as it waits for its mother to return. Pups are born on the sea ice in February in Gulf of st lawrence, nursed for 12-15 days and then abandoned to learn how to be a Harp seal on their own, how to swim, how to feed, what to eat. Many die in this challenging early stage due to starvation, drowning and weak and crushed ice. [x]
