Searching for a game my girlfriend played in her youth

Post by bogglez » Mon Oct 17, 2016 7:30 am

So I revealed my power level to my girlfriend and told her I develop for the Sega Dreamcast.
To my surprise she said she owned one in middle school, her parents bought a used one from her teacher.
She had 3 games: seaman, samba de amigo and another one involving planting seeds or something like that.. She doesn't remember well, but I thought it would be fun for her to see the game again. Her reaction to samba de amigo was hilarious (she even remembered the timings and poses).
Since she lived in Japan back then it might be a Japan-only game as well.
Any ideas?

Okay, that game looks great for an Alpha build.
I still kinda want to play it but the sound effects are awful and the graphics leave much to be desired.

Wow these look horrible! Hahaha
They don't seem to be the game she played. Maybe she'll remember more details in the future..
Flower planting made me think it harvest moon type of games, but I know none for Dreamcast

It might be a long shot, but maybe it was the Floigan Brothers? It had a "mission" that involved planting seeds.

That was not it, either. She doesn't seem to be able to recall more about that game right now, sorry :-/
Although she said she likes peaceful games like that

Yeah... don't think she cares about it anymore.
It would be fun if you could track the game down though.

Those games aren't horrible at all, both of them are actual creative and fun games. Hope you find your game.
