In the summer of 1997, I saw two mackerels that had somehow managed to get into the sardine tank at the aquarium. Watching these two fish unable to blend in with the shoal of sardines made me wonder if they were on a journey of self-discovery. What sort of adventure will they have? Imagining this led to the conception of six cast puzzles based on oceanographic subjects. Subject: SeaBream A sea bream and a mackerel enjoying themselves getting tangled up together. Take them apart, and then put them back together again. – Yamamoto 2008 –

Trying to see how pieces fit and re-assessing where they might go when they don’t fit is a good exercise in checking and re-evaluating choices. Each piece can only go in to one place so there is none of the compromising and trading-off that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to constantly re-evaluate their decisions, and teaches patience with the process as it is an integral part of the game.
