Game Profile

Rec-Rec are fishlike plankton that feed on sound waves.

They absorb sound waves transmitted through water and use them as a form of nutrition. The sound waves that the Rec-Rec eat are then stored inside their bodies until they have been digested. Once the digestion process is complete, they play back the sounds in perfect four-second intervals. While these sounds are playfully emitted, wave patterns can be seen pulsating on their bodies. Rec-Rec always swim side by side in schools of four. When they swim at different speeds, the frequency with which they emit sounds also changes.

Think I'll snap all these up when they come out over here. £20 for basically the full cartridge game (which iirc was £30 on initial release) in download form, bargain.
