The room is largely based on the oceans from Creatures 1 and 2, hence the name "Past" Seas. As such, it features animal life from both of the aforementioned games, as well as several critters and plants unique to the room based on animals from Earth's distant past.
Risen Angel originally planned to have the metaroom released by the CCSF 2010, but then missed the deadline. The room was finally completed in time for the CCSF 2011, where it was released.
