I’m shamelessly polling for a speech of mine. I’ve heard many stories about HOW people ran into Yomi. Now I’m interested in what kept you here.
When I was younger I used to love forcing my sister to play rock paper scissors(RPS for simplicity) with me. I say force because I seemed to be able to beat her 9 times out of 10. The fun didn’t last for to long because not many people wanted to play RPS seriously, and the game was kinda lacking in depth. At the same time I was frustrated by how most games I knew that could be played with standard deck of playing cards were secretly horrible. They either reduced into boring strategies or relied too much on lucky draws.
Yomi scratches my RPS itch something fierce and it comes with enough depth for me to gush about it YEARS after I started playing. My reason for playing is simply because I always liked RPS and Yomi is the best game ever* to focus on that dynamic. That feeling when you make a good read is intoxicating and it’s made sweeter when each decision has real weight behind it.
*I hear great things about fighting games but I have yet to go though the 1 year required training camp to reach the RPS part of them /s.
