David Sirlin's card-based fighting game Yomi available for pre-order


David Sirlin is best known around these parts for helping re-balance Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix and Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix. Now, he's releasing a fighting game that can actually be played in the street (or any other flat surface!). Yomi is a card game for two players that uses its cards to represent one-on-one fights. Sirlin's been developing the game for the last six years, balancing it with tournament play, and it's finally available to pre-order for $100, which includes instant access to a printable version. That may sound expensive, but at least there's no more collecting after the initial outlay.

In addition, a new printing of Sirlin's previous game, Puzzle Strike, is also up for pre-order. Please don't actually play these games in the street. You'd inevitably lose cards when scrambling to get out of the way of incoming cars. Alternatively, you'd die.
