In the first installment, Izzie talks with Julia Keren-Detar, who helped develop of Mushroom 11, a puzzle platform game like no other. The protagonist is an amorphous green gob that can’t run, jump, or push. Instead of controlling the character, players destroy it. And instead of defeating enemies, the blob absorbs them.
