Ian MacLarty’s ‘Jumpgrid’ Will Get Your Heart Racing on May 9th

Jumpgrid By: Ian MacLarty I absolutely adored Ian MacLarty's Dissembler, a chill but tricky puzzler with all the right quality-of-life features, such as an unlimited undo button and the ability to unlock all levels from the start. It was one of my favorite games of 2018 and for a good while the six daily puzzles were part of my morning ritual. But alas, it wasn't Ian's usual kind of game. He's better…
