Only one game brings together silent films, the industrial revolution and Russian Stacking Dolls; that's right! The incredibly beautiful and new arcade title Stacking is now available on Xbox Live Arcade and through the Playstation Network... seriously what are you waiting for? Stop reading this and go buy it now!
Stacking is the brilliant idea from project lead Lee Petty, and much like Double Fine’s latest downloadable title Costume Quest, Stacking has all the endearing charm of a small puppy, that and with its fantastically ingenious setting, and original concept it's going to be super!
Stacking is the second downloadable game to be produced by THQ and developed by the award-winning Double Fine Productions. In Stacking, a family of Russian stacking dolls have been separated by tough economic times, and it’s up to the youngest doll Charlie Blackmore to bring his family back together. As Charlie, players will be required to capture and stack dolls together and use each doll's unique ability to solve puzzles; with each puzzle solved you will acquire new dolls, and the story of Charlie Blackmore will unfold. With so many different dolls in the game each challenge will have multiple solutions which gamers will be encouraged to discover as they race to bring Charlie’s family back together.
“Stacking looks and plays unlike any other downloadable game, and Double Fine’s unique approach to the puzzle-game genre has been executed brilliantly,” said Martin Good, THQ’s Executive Vice President of Kids, Family and Casual Games. “Players of all skill levels will be able to enjoy finding creative solutions to the huge array of challenges in a game filled with the vivid imagination of Tim Schafer, Lee Petty and Double Fine.”
Stacking is available now from the Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network for 1200 points and $14.99 respectively. Buy it now, if you don't well then you obviously don't appreciate imagination! If you aren't sold on the game, there is also a trial version available now also.
