When Costume Quest arrived on PC, I hoped it meant Doublefine loved us again. Now, in a characteristically jolly announcement during the X-Play Best of 2011 awards, it has been revealed that the beautifully characterised and wonderfully inventive Stacking is on its way too. All that remains is to sulk until Trenched Iron Brigade stomps onto PC as well. Stacking, for those who do not know, is a game wherein the player controls “Charlie Blackmore, the world’s tiniest Russian stacking doll” and “jumps into more than 100 unique dolls”. It’s set within one of the finest worlds I’ve played around in for some time. The news happens in the video below. Skip to 1.02 to get straight to it.
If that’s being a pain in the backside for you, you can watch it here. Perhaps you’d like a trailer for Stacking as well? I happen to have one concealed within this doll which is concealed within another doll which is concealed within the toy chest that contains the secret shame that is my doll collection.
No date yet, but I’m tempted to say ‘rush and all is forgiven’.
I want Iron Brigade
