Forums - PC Discussion - Doublefine’s Stacking Is Coming To PC

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’.

Press release

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – December 16 — Double Fine Productions is happy to announce that Stacking, the Russian Doll Adventure recently named Downloadable Game of the Year by G4TV’s X-Play, is coming to the PC.

“I had nothing to do with this,” interjected Steve Dengler of Dracogen Strategic Investments, even though he totally funded the whole thing.

“Please, it is Christmas time and I prefer my good deeds to be anonymous, like Santa,” he added.

“Uh, everybody knows about Santa,” said Stacking creator Lee Petty, “He’s on every street corner in town.”

“So’s your mother,” said Mr. Dengler.

“Ho ho ho, that’s not Christmas talk,” said Santa Claus, who had slid into the room through the chimney without anyone noticing. “Christmas is about the spirit of giving, like how Double Fine is giving away the excellent DLC adventure The Lost Hobo King along with Stacking.”

Lee and Steven scowled at each other for a bit longer, but then they had to laugh and agree that Santa was right, and everybody gathered around to hug and sing Christmas carols. They sang about what an awesome game Stacking was, how great the Lost Hobo King DLC was, and how lucky everyone was that all this joy would be available on Steam, in the Spring of 2012 at the bargain price of $14.99. It was a strange song that didn’t rhyme much, but it was heartfelt.

And Lee’s mother, who is a saint, never found out about any of this.
