From Tim Schafer’s Double Fine Productions, explore a vintage world inhabited by living Russian stacking dolls as you jump into more than 100 unique dolls and use their special abilities to solve a wide variety of puzzles & challenges. Play as Charlie Blackmore, the world’s tiniest Russian stacking doll, and embark on an adventure to rescue Charlie’s family from the nefarious industrialist known only as the “Baron.” This imaginative 3rd person puzzle adventure game will take you on a journey from a bustling Royal Train Station to a high-flying Zeppelin as you collect unique dolls and matched stacking sets to display in Charlie’s secret hideout, where you chronicle your adventures.

Continue the Stacking adventure with The Lost Hobo King DLC pack, included free in the PC version!

In the Lost Hobo King, the first downloadable expansion for Double Fine’s Stacking, players once again assume the role of Charlie Blackmore, the world’s smallest Russian stacking doll. Charlie travels with his hobo friend Levi to the mysterious kingdom of Camelfoot, the mythical resting place of lost hobo king and his crown. Charlie must help Levi’s uncle, Rufus Ryken, reclaim his rightful throne by solving three tests of valor and reawakening the hobo blacksmiths of old. Only then can the crown be reforged, enabling Rufus to become king and unite the fractured hobo people under one sardine. The Lost Hobo King features a complete adventure with several new challenges, each with multiple solutions, an all new assortment of unique dolls with engaging abilities, and a new round of hi-jinks to discover and make trouble with. Only the worthy can reclaim the crown of Camelfoot!

Excellent game with Very interesting gameplay.

gmgtochuje

Great game! I have not played such great productions for a long time. An extraordinary storyline with funny motifs at which I laughed a lot. In addition, it should be mentioned that the game uses a wonderful soundtrack in which we will find masterpieces of famous composers such as Fryderyk Chopin, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart or Antonio Vivaldi. I would recommend!

I thought it was fun

promoss1

This is such a fun game and a fun concept. Technically a stealth game where you have to sneak into other stacking dolls to take on their abilities. There is so much life and character in this game, I wish there was more. I have totally enjoyed playing this game and I recommend it to any one else who just needs a breath of fresh air.

A different puzzle game

JohnnyPear

If you enjoy puzzle games you are going to like this one. It revolves around a fresh concept (you play the Russian doll Charlie and have the ability to stack into bigger doll characters, thus gaining new powers or access to new areas). The art is wonderful and the level progression satisfying; overall you can clearly tell Stacking is a labour of love from Tim Schafer's colleagues at Double Fine.

Cute world, fun music and story, but lacking in gameplay

superhomosapien

Stacking does something truly unique: present a beautiful, cohesive world with music, story, art style, and mechanics all contributing to the atmosphere. Sadly, the puzzles in this game are flat out boring. They usually consist of trying to stack with different characters until you find the right one, then pressing the "use" button in front of an obstacle. I think this game might be great to play with/give to a younger kid (like, 7-12?). That age range could have a lot of fun with this.

Different O.O

samtahbou

I think some of the reviews here give the game a really hard time. I get why, but I disagree with the overall assessment. Yes the game can get a little repetitive, since the only mechanic you have for solving puzzles in this world is using another character's ability, so you basically need to keep jumping into other matreyshkas to find the one with the right ability to solve your current puzzle. But the repetitiveness aside; because lets face it, many many console games are quite repetitive and we do not mind it. The reason people are actually upset about this, is that the game is very unique, it looks great, it feels one of a kind, so with that in mind people expect "THE WORLD" from it, and no, that's not what you get. You get an amusing little story driven adventure, it's easy to go through and therefor focuses on the story - an old style movie story, that's somewhere between a puppet show, a play, and a 20's movie experience. It's sweet, charming, and endearing. Which makes the game appropriate for some younger audiences as well as adults. Pros: - Deliciously different, in looks and gameplay Cons: - A little repetitive and simple. I still say this game was well worth the purchase and I'd recommend it to anyone who would ask.
