Stacking is a game about a young chimney sweep named Charlie Blackmore, and his quest to reunite his family after they’ve been forced into indentured servitude by an evil industrialist. Oh, and he happens to be a Russian Matryoshka, or Nesting Doll.
They stack inside each other! The rules are simple: You can stack inside of any doll that is one size larger than you as long as they are not facing you.
Created by Brütal Legend’s art director, Lee Petty, plus his awesome team, Stacking has all the great story, characters, and setting of old-school adventure games, but also has a completely new way to interact with all those things I just said. I’m just glad we got out there first, because by this time next year, all games are going to star Russian nesting dolls. Mark my words.
