Please allow me to introduce you to… CHARLIE BLACKMORE

Hit “Read the rest” to see screenshots of Lee Petty’s awesome new game STACKING!

“What? A new game already?” you scream/ask, “Didn’t Double Fine just release the amazing holiday RPG Costume Quest and announce the phenomenal, downloadable, add-on, stand-alone level called Grubbins on Ice?”
To which we reply, “What? We can’t understand you.” Because you’re talking funny what with your jaw being on the floor and all.

But you need to pick up that jaw and close that mouth so you can get ready to kiss your blues away. Because Stacking is here.

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. Which is handy because Russian Nesting Dolls can do this:

Ta-da! They stack inside each other! The rules are simple: You can stack inside of any doll that is one size larger than you… long as they are not facing you.

Once inside, you command that larger doll and can use its SPECIAL ABILITY.

And then use that ability to solve puzzles and get Charlie through his grand stacking adventure!

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.

"More genius than one building can sensibly contain. DoubleFine is the Cherry Hill of California. You know that, right? I'm just sorry that I had to sit through an ad for a "Call of Duty: Black Ops Jeep Wrangler" which is disturbing on so many different levels, to see the teaser video for this latest and easily as excellent game. If the game isn't coming out for months, how did you have enough of it to create that video? Or is it now months of post and beta?"
11/24/10 - 10:49 AM

"Thank you DF, for being such wonderful innovators that you are."
11/24/10 - 10:55 AM

"Also, love the Big Daddy Matryoshka"
11/25/10 - 04:41 PM

"Something original! Cool! Not sure about the name, though."

"In an event of computers being destroyed and backs ups failing, would you guys ever consider using consoles to create the games? I heard consoles are capable of creating games too perhaps it would save more money if you guys got rid of computers and switched over to consoles to make console games. Okay done joking around."
11/27/10 - 12:49 AM

"Wow! A new game so soon after the epic greatness that was Costume Quest? You guys are really "Russian" out the releases. Yeah....sorry about that."

"Awesome! Now please tell me it is on a console that I have."
12/09/10 - 01:32 AM

"An adventure game? I can't wait! :D"
12/09/10 - 07:58 AM

"Matryoshka dolls! Freak'n Matryoshkas! Who says inovation is dead? Doublefine rocks so hard, maybe too hard? Nah. No such thing. Can't wait!"
12/09/10 - 09:46 PM

"Looks great. Wish it was on the pc but I'll probably just get it on the PS3 (although my friends will be upset that they won't be able to play it now)."

"I decided to browse around this site to look for writing services but instead I found really helpful blog posts. This information will definitely make my search easier. I had only concentrated on using internet searches which honestly left me a bit lost."
