Summary

Set in a diorama world, Stacking is a third person adventure puzzle game where you play as Charlie Blackmore, the world tiniest Russian stacking doll. He is all too accustomed to being overlooked and dismissed--too small to be of any consequence. But Charlie's size turns out to be his greatest strength after all.

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.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.

It harkens back to the game's origins: Stacking rarely treks toward the outskirts of the playroom, and not as far into alternative humour territory as some Schafer fans would hope. But instead it offers a fully-formed, self-contained world of colour and quaintness, charm, and more importantly an individuality of its own. Its voice might be weaker than Schafer's work but Stacking is one of few games with its own visual identity.

Stacking's central gimmick works as both gameplay and metaphor. Charlie may be small, but he's the only one that can save the day, that's an easy message. But there's something else going on here, a sweet vignette about a family whose bond is represented by their ability to be physically encased in one another. It's not a traditional way of telling the story, but why would you ever want it to be?

Stacking is chock full of charm, humor, and fun puzzles. Though some of the solutions are really easy, if you avoid the hint system it’ll take some time to decipher some of the harder ones. If all you want to do is run through the story without trying other solutions, performing Hi-Jinks or collecting dolls, Stacking may not be the best $15 investment.
