Stacking was a video game that shipped in 2011 on Xbox 360, PS3, Pc, Mac, and Linux. Stacking was developed by Double Fine Productions. I served as project lead, writer, designer and art director.
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.
