Stacking Comes Out This Week, You Will Die Alone If You Don't Buy It

I am absolutely stone-faced serious about that; we’ve already gone over this, but if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t look forward to Double Fine’s latest foray into downloadable games, you are likely a person of terrible, terrible taste that no one in their right mind would and should love. Everything I’ve heard about Stacking so far sounds absolutely divine; in the game, you play as a Russian matryoshka stacking doll that goes around solving problems for everyone.

You have the somewhat disturbingly sexual ability to jump inside someone and gain their abilities; using said abilities, you’ll have to find a way to complete the objectives in every level and/or world. The nonlinearity in solving these problems is what’s supremely appealing to me, and sure to give me a consistent tingle in my babymaker/love-machine if it actually pans out.

It sounds a bit like Ghost Trick in its abilities and gimmicks, and if the game is as good as that, then I really can’t ask for more. Stacking will be available today on the PSN and tomorrow on XBox Live for $14.99, or 1200 Itchy and Scratchy Fun-Bux, respectively.

…remember, FOREVER ALONE.
