Riguardo questo gioco

Grazie alla Double Fine Productions di Tim Schafer ora potrai esplorare un mondo dall'atmosfera vintage abitato da matrioske russe viventi. Salterai all'interno di oltre 100 bambole diverse e userai le loro abilità speciali per risolvere e affrontare una grande varietà di enigmi e sfide. Gioca nei panni di Charlie Blackmore, la matrioska russa più piccola al mondo, e fatti trascinare in quest'avventura per salvare la sua famiglia dal malvagio industriale conosciuto come “il Barone”. Questa avventura grafica in terza persona ti farà affrontare un lungo viaggio, dall'animata Stazione ferroviaria reale a un Dirigibile che sfreccia tra le nuvole, durante il quale dovrai raccogliere bambole uniche e set combinati da mettere nel Nascondiglio segreto di Charlie, vero diario delle tue avventure.

Continua l'avventura di Stacking con il pacchetto DLC Il Re perduto dei vagabondi, incluso gratuitamente nella versione PC!

In "Il Re perduto dei vagabondi", la prima espansione scaricabile di Stacking prodotta da Double Fine, i giocatori vestono di nuovo i panni di Charlie Blackmore, la matrioska più piccola del mondo. Charlie si reca con Levi, il suo amico vagabondo, nel misterioso Regno di Camelfoot, la mitica ultima dimora del Re perduto dei vagabondi e della sua corona. Charlie deve aiutare lo zio di Levi, Rufus Ryken, a reclamare i suoi diritti sul trono, risolvendo tre prove di valore e risvegliando i fabbri vagabondi di una volta. Solo allora la corona potrà essere di nuovo forgiata, permettendo così a Rufus di diventare Re e di unire il popolo dei vagabondi sotto un'unica sardina. "Il Re perduto dei vagabondi" presenta un'avventura completa con svariate nuove sfide, ognuna con molteplici soluzioni, una gamma tutta nuova di bambole uniche dotate di avvincenti abilità e un nuovo round di scherzetti da scoprire e con cui creare scompiglio. Solo i valorosi possono reclamare la corona"

Include una nuova raccolta di concept art esclusiva per la versione PC!

'Stacking', while being a game primarily aimed at children, manages to appeal to adults as well, not unlike other Double Fine titles.

Set in a fictional world of european industrialisation, tiny Charlie Blackmore, the youngest member of a family of proud chimney sweepers, finds his family abducted by the evil Baron and sets out to not only rescue them, but put an end to child labour as well.
In doing so, he has to make use of his stacking ability, jumping into bigger persons and animals, since all creatures in this world are Matryoshka dolls. With everyone being bigger than him, one could say that Charlie is the only one not being in some way hollow. Every doll has a special ability that may help Charlie on his way.
Overlooked or ridiculed by the bigger dolls, his only help is Levi, the hobo, who offers him a hideout and chronicles his adventures.

The concept is very well executed, making for lots of fun and at times quite tricky puzzles. There's multiple ways of solving the different situations, with a generous but optional hint system suited to all ages. On top of that there are lots of optional mini quests, involving all kinds of shenanigans, encouraging one to try out all possible combinations of stacking. There's much to explore and delight in in this small world.

Much effort is put into details. Difference in height when using different dolls changes perspective, field of vision, depth of focus and perception of sound. When jumping into a dog the colours fade, and so on.

The humour ranges from fart jokes to more mature themes such as the seductive black widow or that creepy guy who stares at women.

Along with the PC version comes the only DLC, in which Charlie returns the favour done to him by the hobos; finding the lost hobo king of Camelfoot is just as enjoyable as the main game.

This one comes highly recommended, whether you want to play it alone or together with your kids. Since some of it's themes are quite dark, it's probably not suited for toddlers as tiny as Charlie, unless you lend them a hand. Despite the grim tones, there's still a happy end.
If you like titles like Costume Quest, this one's right up your alley, but keep in mind that the alley is in some places quite a dark one, with monsters called men lurking in the shadows.

I don't know what inspires the creation of an adventure/puzzle game about Matryoshka (aka russian-nesting) dolls, but here it is!

Like most Double Fine games, this one just OOZES charm and humor; In terms of gameplay, it's all about exploration and puzzle-solving, but where most games of that sort involve hoarding items and using them in the appropriate way at the appropriate time, Stacking has you posessing recurring NPC types to utilize their special abilities or satisfy a role for each puzzle.

Also curious is that EACH puzzle has multiple solutions to it; Finding any one of them and hurrying through the game is a piece of cake, but for the real puzzle challenge you'll want to go back and find EVERY different possible solution. Additionally, there are small achievements to shoot for, just for the fun of it, usually involving using a particular character's ability to annoy a certain amount of particular characters or interact with so many specific things.

AUDIO: Classic                                                          AESTHETIC: Unique
MEMORABILITY: Unforgettable                        WORTH: Light Discount

PROS: Very unique gameplay and world. Easy to pick up and fun to explore. DLC pack is included for free in this version, meaning there is more game after the main story! Being encouraged to try solving a problem all possible ways adds a fair amount of challenge.

CONS: Main story is far too easy for the average player. Games default settings include very annoying visual effects that should be turned off immediately! Dolls may leave to walk their way back across the map where they started should you leave them unattended for too long, which may make some puzzles tedious to solve.

OVERALL: A world of Matryoshka dolls is a very cute concept and delivers adorable social commentary. Despite being easily finished within a few sittings, it is a game that you'll want to fully explore.

Love it. Definitely one of the most original games I've played in a very long while: it's charming, it's funny, it's cute, it manages to be both easy and challenging at the same time, and most importantly: it's fun to play through and actually makes you -want- to complete all the extras and side quests! As an extra bonus, it's one of the very few games that I not only found had pleasant music, but I also liked it enough that I didn't care to lower the volume to almost nothing to avoid hearing it.
On the downside, cutscenes are almost unskippable (you can actually double tap esc to skip them, but only at certain points, apparently), but I can live with that for the most.

Games like Stacking prove that creating games can indeed be an art form. It is a magical journey into a beautiful fairytale world subtly reminiscent of silent movies, a modern adventure game with fresh and alternative gameplay mechanics and at the same time a true work of art. Technically brilliant, great fun and a true artistic creation!

Who'da thunk that nesting dolls led such interesting lives? Not all of them, maybe, but one mischievous little doll on a mission to save his older siblings sure does! He sneaks around, jumping into larger dolls with amazing talents such as farting, belching, sipping tea and playing tag, and takes control over them. Soon the trains are running again, the cruise ship is running no more, enslaved children are set free, the evil Baron is outraged, and the fun has just begun.

Long story short: it's a blast!

Stacking is a charming little puzzle game. The idea is that you are the smallest of many russian nesting dolls in this world. You are able to stack into other dolls bigger than yourself, one size at a time. Every doll has a different action they can perform. These actions assist you in saving your siblings, causing chaos, and just messing around in general. It is well worth the price and time.

Gave someone a light and farted in his face to solve a puzzle. 9.9/10

In all seriousness though this is pretty much a perfect game: it has a unique gameplay idea that it explores to its fullest potential, a charming art style, a lot of subtle humor, it bursts with creativity, and it is an adventure game that doesn't have the usual pacing and logic problems, since it lets you solve any puzzle in at least three different ways.

If you want a really creative puzzle game in a small, well wrapped, package, this is for you. It's certainly not the most challenging puzzle game out there, but the main mechanic of stacking into various characters for certain abilities is still fun. The silent-film era style fits with the cartoony gameplay and logic of the world, and there's a fair amount of collectibles if you're like me and like neurotically combing levels for all the stuff. For $10, it was a good buy.

So, I usually try to write reviews for games that I've played within the first week or so after I've finished it, or after I've played a significant amount of time for a game that has no flat ending. For this game, it's been just over a week (about 9 days) as I've been pretty busy lately, and I thought I'd sit down and write a review now.

But funnily enough, I don't even really remember that much about the game, and it's only been a week! I get really involved into most games that I play and just sink myself into them. I don't play games while randomly talking to other people or anything like that. What that tells me is that this game hasn't left a big impact on me at all, sadly.

Does that mean it is a bad game? No, not necessarily. I thought it was fun when I played it, as the style of puzzles is unique for the most part, as you swap around with different characters who hold different powers, and you have to build yourself up (or drop yourself down) to proper sizes to get around the puzzles.

I remember the locations, like the train or the cruise ship or the station. I remember the game was tongue-in-cheek with its style of cutscenes and self-directed humor. But in the long run, it didn't excite me that much playing it, and I remember very little about what the actual puzzles were.

The puzzles, for the most part, are really simple in most cases, and you can just use Hints if you get that stuck for some reason. I like that the game has multiple ways to solve most of the puzzles, but it is still not that difficult to find them all, and each solution is usually just as easy as the others. If you don't go out of your way to find all of the solutions or to do the special challenges in each level, then you could probably beat the game in about 90 minutes.

As I said, the game isn't that exciting to play. I laughed at some of the cutscenes or characters, but eventually the style of the game wore off on me. I completed all of the challenges in the game as well, and while some were funny things to discover, it became annoying when I realized that the majority of them just asked to you repeat the same generic action of one character 10+ times.

In the end, there is no desire to replay the game, and as I've forgotten most of the details in the levels and the puzzles (short of their general settings), the game won't last with me much in the long run. I will likely forget it in a few more weeks entirely.

Double Fine is still a good developer, but (please excuse me bringing it up) Psychonauts still remains its best game, and it has stuck with me the longest. I remember everything about it and likely always will. That isn't to say that others won't love this game more than I do, however.

So if the general idea and style seems interesting to you, likely wait for a sale if you want to try it out. It won't take that long to get through, and it is still decently fun in-the-moment. But looking back on it, its unique theme didn't actually make it that special.

It's a fun little puzzle game where the gimmick is that you play as those little Russian dolls that stack on each other (I believe they are called Matryoshka dolls). The puzzles are quite creative and fun, and there are multiple solutions to each puzzle, allowing for a relatively high replay value. If you can't seem to figure out a puzzle by yourself, you can always get a hint from the menu. The third hint will literally tell you what to do to solve the puzzle, so only do that if you are completely stuck. There are also the "Hi-jinx" that you can pull off in each area, and some of them are pretty funny as well.

Overall, I really liked it. It's definitely worth the $10 that they are asking for it.

A game about stacking Russian dolls, saving your family, and . . . stopping child labor industrialists? You got it.

You play as little Charlie Blackmore in this third-person puzzle adventure. Though he is the smallest stacking doll in the game, you can get bigger by stacking into progressively larger dolls, each of which has a unique active ability. Some characters can play an instrument, or give handshakes, or fart out a green cloud of stink, among dozens of others. It sounds like an odd assortment, but you'll need to use most of the powers in this game along with a little imagination to solve the puzzles.

It will take new players up to an hour to grasp what this game is about and how to think in its shoes, but once that locks in, the adventure is great.

There are several solutions to the puzzles in this game, and players are encouraged to repeat the story's challenges to discover them all. You'll use a lot of guess and check, but it's fun to try out different combinations of dolls' abilities in each scenario. In one instance, you are tasked with sabotaging a museum on a cruise ship. You can stack into an illusionist to disguise part of the exhibit, lead rats in to ruin the fun, or just stack into the mummy on display (which happens to be a Russian doll, conveniently) and walk straight out of the museum. Whatever you do, other dolls' reactions will make you laugh.

Other more optional tasks include completing unusual hi-jinks and finding unique Russian dolls scattered throughout the levels. These won't be for everyone, but if you're a completionist with a passion for collecting everything, you'll be right at home here.

The story is appropriately simple. Every so often the cutscenes drag on and become childish, but this is one of the only complaints about the game. The visuals, soundtrack, and sound effects go together really well.

This is an artful game that runs at a nice length and pace. I cared about it enough to 100% it in less than a day. It would be difficult to find another puzzle game like this one.

Stacking è un indie molto interessante.
Lo scopo del gioco è semplice: dovrete risolvere degli enigmi per passare allo step successivo; quello che lo rende particolare (e unico nel suo genere) è il fatto che i personaggi sono tutti matrioske, ognuna con abilità speciali che la caratterizzano; potrete "prendere possesso" di personaggi più grandi di voi introducendovi all'interno di essi.
Personaggi più piccoli quindi saranno in grando di introdursi in personaggi più grandi di loro e così via, andando proprio a formare le classiche bambole della tradizione russa!
Ogni enigma poi ha diverse soluzioni, il che rende una sfida riuscire a trovarle tutte!
Molto belli anche i filmati di gioco in stile retrò, in cui prima vedremo i personaggi muoversi e solo dopo comparirà il testo del dialogo, proprio come nei vecchi film muti.

Un gioco semplice, divertente e affascinante per queste sue particolarità!
