Get Your Head Around Double Fine’s New Metroidvania

Headlander is the next game from Double Fine, and with news that the project lead from the wonderful Stacking is in charge I'm definitely paying attention. Borrowing the body-swapping concept from that Russian Doll-themed game, Headlander applies it more of a Metroidvania structure, with some lovely 70s sci-fi trappings and the option to graft your head onto anything from dogs to dancers.

DF On Stacking And Costume Quest: ‘Anything Is Possible’

Hey! Did you hear the news about Stacking and Costume Quest? No? Oh, right, that's because I'm still in the process of reporting it. Well, the short version is, Double Fine - after what Tim Schafer describes as "a daring and top-secret midnight raid" on Nordic Games HQ - has reclaimed full rights to both Stacking and Costume Quest. Distribution, production, whatever else goes into…

Living Doll: Stacking Is Out On PC

Hello, you. I thought you'd like to know that Stacking is out on Steam. Stacking is Double Fine's puzzley adventure based on nesting dolls. It's proper lovely. There's even "money off" until the 13th. But should you buy it? There's no demo! Well I played a couple of hours of it on the console box, and it was okay - but don't take my back-handed…

Doublefine’s Stacking Is Coming To PC!

When Costume Quest arrived on PC, I hoped it meant Doublefine loved us again. Now, in a characteristically jolly announcement during the X-Play Best of 2011 awards, it has been revealed that the beautifully characterised and wonderfully inventive Stacking is on its way too. All that remains is to sulk until Trenched Iron Brigade stomps onto PC as well. Stacking, for those who do not…
