The full details for the upcoming DLC content for Double Fine’s Stacking have been announced. The new chapter in Charlie Blackmore’s adventure continues this April with the release of “The Lost Hobo King”, on both the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.

In the new chapter for the game, Charlie heads off on an adventure into the kingdom of Camelfoot, where he will help his hobo friend Levi take care of an important family matter. Charlie has to help Levi recover the lost pieces of the crown in order for his uncle to take his place as rightful heir to the throne. The DLC package includes:
  • an all-new storyline
  • new challenges, each with multiple solutions
  • more than 15 new unique dolls, each with new abilities
  • new set of mischief making hi-jinks to discover and enjoy
  • new achievements and trophies
I am anxious to see what else Double Fine can do with the stacking doll concept. Stacking itself was very charming, it will be interesting to see if the game retains that same charm when set in a different environment. The exact release date and pricing for the content has not been announced. You can read the full press release on the next page.

 



In early April, the adventures of Charlie Blackmore continue in The Lost Hobo King, an all-new add-on content for Stacking on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®Network for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

In Stacking, one of 2011’s most critically acclaimed downloadable titles, players joined the adventures of little Charlie Blackmore as he rescued his chimney sweeping family from the clutches of the industrialist known only as the Baron. Charlie’s unique ability to stack into dolls larger than himself and use their abilities to overcome challenges was the key to his success.

In The Lost Hobo King, Charlie travels to the kingdom of Camelfoot to help his hobo friend Levi with an important family matter. Levi’s uncle Rufus, heir to the throne of Hobo, may only take his rightful place if the lost crown can be found. To recover the fragmented crown, Charlie must use his unique talents to overcome several tests of valor left by the ancient hobo mystics. It is only then that the ancient crown can be re-forged, Rufus crowned, and the fractured hobo people united under one sardine.

The Lost Hobo King downloadable pack extends the Stacking experience with features that include:
· An all-new storyline sprinkled with Double Fine’s signature charm;
· A fully realized environment to explore – the lost hobo kingdom of Camelfoot;
· Several new challenges, each with multiple solutions;
· More than 15 new unique dolls, each with new abilities;
· A new set of mischief making hi-jinks to discover and enjoy;
· New achievements and trophies to earn.
