THQ wants more from Stacking dev

Core games boss praises "brilliant" Double Fine

THQ core games boss, Danny Bilson wants to extend the company's deal with Tim Schafer studio, Double Fine.

The Stacking studio signed up with THQ to create smaller, downloadable titles, the first of which was RPG Costume Quest and the second released on XBLA and PSN last week.


Bilson wrote on Twitter this morning: "Hope people are downloading Stacking like crazy. I want to make more games with Double Fine! Those folks are brilliant."

Stacking has already enjoyed rave reviews online, with 8.5/10 from IGN and GameInformer, and a straight 'A' from 1Up. CVG went for 89%

"Stacking looks and plays unlike any other downloadable game, and Double Fine's unique approach to the puzzle-game genre has been executed brilliantly," said Martin Good, THQ's Executive Vice President of Kids, Family and Casual Games.

"Players of all skill levels will be able to enjoy finding creative solutions to the huge array of challenges in a game filled with the vivid imagination of Tim Schafer, Lee Petty and Double Fine."
