Stacking DLC "The Lost Hobo King" Hitting This April

Surprise! A downloadable add-on is coming to Stacking. On the heels of an achievement list leak, THQ has confirmed “The Lost Hobo King,” a chunk of DLC that will add a new story, a new environment, new challenges, and a total of 15 additional dolls with brand new powers to the game. No word on pricing, but it has been confirmed that The Lost Hobo King will come to both PSN and Xbox Live Marketplace at some point later this April. 

In brief, The Lost Hobo King will have Charlie recovering a fragmented crown and then re-forging it in order to restore a hobo to power in the kingdom of Camelfoot. You just can’t make this copy up:

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.

 

   
 
== TEASER ==I get the vibe that The Lost Hobo King will be similar to the Costume Quest expansion in both scale and price. If that's the case, you’re looking at tossing 5 bones Double Fine’s way later this April for a bite-size way to extend the experience for another couple of hours. Obviously, we don’t know if that’s the case quite yet with Stacking’s add-on, but we’ll report back when these details are out in the open.

I loved Stacking, and I completed it, but not 100%. It was a really fun game, I was addicted for hours for a few days, then I haven't touched it since. 
 
Really need to 100% it, and complete Costume Quest while I'm at it.

I was waiting for a sale on the game (maybe with the DLC release?), but I want to support DF and it looks plenty fun for $15.

Anyone else think "Camelfoot" sounds suspiciously to something much dirtier?

Good game, pretty fun too. Not a 100% on if I'll pick this up or not, but I'm leaning towards yes.

A lot of people have this game through PS Plus so I predict a lot of people will buy the DLC.

I just watched the quick look for the first time. Don't know why I thought this was just some Puzzle game when Double Fine was working on it. How wrong i've been...
 
I must play it.

Glad that Double Fine has some top notch people writing things like this. Really shows that they know how to make a great hook to get back into the game iwth some DLC.

Definitely looking forward to this. It's a fantastic game and the DLC sounds interesting, but I'm also physically stuck in the game and I'm looking forward to the impending patch so I can start playing again without starting over.
