Stacks On Stacks (On Stacks) is a 3d game of block stacking set in an exuberant and bizarre universe. The game's objective is to build stable, tall towers without having them topple over. Employing realistic physics with very simple controls, SoSoS captures the joy and wonder of the childhood activity of block stacking -- refreshed as a video game for audiences of all ages.
SoSoS began as a prototype for an arcade cabinet being put together by local developers from Bloomington, IN. Since then, that simple prototype has been expanded into a fleshed out, polished game worthy of hours of play. SoSoS ran a successful Greenlight campaign and will be launched on Steam and PS4. A demo of the game was featured on Gamejolt. It was very well received and spawned numerous Let's Play videos.
