The Misadventures Of P.B. Winterbottom

Next month, Xbox Live Arcade will be going super retro with the release of The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom, a platformer influenced by the style of the 60s.... the 1860s. Winterbottom comes out on Feb. 17, for 800 Microsoft Points.

Things that are good about this game:

  • Innovative platforming action
  • The title character is chasing pies
  • Weird time-shifting dynamic
  • Looks like Edward Gorey meets Terry Gilliam
  • Uses the word "Buttwit" as an insult.

At this moment, TheFeed's Jack Gaskill is playing Winterbottom in our game laboratory, and he says: "It's pretty damn whimsical." You heard it hear first.

Please enjoy this trailer:

This kind of quirky, original game is right up my alley. What about you, Buttwit? Plan to download it?
