I recently sunk some quality, mind-bending time into The Odd Gentlemen’s upcoming Xbox Live Arcade puzzle-platformer The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom, and I’ve returned from the future (or is it the past?) to share with you my impressions, including this one:
“The first thing you’ll notice about the game is the stunning Edward Gorey-meets-silent-film art design. It might not be for everyone, but it’s undeniably inventive and executed wonderfully. And when you combine that art style with the interstitial poems that explain the context for each puzzle and the haunting, silent movie-ish soundtrack, you get one pretty damn whimsical and engaging game."
