Historically, people have done a lot of crazy things for pie. It’s a little known fact that Alexander the Great was simply on a quest for a nice pecan spice crust apple pie. Napoleon was looking for the perfect lattice crust blueberry pie. Marco Polo was searching for delicious flan (not pie but close enough). But P.B. Winterbottom will soon be going on the greatest pie related adventure in the history of pie … or adventure.
Coming to PC and Xbox live, The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom looks like a very cerebral platformer/puzzle game. The gameplay revolves around manipulating time to make clones of Winterbottom. Players will have to effectively use these clones to get around the levels and to grab as many pies as possible.
The Misadventures of P. B. Winterbottom looks like it could be a great addition to the XBLA. The art style is very cool and unique and from what I’ve seen of the gameplay, the time manipulation/cloning mechanic looks very thought out and interesting. Hopefully the game keeps making you rethink your cloning powers so you can use them in different ways. There will be comparisons to another outstanding, time manipulating XBLA game but I hope that Winterbottom will stand out enough to be its own game when it comes out Feb. 17th. Check out the trailer below to meet P.B. Winterbottom and see how you will being using your clones.
