XBLA Wednesday: The Misadventures of P. B. Winterbottom

The Misadventures of P. B. Winterbottom is this weeks new XBLA title available to purchase from the Xbox Live Marketplace for 800MS Points, and is developed by The Odd Gentlemen.
It was only up until recently when one of the writers here at Platform Nation wrote an article and directed my attention to this game in which you can create your own paradox in the grim and slightly comical world of Bakersburg, full of mischief, time travel and of course P. B. Winterbottom’s beloved Chronoberry Pie.

In the game you play as P. B. Winterbottom traveling through time and space to search for his beloved Chronoberry Pie. The game has 75 “movie” levels were you solve puzzle’s and explore the local town of Bakursburg. One of the amazing features is the ability to travel in time and disrupt your past, present and future selves, thus if you die in the future you can return to the past and alter what happens so you can survive. Each level has multiple outcomes because of P. B. Winterbottom’s time-bending abilities. The games levels and cut scenes has prominent features that stand out, one of which is the silent movie style of gameplay and cut scene’s which can be see in the official trailer and in the screenshot below.

This new XBLA title looks very good visually with it’s unique silent movie look and feel and might be one of these XBLA that you haven’t really heard much of before but comes along and takes everyone by surprise and intrigues you. It certainly intrigued me when Bobby Gonzalez wrote his article last week and it made me look into the game more. So that brings me too the end and the final question is will you break the time-space continuum for the love of pie!?
