Sit back and enjoy as Winterbottom takes you on a funny and a superb adventure!

Lose yourself in this pie-eating madness as Winterbottom starts to gobble up every pie in sight. Play as the famous pie thief of Bakersburg and cause mayhem in the city.

Pie-eating frenzy

Winterbottom once discovers a mystical pie that floats and becomes crazy to gobble that too! And he accidentally enters a time portal chasing the pie. He now gains powers to revisit his past and can create clones!! The game is all about pies and how our gentleman eats all the pies in every level. The story is conveyed in silly and funny poems. This game has a unique black and white style graphics and takes place in the 1980's. The soundtrack is amazing; I really couldn't stop tapping my feet. The puzzles aren't very hard but need to be completed with a lot of brain storming.

Winterbottom can record his actions and a clone will repeat that action too. Clones always loop a specific action and can also be caned to send them flying. The controls are quite buggy on the keyboard so I played it on a gamepad and found it amazing with included vibration.

The game is rather short but hey, this is an indie game and it is supposed to be that way. This beautiful game has been developed by The Odd Gentlemen and published by 2k Games and is exclusive to the PC and Xbox 360.

Final verdict: The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom is a hilarious game and is really worth buying.
