The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom is a puzzle platforming game for Xbox Live Arcade developed by The Odd Gentlemen.[1] Previews for the game have praised its unique puzzle mechanics, comparing it favorably to Portal and Braid in the creativity of its puzzles.[2][3] It was released on February 17, 2010.[4] It was originally a student's graduate thesis at the University of Southern California.[5] It was published by 2K Play.[6]


The player controls the main character, P.B. Winterbottom, to attempt to gather pies. The player may record an action and a clone will constantly repeat that action, serving as a platform, pie-fetcher, or other puzzle-solving device.

The game is visually presented like a silent film, reminiscent of art nouveau or films from the late 1800's/early 1900's. As such, there is no spoken dialogue, as all speech is instead shown through title cards inbetween stages. The game is also (mostly) in black-and-white, and the score is primarily composed of piano arrangements, much like those of silent-era films that had a musician play the soundtrack while the film was being played.
