2K has announced via press release that they have a new game available via Steam, and it’s a puzzler like few others.
2K Play announced today that the critically acclaimed The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom is now available for download on Windows PC through Steam. Set in a world made famous by keystone cops, theater organs and pie-in-the-face slapstick, the inventive game has been heralded as a “big contender for DLC game of the year” by 1UP.com, who gave the game a perfect 100/100 score. The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom presents the comical escapades of the portly pie thief P.B. Winterbottom on his mad-capped pursuit of scrumptious brain-teasing pies that wreak frontal lobe havoc from the puzzle-filled euphoria of time manipulation and self-replication.
Created by The Odd Gentlemen, The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom was originally released for Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360. The Windows PC version was developed by 2K China and is available exclusively on Steam and comes with many new appetizing ingredients, including expanded leaderboard options, new unlockable achievements, five additional brain-teasing puzzles and Steam Cloud, which allows players to take the game with them on the road by accessing saved games from the Steam network.
This is a game that caught my eye, and I plan to take a more in-depth look as soon as possible.
