Creëer je eigen paradox... voor de liefde van gebak
Treed een macabere en komische stille wereld binnen die gevuld is met ondeugendheid, reizen door de tijd en heerlijk gebak. Neem jezelf op en gebruik je vermogen om de tijd te buigen om met jezelf uit het verleden, het heden en de toekomst samen te werken, te concurreren en te onderbreken. De ongelukkige avonturen van Winterbottom geven een wispelturige draai aan de noties van tijd, ruimte en spel.
Ga mee met Winterbottom op zijn prijswinnende debuut Misadventures terwijl hij door meer dan 80 unieke puzzels reist. Winterbottom veroorzaakt onheil en chaos terwijl hij de mysterieuze en moeilijk te pakken Chronoberry Pie achtervolgt op zijn spectaculaire tocht door ruimtetijd.

Warning: The Steam overlay causes frequent crashes in this game for me so I would recommend disabling it for this game.

Hiding under one of the stranger titles on Steam is a rather unique puzzle game styled after silent movies. Your goal: To collect pie. Lots and lots of pie. While the mechanics are easy to learn, the game quickly becomes complex when you have to coordinate the movements of multiple recorded copies of yourself which you can interact with in order to finish levels as quickly and with as few recordings as possible.

While I played the majority of the game a long time ago, I just finished it up today and found it easy to pick back up and get into. The game is very well put together and it's great fun for only $5.

THE PIE IS NOT A LIE!

Short Verdict: A good puzzle game, despite its flaws. Requires you to think fast, too. Last but not least, it's cheap.

Overview: The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom is basically a puzzle game in which you control Winterbottom to create and manage clones in some sort of time controlling mechanics in order to collect all pies in each level. Although it's a puzzle game in essence, you'll also need a bit of dexterity and precision in some levels.

Pros:
  • Beautiful 2D graphics with a lot of personality
  • Great BGM, perfect for the setting of the game
  • If I counted right, there are 50 main story levels, plus 30 challenges
  • Most of the puzzles are smart and rewarding when you figure them out
  • The level hints sometimes provide a slight help, but they don't spoonfeed you--they really hit the mark
  • Even the clones characteristics and the conditions for being able to collect pies change between the 5 sets of levels, adding a lot to the puzzles

Cons:
  • Even though my computer runs modern games with no problems, Winterbottom lagged in some levels (my pc told me something about the color scheme, but I didn't try changing it)
  • The learning curve is messy--the first set of levels is ridiculously easy, then the second quickly becomes insanely hard, and after that it finally hits the mark. Seems to me like lack of planning or of proper tutorials, and I almost threw the towel on the second set of levels.
  • I personally hate it when a puzzle game requires ridiculous precision and perfect movements--puzzle games should be about thinking hard enough, not attempting the same thing over and over again until you just find the perfect spot and the perfect timing
  • Some of the main levels (and quite a few challenges) are uninspired and just plain boring to play. I have to mention the very first challenge level, which is probably one of the most stupid ones and almost made me give up on all challenges. Make sure you try at the least a few of the other challenges.

Bought on: Steam Store for R$ 1,99 (US$ 1.24 on the US store at the same time).

Verdict: All things considered, it's a good puzzle game. Yes, it has some flaws and can be infuriating sometimes. Just keep in mind that this is NOT a zen puzzle game and you'll be required to move quickly and think fast all the time. But most of the game is fun, especially if you consider how much I've payed for it. It's also worth its full price, I think.

Similar games: People call it a clone from Braid, which I haven't played, so I guess they probably have their similarities. I could also say it slightly reminds me of Toki Tori, for the puzzle solving and the ability to control time.

One of my favorite puzzle games. Each segments in the game offer a different variety of puzzle gimmick to exploit. The music and graphics are perfect for such a game and the gameplay is fluid. The controls for this type of game is perfect and does not leave you frustrated by the movement of your character. This leaves you to focus on puzzle solving only. Great game which typically goes on sale at a great price. Worth every penny.

A puzle game that plays with time, and working with multiple versions of yourself. An excelent game.
I got about 3 hours of game play.

Time-paradox puzzle-platformer. Worth playing for the soundtrack alone. Years after I played this game, the soundtrack still haunts me.

Bought it for $0.59 couple of years ago.. Only had the chance to play it now.
Why da hell don't I hear about these kind of games..!?? Is there only Braid in the world? Or are they just too hard?
This game is spetacular. Hard, funny, NEAT ambience and soundtrack. Obscure plot/moral.

The game has a wonderful atmosphere aided by astonishing visuals, excellent soundtrack and a very incredible overall art style. The puzzle mechanics are unique and although they rely on one specific mechanic, the additional elements keep up the challenge and introduce new ways of thinking into every new level visited.

So why the negative review?
Because this particular *puzzle* game relies heavily on twitch reflexes. A puzzle game should be something you play to use your brain, not your shooter skills and hand-eye coordination. And this plagues the vast majority of the game, including each and every bonus level. Sadly, after a time (and lots and lots of resets on one level because you just missed the strict time limit) all the fun and challenge turns into nothing but pure frustration and anger, which is a clear indicator when a game fails to be a game.

The main levels are worth a few bucks for the design and the utterly charming narrative that tells a funny, yet somewhat bittersweet story, but for hardcore puzzle gamers and achievement hunters I advise against buying this title.

If you like your games to be challenging with lots of content then this one is a good one for you. I've owned it for a couple of years now and I keep coming back to it every couple of months to try beating my own score on the unlockable timed levels. Every time I come back to the game I am reminded of why I love it even though at times it can touch the nerve that induces my nerd rage. It's casual to an extent, with dynamic and beautiful art work, and while the first couple of levels ease you into the gameplay nicely, you will quickly learn why I call this game challenging. Any game I can open up and have fun with two years later is well worth the few bucks. Happy Pie Hunting.

The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom is truly born of Braid. It's all about time manipulation puzzles. But there's none of the somber pretentiousness of Braid. This game is a bit silly, with a frenetic soundtrack of ragtime-style piano and clarinet. I like the presentation of this game.

But if the presentation is a bit silly, there's no silly in the challenge. The puzzles are hard, and they appear to exist only for the sake of existing; there's no great story or adventure here, just level after level of increasingly difficult time-bending puzzles.

P.B. Winterbottom's greatest achievement is achieving a price tag of $0.49 during the 2010 Steam Holiday sale. I don't imagine that, years later, people are hanging on for another big 90% off sale for this game. But if you enjoy puzzle games, this is not a bad buy.

Nice puzzler.. Those shadow clones remind me of Braid, but Winterbottom is far from being that good. Still, it's recommended for anyone who likes puzzles.

A fantastic brain-melter and mind-twisting game with a beautiful soundtrack and storybook-style illustrations. The last chapter is the cause of a lot of headaches :D

This game was a nice surprise. I only paid around $0.50 for it, but it proved to be one of my best purchases. The art style, characters and story are a delight! The theme music will be stuck in your head for weeks. The game plays well with a keyboard, but a controller is your best bet to avoid frustration with later levels.
Buy it right now

Craziest and most charming puzzle platformer of all time. Slightly moreso than The Lost Vikings, but only slightly.
