2K Play has announced that the highly anticipated Xbox Live Arcade title, The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom, will be available for download February 17.

This Live title tells the tale of the villainous P.B. Winterbottom and his quest to steal pies in a silent film-inspired world. After P.B. Winterbottom takes a bite of Chronoberry Pie, he attains the ability to defy the rules of time and clone himself, thus kicking off this time-bending adventure. The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom will be available next month exclusively on Xbox Live for 800 Microsoft Points.

For a behind-the-scenes look at P.B. Winterbottom, check out the current issue of Game Informer for "The Strange Tale of the Odd Gentleman." In this feature, senior editor Matt Helgeson tells the tale of the game's creators Matt Korba and Paul Bellezza, and shares the process of P.B. Winterbottom's development from concept to indie title, and finally an XBLA game.
