2K Play and The Odd Gentlemen’s time-bending, pie-eating platform puzzle game The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom has unbuttoned its pants and settled in for an official launch date. The Xbox Live Arcade exclusive indie title will be released on February 17th at 800 MS Points.

The game will put you in control of villainous pie thief P.B. Winterbottom, who devours a magical Chronoberry Pie and gains the ability to control time and replicate himself. So, sorta along the lines of the excellent Braid, you’ll have to figure out ways to manipulate time to clear stages and swipe every pie in existence, with a black and white silent film aesthetic complimenting the oddball story and gameplay. Check after the break for the official trailer.
