P.B. Winterbottom is coming to XBLA

Reading the press release about The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom left me confused.  It clearly conveys the fact that 2K Play is bringing the game to XBLA on February 17 for 800 MS Points.  However, take a look at this brief description of the game:

"Set in a macabre and comical silent film era backdrop, The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom tells the story of the buttwitt villain P.B. Winterbottom, and his ravenous quest to devour every flakey crust of delicious pie he can swipe. Players take on the game’s movie-level “shorts” in the most ingenious way possible to attain the highest score while stacking, smacking, and riding through time."
 
Can anyone explain to me what a "buttwitt villian" is?  That is an odd word that I've never seen before.  We'll post more information about the game as we receive it, but feel free to read through the rest of the press release for other odd word choices.


2K Play Unleashes a Paradox of Pies on February 17, 2010 with The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom

New York, NY - January 14, 2010 – 2K Play announced today that The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom will be available on February 17, 2010 exclusively on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft for 800 Microsoft Points. Set in a macabre and comical silent film era backdrop, The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom tells the story of the buttwitt villain P.B. Winterbottom, and his ravenous quest to devour every flakey crust of delicious pie he can swipe. Players take on the game’s movie-level “shorts” in the most ingenious way possible to attain the highest score while stacking, smacking, and riding through time.

The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom comes fresh from the imaginative ovens of video game "bakers" The Odd Gentlemen and commences just after the portly P.B. Winterbottom swipes a mouth-watering bite of the mysterious Chronoberry Pie. That first scrumptious morsel unsuspectingly gives him the ability to break the rules of time and replicate himself at will, by recording himself and harnessing time-bending abilities to cooperate, compete against, and disrupt his past, present and future selves. These amazing abilities, like fresh ingredients mixed with a mental prowess for problem sleuthing, make The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom the tastiest Xbox LIVE Arcade game of 2010.

The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom will be available on Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 on February 17, 2010.
