2K bringing two indie games to XBLA

Axel & Pixel and P.B. Winterbottom.

2K Play has signed promising XBLA indie duo Axel & Pixel and The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom.

Point and click adventure Axel & Pixel arrives first this autumn, and was spotted on the ESRB website earlier this week. The game follows painter Axel and his dog Pixel on their journey through Dream World - a land hand-painted by Czech developer Silver Wish.

The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom, developed by LA studio The Odd Gentlemen, tells the story of a cheeky pie-thief who can travel backwards and forwards in time. He can "co-operate with, compete against and disrupt his past present and future selves" somehow.

The world is described as a "macabre and comical silent film", the first shots of which can be found on the Winterbottom website. The game began as a thesis project and has gone on to win plaudits from critics and the Independent Games Festival alike.

The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom arrives early next year.
