About Constant C

In the not-too-distant future…

The [Superluminal Project] was initiated by the most brilliant scientists on earth under the guidance of the President and Professor Nicholas in the hopes of controlling the flow of time and space itself. The project was developed in a remote outer space research station with the full backing of the earth government. No expense was spared and the amount of resources dedicated to the project was unheard of in human history. This monumental undertaking bears with it the hopes and the expectations of all mankind regarding space and time travel.

But one day, time just suddenly stopped at the space station… The experiment, the people, everything was frozen in space and time.

A rescue robot is immediately dispatched to survey the damage to the space station and return things to normal operating parameters. However, things are in a worse state than you could have possibly imagined and now it’s up to you to fulfill all the duties that had been inevitably entrusted to you…

Solve the mystery of what went wrong and save the universe from destruction!

    Looks nice.

    Look ok, but there’s already a flood of this kind of game from the indie sector.

    5pb. should’ve leveraged their Japanese strengths and made it stand out with moe characters and beautiful anime art. (Which western developers always fall on their face trying to ape.)

      To my knowledge the game is developed by a Taiwanese company and it has already been released on PC since March earlier this year. 5pb seems to be handling the XBLA localization, I’m not sure how much say they actually have in the content of the game.

      That’s hardly the art design to go with on the 360.
