Time-tinkering platformer Constant C to land on Xbox 360 next spring


5pb Games (aka Mages) is bringing puzzle platformer Constant C to Xbox 360 in Spring 2014, though there's no word on the recently Greenlighted Steam version. The game's Steam Community page also promises Mac and Linux versions "in the near future."

Constant C, already out on Windows PC via Desura, is based in a space station where time suddenly freezes - anything goes in space. The puzzling comes from making objects move through time, as well as some gravity shifting that's a little reminiscent of And Yet it Moves.

As for the Xbox Live version, 5pb promises some "console-specific enhancements" such as revamped localization. There's no word yet on price, but the PC version goes for $10.

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.
