Constant C is a physics-based, puzzle-platforming where you play as a rescue robot in a space station where the time has stopped, and fight against this fatal crisis with your courage and intelligence.

In the year 1905, Albert Einstein published the theory of special relativity, suggesting that nothing can move faster than the speed of light, what if any mortal could break that constant? Stretch beyond that limits? Would human finally find a way to cheat death and wins over immortality? Or is it Chaos that follows the manipulation of time and gravity?

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...
