Steins;Gate Publisher Bringing Indie Puzzle Platformer To Xbox 360 In U.S.

5pb are breaking out of their niche of visual novels and all-gals fighters to publish a puzzle-platformer on Xbox Live Arcade in North America. The game is titled Constant C, and it’s slated for release in spring 2014.



Constant C is about something called the “Superluminal Project,” a program initiated by the “most brilliant scientists” under the authorization of the president and a man named Professor Nicholas, in the hopes of controlling the flow of time and space.


As things would have it, one day the flow of time stops at the space station where the Superluminal Project is being carried out. Subsequently, a rescue robot is dispatched to survey the damage and return things to normal. That’s where you come in.


Constant C was developed by a developer named IGS, and is also coming to PC via Steam Greenlight as a self-published title. 5pb say the game features over 100 levels during which you can control gravity, time and momentum. The 360 version will have a revamped localization.

    This one has also been on Desura for a while, I remember buying it in a bundle some months ago. Didn’t play it though… I should give it a try.

      Thanks for the info. It looks interesting so I’ll keep an eye out for the PC version.

    The 360 is still alive for stuff like this? Wow.

    Sounds like a mix of VVVVVV and some time-based game I don’t know.

    FYI, Makoto Asada of Cave fame (who recently moved over to Mages/5pb) is working as the producer for this console port. He wasn’t involved in the original development of the game with IGS, but he is in charge of the console version. He’s also working on two not-yet-announced Xbox One projects for Mages, apparently one of which is a shooter and one is in a different genre.
