aftermath of a hostile ground invasion of Earth by ravaging alien forces. At
first, the purpose of the invasion is unknown, but to the horror of all
surviving humans, the objectives become clear; the aliens plan to use the planet
Earth to harvest all non-radioactive carbon from the planet, thus the title
"C-12." Most of the human race has been decimated and those captured alive are
used for "droning," the process by which the aliens reprogram and adapt humans
into cyborg warriors.
It is up to you, playing as resistance fighter Riley Vaughan, to
save the earth from impending doom. Armed with an imaging unit that has been
implanted to replace his left eye, as well as a powerful arsenal of weapons,
Vaughan must complete tasks, collect items and destroy the enemy in order to
carry out his missions and uncover the secrets behind the alien invasion.
C-12: Final Resistance will allow players to explore dynamic, darkly
detailed environments that include more than 35 different missions and
