The storyline is centred around time, following a failed time travel experiment that occurred at an American University that causes time to become damaged and gives the three main characters in the game the ability to manipulate it. Jack Joyce can stop time, and Paul Serene can see into the future to help decide which choices should be made in the present.

Developers Remedy Entertainment have enlisted the help of a scientist in order to make the complex plot follow theoretical physics.
