The original Lifeline took the App Store by storm, reaching #1 Top Paid Game on iPhone and Apple Watch in 29 countries. Its compelling mix of real-time storytelling and Dave Justus’s suspenseful writing continues to capture the imaginations of countless players worldwide.

Lifeline 2 raises the bar with a new story almost twice as long as the original, with many more choices and paths to explore. Lifeline 2 features a 28-minute original soundtrack and is fully optimized for watchOS 2, delivering the best Lifeline experience on Apple Watch yet.

The second story in the Lifeline series connects you with Arika, a young woman on a deadly quest to avenge her parents and rescue her long-lost brother. Your choices will keep her alive and help her succeed as she faces mortal danger on her way to a final, fateful showdown against the forces that threaten all of humanity.

Lifeline stories play out in real time. As Arika travels to complete her quest, notifications deliver new messages throughout your day. Keep up as they come in, or catch up later when you’re free. You can even respond to Arika directly from your Apple Watch or your iPhone lock screen, without launching into the app on your phone.

After completing any story branch, you can rewind to earlier parts of the story, or speed through parts you’ve already read. See what happens when you make a different choice: will you guide Arika virtuously, or cut corners to gain an edge? Seemingly simple actions can deeply affect the outcome.

Arika’s story, and the fate of the world, depend on your judgment. You will face the consequences together, because Arika is relying on YOU.

Lifeline 2 features no in-app purchases and no ads. An Internet connection is not required.


Praise for the original Lifeline:

“[A] surprising iPhone and Apple Watch bestseller is pushing the boundaries of fiction” -

“This is the best game on the Apple Watch” -

“I’ve played many games that I find engrossing, but Lifeline may be one of the first that changed the way I thought about my daily routine, which leapt off the screen and became a part of my lived experience.” - Eli Cymet, Gamezebo

“For a few brief hours I cared – really cared – about the fate of a completely fictional character. I don’t think any other game I’ve played has made me feel that way before.” - Matt Thrower, PocketGamer

Editors' Notes

Once you start playing Lifeline 2, it’s almost impossible to stop thinking about what its main character, Arika, is up to. That’s because this riveting text adventure consists of one long back-and-forth conversation between the two of you, with the game’s events occurring in real time. Arika’s messages come to you through notifications on your device, and you pick one of two responses; each of your choices affects how the fantasy-based story pans out. Helping her on her mission to save her brother and avenge her parents kept us spellbound the whole way through.

Totally worth it


I played the first lifeline a while back and never knew there was a second or third game, when I actually found out I got so excited and quickly downloaded this game in hopes it would live up to its name. The game was amazing and I quickly became addicted, not being able to put my phone down... I felt super responsible for the character and thought of her as my friend, this game really does hit you in the feels especially at the end... It's another great lifeline game and it's totally worth the price.... Hope whoever reads this thinks of buying it :)

Awesome game, but....


I love this game. It's so amazing - wonderfully designed. However, there is a huge glitch when Arika is in the chapel. After she figures out she's been giving in circles and gets ready to make the next deduction, the writing stops. There's no boxes to choose, nothing.
By the looks of it, body else has experienced tins, but I would REALLY like it fixed, as I can't continue with the game unless something changes.
Please fix the glitch!
Otherwise, great game 10/10 would recommend (with no glitch)
