Description

“[A] surprising iPhone and Apple Watch bestseller is pushing the boundaries of fiction” - boingboing.net
“This is the best game on the Apple Watch” - Time.com

Lifeline is a playable, branching story of survival against all odds. Using your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, you will help Taylor make life or death decisions, and face the consequences together.

Acclaimed writer Dave Justus (Fables: The Wolf Among Us) weaves a gripping interactive story through the aftermath of a crash landing on an alien moon. Taylor is stranded, the rest of the crew are dead or missing, and Taylor’s communicator can only reach you.

A totally unique experience enabled by modern devices, this story plays out in real time. As Taylor works to stay alive, 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 Taylor directly from your Apple Watch or your iPhone lock screen, without launching into the app.

Or, dive in and jump back to earlier points in the story, and see what happens when you make a different choice. Simple actions can have a profound effect. Complete any single path to restart the story and unlock this mode.

Lifeline is a deep, immersive story of survival and perseverance, with many possible outcomes. Taylor is relying on YOU.

NEW in version 1.8: Stick around after the game for a special story epilogue from Dave Justus. For players who have already finished the game, the Sneak Peek becomes available under the game options. Enjoy!

Internet connection not required. No in-app purchases and no ads.

Praise for Lifeline:

“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

“I felt an immediate attachment to a fictional character pinging me from a strange galaxy to my wearable.” - Luke Hopewell, Gizmodo Australia

“[P]laying it on the Apple Watch makes you truly feel like you’re exchanging messages with an astronaut via a futuristic transmitter.” - Michael Andronico, Tom’s Guide

“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

The first in a series of groundbreaking text adventures, Lifeline kept us in suspense the whole time, desperately awaiting the next message from marooned astronaut Taylor. As you receive text notifications telling you what Taylor’s doing, you reply with instructions on which way to travel, whether to explore a derelict ship, and other crucial decisions. The tension mounts as you try to help the castaway survive, and the option to rewind and pick different choices makes the game wonderfully replayable.

Great game. One “small” complaint

This is a great game with an amazing story. My only complaint is the font size. As an older guy with failing eyes it would be nice to be able to adjust the text size. As it is, reading the text is needlessly slow and painful as I try to make it out.

Otherwise a near perfect game.

Awesome

I played this game like 2 years ago on an android phone, now that I got an iOS system, I was glad to see that this game was available on app store too, so I bought it again! Great story!!! Worth the time!
