“[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

Why can't Taylor be real!?
Playing this game made me feel so connected to Taylor, the main character, and I don't know how the author did it, but I can't help but yell or cry at Taylor (in real life) to do something. By the end I was so emotionally invested in Taylor as a friend, that when it ended, I was so sad that I couldn't keep talking with Taylor. This game was VERY well done, and I feel, it's one most connectable and realistic ( emotions, etc.)games out there. I recommend this completely!
Weird and annoying
I chose this bc of the great reviews and bc the concept is intriguing: a replayable adventure in space that relied on my choices. Instead, I'm stuck babysitting a whiny dork who can't make the most basic decisions to keep himself safe and who needs constant emotional reassurance. The decisions I'm asked to make are "go east or west" (without any description of what's east and what's west) and "chili with beans or without." Ugh. Not to mention that in a crash scenario, no one has even mentioned ACTUALLY GETTING THIS GUY SOME REAL HELP BY GOING TO FIND HIM! Maybe's he's so annoying that everyone else is just going, "leave him there, at least we don't have to listen to him anymore."
This is in addition to the lack of control over the pace of the game. It goes at it's own pace, sometimes hours in between plays and sometimes just minutes. Notifications help, but they come in bunches that can be extremely inconvenient.
I won't be buying any of the other games in the series.
