“[A] surprising iPhone and Apple Watch bestseller is pushing the boundaries of fiction” - “This is the best game on the Apple Watch” - 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. WATCH US: 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 Lifeline was created by: Dave Justus Mars Jokela Dan Selleck Colin Liotta Jason Nowak Ben “Books” Schwartz



  • Incredible.

    The way an app can captivate me and keep me waiting in anticipation for a notification is mind boggling. The way the story is written, the way Taylor responds, the way the app interacts with you is outstanding. You NEED this game. *end transmission*
  • Needs a movie or a Netflix show or maybe even a game

    When I saw this free story game I thought this was going be pretty boring despite seeing the great reviews for I’m not much of a reader. So I downloaded it mostly for it was free and I needed something to do when I died in squads on Fortnight or one playing rainbow six to help pass the time. Than I actually grew like it over time. Sometimes I would have to convince myself to read it but when I did read it I slowly started getting more interested in the story to the point I wouldn’t have to force my self no more. It became naturally. It also helps when they threw little jokes at you and give you funny response they let you have the option to say. Helps keep you entertained. My favorite part in all this has to be when he gets in the peak and... well, those who read it knows what happens there. My verdict is for this 5 of 5 for if it can capture a person like me who hates reading and it also add the reader a atmosphere of music go along capture them in moment is perfect in all situations you will encounter. All I hope is that my eyes won’t turn green from after all I read.
  • Interesting concept but

    By Terrytown78
    I wanted to like this game, but the main character is so annoying and the dialogue is lame. It’s like being in contact with a bratty millennial rather than an astronaut. Couldn’t get passed the character, and that’s unfortunately a huge part of the game.

    I really love the game. It is very realistic and I love it that way.
  • Absolutely astounding

    By Unholyfatman
    This is well worth the 1.99 I was so involved with the character Taylor i didn’t think I would care but after days of compelling messages and what almost seemed like real-time banter I was attached to the character all my decisions weighed heavily on me because I knew they would affect Taylor in a negative or positive way. I look forward to the rest of the catalog which I have just purchased
  • Great game

    By Ilikepie1523

  • Recommend by Rooster Teeth

    I was listening to their podcast called Steak off and Burnie and Gus started talking about how much fun this game was so I gave it a try. I love the real time aspect of the game. I could just be looking through the phone and have notifications pop up from Taylor and get really excited. I’m starting to get really emotionally attached to this game. Great job!
  • Worth the 2 bucks

    That's all I want to say about that
  • There shouldn’t be ads

    By maggot101
    Every time I open the app up there is full screen ads on a game I paid for
