“[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



  • watchOS 5 Please

    Great apps for Apple Watch! Thanks!
  • Unique gameplay and awesome story

    By OutwashPlain
    A very unique game, unlike any other game I’ve played before. The fact that it’s done in real time is amazing. It keeps you wondering about your fictional friend, Taylor, even when “Taylor is busy”. The story keeps you hooked and the witty writing keeps you entertained. I already thought the game was amazing but when “The Jerk” was referenced I couldn’t help but write a review for it. That was all I needed. And the paddle game...and the chair...and the ash tray... Give this game a try if you like sci-fi, a good story, and clever quips. It’s worth the money.
  • Update for WatchOS 5 please

    By Sloaniebaloney
    I’m sure it’s a great game as the reviews have said but it’s useless to me as I bought it with every intention on playing it on my new Apple Watch.
  • Ehhh

    I kind of enjoyed it in a way. Too slow in some wars. But the story was pretty dull. I felt more like I was affirming Taylor’s opinions more than making choices. Taylor is the stupidest astronaut/ rat scientist ever to enter space and spends most of the time walking across the dull planet and telling you “be right back”. The best advice I could give him was to “breathe” toward the end. I started to troll him and he goes are you sure I should do this??? And I could only think well if you don’t want to why are you contacting me?! Taylor. Taylor. I don’t know it was amusing in its delivery but the story sucked sorry. I will try the other ones because I bought a full pack. Lol
  • Great game! Very entertaining!

    I really like this game.
  • I want to like this game

    The problem I’m having is that the game only sends a notification to my Apple Watch to refer back to my phone to play. I was under the impression I would be able to play directly through my watch. Maybe it’s just an issue with the new watchOS 5, but I really wanted to experience this game mostly through the watch.
  • Great story!

    By Zenkiisadore
    The story line is awesome as with the rest of the series. BUT, I’m getting really tired of the text style responses. It’s like that annoying friend that for some reason can never get a full thought into a text... I love the rest of the game but the chat bubbles either appear too fast OR they appear almost half way through you reading one of the terrible RUN-ON sentences. Everything is either a Run-on or a Sentence Fragment. It irks the hell out of me. I’m taking a break from trying to read the bouncing screen on my watch. The watch needs ALL of the messages at once not just one at a time. The settings say you can change it, however it doesn’t work on the watch. TL;DR GREAT IDEA!! Poor execution 👎🏻 Update*** same day: I deleted the apps. I can’t keep trying to read this crap. It’s terrible. Kill it with fire.
  • Absolutely stunning

    This game kept em on my feet. The writing was so good and I often found my self opening the app for more when it said Taylor was busy. It’s so worth the cheap price. 12/10
  • Its a good game

    By Gpsmpmacxxx12
    It’s a good game and I got it this morning and I just finished the first day because of school but if you didn’t have to wait 5-10mins for Taylor to Finish. But other than that it’s great

    I absolutely love this game. I’m not a huge video game person to start with, but the way you communicate with Taylor, and how real life it seems like has me captivated. Everything seems really real, and it like you are talking to a real person not just a computer. Also I like how your choices don’t necessarily dictate his/hers. Taylor has common knowledge and good ideas, wry humor and keeps you interested. Some say that the only downside is how everything goes in real life time, like for example if he needs an hour to hike some where it actually takes an hour for him to get back to you, but I actually really like this feature. It keeps the game interesting, doesn’t have you playing for hours on end, and makes it seem even more real. I have an Apple Watch and totally love it on there. 100% recommend this game, it is worth your money!
