“[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

    The story is written like you are actually there! I could play this story over and over! I would highly recommend this game, especially if you are into dialogue role play.
  • Way Fun!

    I was looking for an interesting game (I don’t browse very often) and I stumbled upon this gem and am having a blast playing it! Worth every penny of the $1.99 I paid!

    I played this game while I was out of work sick. Started over the weekend and was able to finish it fairly quickly. I have got to say this was the best iPhone game I have ever played. It was suspenseful and heart wrenching as well as completely enthusiastic when things went right. Taylor has so much life and I genuinely worried and stressed about him with every turn. It was incredible, and to be honest I was sad it was over. Thank you so much it’s an amazing game and everyone should play it.

  • Amazing Game

    By aime.esor
    Tbh I see a lot of games they try to execute this kind of format but this really takes the cake. Ima keep is short and sweet, I love this game a lot it really helped my hone in on my intuition and thinking about the future. I'm not sure if I do have a good intuition or am good at thinking about consequences, but I saved him on my first try playing and I'm v proud of myself. Thank you for developing this game because it's a masterpiece.

    Fun way to pass time
  • Enjoying it so far

    If there was a text size option this would be perfect
  • Will be playing the sequels

    Update: it's a clever concept, but I don't think there were enough real "choice"... Unlike the original Choose Your Own Adventure books, where there really were multiple outcomes. The choices sort of tunnel towards a good outcome. That being said, it's still a fun game on the Apple Watch, with updates coming in real time. I will play the sequels and hope the storylines get better. I am in the middle of playing this Choose-Your-Own-Adventure-esque game on my Apple Watch. Having a good time. I live the real time aspect to the game. I'll definitely be playing the sequels. Hats off to the developers for paving the way for a whole new subcategory of games for the Apple Watch!

    This game constantly keeps you on your toes and forces you to believe only what is told to you. I love it.
