About this game

Lifeline is a playable, branching story of survival against all odds. 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.

Lifeline pioneered a new narrative 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.

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.

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

“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

Cool concept. I was finding myself pretty engrossed in the story. Then the character died and I had to start over, which is fine, but then I noticed there is a fast mode you can use to speed through the story without waiting, which is nice for catching up to where you were, but now I'm tempted to use it and waiting feels like a self imposed restriction. In my opinion you should lose the option for fast mode after you have caught up to where you were.

Absolutely in love with this game. Loved it the first time I played it, loved it even more when I revisisted it some years later for the nostalgia. Taylor is super likeable and the story is really engaging. Had me worried sick about them constantly lol. Also Taylor's dialogue is exceptionally good at painting a vivid picture of what's happening. I almost never felt lost about the setting or situation. The final main event will always be in my brain, can't forget something that epic and intense.

it was ok. decent for the price. however the story is too short and after playing through it again, the choices don't have a significant effect on the end. in fact most choices aren't even really choices because the character has a mind of its own. suspense is built by making you wait extended periods of time. so mostly hardly any replayability. i guess the devs didn't want to put much effort in... (please buy for the story and support the devs because the story is actually pretty good)
