Update (1/14 3:35pm): Apple has now officially chosen Lifeline as the new App Store Free App of the Week.
Lifeline’s unique brand of notification and the text-based story telling is now available for free on the App Store. The very highly rated game usually sells for as much as $2.99 and can now be downloaded to all your iOS devices for free. In fact, this download comes with an “Apple Watch App for iPhone.”
Head below for more details:
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.
