App description: The original Lifeline took the App Store by storm, reaching #1 Top Paid Game on iPhone and Apple Watch in 29 countries. Its compelling mix of real-time storytelling and Dave Justuss suspenseful writing continues to capture the imaginations of countless players worldwide.

Lifeline 2 raises the bar with a new story almost twice as long as the original, with many more choices and paths to explore. Lifeline 2 features a 28-minute original soundtrack and is fully optimized for watchOS 2, delivering the best Lifeline experience on Apple Watch yet.

The second story in the Lifeline series connects you with Arika, a young woman on a deadly quest to avenge her parents and rescue her long-lost brother. Your choices will keep her alive and help her succeed as she faces mortal danger on her way to a final, fateful showdown against the forces that threaten all of humanity.

Lifeline stories play out in real time. As Arika travels to complete her quest, notifications deliver new messages throughout your day. Keep up as they come in, or catch up later when youre free. You can even respond to Arika directly from your Apple Watch or your iPhone lock screen, without launching into the app on your phone.

After completing any story branch, you can rewind to earlier parts of the story, or speed through parts youve already read. See what happens when you make a different choice: will you guide Arika virtuously, or cut corners to gain an edge? Seemingly simple actions can deeply affect the outcome.

Arikas story, and the fate of the world, depend on your judgment. You will face the consequences together, because Arika is relying on YOU.

Lifeline 2 features no in-app purchases and no ads. An Internet connection is not required.

Praise for the original Lifeline:

[A] surprising iPhone and Apple Watch bestseller is pushing the boundaries of fiction - boingboing.net

This is the best game on the Apple Watch - Time.com

Ive 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

For a few brief hours I cared really cared about the fate of a completely fictional character. I dont think any other game Ive played has made me feel that way before. - Matt Thrower, PocketGamer

I was really surprised too. Accidentally came across it when logged into my NZ account to download some soft-launched games.
No announcement, no TA thread, no mentions anywhere. Strange.

Absolutely stellar writing, yet again. Much like Taylor in Lifeline 1, Arika is instantly likable. I deleted Lifeline 1 after finishing it a couple of times, but by the looks of things, the Lifeline series could be part of my favorite games on iOS. Downloaded the first again and this time 'round it's going anywhere.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

The theme for this one looks really cool. Anyone have any impressions yet? I don't have any money so it's going to be a dry week for me.. :\

Hey guys! Happy to see you're checking the game out already! I hope you enjoy getting to know ArikaI sure did, personally, reading the story as Dave wrote it. Lots of laugh-out-loud moments.

If anybody has questions about the game or the series I'm happy to answer.
