Lifeline does a good job of sucking players in, and all but forcing them to feel for Taylor. As the story unfolds, one does feel like part of the solution, and this is a compelling hook. Different choices have different outcomes, and the real-time nature give it an authentic flavor. The one-time purchase price is definitely something to appreciate. It gets high marks for simplicity and for daring to be a bit different. It can be improved, yes, but the starting salvo is pretty easy to fall in love with.
Taylor is fun to talk to. You’ll feel terrible when you lead her to her doom, and you’ll be elated if you actually manage to get her off that rock. She’s a friend who won’t annoy you by texting every second, and she can tell some pretty good stories. Lifeline might just kick off a very interesting genre.
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. ...A short but unique and enthralling piece of interactive fiction.
