SEATTLE, June 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Lifeline…, a text-based choose-your-own-adventure game, is available today for Android devices. Developed by 3 Minute Games, a skunkworks-style Big Fish studio operating out of Big Fish's Oakland office, Lifeline… skyrocketed through the iOS charts in May and achieved the rank of #1 Top Paid Game (iPhone) as well as #1 Top Paid App (iPhone). Already available for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, Lifeline… can now be purchased on Android phones and tablets.
The success of Lifeline… on iOS has taken the 3 Minute Games team by surprise! "We knew this was a good game, but we didn't expect it to be the number one paid game in the App Store. The response has been overwhelming," said Colin Liotta, Vice President and General Manager of 3 Minute Games.
3 Minute Games partnered with acclaimed writer Dave Justus (Fables: The Wolf Among Us digital comic) to bring players a gripping tale set in the aftermath of a crash landing on an alien moon. Lifeline… introduces players to Taylor, a stranded astronaut, with the task of keeping him/her alive until a rescue team arrives. Staying in communication with Taylor through notifications, players help Taylor make life or death decisions and face the consequences together in real time.
Perhaps the most exciting aspect of Lifeline… is what it means for the future of storytelling in mobile games. Colin Liotta of 3 Minute Games explains it best, "Lifeline… is interesting because it's exploring a whole new genre of storytelling where the user is communicating via notifications. The story is being told in real time and you're making choices, but you don't get to see the consequences of those choices until it actually plays out in the world of the game. Lifeline's success has proven to us that this genre is definitely worth exploring."
3 Minute Games is currently developing Lifeline… 2 for release this summer. 3 Minute Games is also working on French and German translations of Lifeline…, so more players can experience the game in their native language.
