The first moments of the first Lifeline game.

The games usually puts the player into a supportive character role to help the main character with making decisions. While the player usually controls the flow of the story, main characters will sometimes refuse to listen to the player's advice and go off on their own. The player will be communicating with the characters with some sort of communicator, with Alex Esposito and Arika Lanphear using alternative kinds of communicators (Alex uses a phone and Arika uses telepathic communication).

Usually, in the games the main character is in trouble and he/she needs your help to get out of it. While most games have one "True" ending, a lot of choices will lead to the main character dying. After you find one of the endings, the game will unlock the Rewind and Fast Mode options. Rewind allows the player to rewind to a player-made choice, rewinding the whole game up to that point. Fast Mode allows the player to skip the waiting times between messages.

The game features a real-time waiting system betweenmessages. The main character will write messages and complete activities at a human pace (walking, driving, sleeping, etc.). The main character will close communications until something happens during the task or until they finish the task. The waiting time on tasks can be from under a minute to over 8 hours.
