Lifestream welcomes players into the lives of the Holton family, as they uncover the mysteries of the enigmatic Lifestream. John Holton's father, a priest named Randolph, disappeared three weeks ago. Unable to come forward to voice his concerns, in fear of destroying his father's reputation, John takes it upon himself to find out what happened by visiting his father's house and searching for him firsthand. What he finds is something that is so terrifying, yet so seductive, that it envelops his very soul. [Unimatrix] Expand

  1. Its story made me want to find out more about Randolph's search, the puzzles kept me entertained and the hunt for Easter eggs had me clicking like a madwoman.
  2. This is a very good game for those who love a good story.
  3. A surprisingly moody piece about esoteric organizations and human nature that never takes itself too seriously. Brendel’s low-budget adventure game will permeate players minds and have them contemplating the existence of the Lifestream even as they shower at six a.m. in the morning.
  4. I enjoyed the 8 hours or so it took me to play, and it is another feather in the cap of independent games and what can be achieved predominantly from home. Set your sights at the right level and you should be pleased with the result.

Also, brings backTakes me back to classic text adventure games from my youth, on the Commodore 64, but with a nicer modern interface. Also, brings back memories of my attempts to create similar text based adventures in BASIC on the C64.

    A great bonus is that the game works perfectly well with a touchscreen, and I am playing through it happily on a Windows 10, 8" tablet - which makes for a great game to curl up in bed and play.

    If you too have fond memories of text based adventure games, then I think this is a worthy purchase, particularly if you have a Windows touchscreen device.
