Aurora, Illinois, April 25, 2016: Lifestream, a haunting text adventure by independent developer Unimatrix Productions that aims to revolutionize interactive fiction, is now available for purchase on the PC, iOS®, and Android™.
In Lifestream, players take on the roles of Catholic priest Randolph Holton and his son, John, in their search for an enigmatic realm known only as “the Lifestream.” The game combines classic room-based explorative text game mechanics with a stylish graphical interface and plenty of bells and whistles like pictures and sound. At its core, however, Lifestream remains true to the essence of classic interactive fiction.
