Father Randolph Holton was dead. Not literally, of course. But in his heart, he knew he could not live on…not after everything he had learned. Sitting at his dark oak desk in the corner of the dimly lit, cozy study, the white-haired, frail Catholic priest–even frailer of late–dipped an old quill into a container of jet-black ink and began to write…

Thus begins Lifestream, in which you’ll take on the dual roles of father and son and become involved in a supernatural mystery that spans two timeframes. The game will stand on its own and also represent the first chapter in a series of games from Unimatrix.

Lifestream promises 8+ hours of content; its 65,000 words will make it the equivalent of a full-length novel. It will feature over 150 pieces of original artwork; multiple, detailed locations; challenging puzzles and more. Constructed using the developer’s custom-made Storycentric Worlds game engine, Lifestream will support PC/Windows, iOS, Android, and HTML5.

Lifestream will be released in April 2016; a demo is currently available that will take you through the game’s prologue. Unimatrix would greatly appreciate your vote on Greenlight.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
