"In the middle of the life" is too vague and doesn't mean the same thing, correct me if I am wrong, and "at the midpoint of your life" (after 20 years if you are going to live until 40) doesn't sound very idiomatic, so how would you say it?

For example:

____, a counter appears telling you how much time you have left to live in this strange fictional world.

That's probably the most general sort of phrase for it that I would use, though there are many different options available.
