Quest Game on a Rift S?

Can you play a Quest game on a Oculus Rift S?
I found something called The Line and it says it works for the Quest but I am wondering if it will play on a Oculus Rift S.
Please understand I do not even have my Rift yet, I own a Vive and I just ordered my first Oculus and I picked the Rift S.
I am just trying to find content for it that will work so I can do a little shopping when it arrives.
Also, Does a new headset come with any VR content?
Any Reply's are most welcome

    No, Quest games are mobile VR and cannot play on any dedicated PCVR headsets like your Vive or Rift S.  I would not go too crazy buying stuff for your Rift S until to actually get it and get it running.  However, during the Steam Summer sale (now till ~9 July) it may be worth picking up a few bargains.  Just make sure they are Oculus Rift compatible (most are now days).

    SideQuest allows you to install non-store Quest apps onto your Quest. It does not in any way allow you to play Quest games on a Rift. 

    Quest apps are compiled for Android, and don’t play on a PC. That said, the title that OP was interested in, The Line, has a PC version which is available on Oculus and Steam.
