One Chance is a game about choices and dealing with them.

Scientist John Pilgrim and his team have accidently created a pathogen that is killing all living cells on Earth.

In the last 6 remaining in-game days on Earth, the player must make choices about how to spend his last moments. Will he spend time with his family, work on a cure or go nuts?

It's a wee bit depressing.

Mind you:

Yay, nostalgia! 80s computer gaming! Or is it 70s?

The way he flings his legs apart when he walks makes me giggle.

It's an intriguing puzzle working out what the objects are supposed to be, and then why you can't do anything with 95% of them. This keeps you guessing.

It's sort of fun that he is imprisoned in his lonely head, and has has no tongue in the head, or indded, any way of communicating at all (sort of like an existentially abandoned goldfish slowing up). It's very time-saving that he can't or won't talk to his family, consult with anyone what's up, what needs to be done. One head is apparently better than two, or a hundred.

The fact that the few choices you can make may lead either to heaven or hell without any discernible rhyme or reason - because the author is all-knowing, and seems to want to keep it that way - is a bit of a hoot. Who needs rational thinking, or clues, when you can have random bleakness?

The hollow colleagues are also a great satire on corporate responsibility.

So it's not all bad.

I defer to other players who love it, and out of respect, give it two stars. For me, personally, it would be a big fat zerom for reasons explained ;)

the fact that this game was played by markiplier and the fact of how sad and depressing it is shows how good this game is. And whats with the hate?

I'll say this: you tried. This was a good effort, but because of the gimmick you put on this game, I have to call it a failure. There are several games that have proven to be just as depressing and heavy on choices, and they didn't restrict players to one playthrough.

To add to that, many people have found ways around the "one chance" gimmick, so it really serves no point. I've played through this game, but now I can't play it again unless I cheat the system. I refuse to cheat the system, but this also means that the game has no replay value at all. Because of one gimmick, I am forced to say that this is a game I will never come back to play again.
