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?

I've played games somewhere along the lines of this, where they hold stronger meaning than they do gameplay.

It's a great game within it's means and the questions that it leaves behind are all part of the experience, but I wish to throw something out there:

Having worked to the very end, and having come up with the cure, you administer the cure to yourself, and your daughter, seeing as how the world was in such destruction on the last day only tells me that there wasn't much life (if any other than the character himself and his daughter) left.
Would this mean he'd have to participate in procreation with his own daughter when she comes of age? It's a tad disturbing but looking at the condition of 'his world' that's what it'd have to come down to in the end seeing as how it looked
like he'd only saved himself and his daughter...

Great game though, I enjoyed it for the most part.

Heart breaking.

This game really moved me. The world think that you've cured cancer, when really, you accidently created a virus that kills every living cell in everyting.
Since my moral is to never give up and to save whatever can be saved, I tried my best to find a cure for this, ignoring skipping work, ignoring the offers that my co-workers gave me, and never to let personal feelings get in my way to save humanity.
So here I am. Sitting alone in the park, with my alive daughter. Cured from the disease.
But I did it! I cured the disease, and saved whatever can be saved!

I rate 7/10 because I can't cure. And I found his wife in a friggin pool of blood! Is that because he cheated, or because she was gonna die anyway? And, his daughter was like clinging to him.. and he couldn't find a cure.. so yeah. Good game, sad, but good.

AwkwardSilenceGames responds:

Sounds a little like you resent this game because I didn't base the character around you...

However, thank you for the kind words.
