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?

This game...

The day I played this game, I started feeling the symptoms of Chronic Bronchitis. Chronic Bronchitis is an incurable disease in which you cough nonstop practically for the rest of your life. The symptoms didn't come immediately, I played the game and some hours later, I started to cough non-stop. This began in early december, when the game was on the frontpage of newgrounds, and I still have it as of today (Feb 20th, 2011). I will never forget this game, it was the one with the heaviest impact on my life, playing it the very same day I get an incureable disease. I'm not afraid to say that, suicide would be the only option, but I'll hope that it isn't and fight against this pain. I got this from my dad, who smokes 24+ cigarettes a day w/o caring about his family/being an alcoholic. My life sucks.

Best Regards - J.S

Enjoyable. Makes you think.

I really did like this game. But I felt like there wasn't enough choice. I would've wanted my family to come with me every day. I wanted to talk to my wife and child. But there wasn't an option for it. Very this or that, and I feel life has so many choices a game like this can't cap that. But you did an okay job. Maybe a sequel of some kind which improves on the ideas from this game.

I'd suggest saving the first ending. So if people shared the game it posted what they did the first time. But allow us to see the consequences if we had chosen other wise. Like a ghost form, split screen or something. Anyway, nice attempt on the human psyche.

Very amazing game.

I've played a game very similar to this... but it let me continue after making my choice...

What do I think?

I think this a really neat game. The first time I played, I thaught ''Wow, after I'm done doing what I would do in a situation like this, I will try to save the world!'' Well, after I found out what the title meant, I felt... irretated.

But after a few moments, I understood. The game itself gives you ONE CHANCE, and it shows you what you would have done in a situation like this. It's like real life: you don't have a back button, you must move on to the choices you made.

Plus, the drawings were simple, yet creative and elegant... well, exept from the cars, but I don't really care about them.

Oh, and the music really gives you an ambiance!

Now, for the people who says that ''WTF I CAN DELETE MY COOKIES YOU SHOUL CAL THIS DELETE YOUR COOKIES TO SAV WORLD!!!!111'' Well, yeah, you can delete your cookies to restart the game. But how fun would that be? The first time you played was great: you feel bad about the choices you made, and after you finished the game, your thinking about the ending.

BUT, if you just restart, you lose the whole point of the game! If anyb ody else noticed (I hope I'm right), the game is about...

...what would you do in this situation?

Oh, and I'm giving this a 9 because... well, I sure you heard about this before, but there are some glitches in the game. I think someone got a weird ending because he made a choice that no one ever made before...

Anyway, great game!
