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?



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


I love this game, I really do. But if you choose to take molly to work with you both days after your wife's commited suicide, on the very last day there is one molly on the work floor and one on your back, the one on your back dissappears after you move. WTF?!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great game. My ending was sad though.
I slept with that woman but the next day my wife was dead. I took Molly to the park and she died peacefully. Then on the last day I jumped off the building.

Spoilers & Info :]

Let's start: A scientist and his helpers develop a "cure" for cancer, but apparently its a deadly pathogen that kills every living thing on the Earth. Umm...who thought of unleashing the gas on the whole world? I mean, test it in glass case with a little plant inside? Or on a human with cancer? Not just set it free without having people approve of it first.

Okay, the first day, everything is happy, and you have the choice of going out and drinking, or going to work (not sure why go to work when you don't know if the "cure" is deadly or not?). There appears to be a glitch that when you go back to work, you are trapped in the room where the co-workers ask you to go out for a drink. Umm, why? What if I wanted to you choose to work, you are on the right track to finding the cure. If you go out to drink, consider the cure gone). Moving on...the second day, you see in the newspaper that the "cure" is deadly. You go to work, but can't enter the lab, only to find you're fellow co-worker, Matthew, commit suicide by jumping off the roof. Third Day, you're wife Penny, asks if its really necessary for you to go work. You check the newspaper, and it says "The End is Nigh". First signs of life dying are plants. Not sure why plants first, but okay, moving on. You go to work and your only choice is to go the roof. Why the roof all the time? And I'd much appreciate it if the character could at least walk faster... Anyways, your boss tells you, you can either stay and work, or go home to your family. **Here is where you start making the real big choices which determine your ending, all walkthroughs will be listed below**

Ok, if you decide to go home (which won't give you the cure, but instead the last days with your family), go ahead. Remember the next day, you have the same choice, and if you choose to stay home, your wife, I believe, offers you sex? Or just a day with the family? Which I suppose, the answer is the 2nd choice. If you go to work after spending 2 days with your family (which you have to), Jim comes in and kills you. (End of game)

If you stay home with your family, and go to work the next day, Annie, offers you sex. You could go with her, and find that you're wife and child leave to stay with you're wife's mother when you come back home. The rest of the days from then on, is you're family gone, and you left to find the cure (which can't happen, since you didn't work for the required amount). Basically, what Im trying to say is, you die. (End of game)

If you work both days (still finding the correct cure), you find your wife in the bathtub (obviously, she's committed suicide). Why though? Didn't she want to die with her family? Stay alive as long as she possibly can? And just for those who wanted to know, the song playing is "Tautou" by a band named Brand New. For the remaining days, you can spend it with your daughter Molly (or on the first day, take her to the park, and she will die peacefully). If you take her to work for the remaining days, you will find the cure :] And guys, no, she did not die by you're side. He simply gave her the cure (Proof? Her skin is back to normal, I did screenshots to compare the tones, and she is alive, just sleeping). (End of game)

*There is NO ending where John finds the cure, and everyone lives*

**If you would like to reset the game, first right-click on the game screen. Select "Settings" and click the 3rd option (out of the 5), which looks like a file folder. Take the little arrow, and move it all the way to the left (to put it on 0). This will save none of the endings. Again, if you want to leave it on a ending you're happy with, just bring the arrow back to the middle.**

On the last two days, even if the girl is dead, she remains on John's back just for a second.
Also, when you want to enter another room, sometimes you go off the screen into an endless zone (Obviously saying, you can't go that way).
On the 3rd to last day, when you stay home, the child is mysteriously gone the following day. The next day, both Penny and Molly are gone. Uhh...why?
