PLAYING THE GAME IN LATE 2015?

Check out the news about a remake on my website!

-------

Arrow keys to control.
Space Bar to interact.

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?

RE: "Still should have a replay feature."

Nope, I don't think so.
For the game sake, yeah, it should be a Replay button there for convinience for exploring different outcomes.
For the sake of the moral of the game, there's no take 2 in life.

Still should have a replay feature.

I know everyone's been criticizing people who want a replay button,
"OH you just missed the whole point of the game!"
"You just don't get it"
Blah blah,
I still think it should have a replay function so people who don't know that they can just open up the game hosted on a different site can appreciate the work that went into the different outcomes.
I've played it about 4 times and there have been 3 very interesting outcomes so far, and there could be more!
Unfortunately some people on here won't be able to experience them.

And I didn't miss the whole point of the game, I appreciate what the designer had tried to illustrate and the message he wanted to convey.
We all only truly get one chance.

I still would have liked to have seen a replay button, even if there was only 1 ending. I still play games that only have one ending, why not?

I look forward to revisiting this game soon..
although it might have to be on joystiq or something.

like the Concept. Didn't like the lack of detail

Moral of this story is that to never give up, even told you have failed. Which I am happy about. I give the Author a 8/10 for teh concept

The whole Pathogen that destroy the world's life. This becomes further form Realistic sense. Since Thinking about this before I went to bed There is a Chance that the Pathogen is Defeated by someone or something's immunity. How it as also not Fully Tested and built to replace the Damaged Cells or Repair them. Which enrages me. There is no way that the human Race can be killed off by one Effect. It would have been cancelled out. As Well there is Life in locations that this Pathogen wouldn't be able to Reach based on Ocean Currents. The Pathogen would Break down in turn would bring life to Return on Earth millions of years in the future. Or Give a better Detail Reasoning about this pathogen.

So Storyline: 2/10
GamePlay, was poor but it could fit the course of the game. lacking a Retry and adding more choices even able to save more people would be possible. this was a 3/10

But that is my Feelings about this, great in Concept but it really need more.
