PLAYING THE GAME IN LATE 2015?
Check out the news about a remake on my website!

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?
Haven't written a review in years.... but this one is necessary. I also don't understand why some people are so angry over this. I think they're just upset they don't get a Replay like other games. Whatever.
My only real gripe is that the walking was a little too slow.
I personally loved that you had to live (or die) with the choices you made. Refreshing the page and seeing me and my daughter still sitting dead on the bench kind of rattled me. It's hard to make a computer game that has an actual effect on your reality. That's why this game is so creative. No matter what you do and what choices you make, you will never be able to play this game again a second time. Ever. That's it. Forever. Even long after I'm dead and buried in the ground, that image of my daughter and I on the park bench would still show up if someone bothered to go back to this game on my computer. And really.... that's kind of spooky. Haunting.
I think the best way to express this haunting feeling is that when someone in the year 2283 finds my laptop, boots it up (let's just say it'll still be working), goes to Newgrounds, and loads this game..... that image will STILL be there. It's almost like that image that keeps coming up whenever I refresh is a mark of myself, because that image contains in itself and reflects all the choices I made in this game. So when the guy from 2283 sees that image, it's like he's looking at a small part of me that has lived on even after my death.
(I realize there are ways to get around this no-Restart thing, but the idea here is clearly that you're supposed to live with the choices you've made, and that's what I'm running with.)
I've never taken this much time to think about a random game I've played online. This game goes outside the box; it's not just something you play online to kill time, but it transgresses that barrier between the internet and reality; you play it online, and once you do, you can never play it again.
You have a very interesting way of thinking about things. Don't stop. Whatever train of thought led you to create the idea for this game, keep it up. Build on it. You've taken the art/entertainment form of the internet game and turned it into something more.... meaningful, I guess. All it took was the simple removal of a Replay button, so some people might say that simplicity is why it's not a big deal... I personally think it's that simplicity which makes it so intriguing, and so what if it's simple? Sometimes simple things are a lot better than bells and whistles, which I'm glad you left out; it makes this game's point very clear. It wasn't 'fun', per se, but it's absolutely without a doubt the number one most interesting and thought-provoking game I've ever played on the internet. At the risk of sounding like a pretentious jackass, I'm a highly passionate writer and creative arts enthusiast.... and you have my admiration for this game.
For some reason I can't really explain, I don't think I'm ever going to forget this game... or the image I was left with.
i just had to check the roof
I tryed to made it...but i got curius about the roof...my colega killed him self...the rest of the time i worked...and it endet wit me and my daughter siting in the park det...WHYYYYY XD
at least i rated 10/10 5/5
I liked this game i really did, it caused me to become depressed though I saved myself and my daughter so hey it wasn't all bad. I hope you make a sequel. Games like this usually piss me off greatly but this game connected to me so there
I had one chance, it's just like that in life.
There are games that are there for fun, and this kind is more for showing some aspects of our own lives... and fun too. :)
I didn't do any partying at all, I just worked from day to day, and managed to save my daughter and myself... And I really thought it through carefully enough knowing I'm not gonna do anything else, even if I got The Other chance...
Nice game, man. Loved it.
