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?

The deepest game there ever will be.

On the first day, I just went into work, do find my friends wanting to skip. I did, then went home afterwards. The next day, my wife tells me that the phone has been ringing for me, and the paper tells me why. I go into work, stand on the roof, only to see my coworker fall. On the third day, I started going to the lab at my coworkers request. I come home to find my wife dead. The next days I deny my daughter any time together, in a desperate attempt to find the cure. In the end, she dies leaning against the walls of my office, and I soon join her.

This game touched me in many ways. The one chance mechanic was very effective at making the point that life has no reset button. Although I am curious to see if it is even possible to "Win" the game by saving the world. Curiosity like this further cements the emotional impact of this game.

On the mechanical side, I often missed chances I found in previous comments, as there was a definite lack of instruction and what triggers what.

Overal score:
This is the greatest game I will ever play.
Even after only 5 minutes, I feel I need to start loving my friends and family more than ever.
I hope that this game will inspire many others in the way it did me.

Letter to the author: Get into philosophy and tell the rest of the world. It just might prevent something like this happening.

Amazing, Fucking Amazing.

This game brought me to tears, as I betrayed my wife with the Girl who ask you to Have a drink, and Fuck in her car.I then went to work, everyday mostly. After sitting my dead daughter's body down, I came to tear's as I finally sat down, in my laboratory. Dead. Gone. Lifeless.

Overall, this game is an Inspiration to life. Showing how, you only have ONE chance to do what you want to do in life, Whether it's work, fuck, party, etc etc etc.
Its your life, and you have only ONE CHANCE.
