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?

Looks like I really had only one chance. Should read descriptions next time, I managed to achieve the crappiest ending. "I will play it again, and spend more time with my family!" Well, looks like that's not going to happen. Good game tho'

Twas alright, i think the idea of subtracting the ability to replay the game just to leave the idea that you wouldnt be able to go back and try again if this were to happen happen in real life burned into your mind was someone cool, but also somewhat utterly retarded as well. Sure it seemed somewhat artistic, but it also seemed like a real good excuse for you to half-ass the entire game and its variety of endings because you knew that a majority of people would only play through it once anyway. You're not the first to do something like this either. However, ROFL at your attempt to make it non-replayable. I just right-clicked, went to settings, set my "local storage" to 0kb and tadaaaaa. I replayed it one more time to get a different ending out of curiosity. The game was still alright though.

For a game about your last moments...

for a game about your last moments, it sure doesn't let a lot happen...this guy never says anything or does anything. I ended up with my dead daughter in the park after I missed my wife's dying scene wile trying to work on a cure.

Knowing that you have six days to live, I think I would do some more things besides go to work. Take your family out somewhere important, and spend your last moments erecting a monument that will hopefully last the ages, saying "I was here."

Also, when I'm giving my daughter a piggyback ride, she didn't appear in the mirror. Might be some significance to that, but I think it was an oversight. I'm not a big fan of this kind of art style.

On the plus side, music was great, really sets the mood.

-2 low interactivity, -2 art style, +3 music +1 creativity with the whole 1 playthrough thing. 5/10

good game, once you find out how to replay!!!

has a great moral to it and helps you look at and put your life in perspective. at first I was ticked off that I couldnt replay it, then I figured out how to pry it from your cold dead hands. firefox has an option called private browsing that does not access the cache so once enabled you can replay to your hearts desire.

I hate you-...

I freakin' hate you... I did nothing all the way to see how crappy it would've been, like if you would try to put in a moral at the end but no... im just sitting alone, dead on a bench... O.o Really i would've at least written a little phrase to make the player think about losing one opportunity no matter how unimportant it may seem... Just making ppl think about never being able to experience something again... unless going through alternate measures such as getting to another computer... meh... Overall I thought it was a bit lame, i'd say you made this out of free time and a bit of depression and convinction in mind, don't worry it's not a bad remark. Philosophical yes, amusing... not really... But still I have to respect someone who would make such a game... ^^
