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?

Not too good

First off; moving around was far too slow; I found myself annoyed at having to just hold the right button and waiting endlessly to end up where I was railroaded.

What choices are there by the way? We're not talking about YEARS of working, 6 days to either run your life into the dirt before the end, be with your family and everybody including your family die, or work on a cure so you guys can live on happily (except that last one won't happen since your wife kills herself in the working route)

Though then again; working hard nonstop gives you the cure on the last day; so logically spending even one day not working means all life on earth is doomed unless the game decided to screw logic and make the cure available on the last day no matter what. I can't test that though as the entire point of games with multiple endings; replay, is not just not available easily; but is deliberately disabled.

That last thing reminds me of an old Sierra game, in which you run a flight simulator; but if you crash, the game erases it's self and formats the disk (because if you crash a real plane you die). Let me tell you; it didn't go over well then either.

Replay!

I get what you were going for, how you really only have one chance in life, but that's why we play games; to get away from real life. I would have given it a 10 if it had replay. Oh well.

It made me think of life, but I didn't really get to do much. And walking everywhere was a little... Annoying. I liked it.
Spoiler:

Also, I rode away with Annie. Aaaaand... My wife was dead. FML

Great game but

I wish there were more choices to what you can do. To me, it seems that the only choices are screw work or spend time with the family. I wish there were more endings or choices involved. Other than that, solid game.
