PLAYING THE GAME IN LATE 2015?

Check out the news about a remake on my website!

-------

Arrow keys to control.

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?

Nothing creative

This isn't art; it's a lame excuse for a flash game in which you and others make to consider 'creative' when your not looking at what games really are.

Games are art themselves; they don't need any creative new shit put in; their creative enough as it is. Even with replay buttons or 'walking back' or subtle messages that MAKE SENSE!

One Chance is just another such game that isn't really creative as it is annoying. Like videogames; we play flash games to escape reality and UNDERSTAND the concept of a subtle game.

One Chance restricts you of your replay feature; gives you very limited choices, hardly any subtle messages and the only tragedy ever is the trauma the character endures. But There's nothing 'artsy' about this.

A real art game is a game in which you can understand the game and re-experience the consequences of our actions in the game. (Which is why we get a replay game.)

Even Heavy Rain has a replay option! And you don't get to replay unless you beaten the game and redo everything in a different pattern. There's no point made, no emotion whatsoever from the character and the story isn't dramatized.

Good game

It's impossible for you to make it so we cant replay the game. So to waste time making us delete local content / block your game from saving data on our computer for a simple replay; to enjoy your game many times over is just cruel.
Yeah, i get how its trying to be artsy and "You only have one life to live" But im sure the majority would agree, Living that one life in multiple ways to see the posibilities our actions create is more fun then going through once and leaving it at that.

You basicly took the stance of making a game thats fun to replay many times over, but removed that function so anyone without knowlage of how to work a computer cant replay.
That aside, This game was fantastic.

Cant Play It

For some reason, when I try to the play the game, I just find a hobo sitting by himself in some form of lab type place. But what I have read its a very emotional game, that forces you to make a life saving desicion.

the only way to win is to give up family?

the tone of this game is amazing, beautiful, and artistic but like the guy below me the message is kind of unclear. the only time you live in your decisions is to work every chance you get and to neglect family until your wife dies and you cant just let your daughter sit with her deceased mother at home. yes, every choice impacts your life but even spending time with your family one day causes them to die the next day. i guess the only message you can dissect from this is that when your faced with a decision where you have to choose between the greater good and you and your family no one has the right to judge you for your decision whatever it may be.
