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?

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.

Sophmoric writing

It feels like you're trying to make a vague statement whilst having nothing interesting or original to say. There is no gameplay to actually fall back on, so what exactly have you created? A barely interactive "choose your own ending" adventure story with no sense of adventure, no meaningful decisionmaking, and no interesting or original thought.

I disagree with this game's message

(If you want a replay, just use private browsing on Firefox or clear cookies/temp folder)

On one hand, you're saying that hard work gets shit done, and that being with loved ones is one's greatest value. But on the other hand, you're saying that working hard means being a reproachful douche bag who abandons the one he loves, and that spending time with your family means being a lazy shit who could have saved the world but did nothing.

Brought me to tears...Really!

A very exelent game with a very depressing plot. I choose to spend my last day working on a cure and thought that somthing good would come out of it but I got the story of my life when the cure never came. The last day possible I spent, I went to the park with my daughter and it brought a whole crying phase when i thought, "what if tis was me"?
