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?



Rated 5 / 5 stars

A life of hell it is.

I realised the folly of saving the world almost imediatly, but the thought of saving as many as I can drove me onwards and against the family. I was rewarded with a life of solitude and lonliness. A true hell.

A brilliant game, pretty damn moving and really makes you think, why did I make the obviously wrong choice, despite knowing it couldn't possibly work out. Hope is a bad thing here.

How can I put this....

I say, my hat's off to you, good sir.

This experience was quite jarring to the mind and body, and really, it shows how user input affects the outcome of the entire story.
Normally, I was thinking of just working my ass off to find some cure, but it was hard seeing how John struggled with both.

I teared up when Molly said she didn't feel so good, because I knew she was next to die. That was there was an active tug at the heartstrings.

With no other way of actively figuring out what to do on the last day, I jumped. I know, I gave up quite easily.

You deserve a score of 10, maybe higher.
Even though I wish I could replay it again, I feel like my decision was actually final and that there was no turning back at all. This decision makes the game unlike a game, but indeed like the final days of someone's life, where there are no resets or 1-ups, just an inevitable Game Over.

Human Nature at it's best.

I've replayed this game many times. Disturbed to find out there is no happy ending, but in all reality when is there? This game has made me think of how similar I would react in the same scenario. Focused mainly on finding a cure, I sacrificed my last days with my family. With only my daughter left I was for certain I would find the cure and save her.. but I was too late. I decided to play the game again and decided that my last day on earth would be spent with Molly in the park. At least giving me a sentimental ending.

one problem (its safe to read this, no spoilers)

wow. mindblowing. id like to say that i had one chance, but alas, sadly, i did not. a very common glitch found its way into this game (the guy walks in one direction without stopping). so, on the second day, i accidentally walked into my coworker, and the day ended. also, on the third day, when i had the chance to either go to work or spend time with my family, for some reason when i walked by the door to the lab it automatically went work, so another day i didnt choose what i did. (i was probably going to go to work anyway, but i feel kinda weird because i didnt get to choose what i did, and im thinking, if i had time to think about it, would i have gone to work? this glitch also is what made me choose to take my daughter to the park instead of to the lab, because i felt that i had missed out on my chance to be with my family in the beggining, and im going to spend my last day with my daughter, dammit) a good game altogether, though, and who said life was fair? it was my choice to spend my last day with my daughter instead of working, and yes, maybe if those glitches had'nt happend i would not have done that, but if someone gets cancer in your life and that affects the choices you make is it really so different?

problems aside, it would be purely trollish to say the this sucks. 5/5 9.9999999/10

oh and, anyone here ever play 'everyday same dream'? its the same style with similar story, but instead of not having enough time you have too much time. if you like this game, look that up on
