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?

Clear your cookies or cache or whatever it is, and you should be able to play again?

While I despise the gimmick of only being able to play it once, I will say this:

I actually cared for the outcome. I was kind of cheering for John to be able to develop a cure. I was sad when I suddenly saw someone dead, moments after seeing them alive and well. The fast transition of the six days, and the huge world decay in those days made this a strong experience.

I hope I'll be able to replay it soon.

I worked every opportunity I could. I went into expecting to be able to save a lot of people, but I only ended up saving myself and Molly. Now that's powerful. When you said one chance, you really meant it. Good job.

i don't get it...

i found the cure, then went to the park and just sat there with molly (who i believe was dead?). i couldn't control or do anything. did i win? lol i love the emotional tone of this game. it gave me a much greater sense of sadness than i expected... but i don't understand if i won or not. perhaps it was a bug? :/
