PLAYING THE GAME IN LATE 2015?

Check out the news about a remake on my website!

-------

Arrow keys to control.
Space Bar to interact.

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?

How to play again easily

I liked the game and can see why the author wants to stop people playing again.

However, if you want to see all the endings, just use chrome in "Incognito mode" and it'll load fully again. ctrl+shift+n

Oh god....That was mesmerizing

I have never cried so hard in my entire life. The minute my wife and kid died i just straight up bawled. This was a powerful, motivational game. and if this was a movie, it would be oscar worthy.

Fantastic

Great game. It was truly moving. The music felt very appropriate and the animation, while simple, was effective (especially the gradual decay of the land, the slowness in moving, etc). Additionally, I actually like the finality of it...

... Though, oddly enough, it seems as though the game reset itself on its own. I first played very soon after it came out, and clicked expecting my ending to show up. Instead, I was able to start over. I've since been using the trick of going to the settings menu to satisfy my curiosity of the different endings, but I don't know why I got the first "second" chance.

In any case, the ambiance and story of the game are great. The ultimate decision to fight for what seems to be an increasingly impossible (but maybe not) cure, as opposed to trying to enjoy the little life you have left is powerful, and dealing with the consequences of that choice gives the game power. Great work, and I look forward to seeing what you do in the future.
