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 0.5 / 5 stars


I pretty much did the work option every time because it would be the only way to fix things. However in the end I only seemed to save myself and my daughter without any furthur explanations beyond that. Did I save the world? Did everyone but me and my daughter die? I'm also confused as to why people would kill themselves (like my wife). There's no reason to kill yourself.

It's a decent game that makes you think, but I gave it 1 out of 10 because I refuse to support poor design decisions. And that decision was making it unable for people to replay the game. Although, if people want to replay the game just clear your browser's cache and you can. So really there's no point in trying to restrict people from playing. Bad design decision is bad.

I respected this review up until "Bad design decision is bad."

How does injecting oneself save all other living cells that haven't already died?

What a beautiful game


Rated 5 / 5 stars


I really am so impressed by this game. It has resonated with me emotionally in a way no other game, and perhaps even nothing in any medium, has.
I keep coming back and pressing play to see the ending I got. When playing it, the little things about the small but perfectly-formed game world hit me. Clearly you've put a lot of attention into every detail. I'm trying to avoid spoilers in the review, but the specific language at the start of every day really got to me. The multiple readings of the same words had me welling up. A seriously incredible game that really shows what games can be as an art form.
