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?

No, I don't really care for it

I usually appreciate 'art' games, one with deep meaning and one that is actually thought provoking.
I didn't find it in this one. It was a bit.. predictable.. it was very predictable. I found myself rolling my eyes more then anything else.
I am going to bring up the replay feature, not because I want to whine about being able to play it again.. I was fine with the result I had.. but since I have played it I can't share it with anyone else in my house.. some I would have liked to. So what you did to try to make it seem more meaningful ends up limiting you in it being shared.
You can keep this game in your 'cold dead hands' and you can return the time I wasted playing it.

Scary Game - Because It Has Cancer In It


Okay,so i started the game,i doubt i will actually get a good ending,but i actually had a good ending,I just gotta get a cure by working all day.

Okay,so in about the 4th day my wife died,that was very shocking,so i brought my daughter and find a cure.In work,everyone just....Died,did they went suicide or something??

On the 6th day,i was walking very slow and very greenish,so i got sick,my daughter was sick as well,and i just kept working,not-very-predictable,i found the cure,cured myself and my daughter,and...Survived,so we went to the park,and...the song kept...Going?

Okay,so only me and my daughter survived,and now we're gonna reproduce with about....15 children?

Okay,so FIRST,IF YOU HAVE SCARED THIS MIGHT HAPPEN: No,verrrrrry unlikely,you CANNOT inject a gas to a body,but you can inhale it,but if you inhale this 'cure' then it will go to your lungs,and breathe it out,let your lung cells clean it,and that's not gonna help at all.And they say the cure is deadly gas,ok,so it kills all living cells,so if you inhale it,the gas will destroy your lung cells,so you'll die in about...2 hours?

We can ONLY be injected with liquid,not gas,we can INHALE gas,like smoke,but i don't think that can be a cure.

Seems to me everyone was mentally stupid and they were like,"OH NOES ITS THE END OF THE WORLD!!" and they killed themselves,luckily my daughter didin't know what's happening,so she didn't kill herself.

HOW TO GET THE GOOD ENDING: You CANNOT replay by deleting your cookies,i put in "Never accept cookies" but when i restarted it i only saw trees,im guessing you have to delete all your history,cookies,and storage.Back to subject,it's quite simple actually,just work no matter what,you might experience some freaky and scary things,like your wife dead in a bath tub,JUST go to WORK EVERYDAY,even on the last day,starting from the first day,to the last day.Ya know,i would like to bring my family to work,so i can spend time with my family and work as well,the cure was a small device thing,and and a needle,injected myself and injected my daughter,we then went to the park and just...Sat there.


The Bad:

Sticky Controls -1
You Can Only Play Once -1

The Good:

Pretty Pixel Graphics +1
Really Gets You Into The Story +3
Teaches You A Lesson +3
Interacting Can Lead You To Choices +1



This game reminds me of "You Can Only Live Once" with the 'only one chance' concept and "Everyday The Same Dream" with the familar art and story concept.

I DO NOT recommend this game for people who have seizure,easily scared,and have nightmares,this is a pretty scary game,but if you get the good ending,you'll be VERY relieved,this is how you get the good ending....WORK EVERYDAY NO MATTER WHAT.

No Prob! ^-^

Also,that was advise,i'm just telling you incase you get lost,because you EASILY get lost in the game.

Welp,that's my review for "One Chance"!

Also,the rating is....Abit over-rated,put that in Teens.
