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?

A credit to the medium

I won't be a faggot and point out similarities between this and other games, accusing you of rehashing like other users whose names might rhyme with LightRiku. If anything, this gives credence to pixel games with very non-retro ideas. The only complaint I could have would be the length, but that is in no way a big deal.
The "Only once chance" technique, while "cheatable", expresses a unique connection to the game and the situation itself.

I enjoyed this thoroughly, and that's it.

Interesting concept...

Well look here folks everyone is so annoyed at the fact you only get one chance and looking past the artistic quality of this submission, but if that's such a big deal here's a little advice

1) on day one you can either skip work or not, working for the first four days means jim doesnt try to kill you but your wife feels neglected and kills herself
2) on day two you HAVE to watch that guy jump off the roof
3) on day three you can choose to go home or work, if you go home a guy tries to kill you and if you defend he goes to your home and kills your family...Then with your family dead you don't have the drive to make a cure...
4) on day four you can either work, return home, or sleep with annie
-your wife leaves you and takes your daughter if you sleep with annie.
-if you do not work you don't know about the breakthrough = no cure.
5) on day five you can work or die eventually if you run into jim.
6) on day six you can work or go to the park to die in the pretty snow.

That said technically you don't save the world unless you plan on spawning a new world with your daughter

pretty glitchy

good concept. but the first time i played i noticed when you're on the roof, before you talk to the man about to jump off the building, if you walk left there is no wall. you just keep walking...
and now after talking to the man who says he's not gonna jump i decided to go to the screen to see if that lady was there and she wasn't. so i checked the last room (by the enterance) nothing. so i went back to try and work, the door was locked. i went to leave and i couldn't... i'm literally stuck so this is where i stop

This game was really different, but don't have the ability to play it another time really is bad, even though it makes sense... I saved the daughter and him, but it's really hard to know, if that was the right thing to do...

I beg you, make a replay feature...
