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?

Damn, you weren't joking.

You delivered the message perfectly. I finished the game, thoroughly enjoyed it, and wanted to go back and try a different set of decisions. But you made it so that I had to live with my initial decisions, god damn it. I now wonder if I made the right ones, if I could have done anything better, if I did what I really wanted. You've done something absolutely fantastic.

I almost grew sick of these "deep" games with all the duds that have come out recently. Thanks for this morbid breath of fresh air, even if I could only have it just once.

Good

It was a good game. It would be nice if there was a way to save the wife and daughter, as well as the world. Still good though.

Excellent.

It was a surprisingly deep game for being pixelated... Not exactly sure how people can pull that off.

Because of that, I couldn't bring myself to replay it, even though I wanted to, I realized that I'd just pick the same things again. :(
Ah, sacrifice...

And you lose one point because you called me a bastard, you bastard.

Spent more time writing the review than playing...

...and that's a wonderful thing. Great work. It's an interesting twist to have a game with multiple plot threads and no (legit) way to go back to the start. Honestly, I played the game once and feel as if I fully experienced it. Now, instead of just going back and figuring out how the puzzle fits together, I get to consider how things might have been. Could I have saved my wife? Should I have boinked my lab assistant? Was it all worth it, in the end? Far more interesting and provocative for this extreme limitation. I'm just sorry more people didn't really get it. Full marks from this corner.
