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 3 / 5 stars


This game reminds me of "You only live once" by Raitendo, the difference is that while in his game the player's skill is what decides between victory or demise: You fail because you tried and weren't skilled enough. Yours however, is about finding one obscure solution that you have strung together at some point randomly. That's "more hardcore", "more realistic" or simply incredibly punishing for a "game" (it'll take a lot of fun away and punish the player for arbitrary decisions): You tried, you failed, "tough luck there, screw you, no more chances".

Also, the game is bugged: When you decide to turn around and go home at the car scene (after picking Molly up on a route where Penny suicides and after exiting house on last day to name some cases), this will cause the game to bring you back to an earlier point, but not reset certain triggers screwing the game up.

To everyone who insists on winning without holding the creator at gunpoint:

Solution 1: Rip flash, run a flash decompiler on it and riffle through his code if you understand any of that.
Solution 2: Open multiple tabs of this game before losing, each tab is a "life.
Solution 3: If you've already died, clear browser history and cache and you can replay.

It's just like life.

Make the wrong choice and shit hits the fan.

Anyway,i give 7 stars for the plot even though the graphic is not as good as the others.

Rated 5 / 5 stars


I think it's funny everyones complaining that you can't replay, that's the entire idea of the game, that there is one only chance! Im a little disapointed in my ending but that is how life frickin works, you can't go back
