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?

How can I put this....

I say, my hat's off to you, good sir.

This experience was quite jarring to the mind and body, and really, it shows how user input affects the outcome of the entire story.
Normally, I was thinking of just working my ass off to find some cure, but it was hard seeing how John struggled with both.

I teared up when Molly said she didn't feel so good, because I knew she was next to die. That was there was an active tug at the heartstrings.

With no other way of actively figuring out what to do on the last day, I jumped. I know, I gave up quite easily.

You deserve a score of 10, maybe higher.
Even though I wish I could replay it again, I feel like my decision was actually final and that there was no turning back at all. This decision makes the game unlike a game, but indeed like the final days of someone's life, where there are no resets or 1-ups, just an inevitable Game Over.

Awesome game dude, it makes you think about what are you doing in life, just awsome

By the way, does anybody knows what is the song when the wife dies?

The game has 4 Endings, you can't save everyone but that's why it's a decision based game, so you're bound to carry with the consequences of your choices, anyways, for those curious, the endings are:

- Your wife commits suicide in the bathroom at day 4th if you choose to go to work, if you go to work the two following days you'll find a cure, this cure will pressumably save you, your daughter and the rest of human population that was still alive. [This was the first ending i got personally]

- If you cheat on your wife on day 4th, she'll take your daughter and left you the following day, no matter what you do from here you'll still die.

- If you spend the 4th day with your family the following day the guy that was smoking a cigarrette the first day will try to stab you, if he succeds you'll die and the game ends, if you press space when he gets close you'll take knife from him and he'll run out of the office, then when you get back home both your daughter and wife will be dead and the guy mentioned before will had hang himself in your room, from here no matters what you do you'll still die.

You can choose to die in the lab trying to find the cure, jump out the roof and commit suicide or accepting your fate and calmly going out while sitting in the park.

If any of you wants to restart the game to try out these endings, you can right click on the game, press settings to go to the flash plugin configuration, then press the folder button and moving the slider all the way to the left until it says "none", but beware that is cheating the game and that means that your choices don't got any impact then.
