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?

Well, I deleted my flash memory so I could try again because I didn't mean to get stabbed the first time. But I'm unsatisfied because I have no idea if the ending I got was one of the better ones or the worse ones. It just doesn't tell you anything about it.

I Think I Died

I played the game for about 30 seconds and feel asleep in the game. I think I died.

Anyway, I don't feel like it is very clear what you are supposed to do in the game. It's so vague to be honest. I know the point is not to replay because if this happened in real life we would only have one chance. However, a replay feature would be a little nice.

Otherwise, I liked the graphics and music.

It's Okay

It's a good game. BUT PUT IN A REPLAY FEATURE. It would of been 9/10 if there was a replay button

Good if you want this sort of thing.

For a more 'artsy' statement, this one was pretty good. Depressing to an extent, with a message to give out. However, know that this is NOT a game! Another example of a game like this (where you only get one chance) was considered a game, but with one eternal life. This is more of an experience in decision making. Having to live with decisions you've made and how they affect others... All the while the world grows dark and cold, knowledge of your coming death fresh on your mind. It works on that level, for sure.

Good: The music was rather nice, especially depressing. The song that plays around the third day was good. I generally got a sense of being hopeless while I was playing. Each day a cure was growing less and less important. The real choice of family over work is a more realistic idea that some would live with in such a situation. A week left to live... What WOULD you do with the time given?

Bad: The pixel graphics, while not bad, did make it feel odd... Especially how he walked. I would have also preferred more options on what to do, especially early on. Perhaps being late for work because you spent the morning with your wife or daughter could affect some things? Or staying later in order to work on a cure for longer. That sort of thing.
And, no, you cannot restart without abusing the Flash settings. Then again, it is easy enough to do. If you want to restart the game, ask someone who knows how to fix it in such a way that you can.

I give it a solid 7 out of 10. Good for what it is, but not very long. Could still be much more if you decide to update it or make a sequel. More options for what to do would be great. Choosing between family or work (or even cheating on your wife) are good, but there are many other routes to take. Lose your family and go insane, perhaps? Or worse... Murder your family and then kill yourself to end it all... Or even chicken OUT of killing yourself after the deed is done.

To everyone giving this game low scores for the inability to restart... That is not totally fair. The message was that you live with your choices, no matter how much you want to restart. I DO agree that the ability to restart would make it a bit better, as you grow curious as to other decisions, but that is just not how it works. The creator gets final say on how his game works. You have to live with it.
