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

I made the cure.

But, I still feel I lost somehow.

What's your point?

It's an interesting theory, but I have no idea what your point is. What's the message here? I get the idea of 'never give up', but the work or die thing isn't very profound or logical.

good but.....

no replay WTF


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Good, could be better.

Nice premise. Altho I found a bug, in that if your wife takes the Molly to her mothers, and on the last day you go to the park, Molly is with you.
Also to those of you who are complaining about not being able to replay, well, there IS a directory on your computer where flash savegames are stored, and you can delete them this one if you chose to start over.
So I'll give you a 6/10, as honestly, adding in replay would be a 7.
Also, I'd like to see a few more choices.

The weight of our actions.

There are plenty of things that we all have done that we cannot go back and fix.
So yes, out of all the hundreds of games that I have played yours is the first that lacks a replay feature.


Mr. Pilgrim went to work, Mr. Pilgrim went to the rooftop to see his lab partner commit suicide, Mr. Pilgrim went to work again, and again only to see his wife dead in the bathtub. After this heartbreak Mr. Pilgrim went and took his daughter to work with him, and when all hope was lost, Mr. Pilgrim and his daughter Molly went to the snowy park to sit on a lonely bench, just the two of them together forever.


This is a great message, and perhaps something that you are very proud of. And perhaps something that has impressed many people myself included. Bravo to you.

And as for my fellow NEWGROUNDERS,

Yes, we had one chance in the game to save the world and one chance to play the game on our computers.

*******BUT if you want to avoid heartbreak like this or of ANY kind, then here is a CHANCE to do YOURSELF a favor.

********DON'T PLAY THE GAME****************************
