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 2.5 / 5 stars


I really did like this game. But I felt like there wasn't enough choice. I would've wanted my family to come with me every day. I wanted to talk to my wife and child. But there wasn't an option for it. Very this or that, and I feel life has so many choices a game like this can't cap that. But you did an okay job.

I'd suggest saving the first ending. So if people shared the game it posted what they did the first time. But allow us to see the consequences if we had chosen other wise. Like a ghost form, split screen or something. Anyway, nice attempt on the human psyche.

Ok, but could've been awesome

And I'm not even speaking of the no replay thing. It's utterly easy to replay it any time, that is if one is intelligent. If not, well have fun with never playing it again.

The game itself went in the right direction, just not far enough. The story should've been deeper.

Also one thing I noticed after taking the right way, you'll end up with your daughter in the rotten park, if you open up the game at a later point again they'll be gone and the park will be back to it'd former green color. Nice thing.

In conclusion far away from awesome but still ok for wasting a few minutes.

Was really good, until..

I'm gonna jump on the bandwagon here, and agree with everyone else. The idea is wonderful, and I enjoyed playing, but the whole one chance thing kinda ruins it. I understand the suspense and gravity it adds to the game, but it's annoying as hell. And how are we supposed to thoroughly enjoy the entire game when we cant even explore it?

As such, the game is only half as good as it could have been in my opinion, and recieves only half the rating it could have gotten.

On the fence

I get it, but it's kind of stupid. It's a game and naturally people are going to want to play it as a game....people don't want a lesson in living with your decisions when you come to a site like this. I can see both sides- I can see the "art" of it and I can see the annoyance in it as well. I typically click to X out of these story games, but this one caught my attention, so I will at least give it that. Also, I may be a slow kid, but a few of the things in the game (deaths, to be more specific) were not that clear to me.

The game had a great concept, great art, and a good message, but it was thoroughly lacking in story development. It's true that it's just supposed to make us think, but this game is suckling off of the end of the world tit that a lot are.
Like I said, great game, great execution, great story,
but overall idea is just copypasta.
