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?

probably one of my favourite games on this site and the whole nature of only being able to only play it once is fantastic. and honestly kind of depressing but hey that's not a bad thing sometimes we need to see horrible situations to understand how good we have it. you know aside from the whole cancer cure thing but that also may be a good thing considering the story. all in all its a well rounded experience.

Warning: Spoilers Ahead!

Surprised I haven't heard of this sooner. It was realistic and emotional.
It also doesn't hold back its punches. It eats away at your hope as the story goes on and seems like there isn't hope. That you should give up. On the last day, I was really tempted to take Molly to the park, believing that all hope was lost. Yet, I stuck to my guns and continued to work. I nearly jumped out of my seat in joy seeing that green check mark.

Overall, its a classic.

A classic.

I had a great time playing it.

God, this game...
Im usually not that impacted by sentimental games. Heck, mostly i just laugh them off. But this? It gave me a feeling of pain and despair in my heart when i played it a few minutes ago that still didin't leave me as i am typing this. The fact that everything that happened, from the death of your fellow scientists to the suicide of your own wife happened because of the player is just heartwrecking. I decided to check as many places as i could when playing, and to see that in the last day, if you got to the roof of the lab there was an option named "give up"... it gave me the chills.
