One Chance is a game about choices and dealing with them.

Scientist John Pilgrim and his team have accidentally created a pathogen that is killing all living cells on Earth (bummer, right?).

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 do something else entirely?

You have One Chance. Remember that.


  • Diverging storyline based on your choices.
  • Multiple endings.
  • Perma-death.
  • Hilarious spelling and grammar.
  • The high possibility of a dead child.
  • Anger.

Years later, it's still worth thinking about

Ditto on possibly an upgraded version. Sounds really interesting. :)

okay but how

this game is awesom


Yeah, pretty awesome. Though, I wasn't able to save anyone...


I first played ONE CHANCE 2-3 years ago, but it seems that the version I tried had a bug which prevented the best possible outcome.

However, in this version, undertaking the exact same course of actions does lead to what seems to be the best possible outcome (of having at least 2 humans surviving beyond 6 days).

Another bug common to both versions is how the child may sometimes appear twice in the same scene, as if she suddenly has an identical twin.

By the way, the version hosted at your game website does not seem to work. It merely launches with a blank white screen, with music playing in the background.


I like turtles

same xD
