Sometimes, Flash-based games catch our collective attention thanks to an innovation so simple it's puzzling that it took a designer so long to put it into practice. That's the case with Awkward Silence Games' One Chance, a simple, side-scrolling adventure title that puts you in the shoes of Dr. Pilgrim. The good doctor has invented a cure for cancer that -- oops! -- will kill every living thing on Earth in six days.

Here's the twist: After you beat the game, you're stuck with the ending you get on your first playthrough (so long as you play along with the limitations of the platform and don't go deleting your browser cache). You don't get a second chance. Hence the name.
What happens to you?

Also, for anyone who wants to play it again, incognito mode on Google Chrome worked for me.

Also, for anyone who wants to play it again, incognito mode on Google Chrome worked for me.That completely negates the point of the game though. The game isn't supposed to have replay value, nor be any sense of "puzzle", it's simply meant to show you that there are consequences for your actions.

I wish we could make a boundary to how far "art" games can go before they aren't actually games.

I logged on to newgrounds today to have some fun but instead got a "game" that consisted of holding down the Right button and dealing with "consequences" that are not of my control in the game and frankly aren't even coherent to the choices that I made.

Its almost like you just wan't us to play this "game" so you can impose an impossible chance of winning or success to spew a message that I don't even rightly understand.

On the bright side, you saved me the trouble of not having to play it again by not having that replay button thing.

try a little harder next time.
pretty much agreed.

i just thought it was pretty BS that after you go to the roof once, youre *censored.3.0*ed for the rest of the game. and it's just *censored.2.0* to play. but i guess it isn't really supposed to be a game.. right? :/

oh well.

So Alfred, shut your ass.

I never understood the term "Shut your ass". If you said Shut your mouth then they can't talk anymore. When you say shut your ass... Well, i'm not sure how that would work, or make someone quit talking.

But then, this is the internet, you don't really talk with your mouth.

oh well.I don't agree. It was a simplistic game but it was still a game.

technically you could make a game that was more like a movie just by adding in quicktime events.

I scored on the third to last day, than came home to a dead wife. Does the wife die no matter what? Also, is there a way to find a cure?

Yes there is, just work in the lab every single day and on the last day you'll find the cure.

there's a fine line between interactive movie and video game.. but to each their own, i guess.
