There's a problem with branching paths and moral decisions in videogames: even if they are meaningful (few are), players can usually bypass the system by using multiple save files or other means to go in for another attempt and a different outcome.

While the same is still true for the online flash title One Chance, more work has been put in place to prevent you from "cheating." It's one of those games that doesn't try to be fun, but that's not to say the experience isn't entertaining. In six days, all life on Earth will cease to exist. It's up to you how to spend that time.

I recommend giving it a play. You'd be surprised how tense a game with this aesthetic can be. I'd also like to hear which conclusion you reached, since I'm not entirely sure how many possible outcomes there are.

[Thanks, Matt]

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
