one-chance-3One Chance is an 8 bit game with a purpose that goes farther than just having fun. You’re a scientist by the name of John Pilgrim and you have just cured cancer or so you think… in all reality you created a virus that is killing every single living cell on earth. You have six days, many options but only one chance. What are you going to do?

So sit up –or don’t- and give “One Chance” a try.

Hi I'm Ari. I Love a lot of things expanding from writing/reading poetry, listening to music, watching movies, to occasionally throwing it down on the basketball court. I could go on to write a novel but I'll save you guys the time/agony and just let you see what I'm all about on my twitter @Jacob_Pooh.
