One Chance follows the scientist Dr. John Pilgrim and the unfortunate news that the cure for cancer that they created, turned to be "deadly".
So, as Dr. Pilgrim, what would you do in your last 6 days on earth?
Well, we're here to prevent the mass extinction so we're going to create an antidote to that "deadly" cure.
Immediately out of the gate, I need to go through the prerequisites, this is a modified flash file.
It is modified due to the non-deterministic loading thanks to the Newgrounds API.
You cannot nuke the internet, as that will result in a longer load in Ruffle comparatively to flash which loads the title instantly.
So how does one remove things and what's removed?
Firstly you need JPEXS Free Flash Decompiler. After grabbing a clean version of the game only 2 things need to be adjusted, both need to be removed.
Under the "frames" folder in frame 1, remove:
PlaceObject2 (32: Preloader Bar (NewgroundsAPI))(:Preloader Bar (NewgroundsAPI)) Depth: 9
Under the "scripts" folder in frame 1, remove:
DoAction. Specifically the one that has "stop ();"
This will get the game running immediately without issue.
A bonus for future encoders/publishers if the video ever gets taken down remove "DefineSounds (538)" from the sounds folder.
Anyways, despite looking simple of a game where you just hold right, as I found out 2 years after the WR the game has speedtech.
By going into Molly's Room and the Bathroom you shave a few frames compared to not doing this:
As another fun fact, you can hold the spacebar to basically "autopilot things" along, but it's not necessary in a TAS so it's been timed for cleaner input.
And comparatively in RTA timing this is a 6:39.375.

Info Teddy: Claiming for judging.
Info Teddy: Replaced file with one with correct annotations (so site parser recognizes it as Flash).
Info Teddy: Setting to Delayed pending potential rule changes about triviality.
Info Teddy: After consulting with judges, this movie is decidedly not trivial under current rules. Accepting to Standard.
fsvgm777: Processing. Also changed the branch to "best ending" to be more consistent with runs that aim for the best possible ending.

N64/DS TASer of 2021
I've come across this game a few times over the years and always forget the name, so I didn't realise I was familiar with it until I started watching. I'm wondering why this is Linux and not Flash?

Because they forgot Platform: Flash in the annotations. Don't worry, it'll be fixed.
