Oneshot is by far one of the greatest games I have ever played. Yeah, you read that right; this game is amazing. I would pay money to play this game. That's how good it is. From the beautiful art design, to the atmospheric music, this game should be praised all over the internet for its presentation alone. It's hard to believe that Oneshot was made within 30 days. I have to give my props to the developers for their hard work and dedication to this game. I could ramble on for paragraphs about all the things that I love about this game, but I'll just mention the one thing that stood out the most for me. The game's use of breaking the fourth wall is very unique; you, the player, play a role in the game's story. I don't want to go into too much detail without spoiling it, but you'll just have to take my word for it. I really hope to see another game developed by these guys, and I'd also like to see other creators be inspired by it's structure. Just remember, you only have one shot. 5/5

Took me awhile BUT I MANAGED TO GET THE GAME RUNNING!!!
At first chrome blocked the download, then is my antivirus blocking(or just delete it) the rpg_rt.
but then I managed to run it!
then there's a big problem...
When it says 'oneshot' I have no idea what does it means (my English sucks)... and then after awhile I only realise you can only play this game once.
I was planning to replay this game with a friend... so far I am at the second part (took me an hour and looking for cheats to get thru, damn)

But I guess I found a way to able myself to replay this game?
Just look around in my pc to find a certain thing and then delete it... right? Or do I need to delete everything this game created (including the 'document' thing)?
Edit: I was wrong can anyone give me a hint or message me in private how am I gonna replay this please


you use regedit. HKEY_current_user, software, and delete the oneshot folder. start it up and then quit. then start it again. boom, one shot reloaded.

I tried this and all it does is reload from my last save (I'd already finished the game so I know it's done SOMETHING, at least). Do I have to kill Niko and restart?

Okay. I wasn't sure if it meant start it up and quit from the menu, or actually start playing and then quit. But yay! Now I can play again!
This game is in my top 10! It had wonderful graphics, music, and story! I'm so glad I got to play this. Thanks!

ALL THE SPOILERS!
I'm a rational person. Putting aside my feeling I thought over many possibilities and of course chose to save the world. One persons suffering or the lives of many? We would hate to be that person but... we're not. So we have to make the right choice for them. It was the most difficult 5 minutes of my life but I knew what I had to do. Also since you deleted my background I'll have to get a new one of Niko! ;)

don't give up! the starting room is not very big, you're bound to find it eventually :)
So I heard that a more complete version of the game was going to be released this month.
Is it true?

Not this month, unfortunately! We're trying our best to get it done this winter, if not next spring.
Just completed this,adventures are my favorite genre and so i loved this short experience.The creator of the game plays around and ties classic puzzle mechanics with brain teasers that break "the forth wall" creating a neat interactive story-driven fairytale set in a decaying post-apocalyptic world.All this combined with its distinctive character pixel art design and eerie atmospheric music creates an emotional impact on the player that drives the gameplay till the end with a superb solid ending.I hightly recommend Oneshot to anyone wanting to play a good short adventure.
Oneshot - one of the best RM games I've played. Highly recommended. CM

Oneshot is getting an extended version/sequel! It's been in the works for over a year now. We'll have something to announce soon.
Absolutely LOVED this, but the one gripe I had was how rushed it felt near the end, so the fact that its getting an extended version in sooooo exciting!

Phenomenal! Thank you for making this Nightmargin ^_^
