This game had almost zero effort put into it from the aweful voice acting to the implmentation of the controls. The game sat on repeat of the opening scene for me where the main character walks into an instant death, only to restart and repeat. All while hearing the same horrible voice actor "I'm sooo drunk..." in badly recording ear wrecking audio.

Is this game worth playing? No. Not even for free.

This is what you get when you buy a random steam key... you get a steaming pile of crap! I would feel sorry for berrating this game but with the amount of time it appears to have taken to build this...thing, this abomination, this broken game... this....
Arrrgghhh!!!
No sane, sober person should touch this game, not even if it were free to play or even if the devs paid us... I'm just sad that I didn't know about the steam refunds at the time and that I wasted 0.7 hrs of my life on this game that I'll never get back.

Don't waste your money on this joke of a game. It's bad, it's pointless, it's paintakingly hard as it gives no hint to anything whatsoever.

You want an oldschool schooter that is actually good? Try Duke Nukem Megaton edition. Or maybe Shadow Warrior if you want more oriental setting with possessed ninjas and chineese ghosts. Or maybe Hexen. Or Powerslave (for PSX that is). Or Doom 1, 2, Final Doom. Or Painkiller. Or Serious Sam...

I believe you get the drill.

This „shooter” does not have any reedeming qualities. Graphics are bad, gameplay is pointless, combat is hard and random.

I've got it in some bundle thus it didn't hurt me as much as if I would've bought it. Please consider most of the negative reviews out there - if you die in the first 10 seconds of the game without knowing what's going on here then this should give you a hint about the quality of this „game”.

So it turns out I got this game a while back from a Groupees bundle. Yea, it's ♥♥♥♥♥♥ game, avoid at all cost. To be honest, graphics are pretty neat looking for a 1 man dev team. Heck, I really like how I get to shoot with a STG-44!!

The creatures are cool and creepy looking, but that's about it for compliments.

It's a bummer the Developer abandoned this game. This game is impossible to play without God Mode on. If this game comes bundled from a bundle, then sure, get it and play it. But otherwise, don't even bother getting it at full price or on sale. You'll be really disappointed.

Final verdict:
DON'T GET THE GAME AT ALL COST!!

It's a tough game cause you irritation and anger. But it is very interesting, exciting and free DLC for survival. A variety of models of the enemy, a large selection of weapons and the long levels of saving are rare will give you a couple of sleepless nights!

First the games highest resolution is 1280X720. It doesn't really look good with flat textures and with everything being grey and bland. The story makes no sense at all how you are a drunk guy that based out in the street and now you have to fight demons in your head.

The main problem with this game is the difficulty. first level you wake up get a gun kill the first demon watch a cut scene and die. yep unless you are in an area of cover before the next area activates you will die really quickly and the enemies are bullet sponges for days. some of the attacks so up on the screen to know what will kill you but regular bullets have no visual indication so you never know when or where shots come from. also there is no indication as to whether or not you have been hurt or y how much except for a bar made of several boxes which are grey and black.

I only got to the second level where it wanted me to get music sheets to play the piano. This is the worst example of a cover shooter when all you can do is hope to not get hit and get through areas without dying and restarting the whole level.

Just wasted 10 minutes of my life playing this game. Ridiculously bad voice acting, with a story line that doesn't make sense. The worst is the gameplay, basically monsters spawn in horde, and their projectile will 1 hit kill you, while it will take you 10 hits with your crappy weapon to kill them (no headshot kill as far as I can see). And somehow there's no checkpoint so you if you die you have to restart the level again. In fact, some are forced, in level 2, you will open a door and immediately get hit in your face with a large projectile resulting in instant death. The weapons doesn't have any feel to them, there is no indicator of the amount of ammo left or anothing like that, just a bar with white/gray lines that make no sense at all. Highly not recommended!

"I'm drunk.........I'm very,very DRUNK" and that's how we get introduced to what i can only describe as one of the worst game's it has been my pleasu.......................SORRY no absolute NIGHTMARE to play.
Now looking at the amount of time i have actually spent in game you would wonder how i could (and to be honest its not much time-doesnt even show up as an hour as i only played for about 40-50 minutes) be able to make such a judgement on such a short play-through and why i have such a negative feeling about this game???
Well read on and i will fill you in on what an absolute horrible experience i had,how bad a game this is and just why this game should burn for its sin's (i dont usually say game's have no place on STEAM or any other platform for that matter,but this is one of those game's that really should have stayed in the mind of the developer's).

ONE DAY for Ched v.1.0.4 trailer - YouTube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxWwYXveD9U

Ok let's get to the basic thing any good game needs over graphic's and anything else the gameplay,you start playing the game and think "OH look the doors are opening and here comes a wave of enemies,at least theres a few different varieties to shoot".
Then you walk forward and start firing and *WHAM,BAM* thank you *MAM* down you go,OK you pick yourself up and try again and guess what *BANG* down you go again,so i decided to play the old hide behind the wall routine and pop out taking shot's at the goon's just for a shot to pierce straight through the wall and take me down.
So i dusted myself down,picked myself up and tried again,four out of five enemies went down and "LOOK OUT" i fell down and died again,and i hadent even been shot at?????
So one more try!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After another ten attempt's i got past this bit and entered the building and then "OH look here comes another wave of enemies" and down i went again,now this wouldent bother me except for the fact that i then got put straight back to the start (THE START I TELL YOU-they know there's no need to shout).
Thats when i thought "AH to hell with this game",and beleive me its not a case of getting better at the game its all about luck (as in if the game's engine will let you even play it as its meant to be played).

One Day For Ched Gameplay (PC HD) - YouTube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdFyyol7YpQ

The graphic's are really bad for this type of a game and do nothing to help endear it to the player at all,with the creature's you fight looking more like lifeless blob's than anything that would actually instill fear in (as the character is) the mind of someone who's sanity was in question.
The story well what can i say about that except for the fact that it make's no sense whatsoever and has something to do with Ched wanting to be free of his inner demon's and that the battle rage's on in his mind and this is where the player step's in trying to help him sort the real from the un-real.
The sound is ok and does its job as well as can be expected but its the spoken dialogue that really has to be heard to be believed.I have never laughed so much at anything a game character has said in such a long time (until it got on my nerves that is),the main character sound's exactally like a certain "Elmer Fudd" ( to anyone who doesnt know who that is "GOGGLE" Bugs Bunny and you'll see what i mean) with his "I'm drunk..................very very drunk" sounding just like its been ripped straight from an episode of the classic cartoon he featured in (well yes if he got drunk whilst "Hunting Wabbits" that is).

Here's exactally where i think they got the idea for the main character's voice -

In closing will you like this game in the slightest well that all depends on 3 thing's -
1 - Do you like playing really bad game's that to be honest never should have seen the light of day?????
2 - Do you like game's that punish you in an unfair way????? (not like DARK SOUL'S does though as that game make's sense and reward's you for your effort's-this does not)
3 - Do you really want a game on your account that just show's itself up as soon as you download and start it up to play?????
Well if you can answer yes to the above then by all mean's go ahead and buy it,if that's not you (THANK GOD) then stear clear as this is one game that (in my humble opinion) isnt even worth getting in a bundle,with 90% off or (and i hate to say this) FREE.

I heard a lot of bad things about this game, but I paid money for it so I figured I should at least play it and try it. I gave it a chance.

In the first level you get to pick up some weapons on the ground and then get ambushed by enemies. Some shoot projectiles that kill you instantly or knock you around if you're close to their blast. I learned this and worked around it. When you're in an open area like the first level they're fairly easy to dodge. There was a gun on the ground marked "bonus" which I'm guessing the developer added later? It has practically infinite ammo and a molotov/grenade launcher on the secondary fire, which you pretty much need. The normal guns do not have much ammo and ammo pickups are scarce. FUN FACT: If you watch the developer's playthrough videos on the Desura page for this game, you will see he uses this weapon and its infinite grenades to kill enemies by knowing where they will spawn and spamming them against walls while out of their sight.

Then came the second level. I examined a letter on a desk and the game crashed. I restarted, picked up the letter, enemies spawned, killed them (after dying a few of times of course) moved onto the next room, picked up some health, crashed. After much dying I manage to get about 75% of the way through the level, where I walked into a small room and two insta-kill projectile enemies spawned. That's when I pretty much gave up trying to play the game normally.

I pressed on, using my advanced technical prowess to discover that typing "god" in the console enables god mode. Levels 2 through 4 have you finding keys to get to keys to get to keys to finally open a door where you need to go, except when the keys are switches. All of the levels are really short (about 5 minutes each, discounting deaths), having you fight in close quarters with many of those insta-kill enemies before reaching a boss at the end. After 5 levels the game is over.

But then there's the bonus DLC level! This one was a lot of fun. In the DLC, the enemies can sometimes kill you even when you enable god mode with the console! Using a combination of god mode, noclip (ghost/walk), and trial and error I managed to get through this one. It's a long level which just repeats "fight a horde of enemies, find health kit and ammo" until you get to the end where there are two large rooms with a dozen enemies each inside. I don't see how it is even possible to pass this, but if you somehow manage then at the end there is a dead end which magically ends the level if you walk into the wall.

I have a soft spot for mediocre shooters, but this is just borderline playable if it doesn't crash on you. If you use extremely cheap tactics with the infinite ammo gun and die enough times to know when and where every enemy will spawn you could probably get through it, but does that sound fun to you?

Don't waste your money on this game. There are so many other FPS games you could get instead of this one and have an enjoyable experience. Heck, even if this game was free don't even bother unless if you really like barebone zero freedom soulless FPS games with the lasting appeal of used toilet paper. This is a prime example of the tripe that seems to really slip by the Greenlight process only because of the promise of Steam keys via bundles.

A little haiku:

Rain, stupid graphics everywhere.
I see stupidity smiles at Steam, who lives in ignorance.
Crappy games in summer rain bring keys.
Oh why do the players vote for the key,
so that crap appears on Steam when the autumn sun shines?

It doesn't take one long to figure out One Day for Ched is a brutal game. 95% of the user reviews here don't even play the game longer than 20 minutes. Alas, I have spent time with it, and have seen the game to completion... Twice. I've seen it all, and what there is, isn't worth the frustration and mental pain to experience in this game.

GRAPHICS:
You might be fooled into buying this game because of the screenshots on the store page. 1DC has a cell shaded asthetic that looks a lot like it was going for a Borderlands look, and to a certain degree, it succeeds. However, the rest of the textures are so flat and bland that it actually looks downright awful at times. There are hallways in the game long enough that the games draw distance just hard blurs it out. Enemies also just look poor. They don't even have textures, they have certain shapes such as demons, imps, and weird grey grunty things. but aside from their shape they just get colors.

GAMEPLAY:
1DC claims to be a classic FPS game. It's main way of conveying this is that the combat is fast paced, and instead of using cover, you strafe back and forth to avoid enemey fire. Its problems start with that enemy projectiles are either too numerous, or completely invisible and impossible to dodge. Second problem is that being hit more than twice will result in death. Many players have stated that God Mode is required to complete levels beyond 2, and I have to agree.

SOUND:
All of sounds in the game are standard Unreal 3 Dev kit stuff. Guns sound good, but a few of them sound the same. Music in game is nearly non-existant apart from boss battles, and what their is, isn't good. The second boss theme is actually a Jack-in-the-Box theme... unbelievable. Voice acting here is atrocious.. I wouldn't be shocked if it was one of the Devs themselves doing the lines and English is not their first language.

STORY:
Ched is drunk. Very very drunk. He passes out in the middle of the street and within his subconcious, Ched must battle and destory his inner demons in his own 4 Floors of Hell before sunrise or else he'll succumb to alcohol poisoning and die in his drunken sleep... Or at least, I think thats whats going on.

It's an extremely short story with just FIVE missions in the game. It takes less than one hour to complete the campaign. There is an extra DLC episode, but if you play through the game you won't want to play it.

OVERALL:
I own a lot of games. Over 500 in fact. That list includes some of the worst to grace the industry (Sonic 2006, Rogue Warrior, AMY, Tunnel Rats, etc.) and despite all of those; One Day for Ched is by the WORST of them. This is easily the worst game I have ever played and own.. and thats not hyperbole.
