I wonder if they will have a message of "Eat like PacMan and you'll be sorry!"

Leord4974d ago

Lol, you sir are evil :)

What the..? I wonder if this will actually... work!?

I don't normally think educational games are any good but this seems like a really good idea. Will it appeal to people without Diabetes though?

Cogo4974d ago

I think the game mechanic is similar to "eating" or "sleeping" in games anyway. It's a great way to just make it more of a natural aspect of the game.

I think it's a great idea, and I know quite a few people with Type 1 diabetes.

Hmm.. it reminds me of the asthma game I read a review of on SomethingAwful recently... educational games should be stopped, but maybe it will be good. We!ll see
