A game that we made for the 2016 Second Annual Invitational Game Jam. The theme was "Diabetes Self-Management" which we decided to approach from the perspective of a small child suffering from a diabetic comma. The idea of our game was to take the complexities of managing diabetes in an everyday life and express that from the perspective of a child. Because of this information is not given directly to you and everything is abstracted.The concep that you have these properties that, depending on diet and exercise, affect you dramatically (often negatively if not properly managed) is still present in a child like setting of Hansel and Grettle.

Unfortunately we didn't have the time to complete all of the themes that we had wanted, like hitting harder on the effects of insulin and the combination of hunger met with carbs and insulin.
