Video games are good for a lot of things: procrastinating instead of doing homework, making you late for appointments, saving fake princesses from imaginary lands, etc. But they also occasionally can be used to teach people things a bit more important than how to min/max your Pokemon (but maybe not as complex). Like what? Like diabetes.

No, really.

You may never have thought that there would be a video game where you would take a diabetic elephant through a summer camp while he has to manage his blood sugar, did you?


But is the game any good? Unfortunately, I don’t know. It turns out that I stumbled across this game, unopened, at a local thrift store, and this game is worth more sealed than opened. So, I’ll just have to play it vicariously via videos on YouTube.

Somehow I feel like I’m not missing much.
