Fun and Informative

While it's not the longest game (I just played through the whole thing in twenty minutes), "I Got This" is a good starting point for educating kids about Diabetes. With fun, retro graphics and music, and a relatable main character, the app tells an interesting and entertaining story that all ages can take something away from. It's not an exhaustive source of information that explores every possible cause of Diabetes; rather it's a well-made tool to spread basic awareness about an increasingly widespread disease. Well done to the creators for this unique idea.

Not accurate

Undiagnosed diabetics go into DKA or diabetic keto acidosis, this causes the frequent urination and weight loss not gain. Unhealthy lifestyles and being overweight are not big factors of type 2, or any diabetes, they are definitely not helpful, but not causes. Hailey Berry has Type 2 and she is definitely not overweight. I quit the game outta frustration. I have two T1 kids which is what is typically seen in such early diagnosis, and not because they ate pizza and lots of soda to wash it down with. They is so stereotypical it's insulting. I was hoping to see a truly educational game. I'm sadly disappointed.

Educational & interesting

Great game that makes me want to pay attention to my health more, also loved the diversity in the game (we really need more poc representation in games, so thank you! Overall very educational & fun to play along.
