Glymetrix, Inc., makes and hosts browser games designed for players who have diabetes. Research on healthcare, game design, and behavior change was compiled to create a list of design principles for video games aimed at helping diabetes patients improve their self-care habits. These principles are applied to the two games made by Glymetrix in order to highlight their strengths and points for possible improvement. Additionally, players' play habits are analyzed to find any patterns which could possibly aid in encouraging players to play more.
