In this paper, a model for serious game (SG) development is presented and explained along with a definition of stealth serious games (SSG). A systemic review on existing models is performed; based on the existing model’s deficiencies and the researchers’ previous experience in the development of SG the SSG model is created and explained. To observe how a SSG developed with the SSG Model would behave, “Chain of Command: A Sustainable Supply Chain Management Stealth Serious Game” is developed and tested. The developed SG is tested on 4 metrics: replay value, education, fun and simple vs realistic. The SSG model is successful in helping to develop a SSG that performs acceptably. Further validation of the SSG model is still required.
