Frankenstein’s Lab is a place where the impossible becomes possible. Dr. Frankenstein's work builds on the secrets her great, great, great grandfather learned when he built his first monster, a story most of us know well. Following in the footsteps of her family, her life’s work as a comparative animal physiologist is to figure out how animals’ bodies work. Other comparative physiologists do this by learning about different species separately, then comparing them. But Dr. Frankenstein takes this to the next level. She compares animals’ bodies directly by connecting their body parts together.
Dr. Frankenstein doesn’t want to harm any living animals, so she prints these body parts in her 3D physio-printer before sewing them together. You are her new laboratory assistant, so dive in and help her study these species in Frankenstein's Lab, a comparative physiology game.
