ABOUT US

Hi there and welcome to Anatomy Arcade. My name is Ben Crossett and I hope you enjoy your time here and develop a real fascination with how intricately you are constructed. I'm a Science and Physical Education teacher at Glen Waverley Secondary College in Melbourne, Australia. I have been learning flash in my spare time since 2002 and have been making games that help teach basic human anatomy.

This mission was born of frustration with what I saw as a lack of truly engaging material in the area of anatomy and also a frustration as a teacher catching students wasting class time playing flash games every time they were in a computer lab. The catch phrase "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" sums up the decision I made; to investigate the potential of these "pesky" little games to invigorate the delivery of anatomical material to the teenage audience.

It was never my intention to launch a website, but it became apparent upon completion of the first version of Whack-A-Bone, that something exciting was being created that needed to be shared with the rest of the world.

In 2011, I joined forces with a student I taught a while back who was now running a game development studio called Media Saints. Together we created Whack-A-Bone for the iPad, but that venture proved not to be economically viable. Today, in 2021, I am back working by myself in my spare time and feeling very optimistic about the future of the site. I intend on building signature games for all body systems and am keen to make a subscription section which will be "ad-free" and have leaderboards.

Feel free to get in contact with me if you'd like to ask a question, give feedback or make a suggestion and I'll try my best to reply when I find the time.
