Story

Story Trailer
Greenville’s population has mysteriously lost its ability to do math because the town’s mystical math orb has mysteriously disappeared.

The town’s only hope lies in the hands of Pi, the student’s character, who is drawn into quests to help the people re-learn their math skills. Pi quickly learns that the annual Corn Festival is a major contributor to Greenville’s prosperity.

If forgetting how to do math isn't catastrophe enough, this year's festival preparations begin to suffer a series of calamities and strange occurrences. By solving real-world mathematical dilemmas, Pi must save the festival, find the culprits, and be the hero.
