Another day in maths class... Mr. Sobek, your new teacher, seems to be enjoying it, but you would rather be somewhere else. But things are not as they first appear, it turns out Mr. Sobek has been doing a bit of moonlighting in Ancient Egypt. Suddenly, the mysterious vortex takes you there, and things are not good. The city of Abydos is falling apart and unless it's fixed you can't get back home. Making Abydos prosper will not be easy, but the mysterious rewards tempt you onwards...
Will you master the secrets of basin agriculture? Can you do some quick business at the market? Do you have what it takes to rule an Egyptian kitchen? And importantly, does every maths teacher sneak off to Ancient Egypt through a vortex?
Well, what are you waiting for? Enter the world of Abydos!
