Space, Shape and Deperate Measures
Luke Spacewalker leaves his home planet Isosceles to measure the length and breadth of the galaxy. Aided by his trusty robot companion, 2D3D, he aims to calculate the shape and size of everything.

Little does he know though, that his every move is being tracked by the evil Daft Apeth and that this seemingly harmless mathematical exercise will turn into a battle that could 'shape' the course of the Universe itself!
