Screenshots from the Steven Universe game that will never be

We are the pixel gems

Steven Universe: Attack the Light! is a pretty dang good mobile role-playing game. But just because that exists doesn’t mean we can’t lament what will never be. Developer and artist Christina Antoinette Neofotistou tweeted out a couple of screens from an unannounced, now-canceled Steven Universe project, along with the caveat “not allowed to say more than that.”

It’s a bummer, considering how cool this looks. Even though it’s chunky pixel art as opposed to pre-rendered sprite, I’m almost getting a Super Mario RPG vibe from it, just from the camera angle and the geometric land masses. Alas, we’ll probably never know what this was supposed to be.
