Steven Universe: The Movie is out now, and it’s rekindling fans’ interest in the series. But what if you want something more intimate than a new movie? Like, what if you want to sleep with the Crystal Gems?

Cartoon Network isn’t likely to put out an official Steven Universe porn game any time soon, so two fans did the hard work instead. The result, Gem Blast, is a porn parody game starring Pearl and Amethyst.

Gem Blast casts players as an unnamed protagonist (seemingly an adult-aged Steven Universe) returning to Beach City after being away for quite some time. While back home, Garnet warns the player to behave themselves before going on a secret mission, leaving them with Pearl and Amethyst. The two prove ridiculously horny and proceed to show their affection for their old friend with a rather hands-on approach.

Developed by programmer Rilogator and artist DigitalkaijuGem Blast’s creators “plan on doing more content like this (and hopefully better)” in the near future, along with adding more material to the game. “It’s short, it’s sweet, I hope you like it. Here’s the first iteration of the project I’ve been spending a month of work off and on with my good friend Rilogator,” Digitalkaiju tweeted last month.

The two friends decided to create games together in July, Rilogator told the Daily Dot. Both loved Steven Universe, and they figured a porn parody of a popular series “would be a straightforward way to gain an audience quickly” for future games. Developing Gem Blast was “relatively easy” given both developers’ past experience, although the two grappled with what content to depict and how to design gameplay around it.

“There’s a balance of written content to visual content to interactivity and everyone wants a different ratio of those things,” Rilogator said. “We’re currently working on a content update based on the feedback we received so far. Parsing through all the comments to find out [what] will make the most people happy is nearly a gamble, but we try to deliver quality content no matter what.”

It’s no secret that players are already in love with the fangame, partially because Gem Blast’s artwork and writing both feel right at home within the Steven Universe canon. The game racked up over 13,000 views on Newgrounds alone, along with an additional 4,500 visits on itch.io.

While short, Gem Blast is available for PC and Mac on itch.io and online via Newgrounds. Fans interested in supporting the game’s creators can head over to Digitalkaiju’s Patreon page and join their Discord. In the meantime, more content is expected for Gem Blast “within the week,” Rilogator said, “featuring new scenes for Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl.”

“The attention we got surpassed even our highest expectations,” Rilogator said. “We’re very optimistic for the future.”
