Fans of Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe can play as their favorite character in Unleash the Light, a role playing game that just launched on Apple Arcade.

Some titles based on TV shows just glue familiar characters onto an unrelated game. Not this one; it features an original story co-written by Rebecca Sugar, the creator Steven Universe. She came up with two Prism-wielding Gems just for the game.

There a 6 playable characters: Steven, Garnet, Pearl, Amethyst, Lapis Lazuli and Bismuth. And the voices are provided by the cast of the show.

Unleash the Light debuted today on Apple’s gaming service. It’s available for download now.

This title, and over 100 more games, are all part of Apple Arcade. Playing any or all of them costs $4.99 a month, and no more — in-app purchases and ads are banned from Apple’s gaming service.

Every Apple Arcade offering is playable on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac, with game state jumping from device to device as they switch. Plus, many titles support Xbox and PS4 controllers, not just touchscreens and keyboards/mice.
