Once upon a time, a silly, impossible little Gem named Pink Diamond ran away from her homeworld to the planet Earth.

Is she trapped inside his Gem? This is so DISORIENTING!

The Tale of Steven is a storybook unlike any other, in an interactive format that tells the same story from multiple viewpoints, inviting the reader to interact with the story as they wish.” —The Hollywood Reporter

“Beneath the surface Tale of Steven is a wonderfully smart commentary on bias and perspective, and how different points of view can all color and reframe the same story.” —Gizmodo
