EAE

The screenshot of the video game appears to be in outer space - the background is black with gray specs that might be stars scattered. A white rectangle takes up the majority of the frame in the middle—it's coated in a texture that looks like breaking ice, with lavender duding. Across the middle are stacks of blue 3-dimensional rectangles. On the ends are golden symbols that look like a hand fan. There are black holes going diagonally across the middle, as if the white rectangle has dimension holes in it.
