So you aren't actually using MS Paint to draw these, right?

Damn, exposed as a fraud right out of the gate!

No, you're right, I use Photoshop. I started out in MS Paint (in fact, the only image on this site done in Paint is the very first one). But I quickly switched to Photoshop. I needed to be able to keep things on separate layers in an organized series of files as the stories built in complexity. "MS Paint Adventures" was what I named the game before any of this became an issue though, and the name just stuck.

All of Problem Sleuth, Bard Quest and Jailbreak (sans the first page) were drawn (and sometimes animated) in Photoshop. Same with Homestuck, except for a few pages made with Flash here and there, to facilitate sound and interactive elements.

So how did this all start, anyway?

I started it as a game in an online forum. The idea was exactly the same, but people would post their command suggestions in the thread, and I would reply to the thread with images. Pretty much the entire Jail Break adventure was developed in this format. I moved it to its own website for archival purposes.

What is the site's update schedule?

There isn't one! Unless you count "a lot" as a schedule. I'm usually putting stuff up just about every day, and usually multiple pages with each update. But I reserve the right to miss an "update day" here and there. Or even disappear for a week if I want to. I sort of like to think I can do whatever I want.

What do you use to do animation?

Mostly Photoshop CS3 (Problem Sleuth) but lately, Flash too (Homestuck).

Do you accept donations?

Yeah!

Who made the music in Homestuck?

These talented people, specifically for the story.

I have questions about science!

Ok! I wrote a science FAQs page to answer some of those questions.

Problem Sleuth is sort of complicated. It could use a wiki.

You're in luck!

Why is Problem Sleuth so long?

Because that is how long it took to tell the story!

Who are you, and why are you throwing all this weird shit all up in our business?

My name is Andrew, and I have done some other stuff too. As for why I'm doing this, my objective is merely to make your day just a little more fucking awesome.

ANNOUNCEMENT ONE

Hiveswap has been released. You should go play it!



Huge thanks to the entire What Pumpkin Games team for all their hard work on this project. Everyone involved has much to be proud of. Personally, I think the game is VERY GOOD! Really, better than I imagined it would be when scribbling notes for it years ago. Credit is owed to the fans for their patience while the necessary time was taken to build a studio capable of making a game like this. And above all, credit is owed to the great team that brought it to life. If you happen to spot any contributors out in the wild, on social media or such, I hope you will extend your appreciation for what they have accomplished.

ANNOUNCEMENT TWO

What Pumpkin and Homestuck are partnering with Viz Media to work on a lot of cool stuff together in the future. This will include projects based on both the Homestuck and Hiveswap worlds. The possibilities are wide open, but here are a couple examples of things we know we're going to work on already...

Viz will begin releasing the Homestuck books again, starting next year. These will be nice new hardcover editions, and the plan is to just keep turning out volumes until the entire story is in print. Each volume will be full of my Secret Notes just like the previous ones were. Viz will also be involved in the release of the mysterious epilogue project I alluded to a while ago. Details on format, release date, etc, will remain undisclosed until further notice, but you can expect more information about that to surface next year too. I wanted to do something a little unusual for it, something existing outside the confines of the web story. Working with Viz struck me as good opportunity for this.

Aside from that, anything can happen. Take a look at the sorts of things Viz has already published or produced. These are all examples of things on the table for future consideration for either Homestuck or Hiveswap. I've got plenty of ideas, and so do they. Maybe you do too??
