''Homestuck'' began on April 13, 2009, only one month after the end of the highly-successful ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth''. It rapidly rose in popularity for many reasons, primarily for its [[JigsawPuzzlePlot intricate]] multi-timeline apocalypse-centric plot, insanely fast update schedule for the first few years[[note]]At its peak, Homestuck updated with 5.5 pages a day on average, a veritable torrent of updates save for [[AnimationBump Flash animations]][[/note]], a visual upgrade from the style of ''Problem Sleuth'', [[AnimationBump Flash animations and games]] accompanied by [[Music/{{Homestuck}} a massive soundtrack]], and its [[TropeOverdosed incredibly high trope density]].

As the scope and scale of the comic grew, Hussie began [[SeriesHiatus pausing updates of the comic]] in order to produce Flash animations, develop ''VideoGame/{{Hiveswap}}'', and work on larger chunks of the story at once, including a weeks-long hiatus for the End of Act 5 flash, a year-long "Gigapause" during Act 6, and an eight-month "Omegapause" from July 2015. Homestuck's final stretch of updates began on March 28th, 2016, and the climax of the story [[LongRunner finally]] ended on [[ArcNumber April 13th]], 2016, the seventh anniversary of the comic. However, Hussie also stated that he plans for an epilogue sometime down the line, likely in the same fashion he did with ''Problem Sleuth''.

Voice acting troupe Creator/ColabHQ is in the process of dubbing ''Homestuck'', and by February 2015 has reached Act 6 Act 3. The adaptation is currently on hiatus as work on the trilogy of massive "Openbound" updates is finished. The group's creative team is going to be restructured afterward, at which point, the future of the project is not entirely certain.
