''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]] [[KudzuPlot multi-timeline]] [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt apocalypse-centric]] plot, [[OneManArmy 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 [[ArtEvolution 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]].

In 2012, a [[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/14293468/homestuck-adventure-game Kickstarter]] for a full fledged AdventureGame later titled ''VideoGame/{{Hiveswap}}'' was launched, set [[GaidenGame within the same universe but focusing on new characters, and featuring a story only loosely linked to Homestuck's cast]]. The Kickstarter raised roughly $2.48 Million (out of [[UpToEleven $700,000 minimum]]), an impressive feat that originally placed it in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kickstarter#Top_projects_by_funds_raised Top Ten Kickstarter Projects]] by total funds raised, according to TheOtherWiki; other projects have since pushed it off the list. Hiveswap's development has run alongside the remainder of Homestuck, and is currently being handled by Hussie's in-house studio, What Pumpkin.

On April 13, 2014, on ''Homestuck'''s fifth anniversary, Hussie launched an online webcomic anthology, ''Webcomic/ParadoxSpace'', which will be hosting new comics about the world of ''Homestuck'' as drawn by other artists. You can check it out [[http://paradoxspace.com/ right here]].

The comic has ended on April 13, 2016, ''Homestuck''[='=]s seventh anniversary. An epilogue is slated to follow for an unspecified date. In the meantime, the ''Homestuck 2.0'' multimedia project [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxHnKT_2u64 will continue various aspects of the franchise across multiple mediums]], with the aforementioned ''Hiveswap'' serving as a crucial piece of the initiative. Oh, and BigNameFan Creator/DanteBasco is involved as a part of it.

...It will be Zoosmell Pooplord...er, sorry. It will be John Egbert. Our chief protagonist is one of four thirteen-year-old friends--the other three being Rose Lalonde, Dave Strider, and Jade Harley--who are fated to play Sburb, a widely-hyped multi-player video game with real-life effects. Sburb allows players to manipulate and modify each other's environments in real time in a way reminiscent of ''VideoGame/TheSims''. But as it turns out, the consequences of playing Sburb [[TheGamePlaysYou are significantly further-reaching than they initially appear to be]], and what begins as a series of amusing domestic struggles and game-mechanics goofs quickly [[SerialEscalation spirals into a succession of events]] far beyond the expectations of its participants.

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, the exact fashion he did with ''Problem Sleuth''.
