Last year we got the prologue of homestuck, a week later followed by the full Epilogues. Course later last year we got the start of Homestuck^2 as well. Do any of you think they might have an update or something to show this year?

Closest idea we have for something like that would be Hiveswap or something, or maybe a specila update to homestuck^2, if we get anything after the LOTS of shit we've been getting lately.

A while back it was mentioned that the staff wants to put less emphasis on meme numbers, and 413 has been skipped in the past. I wouldn't get my hopes up, but it's possible we'll get something for 413 and they were only overlooking dates like 612 and 1111.

I desperately hope for the Hiveswap Act 2 release date to be released. But that is a long shot.

I predict that we'll get some kind of special HS^2 update, perhaps with June. And maybe the announcement of yet another visual novel game, though I doubt it'll be with the dancestors because there's already a fan project called Befriendus which fills that niche. Maybe some stand-alone piece of writing set in the Pesterquest timeline?

While true, we did get Homestuck^2 dropped on us for 10/25 (the "meme day" that Cascade came out), so even though they've said they want less emphasis on meme numbers, I think its very possible that we, at least, get a Homestuck^2 update tomorrow. Or possibly more, but I'll take pretty much anything. :rorb:

I've been trying so hard not to get my hopes up, but seriously I'm hoping for some Hive Swap Act 2. It's a long shot, but it has been about 6 months since the trailer and now that Pesterquest is done, I'm trying to hold onto a bit of hope that today we'll get some Act 2.

Yea. Hiveswap seems to be a lot of waiting. They were talking about completing the background art and such and handing it off to the programmers. Considering they started up pesterquest i presume they completed their stuff for hiveswap. Hopefully they are now working on hiveswap act 3 story and art.

It seems like things are going well atm with it all but we will have to see. Something i would hope is going on is them wanting to be ahead on hiveswap act 3 before releasing act 2 so it would shorten the distance between but we will have to see. They are being mum about it more or less.
