I've had an idea for what a game for Homestuck would be like, This idea would require tons of funding & resources & people & time though, but I'd still wanna put it on the table. The game would essentially be a video game copy of Sburb. It would essentially start out with the characters riding down on the meteors as babies, you would then get asked a bunch of questions from a first guardian such as "how many people are playing?" "Is your species trolls or humans?" questions like that. those questions would determine things like the species & the amount of people. Then you would get the first character in their house & they start the game, they then have a certain amount of time (like 3 minutes) to get everything set up such as prototyping the kernelsprite & creating the artifact required to enter the medium. They would then get a randomized Planet such as Land of Souls & Silence (LOSAS), or if a player is really lucky Land of Grist & Boonbucks. The point is that these planets are randomized for each playthrough. One player would definitely get a planet with frogs in order to create the Genesis frog. They then would get a Planet quest & 7 rings to travel through. The goal would be to kill the Black King as that is the main goal in Sburb, but I think that something could happen that could completely through the game for a loop. Such as how Jack completely took over the Beta kids session. maybe an external force takes over the session & the new goal is to destroy the external force. Permadeath will be a feature for certain things to happen such as god tier or reviving them through their dream self. If a playthrough can't be one, then they would have the option to scratch the game in order for a new chance at winning. This would obviously replace the kids with their guardians. Players wouldn't be able to take to each other normally, it would require certain circumstances such as a sprite being present, or them talking in a dream bubble, or having to text each other, until they get the gift of gab. They would be able to unlock God tier badges on their Kiddy Camper Handysash in order to get stronger in the game. Jujus would definitely be in the game. when a session is completely unbeatable, then the playthrough is over, & they would have to start a new game, answer First Guardian questions, & create a new session to try to win. it would essentially be a Rouge-Lite. what do you guys think about this idea?

I think you're best off trying to join the team for The Genesis Project, since they're making a sburblike that seems to have promise.

The future that everyone wants is out there for the taking. It is the age of the fanwork in this fandom now. HS^2 imo is best taken as a slight distraction rather than something substantial. That which lies beyond the end is for the fandom to decide.

That being said, I've got my stuff to work on, hoping to carve out a route of my own from what's been given. No idea what I wanna do, considering I'm not exactly all that much invested in the characters (more the mechanics of the game than anything), but hopefully the desires of others can guide my path.
There are thousands of directions that can be taken and thousands of fans out there, many with the skills to make their ideas reality. Waiting for officially created content seems counterproductive at this point when there's so many other channels to get content from.

Start with the Meat timeline. Don't address Candy at all, leave that to the fans.

Make the primary form of interaction a forum that the Omega kids created in order to solve Dirk's version of Sburb. Assign a writer to each Omega kid and have them interact with fans in threads. Mix up direct replies with panels and chatlogs. Make the narrative flow be determined through the interaction of fans and a weak outline that is tweaked by good ideas that percolate through interactions with the fans. (You know, like that one webcomic)

Forum culture absolutely rocks and HS dies when the forum dies.

Just to be dumb and indulgent if i got to redo H2:
Double down on the Meat / Candy as the two main reasons people write fanfiction (Gritty Plot and Comfortable Fluff). Put all the gritty conflict of both into Meat , and then filling Candy with Fluff. Domestic stuff, cute little romance things, give some characters more space to be comfortable, grow, reach some catharsis Go To Therapy. Have a dichotomy between characters that are Powerful but Miserable, and characters that are Happy but Complacent, and then conclude by Forcing The Two Worlds To Collide. Meat characters furious and frustrated that they were forced through so much suffering while their Candy counterparts apparently never had to struggle. Candy characters frustrated by how maladjusted and resistant to empathy or growth their Meat counterparts had become. Forced to either reconcile their differences or annihilate each other. One timeline where conflict is forever relegated to the past, and the other where resolution or peace feels like an impossible future.
It's sort of a broad stroke, I've got more ideas for minutea but that would just break down to me making bullet point fanfiction, and I'm probably wordy enough as is.
