exodus billy question mark added, but still no dice. my guess: i linked and posted this before youtube was done “processing” the upload, which is the only thing that was different than normal. i’ll have to be more patient next time!!
also while it’s on my mind: homestuck, as a concept, isn’t that complicated. it’s a webcomic that uses flash animation for important moments. it has an “adventure game” framing device, but that’s pretty cosmetic.
it’s also damn near impossible to read, because the first two arcs are devoted heavily toward frustrating the audience (this is because it originally started as a forum game, each panel posted in response to somebody’s “input,” text adventure style). it is also extremely long and goes way too deep on worldbuilding, but uses some interesting “game mechanics” to do so. It’s genuinely rewarding if you get through it all, but I can’t in good faith recommend anybody even attempt to do so nowadays.
