Problem Sleuth is the third MS Paint Adventure. Initially a parody of detective noir stories, though quickly abandoning that premise in favor of stranger and wackier plot directions, the adventure tells the story of Problem Sleuth, Ace Dick and Pickle Inspector, three competing private detectives who operate out of neighboring offices in the same building. When all three become trapped inside their respective offices, they join forces to find a way out of their predicament and defeat the evil Mobster Kingpin, who possesses the key they need to leave their building.
Problem Sleuth debuted on March 10, 2008, relaunching MS Paint Adventures after the abandonment of Bard Quest eight months earlier caused the site to be shut down indefinitely. Exactly one year later, on March 10, 2009, the central storyline reached its conclusion, and, after the release of an additional epilogue chapter, Problem Sleuth ended on April 7 with a total of 1,673 pages.

December 3, 2017 – Week in review, featuring zodiac signs and book stuff
The Hiveswap website was updated with a new look and a new feature: The Extended Zodiac, the new 288-sign zodiac created for the game's trolls. A personality test on the site will determine your sign, as well as your lunar sway (Propsit or Derse dream affiliation) and aspect. Some interesting new Homestuck lore is in here, plus it appears we will "probably" get a class quiz at some point in the future. If you're really in love with your new zodiac sign, you can now buy a t-shirt of it at For Fans By Fans.
Quest for the Missing Spoon met its Kickstarter funding goal, but the campaign runs until December 17, so you still have time to claim your official SBaHJ dunce cap and barbecue sauce.
The Amazon listings for Viz Media's firsttwoHomestuck books have been updated with preview pages. Acts 1 to 3 appear to be mostly identical to their treatment in the original TopatoCo books, but we get our first glimpse at how the Intermission will be presented in print. Book 1 (Acts 1 & 2) releases April 13, 2018, while Book 2 (Act 3 & Intermission) comes out on July 10.
November 17, 2017 – Kickstarter 2: Electric Boogaloo
The kickstarter for Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff and the Quest for the Missing Spoon has launched! (Apparently Andrew Hussie has dipped his toes into the lucrative fidget spinner market. I'd say I'm disappointed, but after reading the latest SBaHJ comic yesterday, I'm mostly just numb.) Anyways, if you're interested in this sort of thing, go back it!
