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.

What's new on the MSPA Wiki
The promised news update on the Omegapause has finally been posted. In it, Hussie states that Homestuck is already 99% complete in terms of page count, with the content he will be working on during the break making up the remaining 1%. Work on the final pages won't begin for another month or so, due to work on Hiveswap taking priority, and Hussie says that he won't be producing content at the same breakneck pace he was working at previously. There is currently no estimated release date, though he suggests that it may be sometime next year.
Now that we've all been given time to properly cope with the latest flash, the Omegapause begins! Well, it began two days ago. It is unknown how long it will be until the next news update occurs, but we will be on it when it happens.
This weekend will be update free! After that, there will be two more updates (as the eight were condensed down into seven) on Monday and Tuesday. And then the Omegapause. "But wait," you think or possibly don't, "isn't this all a concerningly short amount of endgame buildup time?" Well, you'd be right in that assumption if you were thinking it! Hussie has clarified that the start of the Omegapause does not indicate the end of pre-endgame stuff. Rather, another stretch of pages will be posted afterwards, before the final animation Hapens.
The years of reading and waiting have finally paid off. That's really all there is to say on the matter.
Hussie has announced that he has not made any horse calendars for the next set of updates! There will be approximately eight of them before we hit the OMEGAPAUSE. He plans to post the next one on Monday, and will probably post one daily afterwards, so we shall see! As a sidenote, he will offer no explanation or excuse to those who have no idea why the hell we keep talking about horses.
