Description

Who are you again? And what the hell are you doing here? Wait… is this Earth, and who exactly is that kid over there? He looks nice!

Embark on a quest of epic importance in Pesterquest, a grimsical episodic visual novel set in the darkly funny Homestuck/Hiveswap universe created by American author and artist Andrew Hussie.

Find all the answers you're looking for across 14 volumes of idiosyncratic adventure packed with visual mastery and shrewdly written narrative. As you zap between Earth and Alternia, you’ll discover and reconnect with up to 20 friends both extra and terrestrial.

With 14 volumes in total, you'll reconnect with familiar friends in a series of short visual novels as a new volume is released every 2 weeks. The first 2 volumes will release together at launch.
