Homestuck, the MS paint webcomic by Andrew Hussie is being adapted into an adventure game after successfully raising over $700,000 in just three days over on Kickstarter.

The Homestuck webcomic follows a bunch of kids who decide to start playing gamers over the net and find themselves in a series of dire consequences. Hussie is keen to keep the game’s finer plot details guarded for now, but it’s already looking like fans of Scott Pilgrim and Penny Arcade are going to get a kick out of the game.

At the time of writing the project has raised $748,258 of its $700,000 goal, with a total of 8,246 backers.
