Pesterquest is a Homestuck universe visual novel that serves as a sequel to Hiveswap Friendship Simulator. The game was announced on August 22nd, 2019, following a cryptic teaser 9 days prior, to be a 14 episode visual novel that will feature interactions with Homestuck characters on both Earth and Alternia, with episodes being published on a similar biweekly schedule to Hiveswap Friendsim. The first two episodes were released on September 4th, 2019.

The game seemingly follows the continued adventures of the MSPA Reader, who is transported back to Earth by means of the Treasure Juju. The game's Steam store page describes it as "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."


Volumes 1 and 2 were released on Steam on September 4th, 2019. The game was developed in Ren'Py and the game was given an ESRB rating of Mature 17+, suitable for ages 17 and up. It was later released in its entirety on the Google Play store on November 10, 2020.

Each of the Pesterquest volumes feature a character or two, though certain characters may have a significantly smaller, background role in the game. By volume, Pesterquest has featured:
