Did this game keep H*R from updating?

As you might know, homestarrunner.com hasn't had an update since April, and before that, it hadn't updated since November 2009.

Obviously, The Chaps have been involved with Poker Night at the Inventory, voicing Strong Bad and working on his lines. Is this game the sole reason for the lack of updates, or have there been some other factors? (While I could be wrong, I have a hard time believing a poker game, no matter how dialogue-heavy it is, would take this much time away from them.)

I've got to say, though, The Chaps have unintentionally pulled off the perfect marketing plan for this game. I was planning to get it no matter what, but after almost a year without regular updates I'm seriously willing to pay for new Homestar Runner content. :rolleyes:

  • PN@TI probably isn't the reason the Chaps have been away from HR for so long, I mean Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik (The creators of Penny Arcade) have been able to make regular updates on their site.

  • I believe it's a combination of PN@tI, the baby, and the fact that Matt is working on a screenplay for a movie.

  • A screenplay for a movie? Could someone 'splain please?

    Yeah, but Jerry's not doing Tycho's voice in the game.

    yeah but he's still writing lines and working with them.

  • They had a baby? FFFFFFffffffffffffffffffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • If/when they start doing Homestar Runner again, the Brothers Chaps might needs to take deliberate steps to avoid bitter Internet flame wars directed against the naysayers.

    Strong Bad: "Hello, mewling masses. You might have noticed that my awesome website kinda ended forever and ever a while back, and now we're back and totally not over. My lawyers and definitely not my whiny baby brother Strong Sad have advised to me say the following: please do not yell aweomely vicious insults at anyone who said we were never coming back, no matter how big of jerks they were. ...Calltheirmomsdumb!"
    Strong Mad (offscreen): DON'T BRING THEIR MOMMAS INTO THIS! DO YOU SEE THEIR MOMMAS HERE?
    Strong Bad (running): Peeow!

    Maybe Homestar Runner should do something like this, since it is in fact his site.

    News to me. I'll have to watch this.

    Strong Bad's the most popular character. That, and Homestar's too stupid to say something so sensible.

    Matt and Craig are currently working on a webcomic on the side: Ron Planet. It's awesome.
