    http://heroesofnewerth.com -- a linux client is coming as reported on Slashdot Game News

    The article is light on details but I quite enjoy Demigod (a game in the same vein) yet I would much rather play it on linux. Hope this will satisfy my Demigod fix ... must click click click.

        I am also looking forward to that game. Just a few days ago if found out, that the dota team is doing a game their self, i was quite unhappy that they dont seem to be interested in a linux port (while mac users might be lucky).
        BUT now i am happy xD always loved dota (and wc3 in general)
        checking the whole net to get a beta key xD... lets see ^^

          They've mentioned on their facebook page that once they get 10,000 fans they'll open up the beta testing to everyone that is a fan of HoN.

          http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/he...newerth?ref=nf

          Discussions about HoN are also allowed now but no media.

          Finally I have a couple of invites if anyones interested, pm me with an email addr. that I can use to send out the invite to.

            Edit: All my invites are gone. Have fun with the beta!

            P.S.:

            All HoN testers free to talk about HoN
            All participants in the HoN beta test now have express permission from S2 Games to communicate and discuss Heroes of Newerth publicly. This includes forum discussions and talking to friends and family. Our embargo on media relating to HoN (videos, screenshots) is still in full effect and we'd kindly ask our testers not to disclose any game related media to those not actively in the Heroes of Newerh Beta.

            So it is quite a nice game, and runs without a hitch on Linux already. However for me personally it is maybe a but too close to DOTA (even graphically). And it is really annoying that you currently have to wait for 10 players to join a server.

                  @Julius: You still got Keys? I'd really like to try this, since I used to play Dota quite a lot.

                  @topic: Looks almost like they took Dota 1:1 and added fancier graphics. But I've already read on some other sites that there are presumably more maps than just the classical Dota one, so I'm looking very much forward to this game.

                        Linux Games have a number of beta keys to give away for HoN.

                          I'm in beta, too. The NDA has lifted a bit, you are allowed to talk but can't post screenshots or videos.

                          The game is awesome, especially if you love DotA, you will love Heroes of Newerth The Linux port is great, it has 64-bit support, multicore support, RandR support and a lot more. The graphics are fantastic, definitly one of the best looking games for Linux.

                            Well they have their 10,000 fans on Facebook and will be sending out the invites in about 12 hours time. They stated that if you become a fan before the invites get sent out, you will still get an invite.
