It seems as if Linux gamers are indeed really excited for having new games on Linux, well, "really excited" may still be an understatement. About 24 hours ago we talked about Heroes of Newerth, a game being developed by S2 Games, was coming to Linux and we were able to hand out beta invitations
to begin playing the game immediately as part of their closed testing process. Beyond that though, S2 Games has asked that the media refrain from sharing many details about this online role playing game that is derived from DoTA, but with much fancier graphics. In the past day we have already given out far more than 450 beta invitations to Linux users and there is no sign yet that the requests are letting up.
If you are interested in trying out Heroes of Newerth as part of their closed beta program, read this post
and this post
to find out how -- you basically just need to ask us in this forum thread
(it's going on 46 pages so far worth of comments). We still have some 200 keys on hand, but if we run out, we should be able to still get another batch of keys from S2 Games. Keep the requests coming and let's show to S2 Ganes and the other gaming studios that there is indeed a viable market for Linux games!
