‘Dota 2′ key giveaway


There just might be a release of ‘Dota-2‘ ahead! Based on a Linux Steam screenshot, posted by Matthew Bailey,  it shows Dota-2 as ‘available‘ in the steam library.

Although no official statement is given by Valve. We can only expect ‘Dota-2‘ to run on Linux eventually…


With our hopes up high, I would like to send you an invitation for ‘Dota-2 “(currently windows – future linux support expected). The first 50 comments on this post will receive an invite by mail with all the information about playing on Steam. Tell me in your post “What linux game you like best?!”.

Encourage your fellow Linux friends to respond! – Good Luck!

    So far Team Fortress 2 or maybe Guns of Icarus Online? No wait Crusader Kings II! Yeah that’s it. I just love that game:)

    I’m really enjoying Serious Sam (and outside of Steam, Minecraft and Urban Terror).

    Transport Tycoon (especially OpenTTD) and the classic Unreal Tournament are still my favourites :)

    I am completely addicted to Digital paint 2.

    http://digitalpaint.org/news.php (for linux too)

    At first look it seems like a standard FPS (based on modified quake2 engine) however once you get the hang of it you become almost jedi like, you can semi fly and there is an almost wipeout element to it.

    In fact now when I play any PS3 game / high end game (such as TF2) they seem so slow and boring – I normally only play for about 10 mins before going back to dp2. I get about 800 fps in the game but its not just that is the way the game is played that makes it.

    I can finally say my favorite Linux game is Psychonauts. Just worked my way to level 101 for the first time.

    Been playing CS:S Zombie/Gungame, TF2, Urban Terror, and The Cave. Still working my way through the Humble Bundles.

    Oh to limit my choices to a favourite game. Right now I would have to say Counter-Strike: Source and oddly enough, Guns of Icarus, and The Cave.

    I just finished playing Postal 2 which was hilarious, though the game I’ve spent most time playing would have to be on Minecraft (Hopefully getting The Cave soon)!

    My favorite would probably be Killing Floor.

    But Bastion, Anomaly, SPAZ, and Serious Sam 3 are all close nominations.

    From all Steam games i’d probably say crusader kings 2, though I dislike having to buy all those DLCs. But alltogether, just like ‘hi there’, nothing tops the fun i’ve had with Dungeon Crawl: Stone Soup. (Dwarf Fortress coming close though)

    Team Fortress 2 is the game I play the most often. I’ll have to add Amnesia to the list, as it’s one of the most engrosing games I’ve ever played. It gives me the creeps so much that I rarely play it…

    sferguson203 March 3, 2013 at 13:00 -

    Within Steam the most enjoyable game so far is TF2, outwith Steam it has to be minecraft.

    I am looking forward to Kentucky Route Zero when my wallet allows me to purchase it. :)
