  • Homemade DOTA2 Meta data

    Hey everyone!
    We're Them Games, a French game studio. Since we too play way too much DOTA 2 and we're game designers, we thought "Let's create new heroes as a game design exercise" as when we used to try to sneak a mail to Icefrog after giving up on trying to use the War3 editor (this thing was such a mess…)

    So before going at it, we wondered who were the DOTA 2 Heroes. What characters did we need to create to complement the actual hero pool from aesthetic, lore and mechanical standpoints.

    We pulled some stats from all available sources: lore, comics, forums, Heroes’ responses... And thought they should be available to everyone. With the advent of modding, in case you want to create new heroes yourself

    Check them out and if you spot mistakes, ping us on twitter or in the article's comment section (or here) and if you want more content like that, let us know and give us feedback!

    The only thing I got from this is a buzzfeed article aligning hero icons next to the color spectrum. That and that you wanted a free backlink from dev.dota2.

      PA used to be coloured, at least in terms of her features, before Valve retextured her with her waifu face.

      And Lion's probably an Oglodi. Naix is pretty much confirmed as one.
