Retro Dota

Available in English, ру́сский язы́к, 简体中文, and português brasileiro.

Long ago, Invoker mastered no fewer than 27 spells. Can you master them as well?
Or, if luck is more your game, perhaps you'd rather delve into the seedy past of the shopkeeper, when he was known as the Gambler!

  • Play as the original version of Invoker, with a full arsenal of 27 spells!
    The order in which Quas, Wex, and Exort are cast matters, so be ready to put your mind (and fingers) to the test.
  • Roll the dice with Gambler, a hero that was removed from Dota long ago!
    Should he be reintroduced to Dota 2, or are some things best left forgotten?
  • A brand new arena map, designed specifically to encourage constant skirmishes and action!
    Or, if you would prefer to stay true to Dota's roots, you can play on the full standard map as well.
  • Vote on custom game settings so you can play Retro Dota with modern conveniences!
    Lower the cooldown on Invoke, reduce mana costs on everything, or add another slot in which to store invoked spells!

Lastly, we would like to extend a special thanks to all the members of the IRC modding community, especially those who provided libraries or tools used in the creation of this custom game.

The tooltip for invoke (the spell combo list) is broken and has its frame show fully but not the list.

Hi, I'm the author of DOTA2 AI Fun, it's a custom game aiming at adapting the DotA AI Fun map into DOTA2, fun heroes and fun items. I'm wondering if some kind of cooperation is possible. Please add me.

Retro Dota should now be functional in Dota version 7.00+. Sorry for the delay!

Absolutely cool. May be any updates in future? I really want to play for old Pudge-pusher with corpses and flies! :steammocking:

@1228: Thanks for the reminder; I'll update the shop when I get a chance!

Also moonshards isn't in the secret shop as well. The only way to purchase one of these items is by shadowing the item in question (for example for butterfly you have to shadow the talisman or anything the talisman is part of)
