Errr, this game was added to various pc magazines for free already in the past. Why limit the new sales to any world zone/invitation :o

You guys know that it`s working as an open invitation to use piratebay or other pirate sites, right ? :o

i found this invitation only release quite ironic ... funny how a game that would have been easily accessible in his own time , is now a pain to even buy XD

"N/A IN YOUR REGION" ?
What kinf of discrimination is this? Shame on you Desura! Nowadays, everybodys is dealing with kicking GNU/linux users. GOG, Ubuntu and now Desura!

It says "Invite only release." here. Perhaps they will release it worldwide later?

This is the original source code of the game ported to Linux. The no sound was an issue with not being able to get the sound in videos working correctly. You might want to try downloading and using FS2_Open which uses the Freespace 1 & 2 data files but has a much more updated engine for the game.

Thanks, I hadn't known about FS2Open before. However, it requires a retail Freespace 2 installation, which I don't have, and I don't really feel like shelling out another 6 bucks for it.
