Desura, a digital distribution platform for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS games, has been acquired by the developers of Second Life, Linden Lab.Desura has been around for quite some time, but they never managed to get enough traction with new titles. Still, this platform has been a good startup for many Linux games and developers.
“Desura’s talented team, thriving business, and impressive technology are a great fit for Linden Lab. This acquisition gives us a global platform for serving creative developers of all kinds, and we’re looking forward to growing both Desura’s global community of gamers and its fantastic portfolio of thousands of games, mods, and other content.”
“Our aim is to invest and support the Desura team in making it the most open and developer-friendly platform in the world,” said Rod Humble, CEO of Linden Lab.
The Desura users have been assured that the services will continue to run uninterrupted and the transition to a new management will not affect gamers in any way.
