Created by Australian video gaming companies in 2009 under stealth development for two years, Desura is a DigitalDistribution platform for computer games. Although it's not as well-known compared to digital distribution services such as Steam (it's picking some attention though), but Desura does have its own merits to stand out from other services. What sets Desura apart from other digital distribution services is they offer development tools for any would-be video game developers to create their own computer game and allow those to alpha-fund games (as in buy an early build of a game while it's under development), perform beta-testing, pre-release promotions, and more. Desura also offers user-created {{game mod}}s, and DownloadableContent. Desura is also {{DRM}}-agnostic with a wide number of DRM-free games, and does not by itself offer DRM services, though publishers and developers may choose to include DRM on Desura-distributed games. Although main focus of the service caters more to [[IndieGame independently-made games]], there are a few games from mainstream publishers and developers also available. They also do IndieRoyale bundles. The distribution service has seen a fair share of ownership changes. In July 2013, [[VideoGame/SecondLife Linden Lab]] announced that they have acquired Desura. Almost sixteen months later, they sold the service to [[http://www.badjuju.com/ Bad Juju Games,]] who quickly introduced a new Desura logo based on their company's logo.

Quick edit.
The distribution service has seen a fair share of ownership changes. In July 2013, [[VideoGame/SecondLife Linden Labs]] announced that they have acquired Desura. Almost sixteen months later, they sold the service to [[http://www.badjuju.com/ Bad Juju Games,]] who quickly introduced a new Desura logo based on their company's logo.
