Desura`s dead
« on: June 06, 2015, 11:03:58 AM »
It`s been sort of on the cards for a while now, but (aptly named) Bad Juju finally threw in the towel.

It`s a shame,  I quite liked the original Desura - it wasn`t  as upmarket as other stores and had loads of crappy content, but that was part of its charm, in a true DIY/indie spirit. Plus it was always nice to have another DRM-Free option out there.

I'm not entirely surprised but I'll be annoyed if I lose access to the games I bought on there. Some of them aren't available anywhere else.

Just download the lot - most of their games don`t need that silly "client". I had quite a few games there and only one required it.
