Bad Juju Acquires Desura from Linden Lab

7 comments by INtense! on Nov 11th, 2014

The move comes after several months of coordinated planning by the companies to ensure uninterrupted operation of the Desura service as well as a comprehensive roadmap of new features that will significantly benefit both its users and game developers during the upcoming months and beyond.

Linden Lab has begun an ambitious project to create the next generation of virtual worlds, while continuing to improve Second Life®, and grow Blocksworld®. Transitioning Desura to Bad Juju Games enables the company to enhance the focus of its resources on these priorities, while ensuring that spirit of Desura's original vision lives on and game developers and players on the platform continue to be well served.

In addition to development of its own game titles, Bad Juju Games has spent the majority of the past few years building state-of-the-art big data backed tools, technology and interactive solutions for several "AAA" game titles in the Console and Mobile Gaming markets including popular franchises such as Call of Duty®, Tekken® and Ace Combat® to name a handful. Today, the Bad Juju Team has completely re-architected its technology focusing on an extensive assortment of game enhancing features that would otherwise be cost prohibitive for Developers to justify on a limited budget or while facing rather aggressive timetables.

As the Gaming industry continues to evolve at a dramatic rate, Bad Juju Games is dedicated to providing solutions for Mobile, Console and PC based Developers that significantly level the playing field and provide many of the core services that Gamers have come to expect from top grossing game titles. Through its acquisition of Desura, Bad Juju Games will be offering its Developers at no additional costs, the core modules and services such as Leaderboards, Achievements, Cloud Storage, Player Stats and Profiles and its Business Intelligence that are also fully cross-platform.

But not only will Game Developers benefit from news of the Bad Juju acquisition, as the dedicated Gamers choosing to make their purchases from Desura can expect rather significant overhauls in the Desura experience, major price savings, rewards, an expanded game title catalog and a fully native cross-platform game management client application that Desura has been lacking. "From the start, Desura has made great strides to deliver Gamers a viable game publishing service offering a wide selection of games not found on Steam®", commented Tony Novak, President of Bad Juju Games. "Now, our team at Bad Juju is tasked with significantly raising that bar - An effort that we intend to approach while continuing to embrace the DRM Free movement and principles that has made Desura a contender amongst the limited field of digital and PC Games Publishers."

"This marks a very important milestone for Bad Juju Games to reach the greatest breadth of Game Developers and Gamers whom all share a fanatical passion for gaming as a whole," continued Novak.

"Bringing back the ‘old school' game titles that have been lost but not forgotten, finding new emerging titles and tapping into the wealth of Asian import games are just a few of the efforts that Bad Juju will be actively pursuing as Desura is absolutely here to make a very loud splash in the market."

Freedom should never cost you an arm or a leg, unless you're giving them up for freedom but it should never cost you anything! Which is why we have four fantastically free games for you to enjoy without slapping down your favourite righty and lefty limb.

Game number one is Diamond Deeps for Windows. Diamond Deeps is an arcade action game that involves a lone miner collecting diamonds from within a dungeon. Collecting the diamonds is easy enough, but avoiding the angry ghost chasing you makes it much, much harder! Luckily you also have a freeze-trap in addition to the mining pick in your bag of tools so you can freeze the ghost and evade them as much as possible while trying to gather the gems as quickly as you can.

Number two is New Outbreak for Windows. New Outbreak is 2D Top Down survival game. Sandbox open world offers you many ways how to survive. You will need basic needs such as food or water from looting buildings and houses. When all the supplies are gone, your only chance is hunting and farming. Trade guns or craft various things.

Thirdly we have Dungeon Nightmares for Windows. Every night you go to bed, you find yourself in an endless nightmare that you must escape from. The dungeon is littered with items for you to collect, including Candles that help light up your path. But be warned, you will not be alone in there. You must survive each night and progress to another to find more clues about this nightmare. What do these nightmares mean? Who is that girl? this is something for you to find out…

Lastly we have The Princess for Windows. The Princess is a top down RPG where within the game where you must save a princess who was kidnapped by monsters and taken to a pyramid! Save her!

Come back next week for more FREEDOOOMMM!!!~
