Made by ModDB/IndieDB, Desura is a digital distribution app which makes it easy to buy, download and play great games and mods.

Please visit Desura for more information. I have also included our official launch announcement below:

When I visit most digital distribution stores I think damn this site is ace, I can get and play games quick and easy without screwing around with readme's (who reads them seriously!?) BUT.... where are the mods and user generated content in these stores? Why can't I post and read reviews on game pages and why can't the game developers provide a little behind the scenes insight like news, videos and images beyond a basic few? I'm a PC gamer dammit... I should be able to do things only PC gamers can!

Introducing Desura, our take on how we believe game digital distribution should be done. Our aim with Desura is to provide access to the latest, greatest and new/old games available on the market. We are 100% indie-friendly and the only digital distribution service out there with the ambitious aim of supporting user-made mods for games. While we only have a few titles available at the moment, we look forward to filling it with the best of the best (and encourage devs of all shapes and sizes to get in touch). Expect new games and mods daily, as we add great titles from years gone by and attempt to get all new releases on Desura.

Gamers, on Desura you have a voice, ranging from reviewing your favourite games, presenting ideas and criticisms (constructive ones) to the developers and interacting with the rest of the community.

Developers, you are in charge and have complete control over your games on Desura. Including but not limited to how you distribute, test, patch, market and support your games. Post news, images, videos and other updates regularly to engage with the community and build the biggest fan base you can, just as you already do on ModDB and IndieDB.

We still have a long road ahead (and a nifty list of features coming which really sets Desura apart) so expect to hear a ton from us as we integrate Desura into the ModDB and IndieDB and make it super easy to get games or mods on the service. Feedback is welcome, so grab the Desura installer today and start idling (+ getting games / mods of course!)

I'd also like to shout out to all of the indie developers (and mod teams) who have taken the time to get their game on the service. You should buy all of these games and support indies and the ModDB and IndieDB team. Your help goes a long way.

Finally, for everyone who has been involved since the launch of our private beta last year, thank you for your support. It turns out that creating a kick ass digital distribution service is a bit like racing a 300 pound gorilla while dressed in a banana suit. It’s not easy and we haven’t won the battle yet, but we’re pealing away and approaching the finish line.
