Amnesia is the most popular game (in terms of activity) on Desura & ModDB at the moment. 75% off to celebrate! Offer ends in three days.

Did you know that more than 100 custom stories has been released and that another 80 are in the works?
Did you know that you can now download the Mac version (external, none client) on Desura?

Amazing.

I would probably rather buy it if it was on Steam for this much... I might think about it.

So you are going to go ahead and assume that I am crying? When I think it would have been better on Steam? Jeez.

It's $20, why don't you buy it for me? Then you can stop complaining about how I am saying that "I" would rather buy it through Steam. "I" would rather it through Steam because it comes fully Steam supported. Yeah, I know you could just add it as a non-steam game but oh well. So, calm down would you?

Finally I can get Amnesia on Desura instead of having it as a separate install due to being so kind as to pre-order.
Say, is there a trick to finding mods through the Desura client?

If you're on Linux, there's currently no mod support via the client: Moddb.com

Best to just go straight to Amnesia's page on ModDB.com (I can't link to it here, as the domain is rewritten to desura.com), or Frictionalgames.com

Thanks, I nearly bought the game for Desura, just to install mods more easily. However I am one of these people running Linux :(

With the client going open source (Desurium), it could be a possibility for the future (I hope so, we're missing one of Desura's defining features) - though I think that they are concentrating on getting a release of Desurium out first, before they add anything.

I have a question: does the Desura version of Amnesia support different languages (Steam version does...)?
If so, it should be visible on the games profile page.

Yeah it supports the same languages. Will look into adding the language info to the page!

Hm.

As the top poster has said, if it was on Steam...

I don't like having multiple clients. Now adays I need Origin, Steam, Desura, and who knows what else in the future. There needs to be a singular DD platform. I don't want it to be GFWL, and I don't want it to be Origin.

And Steam already has the entire PC market captivated. Desura is cool, but I can't see myself buying from it.

Actually with Desura the client is 100% optional. Unlike steam it doesn't force you to run their DRM software and have an internet connection to play the games you have already paid for.

I'm fairly new to the Indie community. Can I ask what is so special about Steam? I have it installed, but haven't yet used it, because I know a lot of people who don't like steam. They say there are too many bugs in it. I a long time Sims player, and I know there have been a lot of problems downloading the Sims 3 expansions through Steam.

On the other hand, I'm pretty new to Desura. But, I love Desura's games. The quality alone, is reason enough to buy their games. I've been playing Amnesia and, and totally love the eerie atmosphere of being alone in a falling down Asylum. Playing it in the dark, using headphones, completely pulls me into the game, and I feel as though I am the one trying to escape from thaat creepy place, while trying to hold on to my sanity! for me, this is reason enough to buy the game from Desura. What's wrong with buying games from more than one host site, anyway? Does it mess up the game, or do the games cause not work well when bought and downloaded from different sources? So far, I haven't had any problems with any of my games. And, Desura's prices, to me, sems very reasonable. I

I'm going to go ahead and buy the full version of Amnesia. I've really been playing the free trial version, and loving it. I find that $20.00 is a very reasonable price for such a well made, high quality game. There are many groups on the Internet selling games for much higher prices, and their products aren't nearly as good as here on Desura. PC Gaming is my number one passtime. I never could get hooked on TV. I loathe the commercials! So, all I can say, at this point, is; "Way to go Desura! Keep the great games coming!"

Absolutely! I pay this much, and sometimes even more for Casual Games. Desura's games are far superior in quality.

Can anyone answer for me what kind of DRM it comes with? Hopefully none.

For older titles (but they have some new ones too), there ARE alternatives to Steam, and MUCH better ones in my opinion. I try to buy all of my titles from GOG.com, as every single title they sell comes DRM-free, which is The Only Way they should come.

Desura does not require you to run the client to play the games.

Edit: Hmm, I guess the reply button doesn't work properly? This was supposed to be a reply.

Thanks thebum06 for the info.

Does anyone know what kind, if any, of DRM it does/doesn't use? That's REALLY important to me. I went to the main site, and couldn't find any data in that regard.

I bough Amnesia in a Store as a DVD. I was surprised. It hadn't any kind of DRM. I testet it out by "copying" the DVD as an Iso File (with a legal and free Programm.) I'm still able to install & Play the Game from the Iso.

So as an DVD > no DRM. But i don't know if there is an exception for Online Distribution.

It shouldn't have any DRM. The boxed version has a simple offline CD-key check, but the digital versions shouldn't even have that I think.

Oh, yes. I forgot. It has an CD-key check. XD
But it worked also with the Iso.

This game is normally $80???

With 75% off during the sale for a $20 price, this looks to be the most expensive retail game I've ever seen. I don't even think console games go above $60 brand new during the first week of release.

Even with sale starting on the sixteenth of April stating that it will end in three days, a $20 price tag on the eighteenth (2 days after the sale starts) seems somewhat confusing to me.

Too bad I couldn't take advantage of the sale.

Why is the price now $20? It was $5? Sale ended early?

As far as I know, 16 + 3 equals 19. And you guys said the sale will be for three days! This is the 3rd day, but surprise! No god damn sale anymore.... Seriously, I don't think I'm the only disappointed one! Please, be fair and don't lie to us, guys!

Midnight on the 16th + 72 hours = midnight on the 19th, which was about 13 hours ago. The sale may have ended early (assuming it went on sale midnight of the 16th) but even if it didn't we'd be late to the party.

I'm disappointed too (especially since the first I've seen of this was an ad sent to me five minutes ago, AFTER the sale ended) but they didn't lie as far as I can tell

Desura's time is UTC +10 hours (they're in Melbourne, Australia), so their days end ~7-9 hours before Europe, and 15-19 hours before the USA.

Desura doesn't have many interesting games... I'm using Desura only because of the mods.

Desura uses mods and you don't have to sign in? I like Steam in general (I bought the valve collection), but that's pretty cool.
