Desura was an alternative video game distribution platform, similar to the likes of Steam but some games on the site were DRM-free.

In June 2015, Desura's parent company Bad Juju Games filed for bankruptcy.[1][2] In October 2016, it was announced that Desura had been acquired by OnePlay. The website is offline since October/November 2016 (according to Wayback Machine) and a new game distribution platform is to be put up in place by OnePlay in "first quarter of 2017"[3].

In June 2020, the website returned with an "opening soon" announcement for "a convenient platform for you to enjoy all your favorite online games in one place". According to a thread on Reddit, the site is now owned by a Russian guy trying to build a Flash game hub.[4]
