Desura & Indie Royale Parent Bankrupt

Bad Juju, parent company of both Desura and Indie Royale, has filed for bankruptcy protection, reports Gamasutra, with the news coming just a couple of weeks after reports of missed royalty payments to developers. The situation is a bit cloudy at the moment, as they state that Bad Juju's head of developer relations says she learned of the news through Twitter, and that the company's CEO told her he was instructed by lawyers not to answer any questions right now. They also note that the developer of Project Zomboid is recommending that players who haven’t activated Steam keys purchased via Desura do so "as soon as possible."

I wonder what's going to happen to Desura. If the digital distribution platform is taken offline, and everyone loses their libraries, it won't be pretty. This might turn into a small preview of the Steampocalypse.

I've been saying this for years. People prefer ignorance and "convenience" though

some latent part of me still feels this way but, really, this is like not using gmail because you're just anticipating google goes under and takes all your email with it. how likely do we think this is going to be after 11 years of the platform being the center of the pc universe?

just as soon worry about the inevitability of resource depletion and electricity failure preventing you from playing games, too.

Haha, you suckers, playing your "video games" that need electricity. Once the power goes out, I'll still have my table top games I can play. You guys are a bunch of suckers!

Haha, you suckers, playing your "table top games" that need tables. Once you burn your tables for your cook fires and heating, I'll still have my rocks I can play with in the dirt. Suckers...
