Desura, the digital distribution platform that's similar in nature to Valve's Steam client and is popular with indie game studios, has been sold off by Linden Labs.

Linden Labs had acquired Desura in July of 2013 but now they've sold off Desura already. Desura's new home is with Bad Juju Games.

Bad Juju Games does plan to continue developing Desura for Windows, OS X, and Linux platforms -- including new features to come in the months ahead. The press release states, "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."

Bad Juju Games is a game middleware company founded in 2010 that develops the product among offering other services to game developers.
