Second Life maker Linden Lab acquires Desura

Indie- and mod-centric service isn't going away

Linden Lab, the company behind the bizarre, fascinating virtual world Second Life and a bunch of other stuff you won't recognize by name has picked up digital distribution platform Desura. The service "will continue uninterrupted" as this deal pans out, promises Linden Lab.

An unexpected move, to be sure, but at the same time, it's not like Desura was making any real moves on its own -- and I say that as someone who liked its independently-minded focus. For a while now, Desura has just been doing its own thing. We'll see where the deal takes it.

According to Linden CEO Rod Humble, "This acquisition gives us a global platform for serving creative developers of all kinds, and we're looking forward to growing both Desura's global community of gamers and its fantastic portfolio of thousands of games, mods, and other content. Our aim is to invest and support the Desura team in making it the most open and developer-friendly platform in the world."
