[EN]: Desura’s parent company, Bad Juju, has filed for bankruptcy after months of complaints from game developers not receiving payments on time since late last year.

Bad Juju has been facing various problems (office relocation, hospitalization of company CEO) since it acquired Desura from Linden Lab late last year which have caused delays.

The announcement surprised Lisa Morrison, the one in charge of developer relations at Bad Juju. She told Gamasutra: “I asked Tony [Novak, CEO of Bad Juju] for confirmation and all he could tell me was, ‘The lawyers have said I can’t say anything or answer any questions yet, but yes it’s true.’”

Bad Juju became synonymous with bankruptcy today after Graeme Boxall, in charge of game deals site Indie Royale, tweeted “If you Google, Bad Juju bankruptcy, you find some very unfortunate news.” The message leads to this site: https://www.inforuptcy.com/community/bankruptcy-attorneys-and-news-15-12823-Bad-JuJu-Games–Inc—cacbke_1706672.

[ES]: La empresa matriz de Desura, Bad Juju, se ha declarado en bancarrota tras meses de quejas de desarrolladores de juegos que no reciben pagos a tiempo desde finales del año pasado.

Bad Juju ha enfrentado varios problemas (reubicación de oficina y hospitalización de su gerente general), desde que adquirió Desura del dueño previo Linden Lab a finales del año pasado, que han causado retrasos.

El anuncio sorprendió a Lisa Morrison, la encargada de relaciones con desarrolladores de juegos de Bad Juju. Ella le dijo a Gamasutra: “Le pregunté a Tony [Novak, director general de Bad Juju] para confirmación y lo único que podía decirme fue: “‘Los abogados han dicho que no puedo decir nada ni contestar ninguna pregunta, pero sí es verdad'”.

Bad Juju se convirtió en sinónimo de bancarrota después que Graeme Boxall, a cargo del sitio web de ventas de juegos independientes Indie Royale, tuiteó “Si googlean “Bad Juju bankruptcy” (bancarrota Bad Juju), ustedes encontrarán algunas noticias muy lamentables”. El mensaje lleva a este sitio: https://www.inforuptcy.com/community/bankruptcy-attorneys-and-news-15-12823-Bad-JuJu-Games–Inc—cacbke_1706672.
