Yeah, I've come to really like them after they started hosting standalone downloads in parallel to the client. They've beaten GamersGate to become my second favourite DD after GOG.com.

I didn't realize that you can direct download from Desura - where is that in the client?

Its not in client. If you purchased\activated game on desura you can go to its page and you will see Purchased downloads section with links to standalone installers (and bonus content if there is some).
Solution is not best (Indieroyales key pages is more useful as well as IGS wallet) but still makes client not required

There is a slightly more consolidated way of downloading the standalone versions. Your CD key page (https://secure.desura.com/cart/cdkeys) is roughly equivalent to a "library/shelf/game wallet" and has download links for the games even if they don't have or require a CD key.

It's a bit hidden away for some reason. The Desura site really could do with a bit of a redesign...

I think I'd have to say my favorite so far was Caster. That game was so slick to me. A bit sparse and simple, but the controls and upgrades were pretty cool.

P.S. Hello, everyone.
Check out my games in development on my Twitter here.

For me it would surely be the Mobiloid. IMVHO THE best of all the games offered here in the past.

Oh, and yeah, "long live Desura" though the Desura client could use some work.

It's awesome to hear about your favorite games, it really helps us in the selection process.

Yes, though I love Desura, it is really broken sometimes.
