Buka Entertainment (Russian: Бука) is a Russian software development and distribution company founded in 1993 in Moscow with an additional six branch offices across Russia, located in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Khabarovsk, Novosibirsk, Samara and Nizhniy Novgorod. Buka Entertainment is primarily engaged in the development of titles for the Microsoft Windows platform, but also distributes third-party titles produced within Russia for the same platform and handles the distribution of many titles produced outside of Russia for the Russian market. Buka has a wide distribution network covering most of the CIS.

In 2005, the investment company Finam and EBRD NORUM, North-West and West Russia Regional Venture fund invested in the development of Buka Entertainment.

In 2007, Buka opened two new divisions - BukaSoft, which was formed with the intention of distributing the multimedia products and BukaFilm, which focused on the production, marketing and distribution of DVD movies within Russia.

Buka Entertainment was acquired by Russian developer and publisher 1C Company in 2008.[1]
