dbo:abstract
  • Terra Est Quaestuosa (or TEQ) is a Web-based massively multiplayer online game (MMOG) that has been operating since 1998 and has been played by tens of thousands of people. It is an online strategy game in which players must create, manage and expand a country through war and trade. Together with Earth 2025 it was the first that made the step from Bulletin board system-based "multiplayer" games to the World Wide Web, starting a new genre of games. Both games are based on the bulletin board game Barren Realms Elite. The game was founded 1998 by Niels Schoot and Bastiaan Berendsen, and is still being actively developed. Although the game was publicly available in 1998 it was called a "BETA" until March 2000 TEQ reached its peak popularity in 2000 during the ".com bubble." The media (hungry for internet-related news) caught attention of the relatively new concept of massive online gaming. Many Dutch newspapers and magazines wrote stories about the game and concept. As a result of this, many players joined the game, making it even more popular. TEQ is less popular today, but hundreds of players still log in every day and TEQ remains the top-rating game on Multiplayer Online Games Directory. (en)
