Ten years ago Dan Bogdanov, Siim Kinnas, Jorgen Matsi, Oliver Oberg and Martin Rääk decided that there group was to be called Beau Monde Network. Quite a lot of things have happened during these ten years.
Beau Monde has been busy doing all kinds of things:
- Developing a strategy game called 2075 AD, which was unfortunately cancelled.
- Developing a 3d role playing adventure called The Cord, which was put on hold.
- Developing a system for creating text-based adventures called TAE. The system is usable.
- Organizing the online game competition Beau Monde Clanwars, which in turn inspired the founding of PLANC.
- Organizing lanparties together with PLANC, Estonian Computer Club and Tartu Computer Club.
- Developing an online game DarkSide:Tetris, which was completed. Competitions ran on several lanparties in Estonia.
- Organizing the first Estonian demoparty The Message 2004 together with the Scene.ee team. We even made a small and silly production called The Suntrix.
- Developing the sequel to DarkSide Tetris called DarkSide Tetris: The Second Block. Tournaments were run in Estonian lanparties for several years.
- Supporting another Estonian game project Looja Valik. The cooperation stopped, but the project continues.
- Developing the DarkSide Tetrise web portal, that gather statistics for DarkSide Tetris: The Second Block games.
Beau Monde celebrates by organizing a followup to the Beau Monde ClanWars event held in 2000. The clans Beau Monde and Candyman will meet again with similar lineups. We then played games like Quake II, Team Fortress Classic and Half-Life Deathmatch. This time, we will add Quake III Arena (we do not acknowledge Quake 4 multiplayer :)), Team Fortress 2 and Half-Life 2 Deathmatch. The lineups are:
