•    SACRAMENTO, CA /May 1, 2009 – Metaverse Mod Squad today announced that Reel FX Entertainment has engaged it for the community management, moderation, and customer support needs of Webosaurs, a dino-centric virtual world set to be unleashed in summer 2009.

•    The only online destination where KIDS rule the earthTM, Webosaurs will feature customizable 3D-dinosaur avatars, a game-filled prehistoric environment, and educational “Webosodes” from international wildlife expert Nigel Marven.  The site will offer safe social networking, action-packed gaming, and edutainment for kids ages 5-10.
