Montreal, Quebec– Alchemic Dream, experts in MMO community management, announced today that Monde Media Solutions and Laboratoires Bug-Tracker, leading providers of localization and quality assurance services, will join forces to create the first Virtual Universe Consortium.

Letting the development and design teams concentrate on the development cycle, the consortium share resources and knowledge to build solutions designed for the online gaming publishers and developers:

A one-stop-shop for cultural adaption, localization and translation, improved community management, increased customer retention through outstanding customer support, role-playing events and community entertainment, monetization implantation and analysis, deep game-play and focus group analysis, robust load&stress testing, functionality and compatibility testing and automation testing.
