IMTHRU with IMVU
Member Name: mattconnect
Advantages: Cute-ish avatars
Disadvantages: Essentially just pretty graphics
I decided to join IMVU to see what the fuss is all about, plus I got points for this rewards website I have joined for doing so.
~~~WHERE TO BEGIN~~~
Registering is extremely simple and involves you picking an avatar, and then preceding to fill in about four pages of information which takes about five minutes. Once you have done so you can download and install the software!
Installation takes another 5-10 minutes and is a quick and easy step by step process. Once it has installed you are ready to enter the world of IMVU!
~~~INSIDE THE WORLD~~~
Once the programme launches you are met with a great number of tabs, none of which means anything to me... so I decided to just click on "Chat Now!" where I was thrusted into an empty house... with no one to talk to. A quick tutorial teaches you how to move and interact but after that you are all on your own. After one person entered and left after one minute, I decided to leave and find a room with existing people.
Having accidentally selected a female avatar to begin with I set off roaming this new world which looks like a fairytale land crossed with an Alice In wonderland theming. I accidentally (why all the accidents!?) clicked on this action spot where I started riding this dragon... which was perhaps the highlight of the visit.
I finally found some people and decided to interact with them. Forgetting I was a female avatar I started flirting with another female avatar which was met with dire results. I was kicked out the room within five minutes.
Attempting to edit my look and so on, I found that many options were locked and of course in order to get the best things, one has to pay. After spending about thirty minutes on IMVU and testing about all the features that exist, the programme is basically a chat engine with pretty moving graphics. Why not just go on Omegle and imagine yourself in a fairytale land? It would save your computer some space and CPU whilst running.
IMVU does not interest me at all. It is along the same lines as Habbo Hotel and Second Life, the latter of which is both graphically better and has a larger world where you can move about (although it is more limiting to free users). IMVU has absolutely no advantage in the virtual world market, and I don't see it being attractive at all. I shall not be returning to this chat engine and recommend you not to start! Save time, save PC space, save disappointment. AVOID.
