IMVU is an original instant messaging tool that lets you chat with people from all over the globe in a 3D environment, instead of the plain, text-only chat room we're all used to.
In IMVU, your personality is not represented by just a simple nickname: it's a fully three-dimensional, Sims-style 3D character you can customize in many ways: skin color, hair style, clothes, pets, actions and animations, etc.
As unique as it sounds, IMVU works just like any other IM client. You start by registering a user account on the program's website, picking your avatar and customizing his or her appearance. Then simply join the network and look for some interesting people to chat with, either on your personal space or in one of the public chat rooms.
Besides just chatting, IMVU also lets you perform certain actions with your avatar. Just right-click on the character and you'll open a context menu with all the options, classified into several categories: movements, moods, expressions and more. IMVU also features a credits system that enables you to acquire new apparel for your avatar and customize the appearance of your hair, eyes and more.
IMVU is undeniably very original in certain aspects. But this originality sometimes makes it a bit confusing. For example, chats are hard to follow on IMVU's speech bubbles, so you'll eventually end up following the conversation in the text box – like any other IM client. Also, moving around the 3D space is difficult and sometimes frustrating, as it can get really slow depending on your internet connection.
IMVU is an original IM client that lets you meet people, chat and make friends in a highly detailed 3D environment.
