Overview

Hanging out with other players is the focus of IMVU, the social interaction free virtual worlds game developed by IMVU Inc. This game is a 3D virtual chat room where players from around the world can get together, and where each player has their own unique avatar. Unlike most other online games, the focus here is strictly on the social aspects of online interaction. If you're looking to slay dragons or grind out quests, look elsewhere. However, if you're looking to meet people from all walks of life and different countries to talk about various topics that interest you, then you've found your niche.

The setup of how IMVU works is simple and straightforward. Players create an avatar to represent themselves within the game's environments. The creation of this avatar is very detailed and there are literally millions of options to customize your avatar to make him unique. Initially, your options are limited by the basic items available, but later on you can purchase items from the game's store. The range of items in the store is staggering as there are currently over ten million items in stock! The reason for this is that players who choose to become VIP members can create new items to be added to the store. The items available for you to customize your character can range from different eye types (demonic, various shades) to clothing to other accessories, such as wings. Players can definitely make sure that their avatar is unique.

Once a player has their avatar, they can enter one of the virtual chat rooms. Two things make the chat room environments unique in IMVU. The first is that there is a limit on how many people can enter a room, usually ten. This helps to keep a room from getting too crowded and making good conversation impossible. The second is that each room has a unique theme and layout. Players can hang out in a haunted hotel where ghosts drift through the walls or they can enter a nightclub where music is pumping and there's a dance floor. Environments are not limited to simple rooms as players can enter different resorts, carnivals, spas, various outdoor environments, and more. Players can also create their own rooms in this socially interactive mmo game. You can decorate your room as you see fit. VIP members get up to ten fully customizable rooms. Each chat room has an info page so you can quickly see if it's a room that you'll be interested in visiting. No matter what your interest, you'll find a room for it as there are tens of thousands going on at any time.

There really is no movement for your avatar in IMVU. When you're in a room, you don't walk around. Instead, there are various spots that you can click on to move to that location. Pick a chair and your avatar is sitting in that chair. Choose a spot on a dance floor and your character is there showing off his dance moves. In addition, your avatar has various emote and action options that they'll  perform when you choose them.

While not a traditional mmo, IMVU allows players to congregate in cozy chat rooms to discuss any topic that they wish. Players can listen to music together, watch videos, explore the room itself, and just hang out and talk to people from around the globe.
