IMVU is a social focused website that is available online for free through your browser with mobile apps (iOS and Android) also available. The game launched back in 2004 and has grown rapidly in that time to tens of million registered accounts and millions of items in its virtual catalogue (most of them designed by users).

IMVU allows members to create their own 3D avatars, meet people, create items, participate in games and chat in a safe environment.

It is important to note that while IMVU is open to users as young as 13 the major age demographic is between 18 and 25. IMVU does restrict access to accounts based on the age they provide upon signup to ensure the experience is as safe as possible. The game also has users from a wide range of locations thanks to its multi-language support.

In IMVU you’ll spend your time meeting other people, customising your avatar, playing games, connecting with groups, chatting on the forums or creating your own virtual content.

Content creation plays a major role in the online world of IMVU with players having the ability to create their own content and sell it through the IMVU marketplace for credits. Some players choose to focus solely on this aspect of gameplay since they love the creation process. While other players choose to ignore content creation completely and focus on the social side of the game.

The IMVU economy uses an IMVU credit system which users spend on items for their avatar and account. You’ll earn some of these credits for completing activities and your participation on the IMVU website. To get large amounts of IMVU credits though you’ll need to make a purchase through their website but this is definitely not required to get the full experience.

Summary:

  • Online social focused game.
  • Free to play with paid options.
  • Create your own content.
  • Designed with older gamers in mind but does facilitate younger players.
  • Great variety of activities.

      Hi kaja , this game contains some kind of bad scenes , if you’re okay with that and you think that you can play it , go ahead ! It’s just you have to know that you’ll be playing with real people not computer like in sims . So you know things can happen
