Not So Lively: Chronicles of Day One on Google’s Virtual World

First steps

The initial experience looks just like IMVU or Meez: you get to design your avatar even before you download the client application, which works inside your browser. Allegedly Firefox is supported too; I’ve tried it with IE7, and the download doesn’t take long. In the mean time, I had the opportunity to browse through all the options to create my avatar. Being — like all Google products! — a Beta version, there are perhaps 40 or 50 available options (not the “millions” announced by Google reps) and they can be somewhat configured, but the choices are confusing and very, very limited. Nothing like the creative fun I had with Meez, some time ago (and which also have a virtual-world-based-on-web-embeddable-rooms, of course).
