Caleb Booker of Clever Zebra, and formerly of the leading virtual worlds news site Metaversed.com, has his quick notes on the Twinity beta here. Some highlights:
You customize your avatar in much the same way (except that you can upload a picture of your face and map it quickly and easily) and you get a nice default selection of prefab faces/clothes/bodies just kicking around. The interface seems to be far easier than Second Life’s
and a few clarifications:
I couldn’t figure out how to build
Patience, Caleb… 😉 That’s coming soon.
I was reminded recently that Twinity was in open beta
Small correction: Twinity is still in closed beta.
Thanks for the link!
