Loading time is ridiculoous long. Got time to brew coffee before downloads completes.
It was completely empty of people when I was there. Wonder where is everyone else.
Explore around for 10 mins.. Saw Twinity Logos everywhere. Dont know what it was supposed to be for me to do. Video works but I am not singaporean and not interested in National Day Singapore.
Of a population of 4 million people in Singapore dont know how many people will use this.
What are you guys at Twinity thinking?
