vSide was a music and party-focused social virtual world originally developed by Doppelganger. In 2007, Faust Logic integrated Arcane FX middleware with vSide’s heavily customized Torque Game Engine and contributed a few special effects. Notable effects include the teleportation effect observed when avatars warp between zones and an applause-driven star effect used during performance events.
In 2009, Doppelganger was disbanded and vSide was acquired by ExitReality who hosted the site until 2012.
