Its spring 2009 in Vice City, a paradise made up of palm trees, sandy beaches and neon lit buildings. It may look like heaven, but scratch beneath the surface and you'll see its really hell.
Drugs circulate the streets, gangland wars are a common sight and the police force are struggling to fight in the bid to bring peace to the streets.
PLEASE NOTE - This is my first attempt at the map that I made using parts of the LC map. I am going to improve it when I have more time.
Mainland Vice - The west island is the only area available to the player at the start of the game after the bridges were destroyed by Hurricane Dick. Notable areas on this island include Downtown Vice, Little Bogota, Little Havana and Escobar International Airport. There is a variety of architecture on this island ranging from skyscrapers to chalets and huts.
Vice Point - The north island is the second area available to the player, Vice Point is the main residential area of the city. Some notable landmarks in Vice Point include the Vice Point Mall and Vercetti Memorial Stadium.
Ocean Beach - This is the last area unlocked on the map. Made up of high rise apartment blocks, hotels, bars and clubs, Ocean Beach is the most glamourous area of Vice City.
Danny Morella has been on the run from mafia kingpin Harvey Noto, head of the Messina Mafia Family in Liberty City. After being forced out of LC, Morella has now got to try to rebuild in Vice City, and that won't be easy in a place where money is power and image is everything.
I have a basic story idea already which I will write up and post ASAP. If anyone has any suggestions or would like to help me write the story, let me know in a comment or message me.
Danny Morella (Protagonist) - Aged 32, Morella is on the run from Harvey Noto after helping to steal a shipment of cocaine for the Lupisella Family Syndicate back in Liberty City. Starting out with nothing, Morella faces an uphill battle throughout the story as he fights for his safety and tries to get new allies in order to have a fighting chance to avoid the hit Harvey Noto has put on him.
Harvey Noto (Primary Antagonist) - Head of the Messina Crime Syndicate in LC, Noto is in Vice City having tracked down Morella so he take revenge on the man who stole from him.
Leon Willis - Starting as a local street hood, Leon first appears when Danny helps to save him from the police after robbing a liquor store. In return for his help, Leon gives Danny jobs early on in the game. The first safehouse available to the player is Leons flat after mission 3. Leon's friend bonus is back up when needed.
Fredo Volpe - A police informant and capo for the Messina Family, Danny does some work for Volpe in exchange for information about Harvey Noto's plans. The reason for Volpe helping Danny is to get revenge on Noto for killing his brother for supposedly being a snitch when the informant is in fact Fredo himself.
Tomaz Galado - Galado is the Mayor of Vice City. With the elections approaching, Galado hires Danny to help sabotage his rival's campains. Galado will be an important ally to Danny in the story.
Julias O' Brin - Julias is the cities attorney and the secondary antagonist in the game. After hiring Danny to help capture some of the cities most wanted, Julias strikes a deal with Harvey in which the two team up and put in all their effort bring Danny down.
G-Whizz (real name Sean Mitchell) - G-Whizz is friend of Leon and gives Danny missions early on the game. A wannabe rapper/gangster, G-Whizz is in fact a bit of an idiot, often putting himself and others in dangerous situations.
Returning from IV
Jerry Kapowitz - After finding diamonds in LC whilst being a hobo, Kapowitz has moved down to VC and opened up a series of gun shops around the city. Kapowitz first employs Danny as protection but the two soon become friends. Kapowitz's friend bonus is cheaper weapons.
Phil Bell - Phil moved down to VC after the Pegorino Crime Syndicate disbanded. Phil is now a hitman and employs to Danny to carry out hits on his behalf. Phil's mission's are similar to the Fixer's/Wade Johnson's missions in IV.
The Protagonists - Niko Bellic, Johnny Klebitz and Luis Lopez will all make cameos in this concept.
