Thank you all. It's a pleasure that three designers had voted to this MP. I will put a lot of effort to try to make this more promising MP of DYOM Awards 2015 become the best MP of DYOM Awards 2016.

V FOR VINEGAR FULL REVEAL: Click on the spoiler to see it.

 

 

V FOR VINEGAR: FULL REVEAL

Content of this manual

2. Gameplay
3. Synopsis
3a. Characters
3b. Plot
4. Final considerations
1. INTRODUCTION
V for Vinegar is a mission pack in the third person with elements of action/adventure and survival. It is developed by The Half-Blood Prince, and is expected to launch in 2016.
The player controls Yuji through the state of San Andreas in a setting "almost apocalyptic" state in 2013 and your mission is to escort the young Mari to the base of an enemy organization. The player must defend himself against hunters, policemen, soldiers and members of other organizations, using weapons and methods of improved infiltration like stealth. The player can also combine what he find on the street to form strategies to pass by enemies that are forward.
V for Vinegar won the most promising MP Prize in DYOM Awards 2015.
2. GAMEPLAY
V for Vinegar uses a third-person perspective. The fight develops primarily on hand-to-hand. While weapons can be searched, your ammo is scarce. It was assured that, in V for Vinegar, will never result in the player start running and shooting automatically and randomly. Health does not regenerate, forcing the player to be more conservative. The emphasis on exposing the fragility of the player helps to increase pressure to survive in a precarious world.
The player controls Yuji, while Mari, controlled by AI, stay close to Yuji for much of the MP. But V is Vinegar is not "a big escort mission". Mari is a supporting character instead of a fragile victim: for example, she can warn Yuji about enemies getting close and help him throwing molotovs and grenades at the enemies. Mari could die, but can also fight to a certain level, using weapons or her cunning to escape danger.
During the game, the player is forced to confront different types of enemies, from police to hunters on the street. Each type of enemy the AI has very similar, but not equal. For example: hunters, who are street thieves, attack you randomly and have worst life and accuracy. Police and soldiers form tactics that the MP himself creates to ambush the player, with better life and accuracy.
Unlike Long Theft Auto, players can interact with objects in the environment because of the background story, rather than a little progression. For example, in open beta that was released not long ago, Mari reaches a board about zombies, and asks Yuji if it was true. So dialogue, interacting with the ambient are common in MP.
As the player is in a setting with empty streets, no shops or cars (unless the abandoned ones), there will be no type of monetary system where you can spend money buying weapons, clothes or food. Instead of it, the player is required to exploit the ambient in search of resources. If you do not explore "enough", will have more work to defeat the enemies in the confrontations that await in the continuation of your journey.
In addition to the events of the main story, there will be mini-games where the player can use to exploit the scenario to find new resources. The player can find along the way, as well as weapons, health and armor, bags full of money and books with notes, which serve as a kind of trophy for those who find all the existing amount the state.
The difficulty of V for Vinegar is also new to the MP. The player who is used to follow objectives by checkpoints and markings will have problems at the beginning of the story. This is because, as seen in the beta, the scenarios are closed, and there are no markings such as arrows, checkpoints or points on the map to guide the player, causing the player himself must create their own strategies to move to the next part, following dialogue of the character of the story, which can help the player to think. Examples: "I think we can go through this door here", "I need an access card to the door," "we'll have to kill all these enemies alone", among others.
3. SYNOPSIS
3a. CHARACTERS
Yuji is a japanese immigrant who lives alone; while Mari is a very clever and sarcastic student, but did not have the chance to explore the precarious state.
Other characters include Mari's and Yuji's partner, Albert; a policeman who bother Yuji, Harvey; Clark, a mysterious friend of Mari; Kanae, Yuji's older sister; Ben, Yuji's uncle who lives alone on a desert town; the brothers Ronald and Roger, allies of the organization; Yuji's best friend, Leonard, and his former beloved, Lunna; and Rob, leader of a militia of weapons called "The Cartel".
3b. PLOT
V for Vinegar begins in the suburban area of ​​Los Santos, four months after the start of the riot. Yuji lives alone in a house near the Glen Park. To pay a debt that his father had with Harvey, a corrupt cop, Yuji sets out on a mission to deal drugs with gangsters, and meets a man who introduces him to an organization called "V for vinegar", and ends up as a member of this organization. In it, it is responsible for being the bodyguard of a young woman named Marianna (aka Mari). Mari is the most active member of the organization, and her ideas are considered precious by the other members. So they leave for clues of the enemy organization's headquarters, called "The Blackout". Of course, things turn to worse when they get to know more of the state, and along the way the two will face enemies from street thieves to soldiers trained to kill anyone who invade their base.
V for Vinegar will focus entirely on the different meanings of the word "justice".
4. FINAL CONSIDERATIONS
V for Vinegar brings new ways of gameplay and storyline for DYOM MPs. The revolutionary content of the MP is due to the same genre games inspirations, bringing lots of fun for who's playing, not having a boring content to the player: the player always wants to pursue, to know what will happen next. The climax was used to those who are playing be shocked with the events of history as the deaths of characters or traumatic events, often appealing to the emotional side. Realism is also something greatly enhanced, making it impossible to see cars or people on the street and having elements that make the player think he really is in that fictional world, and feel the same emotions as the characters.
V for Vinegar will be released for DYOM v8 in 2016, with the worldwide release of all missions at the same day.

@Pledge of Chaos: Thanks man. You won't regret, I promise.

@Bender: Well I hope I can release at 2016. This is the prevision. But I can't take more than a year to make it. As you say, most part of the missions are hard to design, and I take at least 2 days to design one with gameplay. Even with the life out there to disturb me, I'll do everything to launch it to you guys in 2016, even in the last day of december. So don't worry.

EDIT: a more accurate prediction would be the second half of 2016. But it's too early to predict day, month or even season...

Hey guys. I'm making this post in a phone, my notebook has a memory problem and I'll take it to the store to fix it. However, I have backup files of the project in my pen drive, in case of they delete everything. I'll probably stay one or two months without design missions, but the project is NOT cancelled. When I come back, I'll put a lot of effort to give you this project still in 2016. So don't worry, soon I'll come back with new informations.
