If you enjoy modern games and action RPGs like Dark Souls and enjoy old concepts getting a twist you’re in luck, as Round8 Studio and NEOWIZ present Lies of P — which reimagines the tale of Pinocchio and makes it a Bloodborne style game full of darkness, excitement, and wonder.
Here’s the dark cinematic trailer to show you that this is no longer any kid’s fairytale.
Here’s the overview of the plot from the game’s steam page.
You wake up at an abandoned train station in Krat, a city overwhelmed by madness and bloodlust. In front of you lies a single note that reads:
“Find Mr. Geppetto. He’s here in the city.”
Play as Pinocchio, a puppet mechanoid, and fight through everything in your path to find this mystery person. But don’t expect any help along the way and don’t make the mistake of trusting anyone.
You must always lie to others if you hope to become human.
Inspired by the familiar story of Pinocchio, Lies of P is an action souls-like game set in a cruel, dark Belle Époque world.
All of humanity is lost in a once beautiful city that has now become a living hell filled with unspeakable horrors.
Lies of P offers an elegant world filled with tension, deep combat system and a gripping story.
Guide Pinocchio’s and experience his unrelenting journey to become human.
