Lies of P is an upcoming Action Souls-like game that is developed and published by NEOWIZ Games, alongside Game Developer, Round8 Studio. It is a dark retelling of the story of the famous puppet, Pinocchio, set in a Belle Époque Era in Europe around the late 19th Century to the early 20th Century. As Pinocchio, you must help him in finding his creator, Mr. Geppetto, and guide him through an unrelenting journey of becoming a human being.
The story of Lies of P takes place in a city called Krat and players begin their adventure as Pinocchio awakens in an abandoned train station of the city that is bewildered with madness and bloodlust. As Pinocchio arises, he finds a single note that reads: "Find Mr. Gepetto. He's here in the city.".
But as many know the story of Pinocchio, you are a puppet mechanoid who is also on a journey to becoming a human being — as you fight your way through indescribable foes and creations, will you help those who are in need, will you tell them the truth about your identity or will you tell lies just to reach your goals?
Lies of P is set in the late 19th Century to the early 20th Century of the Belle Époque Era in Europe within a city called Krat. The city of Krat was once a beautiful place but has now become lost and turned into a living hell that is filled with unspeakable horrors due to a deadly plague. Krat is featured as a grim city where multiple automatons now roam almost every part of the center, from the streets, rooftops, alleyways, and within buildings.
As you start your adventure in Lies of P, you play as the puppet mechanoid Pinocchio who awakens in an abandoned train station not knowing where he has come from and what his purpose is. As we all know the famous fable of Pinocchio, Mr. Geppetto carved a wooden puppet named Pinocchio and was visited by the Blue Fairy who granted Mr. Geppetto's wish by transforming the puppet into a living being, that being said, Pinocchio sets forth into reaching his goal of becoming a real boy.
Lies of P is inspired by its original story but it is now being told in a dark and gritty way that will leave an unforgettable experience. In Lies of P, Pinocchio does not know who Mr. Geppetto is but one thing he knows as he reads the note that was left for him is that he must find Mr. Geppetto, and throughout his journey, he will learn about his identity, his capabilities, his purpose, and ultimately reach his goal of becoming a real human being, but it is up to you on how you will guide Pinocchio. Will you be true to yourself and show the people of Krat Pinocchio's true nature or will you lie and do whatever it takes for Pinocchio's dreams to come true?
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. Lies of P is inspired by the familiar story of Pinocchio. The game is an action souls-like game set in a cruel, dark Belle Époque world where all of humanity is lost in a once beautiful city that has now become a living hell filled with unspeakable horrors — the anticipated game, Lies of P, offers an elegant world filled with tension, a deep combat system, and a gripping story.
