RPG Gamers summary

“Lies of P” is an upcoming video game set in a dark, gothic rendition of the classic fairytale Pinocio. As the puppet-crafted protagonist, crafted by the fictional craftsman Geppetto, players must navigate a brooding world filled with terrifying creatures and deceitful entities obstructing their path to uncover the truth of this reality.

The narrative unfolds in the once bustling city of Krat, now a petrified landscape enslaved by a mysterious plague that has driven its inhabitants to madness and violence. The game’s thematic aesthetic heavily draws upon the Belle Epoque era, grounding the game within a decadent period known for advances in art and creativity, with a uniquely macabre twist.

“Lies of P” delivers the Soulslike genre experience, challenging players to adapt their gameplay and weaponry to confront a myriad of horror elements. The Legion Arms arsenal and newly introduced abilities provide meticulously strategized dynamic weapon combinations which will come in handy during the battles with the horrific creatures haunting the city.

Underneath its atmospheric terror and the brutal combat, the game pushes its players into moral dilemmas. Players will have to choose between truth and lies, each with its own consequences and path, often to comfort the sorrowful and despairing characters encountered during the journey.

With the Digital Deluxe Pre-Order Edition, bonuses include 72 hours of early access, exclusive costume items such as the Mischievous Puppet’s Clothes and Parade Hat, The Great Venigni’s Signature Coat and Glasses, along with a festival-mask.

Thus, “Lies of P” reinvents the beloved childhood tale into a gloomy narrative video game, allowing players to delve deep into its evocative secrets and symbolic reference, layered within the tormented world of Krat. The game is certainly one to keep an eye on for fans of the genre and those searching for a suspenseful, immersive, and morally challenging gaming experience.
