Neowiz Announces Souls-like Lies of P

Neowiz and Round8 Studio announced yesterday an upcoming Souls-like RPG. With inspiration drawn from the classic Carlo Collodi novel, Lies of P will be an action RPG for a variety of systems.

Players take the role of famous puppet Pinocchio. Pinocchio must travel through the streets of a ruined city, craft weapons for self-defense, and find the few remaining denizens. The more Pinocchio lies, the more human Pinocchio becomes a creature of flesh and blood rather than mechanical parts. And he’ll need to, in order to survive the dark underbelly of Krat.

Lies of P Krat
What nightmares lurk beneath the fancy veneer? Only time will tell.

Made in Unreal Engine 4, Lies of P features a dark Belle Epoque setting. Krat, once a beautiful city of class and culture, has become an urban nightmare. Mr. Geppetto may have the answers to Pinocchio’s origin and the state of the world. Lies of P boasts a “richly detailed crafting system, profound narrative choices, and deeply customizable character progression.” The Steam page also advertises multiple endings and quests based on how Pinocchio lies.

Lies of P is the culmination of our dreams and our nightmares. It’s definitely a version of this classic story that you’ve never seen before. To us, Pinocchio has always been a grimly dark tale of the lies we tell to get by in a world that’s not always black and white. We can’t wait to show you more of the game in the coming months.”

Jiwon Choi, Director of Development

Lies of P will come to the PC, PlayStation 5, and the Xbox Series X/S systems. Round8’s first title was Bless Unleashed, with many team members experienced with titles such as Monster Hunter World. Neowiz, based in Korea, creates and provides service for titles such as Brave Nine, the aforementioned Bless Unleashed, and DJMAX RESPECT.

Players can add Lies of P to their Steam Wishlist now, and don’t forget to watch the trailer to see the dark fairy tale adaptation for yourself.
