You are Pinocchio, a highly realistic-looking mechanized puppet created by an old man called Geppetto. Your creator is caught in a web of lies with unimaginable monsters and untrustworthy figures and you must explore the city and right the wrongs that have befallen your world.
You are awakened by a mysterious voice, a consciousness perhaps, that guides you through the plagued city of Krat - a once lively place that has been poisoned by madness and bloodlust. In Lies of P, you must adapt your skills and weapons to face untold horrors, untangle the gruesome secrets of the city's elites, and navigate your journey to find yourself.
In the game, your choices will directly impact the narrative and shape your journey. Will you choose to confront your predicaments face-on with the truth, or weave a web of lies to overcome them?
The game truly is a classic reimagined in a twisted way, with the setting and narrative being dark and grim. But the twists don't stop there. As Pinocchio, you will battle horrifying instruments that had been left behind in the wake of the destroyed town and its puppet industry. With a plethora of mechanic enemies, each wielding their own unique skills, you will have to utilize the satisfying and dynamic weapon combinations the game provides.
Lies of P presents a captivating narrative that explores themes of identity, perception, and the nature of truth. The game's story is driven by a compelling mystery, as players are tasked with uncovering the truth behind the protagonist's existence and the enigmatic world they inhabit. Through encounters with intriguing characters and deciphering cryptic clues, players are propelled deeper into a web of lies and deception, blurring the lines between reality and illusion.
Lies of P is releasing on Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4/5, and PC on September 19th. Can't wait three months to get your hands on the game? There is currently a Demo available on Steam that offers around two hours of gameplay that involves two boss battles and a chance to explore the stunning world of Krat.
