New Gameplay Trailer for Souls-Like RPG “Lies of P”
On Tuesday, game publisher Neowiz and developer Round8 Studio unveiled the first gameplay trailer for Lies of P, a “fantastically baroque” action RPG based on the Italian novel Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi.
The trailer shows off Pinocchio’s weapons, counter-attacks, and how his mechanical arm can be used for a number of unique actions, including as a grappling hook (the best kind of hook, after all).
Here’s the official breakdown of Lies of P from Neowiz, followed by the gameplay trailer:
The ruined, but once beautiful city of Krat is on full display in the new video. Hideous and twisted automatons rule the landscape, and it’s up to P to find Mr. Geppetto and reverse the calamity that has befallen Krat.
As Pinocchio himself, you must navigate through a dark Belle Epoque world where all of humanity is lost. The once beautiful city of Krat has become a living hell, and you must find the famed Mr. Geppetto to unravel the mystery of what happened to both yourself and the world around you.
As the puppet mechanoid Pinocchio, you will wind your way through the streets of a ruined city, crafting weapons from the materials you find in the world, and interacting with the remaining few who manage to survive in this pre-industrial hellscape. The more you lie, the more human you become, with all the advantages and disadvantages that it entails. Profound narrative choices and deeply customizable character progression round out the RPG features in Lies of P.
Built from the ground up using Unreal Engine 4 for PC and consoles, Lies of P tells the story of Pinocchio as you’ve never seen it before.
More story details and other features of Lies of P are expected to be revealed at G-STAR in Busan, South Korea from 17 to 21 November, 2021. You can add Lies of P to your Steam wishlist here.
