Well, we don’t think anyone expected it. Lies of P is a freshly announced Soul RPG based on the classic Pinocchio tale. Not the Disney movie – we doubt your sword escapades in this game will be accompanied by Jiminy Cricket.
Anyway, you can watch the trailer above. It has a sort of Bloodborne vibe, with all these towering Gothic buildings and streets littered with corpses. In the town of Krat you play as the puppet / mechanoid Pinocchio, your main objective being to reach Mr. Geppetto and become a human.
What’s most interesting about this is that lying seems to be a part of some quests and will affect the ending. “Experience interconnected procedural quests that unfold depending on how you lie. These choices will then affect the end of the story, ”reads the blurb on the game’s Steam page. You can also combine weapons in different ways and replace parts of Pinocchio’s mechanical body to activate new abilities. . You have to wonder if its nose will grow and you can detach it to use it as a weapon.
The game is slated for release on PlayStation 5, but there doesn’t appear to be a release date of any kind. It might still be a long way off, but we’re really intrigued to find out more. What do you think of P’s lies? Wish a star in the comments section below.
