SEATTLE - November 8th, 2021 | Neowiz and Round8 Studio today unveiled the first-ever gameplay video for Lies of P, a fantastically baroque Action RPG inspired by the classic Italian novel Pinocchio from Carlo Collodi.  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.
 
 
In the video, fans should notice the reactive counter-attacks, the array of unique weapons to find and put to use, and that Pinocchio's own mechanical arm acts as an additional tool or weapon to give unique skills - such as a grappling hook and more.


More details about the story and features of Lies of P will be revealed at this year’s G-STAR in Busan, South Korea from November 17th to 21st, 2021. Players should stay tuned to the official website for more information in the weeks ahead.

 
More About Lies of P


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. Players are invited to stay tuned to the website for updates and the upcoming first gameplay reveal. Stay tuned in the coming months for gameplay details, character reveals, and much more.
