Inspired by the familiar story of Pinocchio, Lies of P is an action Souls-like game set in the dark, Belle Époque-inspired city of Krat. Once a beautiful city, Krat has become a living nightmare as deadly puppets run amok and a plague sweeps the land. Play as P, a puppet who must fight his way through the city on his unrelenting journey to find Geppetto and finally become human. Lies of P presents an elegant world filled with tension, deep combat and character customization systems, and a gripping story with interesting narrative choices where the more lies told, the more human P becomes. Just remember: in a world filled with lies, no one can be trusted…
“We are so thankful to the community for their feedback and encouragement that helped us forge a new path in the Souls-like genre,” said Lies of P Director Jiwon Choi. “Lies of P is our love letter to the genre and its fans, and we’re very appreciative to the media who supported us in this journey and recognized our goals and ambitions. Now it’s time for players everywhere to experience all Krat has to offer for themselves!”
