Lies of P gets massive 40 minute block of gameplay – Effinate Games

Lies by P is a dark fantasy adaptation of the world of Pinocchio. Players have been clamoring to see more of the game, so publisher Neowiz and developer Round8 Studio dumped a bunch of gameplay.

The game received a monstrous 40-minute long gameplay trailer split into two videos. Check them out here:

Here’s a breakdown of the 2021 announced games:

You wake up in an abandoned train station in Krat, a city overwhelmed by madness and bloodlust. In front of you is a single note that reads: “Find Mr. Geppetto. He is here in town.”

Play as Pinocchio, a puppet mechanoid, and fight through everything in your path to find this mysterious person. But don’t expect any help along the way, and don’t make the mistake of trusting anyone. You must always lie to others if you hope to become human.

Inspired by the well-known story of Pinocchio, Lies of P is a soul-like action game set in a cruel, dark Belle Époque world. All of humanity is lost in a once beautiful city that has now become a living hell filled with unspeakable horrors. Lies of P offers an elegant world filled with tension, a deep combat system and a gripping story. Guide Pinocchio and experience his tireless journey to become human.


  • A Dark Fairy Tale Retold – The timeless tale of Pinocchio has been reimagined with dark and striking images. Set in the fallen city of Krat, Pinocchio desperately fights to become human against all odds.
  • Visual Concept – The city of Krat was inspired by the Belle Époque era in Europe (late 19th century to early 20th century) and is the epitome of a collapsed city without prosperity.
  • ‘Lying’ quests and multiple endings – Experience interconnected procedural quests that unfold depending on how you lie. These choices will then affect how the story ends.
  • Weapon Manufacturing System – You can combine weapons in a variety of ways to create something completely new. Explore to find the best combinations and create something truly special.
  • Special Skill System – Since Pinocchio is a puppet, you can change parts of his body to gain new skills and hopefully an advantage in battle. However, not all of the improvements are for combat, they can also provide several other unique and useful features.

Lies by P launched for Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 sometime in 2023.
