It’s constantly entertaining to see traditional tales reimagined in video games. However today, Neowiz and designer Round8 Studio have actually announced a mash-up I never ever believed I ‘d see: the story of Pinocchio, in the form of a Souls game.
Lies of P is an approaching entry in the “Souls-like” genre, struck me with a one-two punch. Was the trailer, which appears to show Geppetto going into a fallen city and probably beat up a robot? We only smash-cut to the consequences, however Geppetto certainly seems to have actually offered the robotic a great walloping.
We then cut to Penalized Geppetto, as I’m calling him, standing over a little kid he calls “boy,” who has a mechanical arm. And after the title drop, the “boy” is seen walking towards a wall of different weapons.
Along with the late 19 th century visual and switching out body parts for new abilities, there is likewise a “lying” mechanic. According to the store listing, quests will play out depending on how you lie, and those choices can impact the story’s conclusion.
I have to say, I’m fascinated! It seems like a throwback to dark fairy tale games like Alice: Insanity Returns, so a Pinocchio Souls is truthfully not that hard to picture. The lying system is another level, including some nuance that’s both thematic and really wild.
Lies of P is coming to PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S, though it has no release window just.
