If you’re unfamiliar with Lies of P, then the “Pinocchio” portion of its story might seem a bit… out of place, but the events of the game are indeed inspired by the famous long-nosed wooden puppet. The twist is that, instead of enjoying a playful adventure with Mr. Geppetto, players will be subject to a punishing journey in a city “filled with unspeakable horrors.” You’ll control a mechanized version of Pinocchio on your search for Geppetto while learning your enemies’ patterns and leveling up equipment. Lies of P won’t bring its highly anticipated soulslike combat to PC and consoles for a few more months, but players are sure to be in for a dark fairy tale adventure that gives new meaning to the original story it’s based on.
