Pinocchio-inspired Lies of P pre-alpha footage looks stunning

Since we’re probably not getting a 60fps patch for Bloodborne anytime soon, or even Bloodborne 2 for that matter, how about an alternative?

Neowiz and Round8 Studio today unveiled the first-ever gameplay video for Lies of P, an action RPG inspired by the classic tale of Pinnochio that has some seriously intense Bloodborne vibes but with the graphical quality of the Demon’s Souls remake. For a pre-alpha gameplay cut, it looks absolutely stunning and has gotten the attention of everyone.

The footage is very impressive, showing battle sequences that are fast-paced and deliberate. We get to see a variety of weapons being used and a mechanical arm that looks also something that’s inspired by Sekiro.

Check out the video below:

Lies of P Overview

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.

More information about Lies of P will be revealed at this year’s G-STAR event in South Korea on November 17-21 and is currently set to release for the PS5, Xbox Series, and PC in 2023.
