From Press Release:
SEATTLE – November 8th, 2021 | Neowiz and Round8 Studio today unveiled the first-ever gameplay video for Lies of P, a fantastically baroque Action RPG inspired by the classic Italian novel Pinocchio from Carlo Collodi. The ruined, but once beautiful city of Krat is on full display in the new video. Hideous and twisted automatons rule the landscape, and it’s up to P to find Mr. Geppetto and reverse the calamity that has befallen Krat.
In the video, fans should notice the reactive counter-attacks, the array of unique weapons to find and put to use, and that Pinocchio’s own mechanical arm acts as an additional tool or weapon to give unique skills – such as a grappling hook and more.
More details about the story and features of Lies of P will be revealed at this year’s G-STAR in Busan, South Korea from November 17th to 21st, 2021. Players should stay tuned to the official website for more information in the weeks ahead.
