Developer Round 8 Studio and publisher NeoWiz have announced Lies of P, a Souls-like action-RPG that’s inspired by the story of Pinocchio. It is due out for release in 2023 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, Google Stadia, and xCloud.
The developers describe the gameplay as having “a unique ‘lie’ system where what you do and say as the main character dynamically affects gameplay.” NeoWiz offered a bit of insight on the announcement trailer (which you can watch at the top of this page), saying that it’s narrated by someone other than the protagonist (that’s all they’d hint at for now) and the events in the trailer serve as a prologue to the game’s story.

The development team is over 60 people so far and still hiring, with the intent of making a Souls-like that competes with any of the best games in the genre. You can see a bit more of Lies of P in the screenshots above. We’ll have much more on it as development progresses!
