Lies of P: Bloodborne With Puppets

If you ever wondered what would happen if Pinocchio was a badass hunter in a dark and twisted world inspired by H.P. Lovecraft and Bram Stoker, then Lies of P is the game for you. The game is a soulslike, meaning it features challenging combat, exploration, customization and a high level of difficulty that will make you die a lot. But don’t worry, dying is part of the fun.


What is Lies of P?

Lies of P follows the story of a puppet named P (short for Pinocchio) who wakes up in the city of Krat, a once prosperous place that has been ravaged by a mysterious plague that turns people into horrific beasts. P is guided by a mysterious voice that tells him to find his creator, Geppetto, and unravel the secrets of the city. Along the way, P will encounter familiar characters from the classic fairy tale. The game is heavily influenced by Bloodborne, both in terms of gameplay and aesthetics. You’ll have to fight your way through hordes of grotesque enemies using various weapons and abilities. You can equip different mechanical arms, called Legion Arms, that grant you special powers.

Bloodborne Inspiration


Lies of P is heavily influenced by Bloodborne, another acclaimed soulslike game from FromSoftware. Both games share a similar Gothic aesthetic, a complex lore, a fast-paced combat system and a variety of weapons and items to use. However, Lies of P also has its own identity and innovations, such as the Lie System Legion Arms system, which allows P to transform his weapons into different forms and unleash powerful attacks. For example, P can turn his sword into a whip, or his axe into a hammer. Each weapon has its own skill tree and upgrades that can be customized according to the player’s preference.

The Lie System

One of the unique features of Lies of P is the lie system, which allows P to lie to other characters or himself to influence the outcome of certain situations. For example, P can lie to comfort someone in distress, or to gain access to a restricted area. However, lying has consequences, as it affects P’s appearance and abilities. It is worth noting that every time Pinocchio tells a lie, an observable confirmation occurs, and his frame twitches. It is possible that after articulating a certain amount of lies, players will receive certain thresholds that inflict Pinocchio with negative status effects. These ailments often decrease the player’s raw stats or bind them to a debuff.

Lies of P is one of the most anticipated games of 2023, and it has already received several awards and nominations at Gamescom 2023. The game also had a playable demo available on Steam, which gives players a taste of what to expect from the full game. If you are looking for a challenging and rewarding game that will test your skills and your morals, then Lies of P is the game for you. Just remember: lying can be dangerous.

Lies of P is set to release on September 19 for PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Game Pass. If you enjoyed this post, be sure to check out more content on Poggers Memes.
