Neowiz and Round8 Studio announced a new game based on the classic children’s story character Pinocchio. P’s lie The story takes place in a twisted version of Pinocchio’s world, where robots have taken over the fictional city of Krat. Pinocchio must find Mr. Geppetto to reverse the city’s doom and defeat the killer puppet to save Krat from the troubled ruins.
The accompanying trailer shows the gameplay and atmosphere of “P’s Lie”, both in essence and substance, it is an extremely dark soul. The city itself is like Yharnam in “The Curse of Blood”, and Pinocchio himself uses a variety of weapons to deal with robot enemies of different tastes. Pinocchio also used seemingly magical things when exploring the dark streets of Krat, and used robotic arms to equip different skills.
More interesting is the claim that the game will have “deep narrative choices”, which can be interesting if they exceed the endings you get. And this game is advertised as an RPG, so I hope we can see some very different constructions in how to build Pinocchio.
Round8 Studio has no shortage of game development talents. Among their team are veterans of “Monster Hunter World”. Their first game is Bless Unleashed. The trailer, which includes the pre-alpha game, already looks very beautiful. It will be interesting to see what P’s lie adds to the already crowded type.
On November 17, G-STAR in Busan, South Korea will announce more details and secrets about P’s lies.
