Neowiz is becoming a bigger gaming studio with its announcement of Lies of P. A role-playing game that takes place in the French land and is a game similar to Souls-like. The game is an award-winning console game from Korea.
Lies of P
Lies of P is based on a popular story, “Pinocchio,” and its gameplay will follow the role-playing game (RPG) category. The story of this game takes place in the late 19th century with a dark fantasy-like theme. This type of game is usually difficult to conquer.
As a player, you will be in France during the Belle Époque period. It is a time of massive industrial growth with a hint of peaceful optimism in Europe. The developers have spun their own creativity by adding technology tools and circus clowns.
Similar to the story of Pinocchio, lying is a big factor in Lies of P. Your character “P” will get more “Humanity” when lying. As you receive more or less “humanity,” it will influence the game’s outcome. Choi says, “Developers have also implemented the idea of the “growing nose” in Lies of P.
