Lies Of P relies on quite unusual assumptions, allowing you to play the role of Pinocchio in a dark world full of monsters that we will defeat in combat in the style of the Souls series. Where does this connection come from? And why was the hero better known from Disney’s fairy tale chosen?
” We had to find something very well known because this is our first Soulslike game and we wanted it to have a fan base right away, ” explains director Choi Ji-Won to IGN. – So we took a well-known story and made our own modifications.
– When people think of Pinocchio, they think of a fairy tale. Disney did, however, make a movie for children. If you look at the original story, it’s quite dark and for adults , adds a representative from the South Korean studio Neowiz.
Another reason was the fact that the hero’s adventures take him to various places, which should ensure a variety of locations. – He starts at Gepetto’s house, then travels to the sea and is swallowed by a whale. This is why Pinocchio is very attractive to our game.
Some players call Life Of P the best production shown at the Gamescom opening conference, so expectations are high. The game will be released in 2023 on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S, and during the game we will visit the dark city of Krat, dominated by “madness and bloodlust”.
