Lies of P is a thrilling soulslike that takes the story of Pinocchio, turns it on its head, and sets it against the darkly elegant backdrop of the Belle Epoque.
You are a puppet created by Geppetto who’s caught in a web of lies with unimaginable monsters and untrustworthy figures standing between you and the events that have befallen the world of Lies of P.
You are awakened by a mysterious voice that guides you through the plagued city of Krat - a once lively place that has been poisoned by madness and bloodlust. In our soulslike, you must adapt yourself and your weapons to face untold horrors, untangle the unfathomable secrets of the city’s elites and choose whether to confront predicaments with the truth or weave lies to overcome them on the journey to find yourself.
Weapon assemble/ weapon combination
Create unique weapons by taking some handles and blades to merge them into something new for all new attributes and styles. After meeting with Gepgetto, you can begin experimenting by speaking to Eugenie in Hotel Krat or by finding a stargazer.
Each weapon has two Fable Arts – one for the blade and one for the handle. Fable Arts have a wide-range of uses, including bolstering your defense or dealing damage in spectacular fashion
Legion Arm loadouts
There are three available in the demo, each with a unique purpose so you can customize to fit your playstyle and weapon. Go to the Venigni Craft Machine in Hotel Krat to change your Legion Arm.
Increase all your attributes in exchange for Ergo by speaking to Sophia in Hotel Krat. The higher your attributes increase, the greater the Ergo cost. What will you improve first? You’ll be able to improve P via Stargazer before meeting with Sophia in this demo.
Using a Stargazer will replenish your health, but enemies also respawn so only use them if you really need to.
Groggy & Fatal Attacks
When attacking enemies, they’ll become Groggy (see white outline around health bar). After stunning a groggy enemy, use a Fatal Attack to punish them during this window.
Before you take on the Parade Master
Purchase Throwing Cells from the Wandering Merchant located directly outside the boss encounter. They’re a particularly effective throwable object for this boss. They deal shock damage from a distance and make the boss more susceptible to damage from melee attacks for a short period.
Be sure to upgrade P from the Stargazer outside Krat Hotel before taking on the Parade Master.
