Although Halloween may be over and done for another year, that doesn’t mean we can’t still have some more eerie surprises in store for 2021…
Today we’ve been introduced to the first official alpha gameplay teaser trailer for Lies Of P, a new action-RPG that looks to be a mix of Dark Souls and Bloodborne with, of course, a very heavy pinch of Pinocchio. Now while the Disney version of the beloved tale was still disturbing in parts, this version is much much
worse, being much more closely tied to the original novel.
Although the game is not expected to be released until 2023 on the PS5, Xbox Series X and PC, this teaser trailer gives more than enough to be both disturbed and intrigued by.
We were first made aware of this game when it was officially announced back in May. While the first trailer certainly showed enough unsettling imagery of dead bodies and puppet creatures strewn about a frost-bitten town, this new trailer finally gives us a peek into the combat-heavy gameplay in store.
Taking place in the city of Krat, you play as Pinnochio, a puppet mechanoid with one rad as hell steampunk arm. Your task is seemingly to wander the gothic corpse-ridden cities and dispose of the endless onslaught of fellow puppet-like mechanical monsters.
The game will seemingly also have interactive story elements, where you sometimes have to lie to other characters in order to complete certain quests. We’re praying this means that lying elongates Pinnochio’s nose which can be then used as an absurdly efficient spear.

From the pre-alpha footage shown in this trailer, we’re already impressed by the style and finesse of the gameplay. Pinnochio packs a wild variety of abilities and weapons; from flamethrowers and swords to comically large hacksaws. Everything from the enemies to the sound design already looks and feels immersive, and this is all still from the pre-alpha build.
With at least over a year to wait until its release, we’ll continue wishing upon a star that this game ends up being playing as good as it looks.
