Developer Round8 Studio released a new gameplay trailer for Lies of P, their Bloodborne-inspired action RPG based on the story of Pinnochio. Round8 has also shared that the game will come out sometime in August.
Pinnochio’s tale was surprisingly dark in The Adventures of Pinocchio, but Lies of P appears to take that tone to a new level with its violent steampunk world. Enjoy this two-minute sneak peek, courtesy of IGN:
Though this trailer offers little gameplay footage, Lies of P‘s take on 1800s Europe is undeniably cool. It looks like Pinocchio is a full-blown android here — one who isn’t afraid to blast, bludgeon, rip apart, and shoot fire at his enemies. The Bloodborne influences are tough to miss, but I’m pleased to pick up on some Bioshock vibes as well.
The game puts you in the shoes of Pinocchio as he seeks to become human once again. To do so, he needs to find Gepetto, who makes a brief, epic appearance in this trailer. It looks like Pinocchio might be awakening as Lies of P begins and piecing his story together with the player as the game progresses.
