NEOWIZ, a leading game developer and publisher in South Korea, is celebrating Pinocchio’s birthday today with the release of two brand-new videos offering a behind-the-scenes look at the development of Lies of P and a unique character breakdown from the voice actor. In the first video, Project Director Ji Won Choi and Art Director Chang Kyu Noh guide viewers through what to expect from the story, characters, tone, art direction, and more that they’ll discover throughout the highly-anticipated Souls-like game, while the second video has actor Allegra Marland (Elden Ring, The Crown), share a deep dive into her character Sophia.
The Lies of P voice actor interview and behind-the-scenes videos can be viewed on YouTube:
In the behind-the-scenes video, Choi and Roh give insight into the meticulous designs of the cast and game world, their inspirations for creating the game, and more in a Q&A style. In the video interview with Marland, she provides a detailed look at Sophia and how she helped bring the mysterious character to life. Sophia is unique in that she gained time manipulation abilities after awakening the true powers of Ergo, and Marland goes on to describe some of her favorite lines and how she views the character in the context of the story.
Inspired by the familiar story of Pinocchio, Lies of P is an action Souls-like game set in the dark, Belle Époque-inspired city of Krat. Once a beautiful city, Krat has become a living nightmare as deadly puppets run amok and a plague sweeps the land. Play as P, a puppet who must fight his way through the city on his unrelenting journey to find Geppetto and finally become human. Lies of P presents an elegant world filled with tension, deep combat and character customization systems, and a gripping story with interesting narrative choices where the more lies told, the more human P becomes. Just remember: in a world filled with lies, no one can be trusted…
Lies of P is scheduled for release from NEOWIZ on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam in 2023. Fans interested in learning more can follow the game on Twitter, Facebook, and Steam, or join the community on the official Discord server.
