Lies of P is Pinocchio?
« on: September 19, 2023, 10:38:25 AM »
Just saw the release of the new darksouls game that does a dark retelling of Pinocchio?

This looks good, so far-fetched that I'm intrigued.

Looks to be one of the better Souls-likes so far... obviously no one is beating From Soft at their own game but I'm totally fine with other developers trying to put their own spin on the formula

aw damn I didn't notice that it was a different developer, it looks like they took the same map building template from elden ring but added a steampunk renaissance twist.

Closer to Bloodborne/Dark Souls 3 style level design as it's focused on smaller, interconnected areas and not open world but definitely trying to emulate From's style all around. Gameplay itself is very close to Bloodborne with transforming weapons and the 'regain lost health by attacking quickly' mechanic. Aside from Nioh I think most non-From souls-likes have been pretty bad but I'm cautiously optimistic about this one.

They worked some cool Pinocchio stuff into the gameplay like the ability to tell the truth or lie to NPC's... not sure how the lies effect anything long term but you could do cool stuff with that
