Using Souls-like mechanics, Lies of P will transport players into a gothic and eerie world full of malevolent puppets and vile creatures who will seek to stop you in your tracks by any means necessary.

Lies of P gameplay details & demo
It’s no secret that Lies of P draws plenty of inspiration from Bloodborne, from its very aesthetic to the Soulsbourne mechanics it helped pioneer.
In this gothic world, players will be able to repair their weapons, rest at Stargazers (this game’s equivalent of Elden Ring’s Sites of Grace or Dark Souls’ Bonfires) and level up using the souls of defeated enemies.
Playing as a living puppet has its perks. Players will be able to tweak parts of P’s body and combine weapon pieces to acquire new skills and gain an edge in battle.
The demo for Lies of P is available now on all releasing platforms, allowing players to get a feel for the mechanics and the gothic game world it is enshrouded in.
