Lies of P is a Soulslike action-RPG set in a dark steampunk fantasy world born from reimagining the classic children's story of Pinocchio. In this game, you play as P, an android created by the great Geppetto who sends you on a quest to save the city of Krat from being overrun by mechanical puppets that have gone out of control.

In a world filled with high-quality Soulslike action-RPGs that try to stand out from the shadow of FromSoftware's world-famous works such as Elden Ring and Dark Souls, Lies of P is, in my opinion, an incredible gem that shines amidst the crowd. 

This game has a lot going for it that will satisfy the callings of any Soulslike fan. It has a beautifully detailed and immersive atmosphere, a gripping story that does a fine job of reinterpreting the tale of Pinocchio with a twisted edge, and complex customization systems that allow players vast amounts of freedom to modify P's looks and abilities as they see fit.

Lies of P combat system however is its crowning gameplay jewel. It is packed to the brim with many defensive and offensive battle mechanics that can be difficult to learn, but are satisfying to use once mastered. This satisfaction is amplified once you start employing them on the game's many challenging bosses and use them strategically to dispatch them with stylish flair.
