On October 17, 2023, NEOWIZ declared on the internet that Lies of P, has successfully shipped and sold over one million copies just under a month after the game was released on September 18, 2023.

Lies of P is an action-RPG that reinterprets the classic stories of Pinocchio and twists them on their heads to create a dark and gritty Soulslike adventure. You play as 'P', an automaton created by a genius inventor named Geppeto and your goal is to save the citizens of Krat from being slaughtered by out-of-control killing machines called Puppets.

I personally reviewed Lies of P for Xbox Series X|S, and I consider it one of the best Soulslike I ever played, even outside FromSoftware's titles. It has a deep combat system, an intriguing setting, and challenging, fun bosses to fight.

Seeing this title achieve so much commercial success so quickly, despite launching in the same month with heavy hitters like Starfield and Mortal Kombat 1, fills me with happiness as I believe it deserves it. Not to mention, it fills me with hope that we might see a sequel for Lies of P in the future.

If you're a fan of Soulslikes and fancy playing a spooky game for Halloween, I highly recommend you check out Lies of P, as it is one of the best Xbox games of 2023. It's available for purchase right now for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam. Lies of P is also available on Xbox Game Pass.
