Lies of P, the fairytale-inspired soulslike primarily based on Carlo Collodi’s The Adventures of Pinocchio is right here, but it surely’s by no means too early to invest on the franchise’s future…particularly since that future has already obtained its first potential particulars within the type of a stunning post-credits scene on the conclusion of developer Neowiz’s puppet-filled journey.
After credit have rolled, a remaining cutscene exhibits one of many sport’s principal characters, Paracelcus, chatting with an unknown girl on the telephone, reporting on the end result of the dramatic occasions within the metropolis of Krat.

We’re then proven a quick shot of Krat, nonetheless in ruins, whereas the unmistakable legs of none aside from Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, full with striped socks and ruby slippers, walks alongside earlier than stopping to click on her heels thrice.
The implication right here is that Lies of P appears to be the kicking off level for a sequence that may reimagine numerous kids’s storybooks as darkish and creepy video video games.
However many questions stay: Will all of them observe within the footsteps of Lies of P and retain their soulslike method? What was Dorothy doing strolling round Krat anyway? And can the follow-up be known as Lies of D?
We’re doubtless in for an extended wait earlier than now we have any concrete solutions. For now, we are able to a minimum of all take pleasure in that Lies of P’s soulslike success, which we had excessive reward for in our assessment.
