Developers Neowiz Games and Round8 Studio’s Lies of P (available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S via Game Pass) has been compared to Bloodborne ever since the game was revealed. Like so many one-to-one comparisons in modern media, that comparison is ultimately something of an exaggeration. And yet, given that we’re talking about a game that offers a twisted take on the Pinnochio tale, it feels important to say that there are also quite a few truths to be found in those exaggerations.
It’s probably not a coincidence that Lies of P’s most upfront qualities are also its most Bloodborne-like features. It is a Soulslike game with most of the core design elements we associate with that genre (including some that borrow Bloodborne‘s twists on those ideas). Numerous aspects of its UI and animations are…umm…inspired by Bloodborne, to say the least. Most importantly, Lies of P utilizes a particular kind of gothic horror style that certainly feels like it was designed to invoke all of those memories you likely still have about one of the best horror games in recent years. First impressions mean a lot, and most first looks at Lies of P will leave any reasonable person saying “Wow, that looks a lot like Bloodborne.”
To be fair, Lies of P’s developers have not shied away from these comparisons. While they’ve stopped short of saying “Yes, we designed this game with the hopes that we will make people believe it is somehow related to Bloodborne,” they have embraced the similarities in other ways. Most notably, Lies of P director Choi Ji-Won recently said that he’s a “very big fan of Bloodborne” and that he is “honored” to have people use the name
