The Besties: Lies of P is the Pinocchio Souls-like We Never Knew We Needed

An illustration of a white trophy with four black figures. One is lifting the bottom of the trophy, another is waving from the top, another is climbing the handle, and the last figure is standing next to it with its arms outstretched. The background is gold. There is a light yellow light shining out from the trophy. Above it says, “The Besties” in black serif font with an orange laurel on either side.

In a year full of surprise sleeper hits, Lies of P might just be the most surprising — Pinocchio trappings and ridiculous title aside, it’s one of the most solid replications of the Souls formula we’ve ever played. Join us for a discussion of what sets it apart from other entries in the genre. (Hint: It’s the P-Organ.)
