These lines of conversation are not Lies of P, but they are a great collection of Quotes of P.
Lies of P is a more violent horror game like Souls that retells Pinocchio’s story. It has beautifully detailed enemy-filled worlds, and it also does a great job of crafting interesting characters with great conversation. This then gives you some great things to think about when it comes to their words.
Krat has a lot of lore, NPCs, side quests, and story to discover. Talking to people will keep you just as busy as beating the Puppet and Petrification Disease bosses that Lies of P throws at you. Here are some of the chatter and lines that will stick with you from the game.
“Geppetto’s Puppet… We Need Your Help.” – Sophia
In Lies of P, these are the first words you hear from Sophia. You don’t even know who she is yet. It happens right when we meet Pinocchio for the first time. He is sitting in his chair in the train car at Krat Central Station, lifeless, until a blue butterfly melts into him and brings him to life.
In the original story, this is the critical moment that starts Pinocchio’s adventures. The Blue Fairy makes sure that Geppetto’s puppet comes to life in Lies of P, which seems to have been based on Disney’s version. In the game, this quote is also used as a call to action, since Pinocchio is Krat’s chosen one to stop the Puppet Frenzy and the Petrification Disease and its further damage.
“Ergo Is The Miracle That Made Krat Prosper.” – Sophia
Ergo is the glowing blue essence that you get from killed enemies and use to buy upgrades and other things. It’s also what keeps you living. This is a sad statement from the Blue Fairy Sophia, because Ergo does power Stargazers to heal you and set up checkpoints, but it was also Ergo that caused the Puppet Frenzy and Petrification Disease that brought down Krat.
During the beginning and end credits, it is shown that what happened in Krat was similar to the experiment at Black Iron Prison in The Callisto Protocol. The people who started Krat found big rock piles full of blue Ergo fragments. The Alchemists used these fragments to try to speed up evolution, which caused the Petrification Disease that killed and changed innocent people in the town.
“Finally, We Meet, Son.” – Geppetto
Unlike the original story and the movies based on it, Lies of P changes the order of events so that you meet a lot of other characters before you finally meet Geppetto again. These two characters are not near their home, and the game makes it very hard to get to him. You have to beat tough bosses in many places just to hear him say, “Finally, we meet, son.”
After you finish your Soulslike business with the Mad Donkey boss, Geppetto gets out of the carriage he was stuck in and meets Pinocchio for the first time in his real form. It’s one of the most touching and beautiful parts of this darker retelling, and it sets up the bond between the father and son for the rest of Lies of P.
“Grand Covenant’s Fourth Law: A Puppet Cannot Lie.” – Hotel Door, Polendina
One more major idea in Lies of P is that all robots are made with built-in rules, similar to Isaac Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics. But Krat’s puppets have to follow four rules, and one of them is that they can’t lie. This is especially important for Pinocchio’s personality because Geppetto only gave him the ability to lie.
Pinocchio being able to do the exact opposite of what he was programmed to do becomes a key part of Lies of P that changes how the story ends. At certain points, you’ll have to decide whether to lie or tell the truth. Depending on how much more you lie than tell the truth, one of three ends will happen.
“I’m Gemini, Your Friendly Puppet Guide. Or Friendly Guide Puppet? One Of Those.” – Gemini
One more fun and silly quote from Lies of P comes from your cricket partner, Gemini. Yes, that Gemini. You just spelled it the way the astrological sign does and put it in a lamp around your waist. This talking cricket stays with you throughout Lies of P, just like in the story and the quote.
You’ll have to forgive Gemini for having trouble coming up with a better title for himself at first because he’s still shocked when you first meet him. The cricket knows that he’s not really a puppet and is only there to help the puppets, so the phrase “guide puppet” doesn’t work here. However, “puppet guide” could also be taken the wrong way.
“This Is Where Evolution Becomes Real.” – Champion Victor
This is a pretty funny line that makes the point even stronger that Ergo is used to get to faster evolution and endless life. It’s something Champion Victor says with pride as he walks into the field to fight. When you look at him, you immediately think of Bane, but with Ergo fluid strength.
Victor, the huge mutant monster, is excited to show you what his evolution from too much Ergo can do to you. He is likely Simon Manus’ biggest ideological and fighting fan. It’s possible to call this quote an odd move, but you won’t forget it any time soon.
“Ah, And When I Return, I Will Find Her. For Sure. Another Key Of Ours, Dorothy.” – Paracelsus
There is a question that stays with you after reading this quote: is Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz the next figure that Neowiz will adapt? One of the most mind-blowing parts of Lies of P is when her name is mentioned in the scene after the credits, and then there is a shot of her tapping the ruby slippers three times.
This quote shows that Pinocchio and Krat weren’t the only people the Alchemists were looking for in their quest to become forever. Philippus Paracelsus, who appears in Lies of P as the trader Giangio, is based on a real person from history. He is said to be a leader in the group who promises to find Dorothy before they meet again, which sets up the sequel story perfectly.
“Give Me Your Heart, Son.” – Geppetto
The last choice you have to make in Lies of P. Should you give Geppetto your heart, or should you say no to what he wants? According to the original story, he says he will turn you into a person, but something doesn’t seem right. So far, you’ve put your trust in him. But Geppetto turns out to be a traitorous bad guy in the end, and he needs your heart to bring his real son Carlo back to life.
Giving up P’s heart will take more thought than usual because it will directly lead to one of the possible endings and set up the Geppetto twist. People who have finished Tunnel Rush might even have to go back and try again to see if the results are different. For Pinocchio and Geppetto, it’s a matter of life and death.
“Moneybags Himself, Lorenzini Venigni, Is Inside The Factory This Very Moment.” – Red Fox
Lorenzini Venigni is a funny character because both of his first and last names rhyme and sound like a type of pasta. He is also known as “Moneybags” Venigni, which is a silly nickname he got for being the cocky, smart, and rich creator of Krat’s puppets.
He is first called “Moneybags” by the NPC Red Fox who lives near his workshop. You can tell right away that Venigni is proud of himself and his success from the way he decorates his office and talks about himself. The nickname “Moneybags” will stick.
“People Have No Idea So Many Secrets Are Buried In Krat…” – Antonia
Antonia runs an unhealthy hotel in Krat that people can use to get away from the Petrification Disease and the Puppet Frenzy, but she knows more about the town’s dark past and real purpose than she lets on.
During the game, you feel sorry for her because of her Petrification sickness, but her character also has an eerie and mysterious feel to it. This quote, which is both interesting and scary, proves the point. She does, however, take any other secrets she may have to the grave with her.
