The brand-new Souls-like game Lies of P has won its first year-end award, but it has a chance for more before the year ends.
Lies of P won “Mac Game of the Year” at the 2023 Apple App Store Awards. Lies of P is a new Souls game that has been released recently to pretty positive reviews. (From us, too.) The game has been praised for its art style. For its Pinocchio-inspired setting and satisfying fights. True, he received some criticism. For example, that it was too difficult, even in a genre known for offering particularly difficult games.
Lies of P was a massive success for NEOWIZ, debuting on Xbox Game Pass on its first day, securing a vast player base right out of the gate and selling over 1 million copies of the game.
In addition to commercial success, the game was also acclaimed by critics. He has been nominated for several year-end awards. These include Lies of P being nominated for Best Art Direction and Best RPG at The Game Awards 2023. He is also a contender for the Players’ Voice award at the event.
How well Lies of P will fare at The Game Awards on December 7th remains to be seen. But by then, the game had already won at least one Game of the Year award. It won “Mac Game of the Year” at Apple’s 2023 App Store Awards 2023. It beat out Elex 2 and Return to Monkey Island for the top prize. This may just be the first of many awards Lies of P will win this year. But even if it doesn’t win any more awards, it’s impressive that the brand-new IP managed to take home Game of the Year in a year full of acclaimed new game releases.
NEOWIZ wants to capitalize on the success of Lies of P in several ways. For one thing, they confirmed that a sequel is in development, which makes sense, given the ending of the first game. However, it looks like fans won’t have to wait for a sequel to continue their adventures in Krat.
It’s also been confirmed that the Lies of P DLC is in active development, though fans will have to wait and see what that entails.
Since the game is a brand-new IP in a crowded genre and a crowded year, it’s nice to see it get some recognition. Reviews of the game were primarily positive. It seems that many are curious to see how the developers can use the feedback from the first game to make an excellent sequel.
