Playism has launched the Miwashiba-developed RPG LiEat on Nintendo Switch in the west.
Miwashiba says, “The title is a combination of Lie and Eat. It’s a game where you expose lies by making them take form and then beating them up. I’ve always been a fan of heartwarming stories, and when creating this game, the concept I had in mind was a picture book. As a player, I think you will get the most enjoyment out of it if you imagine you are reading a picture book and watching over the protagonists on their journey. The combat in the game is not too challenging, so even if RPGs aren’t your cup of tea, you should be able to play through it comfortably. I drew up a brand new title screen and made some tweaks to the design so even those of you who have already played it might enjoy another playthrough!”
Initially released on PC in 2016, LiEat on Switch will feature all three chapters of the RPG. Further, this version will feature five new illustrations from the developer. The game will have players battle and expose “lies” they’ll cross throughout the adventure. If won, the main character, Efina, will proceed to eat the lies.
Here’s an outline of each chapter:
LiEat -The Lie-Eating Dragon & the Vermilion Vampire-
- Chapter 1 introduces Efina and her caretaker -the multinominal Leo- as they happen upon a small town with a big secret. As Efina starts to perceive and understand the world around her in a new and different light, the pair finds that the legends of beings which haunt the night are more than just tales told to frighten the children at night…
LiEatⅡ -The Lie-Eating Dragon & the Azure Dreameater-
- Chapter 2 finds Efina and Hal (formerly Leo) investigating rumors of something magical and possibly dangerous inside a resort casino. Posing as a newly assigned guard, Hal arranges room and board for himself and Efina – However, they quickly come to the jarring realization that a roof over one’s head and a bed to sleep in do not make a safe haven.
LiEatⅢ -The Lie-Eating Dragon & the Gold Thief-
- The final chapter brings Efina and the newly rechristened Sid (Leo/Hal) to a lavish mansion to foil the plans of a master thief. However, in the wake of the great robbery, Sid discovers that the heist itself was only the tip of the iceberg, and Elfina watches as his past – As well as his lies- finally catch up to them both.
