When you hear a name like LiEat Triology you think of two things: lying and eating. Apparently the lying part is actually part of the game and by the image below eating will at least happen in the game. The small RPG is being released in English on PC through indie localizer Playism. The developer is a company (or possibly 1 person) named Miwashiba and they’re described as an illustrator whose ‘main job is focusing on the design and production.’
LiEat Trilogy centers on young Efina. She’s a happy-go-lucky girl/dragon that can make a person’s lies turn into tangible creatures in the real world. From the launch video you can actually see Efina fighting these lies and even eating them. The dragon girl is accompanied by her caretaker Leo (or Hal later because maybe a name change?) and they go around the world uncovering mysteries. It probably helps that Efina is able to make people’s lies a reality when trying to solve a crime. Their adventures will take them to mysterious small town, a resort casino and a grand mansion that has it’s own art gallery. Along the way they’ll come across thieves, vampires and even other dragons.
As the name suggests the game is split into three different, contained stories. The length of each of these chapters is not said but the site mentions that the game will be story driven with hidden conversations/locations and atmospheric music. The low rez cutscenes and pixel art is very charming and seems to suit the whimsical world that the LiEat Trilogy is trying to embody. It’s honestly really hard not to fall in love with this indie RPG.
Playism is releasing LiEat Trilogy on PC today and for the pretty low price of $2.99 USD. In line with Playism’s mission statement, this title will be DRM free and also comes with a Steam key. The game can also be downloaded an unlimited amount of times from Playism’s website. It’s not often that 3 dollars scores you an entire trilogy so you should go buy this game and support indie Japanese developers! Go do it! Don’t lie to me about it or I’ll get a dragon to make your lies into monsters and then cutely nibble on them…
I’ll do it.
