About This Game

Efina is a very special young girl. She's curious. She's optimistic. She has the power to make lies manifest as physical beings, and then she eats them for sustenance.

She's also a dragon.

LiEat is the classic story of a vagabond and his dragon protege traveling a curious world, buying and selling secrets, all the while trying to uncover the truth about themselves. Along the way, they'll discover a web of hidden mysteries, meet a variety of colorful characters (including other dragons) and learn about the past events that brought them to where they are today.

LiEat is broken down into three fantastic, bite-sized chapters:

In the first chapter, meet Efi and her caretaker, the multi-titled Leo, as they happen upon a small town with a big secret. Efi begins to understand the world around her in a different perspective, and the player finds that the legends that haunt the night aren't necessarily just children's tales...

Chapter two finds Efi and Hal (formerly Leo) investigating rumors of something magical and possibly dangerous inside a resort casino. Posing as a new guard, Hal gets room and board for himself and Efi, but they quickly realize that a roof over their heads doesn't mean it's a safe place to stay.

The final installment of LiEat bring Efi and Sid to a lavish mansion to foil the plans of a master thief. However, after the great robbery occurs, Sid begins to realize there's more at work than a simple heist, and Efi watches as his past - and his lies - finally catch up to them both.

This amazing trilogy has been beloved by JRPG enthusiasts and, for the first time ever, can be enjoyed in its entirety on Steam, in one singular package! With support from the original developer and the fan translator, PLAYISM is proud to help bring LiEat to the world at large!

  • A fantastic JRPG focused on storytelling.
  • Atmospheric music to entrance the player within LiEat's world.
    (OST included in the build! Make sure to check your local folder.)
  • A series of hidden items AND conversations throughout.
  • Multiple achievements for each chapter of the game.
  • All three chapters in one package - no DLC, just the whole story.

Special Thanks to vgperson and SmokingWolf

This game is cheap and contains three chapters, each with different friends and foes! Forget the fact this is an Indie RPG with pixel graphics, the first story already has me hyped for Chapter II and III.
In conclusion of my two sentences, LiEat is a cheap bundle of three storys, and is worth the $2.99!

This was arguably the best two bucks I've ever spent. In all seriousness, I highly recommend this game. WHile its rather short, it has an endearing quality to it that, when coupled with it's wonderful story and charming characters, make for a fun ride. If you're thinking about buying it solely for its combat aspect, however, I should add that the combat isn't really there for a thrill of the fight, though some fights may have you on the edge of your seat anyhow.
One of the few games I plan to go achievement hunting for.

TL;DR: A really good game, with a good story, and passable combat.

On a serious note, this isn't a very challenging game. It's more of a novel than anything, and for 3 dollars, i would greatly reccomend it for killing a few hours of your time with it's great story.

How much is a smile worth?

LiEat is a non-linear title with mild horror themes. It's a "story-based" game, which is to say, the "game" aspect is merely a vehicle for literally everything else. It's technically a Japanese-style RPG, but the battles are a mere formality; combat rarely amounts to more than holding down the Confirm key until they end, with very little strategy except in rare situations, and even those can be circumvented entirely if you're of the mind and find the right items. I'm normally averse to these sorts of titles, a firm believer that a game that doesn't focus at least in part on its gameplay is a waste of a game, but LiEat appropriately made a liar out of me, and my annoyance with that fact is matched only by my gladness at being wrong.

I didn't quite know what to expect when getting into this one, but I can say that whatever I could have guessed it was would've been wrong with room to spare; LiEat is surreal, strange, sometimes creepy, sometimes silly, yet consistently, if I have to admit it, charming. Developer Miwashiba uses each "game" to tell a tale of the ongoing travels of a humanoid dragon child who subsists off of the lies of the others, and her cynical, conniving, big fat liar of a caretaker, as they travel the land in search of the world's most valuable commodity: information. Our liar's muddy morality and views on the world are intriguing, and his foil is one of the most legitimately delightful child characters in any work of fiction I've encountered; rather than being smarter or tougher than you could legitimately expect her to be, she's reactive, naive, and even a little dense, yet without being grating, and while she's hyper-idealized, I'm willing to bet you're not going to care. I swear that if I didn't know my own kid wouldn't be the most insufferable thing ever just to spite me, I'd want one just for the off chance it turned out something like her.

This is all conveyed well by translator and localizer vgperson's mostly enjoyable interpretation of the games' quirky dialogue, the writing of which is consistently engaging and thematic. Like its plot, the original score is unusual, yet enjoyable, the setting is foreboding, yet inviting, the characters are mysterious and enigmatic -- save for one mentioned above -- and the plot isn't fully explained. Rather than fall prey to being confusing as a result, though, the whole thing ends up interesting, and every interaction teaches you more about LiEat's strange world and its inhabitants, which is impressive given that each of the three extremely short games take place in one area each. There's little exploration, no adventuring, and no questing; you're presented with a self-contained mystery to solve, and the game is over as soon as the case is closed. Each game features at least one bad ending, and one "real" ending, and after the latter, you either move onto the next game after a visit to a gallery room, or run out of games.

The result is probably unlike anything you've come across, even among the independent scene. There's no soapbox for it to climb upon, no deep, hidden meaning for people to form a cult around and talk down to others over, no quirky fetishes to pander to, and no nerd culture to propagate; it's just a story of two people and the people they run into, but it was enough to get a couple legitimate laughs out joy out of this grouchy old fart, and again, this isn't even my kind of game.

So how much is a smile worth? Turns out the best ones are free, but three dollars was a fair price, too.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't think that if you've read this far, you'll agree.

* Note that I'd previously played this game from an alternative source, which is why my total time played is low as of this writing.

The best $3.29 (CDN) I ever spent. Seriously, LiEat is one hell of a bargain.

Basically you're a wandering vagabond with a loli dragon girl who can eats lies. Using this power they solve mysteries and find out more about themselves along the way. Game is seperated into 3 short parts or "chapters" and can take a good 8-10 hours if you interact with everything and aim for most of the achivements.

+ Fast, smooth, responsive gameplay & controls
+ Music & Ambiance really fits and sets the mood (Bonus: Soundtrack included in Steam>Library>Music)
+ Well crafted story and lore
+ The pixels, CGs, cutscenes & character portraits all fit together well and create a unique and charming style
+ Lots of hidden dialogue and stuff to interact with + achievements

- Combat can be a little repetitive at times
- The hidden Legendary weapons are super OP

Overall, I'd definitely recommend LiEat, it's short, unique, charming and sweet.

I bought this game because my friend had recently, and he said it was good. 3 dollars was a low price, so I bought it, and didn't expect it to be a good game because of the price. It then sat there for several months, until today, June 20th, 2016, I downloaded it and played it. It was unbelieveably good. It was not what I was expecting at all, I expected a semi-long JRPG with flashy anime characters. What I got was a short, amazing filled story that I immediately fell in love with. The gameplay might be a little bit on the underdeveloped side, but the story beats the hell out of that. I would go into detail explaining the two amazingly crafted main characters, but I don't want to spoil this experience for you. Pick this game up for yourself and give it a play, you won't regret your decision. it only took me about 4 hours to 100% percent it, but it is one of my favorite Steam games I've ever played.

Don't let the "Loli" Steam banner fool you.

This isn't a JRPG that panders to the Loli-crowd. Instead, I'll hazard to say that LiEat (I, II, and III) doesn't pander at all. Instead, the developer focused on bringing us a solid and well written story. The story itself isn't anything amazing, and often, the mysteries solve themselves in the first act. However, what really kept it interesting were the characters. The characters are endearing, mysterious, and funny.

The game includes 3 Chapters. Each has multiple endings. The first two chapters each took me about 1.5 hours, and the last one stumped me for a bit when I couldn't get the Good Ending.

The BGM are great and sets the mood as well.

I highly recommend this to anyone looking to play a short game with memorable characters. Just don't expect this game to last you any more than 5 hours tops.

EDIT: Also, any achievement that includes Ranma 1/2 is gold in my book: Happosai~!

Cute game, good set of characters, and interesting plots! The 8-bit music tracks were well put together and add to the effect of the game! It's not always straight forward what you're supposed to do but it's not difficult to figure it out either. The game play is as expected for an rpg maker game type. Which is to say, it's good for the genre of game that it is! The game isn't very long but it makes up for what it lacks in length by the quality of the story!

Very cute and simple game! ( As expected by Miwashiba :3 )

I love his/her artstyle. The game is split to three parts and I enjoyed it fully!
You can play through it in about 1-2 hours, if you just want story. But even if not, the game can be played through very fast (check guides on how to make it very easy).
Miwashiba tends to make his/her games simple with lovely graphics.(it's not meant negatively, I love it)
His/Her games always have a little "trick" that makes ,as an example, obtaining items easier or being actually "invincible", to make the story stand out more.

If you want to play an short RPG-Maker Game, this is a great choice!

Do you like being a detective while your sidekick is a cute loli dragon girl that eats lies (black ghoul things) for a living? Then this game is for you.

Enjoyed it till the very end, wish the game was extended so I could cringe even more.

10/10 would wear a underwear over my head

💜 An amazing game to play for people who loves pixels, dragons, things cute, pastel colours and soothing soundtracks 💜
💔 The only bad about this game are the controls, it would be best if it would be explained at the start of the game. Which you kinda get the hang off it once you play further into the game💔
💜Overall it's just simply amazing! I strongly recommend for people to play this game💜

This is a title that is both stylistically charming and surprisingly engaging given its brevity. Gameplay is minimal, but the elements are familiar. This serves as a comfortable media from which to enjoy the narrative, and does so in such a manner that does not leave one feeling as though something is missing.

LiEat follows the story of Efina, a lie-eating dragon who appears to be between the ages of 3 and 5 (depending on the chapter of the game), and her caretaker 'Leo', an informant/investigator who assumes many identities in his trade. It is in this story that you get to learn along with Efina, discovering her world, about herself, and unraveling the lies of those she cares for.

While short, this is a title accomplishes quite a bit, and I think it is worth the investment.

This is one of my favorite Wolf RPG editor games, The gameplay is sorta linear. The characters are creative and memorable. The soundtrack and art style are amazing. there are three games (making the price a dollar a game). The games are short but it has multiple endings so there's some replayability. I highly recommend this game if you're looking for a small little adventure for a good price as well.
