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.

I don't want to hype this game (because hype ruins everything), but for the record, LiEat will always have a special place in my heart.

What you get when you purchase this game is actually three games. Or you might say the game consists of three episodes. Each episode has its own self-contained plot, and there are a few questions or over-arching plot threads that persist across each episode, so it's not *entirely* episodic. The combat takes a backseat to storytelling. It's simple turn-based, and not really difficult. But it really doesn't add anything to the game or take it away. It's just kind of there.

The stories, even if you find them predictable, you will find well-executed. The game just throws you straight in, and uses a great combination of character interactions and the events in each episode to give the player information on who Leo and Efi are and how their world works without bogging down the experience with tedious heaps of information. These games reward exploration. Even if you are not required to speak to a character again, often visiting them again after the story has progressed a little will reward you with new and interesting dialogue. I personally enjoyed all the characters, Efi especially :P

The art is adorable and the music really brings the atmosphere together. There is a good balance of humor, and seriousness in this game. This game's only crime is being too short. It's only $3 and imo it's worth more than that. Buy this game. It's good.

There isn't an RPG I know of that has held such charm and innocence above it's rather darkly surreal world like LiEat. You play as Theobald Leonhearts and his dainty companion Efina through 3 games, each taking place after one another. You follow them through 3 different settings each one sprinkling you bite-sized bits of Theo's and Efi's personality and past while foreshading a deeper meaning to your adventures. Each game plays the same way only differing in story and setting so the game will be evaluated in a general sense.

The sound design in the game works well but isn't anything special at all. It gets moody or bright when it needs to be. Overall the music seems to give off the feeling of bittersweetness which is fitting for the game.

The art design is what you would expect from an RPG Maker game however LiEat sets itself apart from the others with it's brief animations which are usually used to introduce a character for the first time or during key events. The static images that are sometimes used instead of an animation in these sequences are okay, they usually feature a character posing cooly. My only gripe here is the character portraits that appear when one of them is talking. They are cool looking but are harsh on the eyes to make out the smaller details in them.

The gameplay here is what you expect of an RPG with a little twist where you can decide if you indeed want to engage or not in combat beased on being given an option to decided whether or not a lie is genuine or not. This makes the combat pretty much optional save for the bosses and the few unavoidable fights. However the ending you recieve can be determined by your character level but unfortunetly the enemy scaling is really bad. All the enemies save for boss characters are lies in a physical creature-like form and it is possible to get strong enough to destroy the bosses by grinding on the weakest enemies.
They just give you way to much exp and this becomes more apparent each game the first being the most balanced in my opinon. I also find it odd you get money too but never use it for anything. The game progresses for the most part by speaking with characters or checking objects in a sequential matter which is sometimes boring to be honest. Sometimes this leads you to pressing 'Z' on everything you come in contact with or searching around far too long. This also led to me finding the legendary weapons in both the 2nd and 3rd games which was pretty cool because they were hidden invisibly but they really break the game and I don't recommend even picking them up unless you just want to enjoy the story. In the second game you can find the legendary weapon on the second screen right at the beginning which is very unfortunate but the thrid game fixes this.
Overall the gameplay is fine if a little imbalanced and sometimes mundane. It seems comfortable not taking the idea of deciding which lies are genuine further than a plot device rather than a real fight mechanic. I liked that Efi follows you like Pikachu would in the old Pokemon games but was dissapointed that I couldn't turn around to converse with her.

The story is the meat of this game in my opinion but it sure takes it's time selling you on it and I really felt like most of it was in the 3rd game while the other 2 were just primers for the big drop. It's not the best but not the worst and once I was learning more about Theo and Efi I definetly wanted more and the game delivers well on that part. This game contains interesting lore where dragons are born with human appearences and each with a special ability and it delves a bit into the idea but often I found that the abilities were pretty lame. For the most part the characters you engage with are interesting and have a personality that is acceptable but they are mostly forgettable. Sometimes the dialog makes no sense given the context an example of this is the responses you get from the maids after completing the investigation on them in the 3rd game. The most enjoyable moments here are the interactions between Efi and Theo.

LiEat is an RPG mostly centered around it's story and the relationship between the two main characters. The combat is almost optional and could use some work to balance out. The settings could be better since the 2nd and 3rd game's are too similar. It is thematicly cute feeling but keeps a dark and surreal tone when it comes to the plot devices which was pretty neat. Overall it is enjoyable but rough around the edges at times. You can tell if this game is going to be enjoyable for you almost immediatly. I say follow your gut on whether or not you want to play this one because it is an experience that is varied but what is appealing about it very apparent and doesn't stray far from that.

For me this was a 6/10 slightly above average but could have been a 7 if the game had a little more strategy involved in the combat it was just too much of a breeze. I enjoyed it in parts but didn't in others but I'd still recommend becasue the price is very fair for what it offers.

LiEat is a story-based game comprised of three somewhat short stories. There are some RPG gameplay elements to it, but I would say the main focus would be the stories.

I like it. The characters within the game are interesting and have their own unique traits. The stories connect to each other and build upon the game's world, which I appreciate. The only negative I saw was one portion of the first story had fairly dark coloring that made it difficult to navigate, but that was not an issue in the other stories.

I would recommend this game if you want to experience a few short stories about a conman and a lie-eating dragon.

Here we have an odd one but a very good odd one. For starters, the game looks like an RPG but it could practically be a visual novel. It has the entire RPG coat of paint with stats and equipment and such but none of it really matters since there's almost no fighting. You actually aquire equipment faster than you can use it and collect more restorative items in one playthrough than you would need for 10 playthroughs. In other words, it's all about detectiving and the story.

You play a conman/detective who is a habitual liar and also as a young dragon who looks about 5 or 6 but is actually just a year old. Said dragon eats lies but she can't eat Mr. Conman's lies since the person has to admit the lie and she has to know it's actually a lie before she can eat them. So this game has 3 chapters and with each new chapter the duo move to a different town where Mr. Conman dons a new identity and they have a new mystery to solve. It's all well-written and interesting.

There are some flaws, though.

First, in Chapter 1, there was a point where you had to identify lies and clues were hidden in the area to help with that. I thought that was cool but it turns out that sort of mechanic was not really used after that. It would have been nice to have that mechanics used a lot more and in more clever ways. A lot of the time you're just guessing, the answer was spoon-fed to you or it's a "clean up the lies" segment where everything is a lie and you don't have to worry about getting it right.

Second, TINY TINY window. If there's a way to run this game fullscreen, I never found it. Not even Alt+Enter works. The game normally runs in a 640x480 window.

Other than that, I would highly recommend the game. All three chapters can be done in 6 hours or less but for $3, that's still a good deal.

LiEat is an AMAZING game. Reminiscent of Final Fantasy 1 and 2, the game is about efina, a dragon girl that can make lies manifest and eat them, who follows around her, unoficial adoptive father. The duo goes from town to town solving mysteries and getting information.

I got the game for on sale bit i would certainly pay full price!

Cute story, Cute characters, definitly reccomend!

Roughly 4 hours of content for 3 dollars. So far as content goes, it's a steal. What makes this game even more fantastic is the story, music, and visuals. The story is a unique and interesting concept, the music fits perfectly, and the art design of the game is phenomenal. It was probably made in RPG maker, but for what it's doing, RPG maker is perfect.

If there was a neutral I'd give that instead of this solely for the absolutely self-destructive good end requirements for the third game, but as it is the story saved it.

Fantastic game, simple and cute, even though it was kinda short, the game was amazing and the history was intriguing at all moments

10/10 would buy the game again just to support the developers. (a sequel would be marvelous)

A wonderful JRPG trilogy with excellent storyline, cute anime CGs, and amazing soundtrack(a little bit repetitive though, if you are poor at puzzle-solving). Contains light RPG element(easy enough if you have the basic sense of RPG) and some puzzles. The story might appear to be confusing at first, but gets well-explained through Episode 3. I was really moved!

LiEat is divided into three games. Each game takes roughly 90 minutes for a total of four and half hours.
The length of the game is short but it is more than enough to captivate the player into the world of LiEat.
The gameplay is quite simply where as its concept is quite interesting.
The music adds a nice touch to the whole game.
Overall great game.

A short, charming RPG.

It's definitely not all that challanging, you have to make an effort to lose for some acheivements and the puzzles are very simple, so it's a pretty laid back play. Some things could probably be a tad more coplex (You could see through the plot pretty easily so there were no surprises there at all), but it's not really meant to be that at the same time.

The overall aestetic has a lot of charm to it: Good Soundtrack, likeable characters and an interesting world (the little that you see of it), and the animations that they use accationally are quite nice.

Pretty much the only thing I didn't like was how specific some of the puzzels where, such that you could go around and check all the objects and find nothing, but after you tal to a specific person then it's suddenly 5ft from where you are standing...but that's just me.

Definitely worth the buy for the price. Would definitely recomend for someone who likes RPGs, but is looking for a shorter, more relaxed play.

The LiEat trilogy is a very short but sweet tale of Efina the Lie-Eating Dragon and her guardian, whose name and face change with each passing town. Together, they work to... make money! Naturally, though, in a world with dragons, that's hardly ever all they do.

Oftentimes, people's lies start to grow as they continue to tell them. Ultimately, a person can become so lost in their lies that the lies take physical form, taking over the person in question and turning them into a monster. Whether by fate or dumb luck, our heroes almost always end up having to solve these lies and uncover the truths of the people they meet. However, even as they defeat the lies of others, the lies of a certain guardian start to grow all too apparent...

All in all, this is a really cute and enjoyable story. It's very short, with each game taking roughly an hour to complete. However, it's a very charming little game with a lovable cast and a beautiful ending. ...Well, actually, there are multiple endings, most of which only appear if you fail. But the good ending is beautiful! If you're ever in need of a fun distraction, LiEat is definitely the game for you!

This game is somewhat misleading if you just go by the trailers. It's less of a traditional rpg and is closer to something like a visual novel/detective game. It is pretty short and it can be offputting if you are not in the mood for simple, sweet stories.

That said, if you enjoy:
- Creative RPG Maker games
- Well done art
- Cute things

then this game should be a few short hours worth of fun :)

Edit: The little girl on the front picture breathes fire not by roaring but by saying "GWOH". How is that not cuteness?

Buy this game. The characters are cute with nice back stories and personalities. There are little easter eggs to find and i just loved everything about it. Im sure theres another review that is able to explain the experience this game gives better, but i just love it so much. I would pay so much money for a longer version of this.
