Once you have found potential games on the database, there are excellent specialist accessibility sites that offer in-depth reviews to guide your purchasing decisions.

Lies of P is a fighting game where you try to survive in a dark twist on the Pinnochio story. You explore a gothic steam-powered world, fighting off enemies with well-timed moves and choosing whether to tell the truth or lie in ways that alter the story. It takes the Elden Ring formula but adds in the strange children's tale to create an uneasy combination of challenge and peculiarity.

In a dark, ominous world poisoned with fear and bloodlust, you play Geppetto's puppet as a mysterious voice awakens him. You're guided through the corrupted city of Krat and must discover the truth behind its fall by untangling the web of lies and deception surrounding the city's ruling elite. As you explore and fend off the machines sent to hunt you down, you talk to the locals and must choose whether to tell them the truth about what you've learned or lie and keep them in the dark.

Our accessibility examiner, Ben Kendall, first checked Lies of P accessibility a year ago.

NotesAccessibility Notes

Text is high in contrast but also very small and can't be adjusted.

There are no difficulty options and the game is designed to be very hard, requiring precise timings, rapid presses, button holds, and simultaneous button presses.

The game is also quite low in contrast at times and the way forward can be hard to spot sometimes, and enemies can occasionally blend into the background, making them hard to see and their attacks hard to anticipate. Although you can disable blood in the settings, there is blood as part of the backgrounds and locations that you visit that is not removed by enabling this setting. Many parts of the HUD are very small.

When you enter the menu, the game doesn't pause, only doing so when you enter the options menu after a further two button presses.

Although you can disable motion blur, there is a very strong depth of field effect on the game's opening cutscene. Some buttons you can press are only indicated via colour, which is important to note for colourblind players.
