As you progress through Lies of P, you'll become aware of a specific underlying mechanic known as the Humanity System. Engaging in deceit or behaviors resembling those of a human, contributes to an increase in your humanity level, bringing you closer to achieving the "real boy" ending.
One method to elevate your Humanity level and attain the desired "real boy" ending is by locating and listening to various Records scattered throughout the game, and if you're on a quest to find all of them, we've got you covered. Below, you'll find a comprehensive guide detailing how to locate all the Records in Lies of P, along with instructions on how to listen to them and ignite the humanity within Pinocchio.
All Record Locations in Lies of P
In Lies of P, there are a total of 16 Records, each allowing you to play a new melody that aids in restoring Humanity if you've lied too frequently. However, obtaining all the Records in a single playthrough isn't feasible for two primary reasons. Firstly, two Records are tied to Eugénie's story, with each being earned by selecting either a Lie or a Truth option. Consequently, you'll need a second playthrough to acquire the Record corresponding to the answer you didn't choose initially.
Secondly, some Records can only be purchased from Wandering Merchants in New Game+ (unavailable in the first playthrough). Once you've collected all the Records, you must interact with the gramophone at Hotel Krat and play them all. You don't need to listen to each Record in its entirety; you can simply start one and immediately proceed to the next. Below, you'll find a list of all Record locations and how to obtain them in chronological order:
- Inside the House on Elysion Boulevard (Feel): Speak to a woman in a lit window who asks you to retrieve her baby. Return the item to her and choose to lie or tell the truth about the baby's cuteness.

How To Use and Play Records in Lies of P
Each time you acquire a Record in Lies of P, ensure you interact with the gramophone next to Polendina in Hotel Krat. Listening to the songs to completion earns you Humanity Points, which are integral to P's identity formation, making him feel more human.
This gramophone is available from the moment you reach Hotel Krat, so make frequent use of it if you wish to maintain your humanity during the game and attain the desired "real boy" ending in Lies of P.
