'Testament: The Order of High Human', an upcoming first-person Metroidvania action-adventure, announced


US-based developer Fairyship Games has today revealed their upcoming game Testament: The Order of High Human. The studio describes it as a first-person action-adventure RPG with Metroidvania elements set in a post-apocalyptic fantasy world. A teaser trailer was aired for the announcement:

Players will find themselves taking on the role of Aran - the king of High humans in the land of Tessara - as he serves as guardian of the realm. Aran has been betrayed by his brother, Arva, and robbed of his powers as the world around him is plunged into darkness and overrun by monsters.

Players will be tasked with regaining his powers and confronting Arva to restore Tessara to its former glory, upgrading his sword, bow, and magic abilities as they go to develop their own unique fighting style.

In short, Testament: The Order of High Human is a tale of a fallen king's journey to save his realm from darkness and destruction, which - as co-creator and studio co-founder Moe Naderi explains - pays homage to leagues of different games and genres.

Features of Testament: The Order of High Human include:
  • Experience an immersive combat style based around three different approaches, each one designed to offer their own unique traits that allows the player to rely on it to get through the majority of play.
  • Master sword game-play with a variation of destructive and elemental combos.
  • Take charge of 15 magic abilities including single-target spells, traps, Area of Effect (AoE attacks), Damage per Second (DPS), and defensive spells.

  • Take advantage of a grand XP and upgrade system that motivates players to fully explore every land and dungeon.
  • Experience unique gameplay areas with exciting platforming that reminds of the nostalgic excitement from retro 2D platformers.
  • Take charge of a brand new ‘Eclipse System’ based on gameplay entities called eyes of darkness and it consists of 3 different gameplay mechanics that can work separately or together to deliver exciting encounters and challenges.
  • Use more than 18 consumables at the player's disposal. These craftable items can effect the player's health and mana or create enhancements on the players belongings and surroundings. Using them together can deliver advantages to help players shape their own playing style.
  • Take on more than 40 main and side-quests, carefully crafted and relevant to the games consistent storytelling.
  • Experience strong and engaging storytelling with a nonlinear narrative style.
