Testament: The Order of High Human

US-based developer Fairyship Games has announced the studio’s new action-adventure RPG called Testament: The Order of High Human, which is set in a post-apocalyptic fantasy world. The game is currently in development, but when ready, it will be launched on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.

The announcement was made with a brand new trailer for the game, showing the original first-person story-based adventure that comes with strong RPG and Metroidvania elements. 

In Testament: The Order of High Human, you will find yourself taking the role of Aran, the king of High humans in the land of Tessara. Aran serves as the guardian of the realm but has been betrayed by his own brother, Arva. Robbed of his powers, Aran finds the world around him plunged into darkness and overrun by monsters.

While the premise of the game is about a king who wants to restore his land to how it used to be, the game’s co-creator and studio co-founder Moe Naderi explained how Testament: The Order of High Human pays homage to leagues of different games and genres.

Your main goal is to regain Aran’s powers and confront his evil brother Arva to restore Tessara to its former glory. Upgrade your sword, bow, and magical spells as you develop and fight using your own combat style.
