Set in a post-apocalyptic fantasy world, Testament: The Order Of High Human is a first-person Metroidvania action/adventure.

"Wake up guardian, wake up last savior. All the high humans have fallen. You are the last hope of this land. Bring order and wipe out chaos and darkness. The unspeakable has occurred, the unholy marriage of a High-human and darkness seed." 

Testament: The Order of High Humanis an original first-person, story-based adventure with strong RPG and Metroidvania elements. 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. 

Fairyship Games is excited to confirm that  Testament: The Order of High Human will launch on Steam and Epic Store for PC on July 13, 2023.

To celebrate the news, as well as releasing a brand new trailer - which you can watch here - the first publicly available demo of Testament: The Order of High Human will hit Steam Next Fest for free later today, opening up more than an hour of the game as it currently stands to anyone who wants to take it on.

“It’s amazing to be able to unveil Testament: The Order of High Human’s launch date after the best part of five years in development,” offers co-creator and studio co-founder Moe Naderi. “The reaction to the first trailer we put out last month has been immense, and we hope players are going to like our ‘melting pot’ approach of tipping Testament’s hat to some of the biggest adventure games from the last decade in play.”
