If you’re someone who loves exploring a fantasy world, solving mechanical puzzles, and fighting off goblins and ogres with swords and spells, there’s a new game that you must watch out for – Testament: The Order of High Human. The latest trailer of the game gives us a glimpse of what we can expect from it. The trailer is a blend of various fantasy games, including Skyrim, Elden Ring, and Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, but with a smaller budget.
What To Expect?
The trailer doesn’t show a lot of gameplay, but there’s plenty to explore on the game’s Steam page. One of the gifs on the page shows a player fighting off goblins with a sword and then using electric shock effects to stun them. The player then finishes off the mob with an explosive arrow. The combat system allows players to combine different weapons and spells quickly to defeat monsters. The knockback feature gives the game a Dark Messiah of Might and Magic vibe.
Another gif on the page shows a player solving a puzzle by casting a spell on a hovering gem, which causes obsidian chunks to come together to form a cube. The game will feature massive, mysterious chambers that players must solve puzzles to beat.
The Wheel of Consumables
Testament: The Order of High Human also features something called “the wheel of consumables.” This feature allows players to craft and quickly apply enchantments to their weapons, making their arrows deadly, and their swords emit flames or other magical effects. The best part is that players don’t need to open an inventory menu screen to supercharge their gear on the fly.
Testament: The Order of High Human has been in the works for a while, as evident from its Kickstarter page from 2019. However, it didn’t secure enough funding back then. The game’s release date is still unknown, with the only clue being “coming soon.” Hopefully, we won’t have to wait too long.
Testament: The Order of High Human looks like a promising addition to the fantasy game genre. Its combat system, puzzles, and enchantment features make it stand out from other games. With its release date still unknown, players can only wait with bated breath to explore the game’s fantasy world.
