February 18, 2020 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – LionWing Publishing is excited to announce that their latest tabletop game Testament is now live on Kickstarter. From Japanese publisher ManifestDestiny and designer ‘Kuro’—creator of Unicornus Knights, Ars Alchimia, and The Ravens of Thri Sahashri—Testament is a fully cooperative, card-based dungeon-crawler that features deep character customization, tactical battles, and tough boss fights. LionWing has partnered with Japanime Games to publish the English version of Testament for the Western market.
Taking inspiration from MMORPGs, and in particular Final Fantasy XIV, Testament’s core design is built around the “trinity” system found in such games, which emphasizes party combat roles like tanks, damage-dealers, and healers.
In Testament, players team up and control individual heroes to battle through six stages, first fighting through smaller monsters and then facing off against a massive stage boss that mimics the complex “raids” for which MMORPGs are best known.
Testament comprises six stages in total, with each one taking about an hour to complete and provides players with the ability to play single, one-off scenarios or string several together to create a campaign, with characters leveling-up after the completion of each stage. Testament supports up to four players but can be played entirely solo as well.
The game will only be available through Kickstarter and Japanime Games' webstore (and at conventions), and will not be receiving a traditional retail release.
