About F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch

Six years ago, the Legion invaded and colonized the Torch City, which was originally inhabited by animals. Rayton, the former soldier in the resistance war, has been living in seclusion since then. After his friend is arrested, Rayton reclaims his mechanical fist and decides to fight back. Little did he know he would be involved in a much bigger scheme between the Gang, the Resistance, and the Legion. Developed by TiGames in Shanghai, F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch is a 3D Metroidvania action game with a rabbit protagonist wielding a giant mechanical Fist in an original dieselpunk world. A great number of puzzles and challenges are hidden in a sophisticated and interconnected game map worth exploring. F.I.S.T. features multiple weapons, magnificent combos, upgradable skills and provides a hardcore arcade-style experience. Unreal Engine 4 offers top-class visual quality with physically-based rendering and extremely detailed textures. The game met critical acclaim when the digital versions came out, with a current PC and PS5 score of 80 on Metacritic.
