A trailer for the recently released FIST: Forged In Shadow Torch has arrived. This comes in celebration of the new launch on Switch.
We have more information on the game below.
After the animals of Torch City were defeated by the Robotic Legion invasion in the War of the Resistance six years ago, former Resistance fighter Rayton the Rabbit kept a low profile. A friend’s arrest meant he had no choice but to put up his giant metal fist and fight back against those who oppressed him. Little did he know he would soon be caught up in a whirlwind of conspiracies involving the Legion, the Resistance, and the Rat Gang.
● Fluid maps filled with challenges to explore
Explore over a dozen unique areas in an Action Platformer (Metroidvania) style map. Complementing the core combat, puzzle-solving, and platforming mechanics are countless hidden rooms, secret passages, and shortcuts, with all sorts of rewarding challenges for players to complete.
Maps are loaded on the fly to avoid frequent transitions, making the huge Torch City even more detailed and vivid.
● An arcade combat system with seamless switching between three weapons
Fist, Drill, and Whip are three weapons with completely different combat styles that offer seamless switching between high combo, high damage, and long range attacks. Hit the enemy choosing the most appropriate form of attack for the situation.
Players will be challenged by dozens of distinct enemy types, each with their own weapons and attacks, all working together to bring down the player. Unique bosses with unusual fighting styles provide a new and unique gameplay experience.
●Diesel-punk aesthetic designed with Unreal Engine 4
The game’s diesel-punk aesthetic was inspired by diesel combustion engines that were mixed with an oriental cityscape from a bygone era to give Torch City a unique visual feel. The stark contrast between furry animals and sterile mechanical soldiers introduces the theme of conflict to the game’s story.
Realistic 3D visuals powered by Unreal Engine 4 combined with physics-based rendering take the Action Platformer (Metroidvania) genre to a whole new level of graphical quality.
FIST Forged in Shadow Torch is now available on the Switch eShop. A physical release is planned for September.
