F.I.S.T.: Forged in Shadow Torch

Dieselpunk Metroidvania game F.I.S.T.: Forged in Shadow Torch will launch for PlayStation 5 in addition to its previously announced PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam) versions in spring 2021, publisher Bilibili and developer TiGames at The Game Awards 2020.

Here is an overview of the game, via its newly launched Steam page:


Six years ago, the Machine Legion invaded and colonized 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 forcibly arrested, Rayton reclaims his mechanical fist and steps into his journey fighting back. And he never expects that he has been involved in a bigger scheme between the mafia, the rebellion, and the legion.

Sophisticated and Interconnected Game Map with Countless Secrets

Explore a Metroidvania game world with a dozen of areas with distinguished vision themes and level designs. Earn the rewards by conquering combat challenges, puzzles, and platforming in countless chambers, tunnels, and shortcuts.

Arcade-Style Combat System with Three Unique Weapons

Dozens of enemies wielding their unique weapons challenge you with exquisite cooperation tactics, and various bosses with totally different combat patterns provide you a never-repeated experience.

Unique Dieselpunk Aesthetic Powered by Unreal Engine 4

The combination of dieselpunk aesthetics and oriental-style architecture constructs the core visual style of Torch City, exposing the world with the intense conflict between the furry animals and the mechanical army from their appearance to the nature.
