The combination of dieselpunk aesthetics and oriental architecture with the graphic power of the Unreal Engine gives Torch City all its flavor in FIST: Forged In Shadow Torch.
After the animals of Torch City were defeated by the invading Robotic Legion in the War of the Resistance six years ago, former resistance fighter Rayton the Rabbit has kept a low profile. The arrest of a friend left him no choice but to don his giant metal fist and fight against those who oppressed him. Little did he know that he would soon be caught up in a maelstrom of conspiracies involving the Legion, the Resistance and the Rat Gang.
Fist, Puño, Faust, Nyrkki, मुट्ठी, Кулак, 拳, Punho, Pięść, こぶし… And that is one of the three main weapons that Rayton uses. How about Rabbit? What is Rabbit 🐰 in your language? 😃https://t.co/Hh6sNhaTSl pic.twitter.com/G5ANKXt7HW

Yang Xiang, business development at TiGames, says: “When we started to portray the game world, we really tried to create a human protagonist, but we realized right away that no human would be as universal and acceptable to everyone as an animal character. Compared to the cat or the dog, the rabbit and its two long ears have a more identifiable shape in a platform game. But what is more important is that people think that the rabbit belongs to a weak and vulnerable animal race, so when a rabbit becomes a silent veteran wielding a huge mechanical fist, a significant conflict arises, thus was born Rayton. But why a fist? Swords or sabers are certainly very cool, but the fist contains a rage that you want to unleash against enemies in your path, especially when that fist is so disproportionate.”
