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.
