Epic Holiday Gift for December 26th: F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch

Well, yesterday was a doozy. In case you’re out of the loop, Epic Games offered Death Stranding Director’s Cut as the free game, before the servers went down and it was replaced with the standard version of the game. But never mind that! Today we have a game that looks fluffy on the surface, but it hides a dark and sinister interior. Let’s get to it!


The Basics

F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch (referred to as Fist from here on out) sees you play as an anthropomorphic rabbit with a metal arm on his back that’s as big as he is. The game is a 2.5D (3D graphics, 2D gameplay) metroidvania set in a dystopic world where the residents are oppressed by the government. You’ll traverse the world finding all sorts of upgrades for your arm so you can fis-NOPE! Punch! So you can punch your enemies in the face harder.


The game is free to claim only until tomorrow, roughly 23 and a half hours from now, so grab it while you can! Epic also likes to provide a hint for the next game to become free, so if you want to try decoding the following gift box, let us know what the next title may be:
