The Day Before Fails, Fntastic Studio Closure Announced, Players Demand Refund

Fntastic Studio, just days after releasing their game “The Day Before,” announced they’re shutting down. The gaming community is in a state of confusion and disappointment after the release of a promised open-world survival game turned out to be something entirely different.

“The Day Before” made it into the top 10 games on Steam, but not for the reasons you’d want – it’s swimming in negative reviews. The game, which was hyped to be an immersive survival experience, turned out to be more of an extraction shooter with limited elements of what you’d typically expect from a survival game. And here’s the kicker: there’s no melee combat. In a survival game. That’s like pizza without cheese – it just doesn’t feel right.

Now, let’s talk about the issues players are facing. The game is struggling to maintain 30 fps, which is kind of a basic expectation these days. Zombies, which should be a key threat in any survival game, are about as rare as a four-leaf clover – there are hardly any on the map. Loot? Scarce. Player encounters? Few and far between. Melee weapons? Non-existent. Progression? Nope. Simple actions like jumping over a fence? Forget about it. And let’s not even get started on the weird zombie mechanics and the glitches like falling through the map or vanishing inventories.

With over 19,000 negative reviews on Steam, it’s clear the community feels they’ve been handed the short end of the stick. Players are calling it a scam, and honestly, it’s hard to argue with them. The studio said they used all their income to pay off partners, but what about the gamers who shelled out their hard-earned cash for this game? They’re left with a game that doesn’t deliver on its promises and a whole lot of disappointment.

It’s a tough situation for any gamer to be in. You wait eagerly for a game, you buy into the hype, and then it falls flat. “The Day Before” is a cautionary tale in the gaming world – sometimes, what’s promised isn’t what’s delivered. Here’s hoping the gaming community can bounce back from this letdown and that future game releases don’t follow the same path.
