Today, we announce the closure of Fntastic studio. Unfortunately, The Day Before has failed financially, and we lack the funds to continue. All income received is being used to pay off debts to our partners.

We invested all our efforts, resources, and man-hours into the development of The Day Before, which was our first huge game. We really wanted to release new patches to reveal the full potential of the game, but unfortunately, we don’t have the funding to continue the work.

It’s important to note that we didn’t take any money from the public during the development of The Day Before; there were no pre-orders or crowdfunding campaigns. We worked tirelessly for five years, pouring our blood, sweat, and tears into the game.

At the moment, the future of The Day Before and Propnight is unknown, but the servers will remain operational.

We apologize if we didn’t meet your expectations. We did everything within our power, but unfortunately, we miscalculated our capabilities. Creating games is an incredibly challenging endeavor.

We’re grateful to everyone who supported us during these difficult years. It’s been a fantastic journey over the past eight years:
2015: Opening of the studio
2017: Release of The Wild Eight
2018: Release of Dead Dozen
2018: Release of Radiant One 2021: Release of Propnight
2023: Release of The Day Before

    Is there a source for any of this? Speculation is one thing, but Ive seen people claiming this was made in both unity and unreal, and that some assets are bought, then all assets were bought, that they were only working for 2 years not 5, etc etc etc

    Like I know it looks scammy, but whats the hard line people used to actually determine that?

    And theres got to be some hard line, since the dayZ team mocked them for this. I dont expect another company to mock a fellow game maker shuttering unless there was harder evidence that they were scammers beyond internet guesswork.
