According to the astute folks at CD-Action, the brothers behind Fntastic, the minds responsible for The Day Before, are already plotting their next venture. Eduard and Aisen Gotovtsev, the dynamic duo at the helm, have reportedly set their sights on a new project. A former employee of the studio, who spoke with CD-Action, divulged that the brothers were actively seeking "veterans" to join their ranks in crafting an enigmatic mobile game.
The nature of this mobile marvel remains shrouded in secrecy, owing to the controversy surrounding The Day Before. The Gotovtsev brothers, it seems, have chosen to extend their offers to all employees, unfazed by past squabbles or unfortunate departures. It's as if they're saying, "Come one, come all, as though nothing ever happened!"
But CD-Action is not the sole herald of this intriguing tale. The YouTube channel iXBT Games has taken up the mantle, delving deep into the tumultuous history of The Day Before while unearthing snippets of wisdom from the game's development team. According to their findings, the Gotovtsev brothers of Fntastic are indeed venturing into the realm of mobile gaming. Remarkably, some intrepid souls from the development team have chosen to embark on this new odyssey, undeterred by the rocky road that The Day Before had traveled.
As these reports come to light, we find ourselves standing at the crossroads of destiny, where one game's demise paves the way for another's emergence. The Day Before, in a cruel twist of fate, bids its final farewell to servers on the ill-fated date of January 22. A mere 45 days have passed since its grand debut, and yet, it meets its untimely demise. Fntastic, the studio behind the ill-fated venture, revealed that the game had stumbled upon financial misfortune, leading to the studio's unfortunate closure.
Once hailed as Steam's most-wishlisted title, The Day Before now lingers as a specter of unrealized dreams. Its release, like a thunderclap in a deserted wasteland, unleashed a tempest of "overwhelmingly negative" reviews upon the digital storefront. Disillusioned fans, no matter the number of hours invested, sought solace in the refuge of refunds.
Ah, but let us not forget the bizarre history that lies at the heart of The Day Before. A tale as twisted as a Möbius strip, it weaves a narrative of anticipation and disappointment, like a rollercoaster ride through the depths of human emotions. From the ashes of expectation, it rose, a phoenix promising a post-apocalyptic playground. But alas, the road was treacherous, strewn with delays and missteps, and the once-gleaming beacon of hope dimmed under the weight of shattered dreams.
Yet, dear readers, as we bid farewell to The Day Before, let us turn our gaze towards the horizon, where the mobile marvels of Fntastic's future project await. What wonders will they unveil? What adventures will we embark upon? Only time will reveal the answers to these tantalizing questions.
So, let us raise our virtual glasses to the Gotovtsev brothers and their undying spirit of creation. May their journey into the realm of mobile gaming be filled with triumphs and surprises, like a whimsical carousel of joy. And as we traverse the ever-changing landscape of the gaming world, may we find solace in the knowledge that even amidst controversy and closure, new beginnings await, ready to captivate our hearts and ignite our imaginations once again.
