Fntastic also dismissed the idea that The Day Before didn’t do justice to the promotional materials: “We implemented everything that was shown in the trailers”except “Pairs of small functions” like Parkour (should appear in version 1.0).

When it launched in early access, Fntastic quickly fixed the biggest problems with The Day Before and published reviews in the first weekend “improved by 7% and could have achieved even more”but generated by some bloggers “Hate has already destroyed the game”.

According to Fntastic, the bloggers who created the project made money from The Day Before “inaccurate loud content”. At the same time streamers who “Neither criticism nor praise” I didn’t learn (like Dr. Disrespect), I actually enjoyed the game.

“The Day Before” was released on December 7, 2023, received scathing reviews, failed in sales, and closed on January 22, 2024. However, modders are working on the possibility of continuing the game after the servers are shut down.
