The Day Before has officially closed this week, marking one of the most disastrous launches in the gaming industry. The developer, Fntastic, has faced backlash on social media, with many accusing them of scamming. Despite attempts to defend the game, players are not convinced. The developer did offer refunds on Steam, but the damage had already been done.
Amidst the chaos, an independent developer, Crimson, has emerged with a project that has caught the attention of many. They have proposed a zombie survival game titled The Day After. The game’s trailer showcases gameplay that, despite being a joke, has been well-received by many. Some have even claimed that it looks better than the game it parodies.
Crimson has revealed that the project cost a total of $1,500 in assets and took about 300 hours to complete. However, they have no plans to release the build to the public. Despite this, the parody of The Day Before has brought attention to Crimson’s other work. They currently have two games available on Steam: Suit for Hire and Ronin 2072.
Suit for Hire is an action-shooting adventure with an isometric perspective, similar to Hotline Miami, and is already available in early access. Ronin 2072, on the other hand, is a roguelite with Cyberpunk aesthetics, but does not have a release date at the moment. While The Day After may not be available, it has helped shed light on the work of Crimson, and has brought attention to their other projects.
