One of the most eagerly anticipated Steam projects is shrouded in gloom. The Day Before vanished from the Valve platform, which for many users turned into a blatant indication that something is wrong. In the meanwhile, the designers comfort fans and encourage them to refrain from making accusatory remarks.
The Day Before was scheduled to debut on March 1, however, Steam does not have the game. The main Valve platform website will be automatically redirected when you attempt to access the game’s subpage. The community, which has long followed the movements of the Fntastic studio, started to feel a little anxious because the scenario is unusual.
Some users recognized a ruse and likened the situation to Abandoned, a legendary project that was formerly connected to Hideo Kojima and inspired high hopes. Since the game didn’t even receive a demo version, that’s really where it stopped. Many hypotheses contend that the game is a giant con.
Are we seeing something similar with The Day Before? At first, the creators pleaded with the community to be calm, saying that it was only a Steam bug:
“Our game is presently not showing up on the Steam store page due to minor technical difficulties. This is a well-known problem that has previously impacted a lot of games. Please be aware that Steam typically has maintenance on Tuesdays, and that’s when this problem will probably be fixed.
Requests to stop transmitting “negative messages” were issued to recipients at the same time:
“We strongly request that you refrain from making disparaging remarks or supporting others’ accusations. You may be confident that after the maintenance is over, our game will be accessible in the Steam Store once more. Patience.”
However, it’s difficult to avoid having the notion that the situation raises some questions. The Day Before’s release was delayed to November in a statement released by Mytona and Fntastic after the entire incident became public. The challenges brought on by the lack of trademark registration for the game are the primary cause of such a huge delay.
