ORGINAL: On Monday it was announced that developer Fntastic was closing its doors just four days after releasing The Day Before in early access. But that may not actually be the case. According to data scraped via SteamDB, Fntastic appears to have changed its name on the platform to “Eight Points”.
Thanks to an uncovered Steam post from a Reddit user Tenith, it appears that Eight Points was the name of the studio before it changed its name to Fntastic.
Insider Gaming has reached out to The Day Before publisher Mytona for comment on the apparent name change of Fntastic, and if the studio did shut its door as it claimed. So far, no response has been received.
As of writing, all YouTube uploads as well as the Twitter account of Fntastic CEO Eduard Gotovtsev, have been deleted.
The latest update from Mytona is that it will work with Steam to provide refunds to all players of The Day Before who choose to request one. They also say they were “in contact” with Fntastic to discuss the future of the game.
