The Day Before is refunding every owner on Steam

The Day Before

Zombie MMO The Day Before recently launched to bad reviews and its developer Fntastic is shutting down. The game was so bad Valve is apparently refunding everyone that bought the title.

A new statement from the game’s official accounts notes publisher/investor MyTona is working with Valve and its Steam platform (the only place you could buy the game) to refund “all game purchasers.”

Alongside news of the mass refunds is the date on when the game is officially shutting down: on January 22nd of next year.

When the game was confirmed to be shutting down and its developer will close up, there was no indication of whether refunds were possible.

In fact, at the time its developer Fntastic said “all income received is being used to pay off debts to our partners,” leading many owners confused and even angry at the debacle.

Here’s the full word from the team:

Dear community,

We regret to inform you that the development company Fntastic has officially ceased operations, and as a result The Day Before will be retired and the servers will be turned off on 22 January 2024.

As previously communicated, Mytona, as the investor, has been working in collaboration with Steam to facilitate refunds for all game purchasers. For any players that have not already had their purchase refunded, Steam will now proactively refund all remaining players.

We extend our gratitude for the community’s support throughout the project’s life. Unfortunately, without a development team, we had no alternative choice but to officially close the project.

We sincerely thank all our supporters throughout this journey and wish you all a happy holiday season.
