The Developer Fntastic has been hyping up The Day Before community over the last few weeks with their promises of an Announcement Life at Fntastic and a Huge Premiere.
The Day Before released the highly anticipated video today, “Life at Fntastic” showing off the studio’s everyday life and development process.
Taking a look at the YouTube chat during the premiere of the video, it looks like fans of The Day Before were hoping for a bit more gameplay. As well as just more information about the game. It has been confirmed to still be released on 1st March 2023. We’re going to break down the gameplay from the video for you in this article.
The video Life at Fntastic was exactly 5:00 and had around 30 seconds of new footage of the game. We got our first look into the character creation screen. The UI in the game does look very minimalistic and the character creation seems to follow suit.
Compared to many character creation tools in games of 2022 and 2023, The Day Before Character Creation tool looks very basic. However, this isn’t a huge part of many FPS games, so I think we can let this one slide!
We’re shown an extremely quick look into the capabilities which we are going to assume are your skills. This is one way you will be able to customise your character in The Day Before. In the top left of the screenshot you can see the “skill points”. We assume you will be able to acquire these via some sort of quest or skill-based gameplay.
In the next clip we get to see our first look at the Gun Modifications and get a little look into how this will work. Again, we are met with a very simple UI, but it does look clean and user-friendly. This video is slightly longer, showing us a range of the gun modifications in The Day Before. It looks like we will be able to upgrade the Muzzle, Sight, Magazine, Grip and Butt. Of course, this may change depending on the gun.
Below this screengrab does give us some more information though. The guns will receive damage and require repairs. The gun’s weight is “2” and the size is “2”. In total, this character has a “3” weight and has “18/36” in his inventory (we assume this is the inventory).
Finally, we get to meet the NPC that will be supplying the players with guns and ammunition, The Gunsmith. Nothing else is really being given away here, but we can assume there will be other NPCs for players to interact with.
All in all, the video did what it said on the tin. It gave us an insight into the Developers Life at Fntastic. However, something definitely doesn’t feel right with the whole situation. We can only hope that Fntastic will step up the marketing over the next few weeks to give us players more insight into what the game holds.
