The Day Before Delay Follow-up

IGN has a statement from Fntastic co-founders Eduard and Aisen Gotovtsev responding to the furor over the news that The Day Before is being delayed again. The pair explain delaying the release was in the cards before news of a trademark dispute over the title. They also express indignation at the suggestion that the project is a scam or is somehow not what it is purported to be:
"We understand that some players, not seeing the whole picture, might have doubts about the game. Our whole focus has always been on the product itself. We’ve been creating the game for four years. All these years have been full of sweat and blood to make this game, and for many members of our team, it is unpleasant to hear such accusations.

"We didn't take a penny from people: no crowdfunding, no pre-orders, no donations. The game is fully funded by Mytona, one of the largest mobile publishers in the world, who checked the game's build at every milestone per our contract.

"We made a real inner breakthrough when we decided to go for big challenges from the bottom—so big that some people would consider them impossible.
