The weird public spat between gamers and developer Fntastic continues, as
development does or does not (depending on who you ask) progress on The Day Before
its planned open-world MMORPG. The studio recently released
footage intended to quell accusations of fakery. But there are skeptics who say
this video is faked as well.
It's not clear if this is related to the video and its reception, but a
strikes back at "disinformation." The company offers
neither details nor alternative information to
counter this unspecified slight, but says it plans to take a leadership
position on the topic down the road:
We all live in a time of disinformation and lack of
fact-checking. Anyone can say anything for views, and everyone will believe it.
Disinformation needs to be dealt with as it can harm not only us but also other
indies and small/medium studios. It also has a mental impact on the members of
such teams. After the release of The Day Before, we'll think about how to help
novice developers deal with fakes and allocate resources for this.
Destroying is easy. Creating is difficult.FNTASTIC
