Confusion about “the day before” persists. The game has disappeared from Steam, and its premiere has been delayed for several months. The suspicious and unexpected situation surrounding the production of Fantastic has some questioning the existence of the title.
It is possible that in a few hours we will learn part of the “truth” that the Fntastic developers said a few days ago. According to the information given by a moderator about the game dispute, today at 19:00 we will receive the gameplay from yesterday (via: PCGamer). We don’t know if it will be the previously announced material withheld, because there are no details. The 10-minute recording has not been advertised for publication in any way on Fntastic’s social channels, and above Youtube We won’t see any countdown yet. So it remains to rely on news from Discord.

We haven’t taken a dime from people: no crowdfunding, no pre-orders, and no donations. The game was funded entirely by Mytona, one of the world’s largest mobile game publishers, which examined the state of the game at every stage of the project, the developers said.
The company fully focuses on development yesterday. The developers also guarantee this The new release date was deliberately scheduled much later to ensure that the legal turmoil was fully resolved:
