- Crimson — a solo developer — has created The Day After, a parody project of The Day Before.
- This project cost him over $1500 worth of assets and 300 development hours.
- We interviewed David, also known as Crimson, to talk about The Day After and his future plans.
The Day Before has turned out to be an utter disaster by every stretch of the word, showing us how big of an impact false advertisement and lack of management can have on a video game project. Despite pre-launch suspicions, the released game was even worse than anyone could ever anticipate, with the title not taking long to end up in a dumpster fire situation. On the flip side, however, some have taken it into their own hands to give The Day Before a makeover in parodic fashion, and that is exactly what The Day After by Crimson is.
David, also known as Crimson, created a gameplay trailer for the parody project called The Day After. This took him around 300 hours of development and over $1500 worth of assets. Many people consider it much better than the original game, hoping to see this project becoming playable for everyone. However, that isn’t what Crimson has in mind, so we spoke with him over an email Q&A session, asking him about the parody project and what he intends to do with the assets in the future.
Read ahead for the full interview.
The Day After is a parody project by Crimson, and it shows how even with the efforts of a solo developer, one can create a title that can compete or even be better than a large-scale project if done right. The assets used in creating this project will likely appear in Crimson’s future projects, albeit in an original form.
