With life-or-death decisions around every turn, the choices you make will determine how the story unfolds. The Quarry is being developed by British developer Supermassive Games. It was envisioned as a spiritual successor to the studio’s Until Dawn . The Quarry is heavily inspired by teen slasher and creature movies, and adheres to established horror movie tropes more firmly than The Dark Pictures Anthology, Supermassive’s other horror franchise. Creative director Will Byles added that while the game is set in modern times, “there’s a very ’80s feel” about the setting and the characters, citing movies including Sleepaway Camp and Friday The 13th as major sources of inspirations.
The locals living near the Hackett Quarry have a more “retro” feel and the team were influenced by films such as The Hills Have Eyes, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deliverance. Supermassive was also inspired by Evil Dead, and The Thing. The team wanted the game to feature horror movie tropes from different eras, and Byles went on to compare the game to a horror theme park. While the game pays homage to various horror films, the team learnt from their experience making Until Dawn, allowing the team to build up players’ fear through creating tension rather than relying heavily on jump scares. The game also features a Movie mode, which disables certain gameplay elements such as button mashing, quick-time events, and aiming and shooting, allowing players to progress in the game with minimum input. In local multiplayer, players take turns to control different characters, while in the online mode, seven other participating players can vote in key decisions.
Any character can be the star of the show—or die before daylight comes. If you find making life-or-death choices a bit too stressful, there’s also a “Movie mode” that drops the gameplay entirely and lets players choose how the story progresses. Play as each of the nine camp counselors in a thrilling cinematic tale, where every decision shapes your unique story from a tangled web of possibilities.
The Quarry is an all-new teen-horror narrative game where your every choice, big or small, shapes your story and determines who lives to tell the tale. Rated M for Mature by the ESRB, The Quarry is now available for pre-order. Hunted by blood-drenched locals and something far more sinister, the teens’ party plans unravel into an unpredictable night of horror.
All nine playable characters may die by the end of the game, and each character potentially has different ways to die. Supermassive expected the game to last for about 10 hours, though early death of certain characters may cause the game to end earlier at around 7 hours. Due to the game’s branching storyline, it has many endings, and at the end of a playthrough, players will be given different collectible cards that depict the fate of each character.
When compared to The Dark Pictures Anthology, The Quarry was designed for a broader audience and had a smaller focus on gameplay. As the sun sets on the last day of summer camp, the teenage counselors of Hackett’s Quarry throw a party to celebrate. Play as each of the nine counselors in a thrilling cinematic tale, where every decision shapes your story.
