now that The quarry has been officially announced, I am so excited to share what myself and the rest of the Supermassive Games team have been working on. Our next chilling cinematic horror game takes place in an idyllic summer camp called Hackett’s Quarry. On the final night of camp, our cast of teenage counselors plunge into an unpredictable night of horror and find themselves unexpectedly pursued by blood-soaked locals and something far more sinister. The unfolding of this interactive story depends on the decisions you make as you play as each of the counselors, be it in friendly conversation when things are quiet or in terrifying situations as the night progresses. You will be faced with unimaginable choices as you play, and there is no right or wrong answer, just know that the fate of the camp counselors rests in your hands.
We have a total of nine playable characters; teenagers who have spent the entire summer working as counselors and are looking to relax and have fun together before returning to their everyday lives. That’s assuming they survive, of course (and there’s no guarantee any of them will). Fans of teen horror movies will definitely recognize some classic archetypes when they first meet these characters, though there’s more to them than initially appears. I think where The quarryThe brand of interactive horror is distinguished by the myriad ways these characters’ personalities can change as the story, your story, progresses.
Every action you take and every decision you make has consequences, many of which are not immediately apparent. It’s not just the choices you make when faced with danger that dramatically impact the story: even the simple and seemingly unimportant interactions between characters are significant. There’s a butterfly effect to what you say and do, and you’re never sure when you might find yourself between a rock and a hard place facing a real dilemma. Regardless of the choices you make or the paths you don’t take, the story continues, resulting in a multitude of possible outcomes when things start to spiral out of control.
To bring the whole experience to life, we put a lot of time and effort into making sure that the presentation of the game, and even the actors and actresses themselves, are of the highest quality. The cinematic quality of this teen horror story is enhanced by Hollywood talent playing the counselors and other key characters in The quarry. It has been amazing to see actors like David Arquette, Ariel Winter, Brenda Song, Lance Henriksen, and Ted Raimi, to name just a few, really bring our characters to life, not only with their incredible voice work, but also with the physical performances. we are able to put into the game using cutting edge capturing techniques. When combined with traditional cinematic skills and a cinematographer working on every shot, the cast’s performances create a truly cinematic experience that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.
We know that experiencing an exciting horror story can be even more fun with friends, which is why we’ve developed The quarry with this in mind from day one. You can play with your friends in two unique ways: a local controller pass mode where each player controls one or more specific advisors, and an online mode (only on the same console generation) where elections are decided by voting. . If you think that some of the decisions you have to make are almost impossible when you play alone, wait until you face them in multiplayer mode, where the whole group shapes the story.
For those of you who prefer to sit back and watch a binge-worthy horror story unfold, we’ve also included a movie mode option. Here you can choose which of the multiple versions you want to see; And there’s even an option to customize traits for each of the characters, allowing you to press play and watch your movie unfold! Any character can be the star of the show, or die before daylight.
