The Quarry: How Interactive Narrative Games Bring Out the Best in Horror


I’m excited to say that The quarrythe new narrative teen horror game from Supermassive Games and the award-winning team behind Until sunriseIt will finally be released today!

For any player who is not familiar with The quarry, our premise is simple. You play as a group of nine teenage camp counselors who find themselves stranded for one more night at Hackett’s Quarry summer camp and decide to throw a party to celebrate their last night together. This rustic camp, nestled deep in the woods of upstate New York, just happens be devoid of many of today’s modern conveniences, such as cell service. What could go wrong? Naturally, the party quickly takes a turn for the worse as the councilors plunge into an unpredictable night of horror and find themselves chased by blood-soaked locals and something much more sinister. Throughout the game, you will be forced to make unimaginable choices and decisions that are often a matter of life and death. In The quarryany of the councilors can be the star of the show, or die before daylight.

To really make the experience come to life, we brought in a cast of Hollywood talent and horror legends to bring their expertise to these characters, including David Arquette (“Scream” franchise), Ariel Winter (“Modern Family”), Justice Smith ( ” Jurassic World”), Brenda Song (“Dollface”) and more. One of the questions we sometimes get asked is, why not just create a horror movie? What is it about interactive narrative games that makes them so suitable for horror?

For me, I think the core appeal of horror comes down to a question we ask ourselves all the time: “What would you do?” Horror challenges us to think about this question in extreme circumstances and allows us to see the consequences of our choices.

Movies and TV shows are linear: all we can do is watch, and the result is always the same, no matter how many times you watch your favorite horror movie. What’s so special about games is that it’s the only entertainment medium where you can really answer the question “what would you do?” yourself.

In The quarry, you’ll be faced with making all kinds of decisions, big and small, that will shape your story and determine who lives to tell the tale. Some of these choices will simply affect your relationship with your fellow camp counselors, while others can dramatically impact how your story unfolds, including determining who survives the night.
