Less than two days after its launch, the horror title developed by Supermassive Games is already beginning to accumulate favorable reviews, praising the title’s setting and cast. In short, it bodes well for the British studio and, more specifically, for fans of terrifying narrative adventures. Like here at Weigh on start!
So why exactly are we looking forward to playing The quarry? We explain this to you.
It is a spiritual continuation of Until sunrise
The latest games from Supermassive Games, including those from the dark pictures anthologythey were fine, but nothing came close to the horror adventure that made the developer famous in 2015: Until sunrise.
Borrowing (a lot) from style movies slasher from the early 2000s, the title was able to brilliantly mix humor, edginess, and an atmosphere that was downright creepy at times. A nod to adolescent cinema from a time not too distant, Until sunrise it didn’t take itself seriously, while delivering a frankly compelling production.
In doing so, watch the craftsmen at Supermassive describe The quarry as a spiritual sequel to Until sunrise looks very promising. After the slightly shorter routes and somewhat less rich in surprises of the first three parts of the dark pictures anthologyso we can expect a more complete and daring game where each choice has more weight.
It is a tribute to the horror movies of the 80s.
nostalgic for the first Friday the 13th, outdoor camp, evil Dead and others The massacre in Texas? The quarry wants to be a true love letter to the horror movies of the 80s, both for its aesthetics and for its setting, although the game takes place in the present day.
Because let’s face it, a group of summer camp counselors who have to survive a night of being attacked by mysterious killers reminds us all of something!
In an interview with GameSpot, the game’s director, Will Byles, mentioned that the team was heavily inspired by various movies from the game. slashers classics, but also by horror films from other times. Still, while there will be plenty of nods to ’80s nightmares, there’s bound to be something for everyone… as long as you like to be a little scared!
There will be a dizzying number of possible endings
As in previous Supermassive titles, and especially Until sunrise, The quarry will offer an adventure dictated by the many choices the player will have to make during their journey. And after the somewhat more rigid narrations of the games of the dark pictures anthologythe British study seems to want to recover… and not for a little!
According to Will Byles, The quarry It will have no less than 186 different endings, with a scenario that would exceed the 1000 page mark! Each decision will therefore have a different scope, sometimes immediately influencing the player’s journey… and other times only having an impact at the end of the adventure.
One thing is certain, the horror game, which should take around ten hours to complete, risks having gigantic replayability potential. 186 finals, think about it!
A Hollywood cast leads The quarry
After starring in particular Rami Malek and Hayden Panettiere in Until sunriseSupermassive Games does it again with another excellent lineup of actors in The quarrywhich will definitely give the title a cinematic vibe.
Following a recent return to the franchise. ScreamDavid Arquette will plunge back into horror as the owner of the summer camp in The quarry. Another horror regular, Ted Raimi (Sam Raimi’s brother) will play the role of the local sheriff.
Among the interpreters of the camp monitors, Skyler Gisondo stands out (fair gemstones, licorice pizza), Ariel Winter (Modern Family), Brenda Song (Doll face), Evan Evagoria (Star Trek: Picard) and Judge Smith (Pokémon Detective Pikachu, the go down).
It will be a great game to play as a couple, with friends or in a gang
Despite its slightly more single-player profile, as Until sunrise and the three parts of dark pictures anthology, The quarry It will obviously once again be an excellent title to play with multiple people.
Why? Because there is nothing (or almost) more fun than arguing with another person about an important character decision, especially when the allotted time is running dangerously fast!
especially that The quarry It will include different multiplayer modes, both local and online. In person, players will take turns passing the controller, each playing as a selection of characters, while online, up to seven other people can join in the adventure by voting for each major story choice. Enough to give you a very unusual horror movie night!
