The Quarry has turn into one in every of my favourite video games to play within the evenings. The interactive drama horror recreation takes parts of Friday the thirteenth, werewolf tropes, and teenage slashers in an expertise that makes you need to replay it. As I completed my first playthrough, my favourite half grew to become the podcast factor in the course of the credit.
Spoilers for The Quarry forward!
The studio behind The Quarry, Supermassive Video games, is finest identified for Till Daybreak, one other interactive drama horror recreation. In the identical vein, with The Quarry, you play as every of the 9 teenage summer season camp counselors who must survive the complete Moon monster assault that takes place on their final night time at Hackett’s Quarry. As a personality, you make selections that influence the character improvement and relationships between everybody, and in the end strive to make sure your characters make it by the night time (or not). All 9 playable characters might survive or die relying on the participant’s selections.
Our camp counselors are Laura Kearney (Siobhan Williams), Max Brinly (Skyler Gisondo), Abigail “Abi” Blyg (Ariel Winter), Dylan Lenivy (Miles Robbins), Emma Mountebank (Halston Sage), Jacob Custos (Zach Tinker), Kaitlyn Ka (Brenda Track), Nicholas “Nick” Furcillo (Evan Evagora), and Ryan Erzahler (Justice Smith).
Early on within the recreation, Ryan is listening to a podcast, Weird But Bonafide, which talks concerning the “Hag of Hackett’s Quarry.” Gamers work together with the “hag,” performed by Twin Peaks alum Grace Zabriskie, once they get completely different tarot playing cards.
As you undergo every playthrough, you may accumulate proof and clues all through the sport. These might not appear essential, however find yourself having a payoff. You see, even if you happen to all survive the night time, if you happen to don’t collect sufficient proof/clues, the advisors get arrested as a result of it appears to be like as in the event that they murdered a bunch of individuals, moderately than defended themselves in opposition to a werewolf assault.
When you accumulate sufficient, in the course of the credit, the Weird But Bonafide podcast will play, and it is going to be impacted by what number of items of proof and clues you guys collected. It made for a enjoyable ending shock, and whereas listening, it made me desperate to play once more.
I like this little addition as a result of generally simply discovering in-game gadgets to unlock stuff can really feel tedious, and this provides it some payoff. The sport boasts 186 completely different endings, and I’m able to see/take heed to what a few of these are like.
The Quarry is just not good and has a little bit of a sluggish begin, however as I bought going, I bought invested within the characters, and that made each massacre tragic. Anyway, I’m off to hunt some werewolves.
