Verdict: A thrilling and scary horror
WHAT IS IT?
The Quarry is a survival horror interactive drama video game played from a third-person perspective. In the game, the player assumes control of nine different teenagers who must survive a night at the title location of The Quarry, a summer camp in upstate New York, Hackett’s Quarry.
The player must make different decisions, which can change the character development, the plot and the relationships between different characters. All nine playable characters may die by the end of the game, and each character potentially has 10-12 different ways to die. An average playthrough should expect to last for about 10 hours, though early death of certain characters may cause the game to end earlier at around seven 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.
Hackett’s Quarry is depicted as slowly falling apart. It’s initially designed to look like the most postcard-worthy version of itself, backlit by warm sunlight and spread out across acres of natural splendour. It’s a Hollywood version of the perfect summer experience, with colourful cinematography that makes the whole camp look like somebody’s cherished memory. Then the sun goes down, the woods get dangerously quiet, the rot gets more obvious and the nightmare starts.
