Which the quarry officially announced, I’m really excited to share what I and the rest of the team at Supermassive Games 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 are plunged into an unpredictable night of horror and are unexpectedly hunted by blood-soaked locals and something far more sinister. How this interactive story unfolds is dictated by the decisions you make as you play as each of the counselors, whether that’s in friendly conversation when things are calm or scary situations as the night goes on. 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 is in your hands.

We have a total of nine playable characters; teens who have worked as counselors all summer and who want to relax and party together before going back to their daily lives. That’s assuming, of course, that they survive (and there’s no guarantee that any of them will). Fans of teen horror movies are sure to recognize some classic archetypes when you first meet these characters, although there’s more to it than meets the eye at first. i think where? the quarry‘s brand of interactive horror is distinguished by the countless 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 affect the story: even simple, seemingly insignificant interactions between characters are significant. There’s a butterfly effect in what you say and do, and you’re never sure if you’re faced with a real dilemma between a rock and a hard spot. Whatever choices you make or which paths you don’t tread, the story continues, resulting in a multitude of possible outcomes when things start to spiral out of control.

To really bring the whole experience to life, we’ve invested a lot of time and effort to ensure that the presentation of the game – and even the character actors and actresses themselves – is of the highest quality. The cinematic quality of this teen horror story is made clear by the Hollywood talent that plays the counselors and other main characters in the quarry† It was great to watch actors like David Arquette, Ariel Winter, Brenda Song, Lance Henriksen and Ted Raimi – just to name a few – really brought our characters to life, not only with their incredible voice work, but also with the physical performances we are able to deploy the game using advanced recording techniques. Coupled with traditional filmmaking skills and a director working on every shot, the cast’s performances deliver a truly cinematic experience that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.

We know that experiencing a thrilling horror story can be even more fun with friends, so we developed this the quarry with this in mind from day one. You can play with your friends in two unique ways: a local pass-the-controller mode where each player controls one or more specific counselors, and an online mode (for the same console generation only) where choices are determined by voting. If you think some of the choices you have to make are nearly impossible when playing solo, just wait until you face them in multiplayer, where the story is shaped by the entire group.

For those of you who would rather sit back and watch a binge-worthy horror story unfold, we’ve also added a movie mode option. Here you can choose which of the multiple versions you want to view; and there’s even an option to customize each of the characters’ traits so you can press play and watch your movie unfold! Any character can be the star of the show – or die before daylight comes.

the quarry will be available on June 10 for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles. We at Supermassive Games are all excited for you to get your hands on it, and can’t wait to hear what your summer camp stories are going to be like! As the motto of Hackett’s Quarry summer camp goes, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
