- The Quarry is a new cinematic horror game from the masters of fright at Supermassive Games.
- On the last night of summer camp, the teenage counselors of Hackett’s Quarry are plunged into an unpredictable night of horror.
- Every choice you make has consequences and will shape how your unique story unfolds.
Now that The Quarry has officially been announced, I’m hugely 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 at an idyllic summer camp called Hackett’s Quarry. On the last night of camp, our cast of teenage counselors are plunged into an unpredictable night of horror and find themselves unexpectedly hunted by blood-drenched locals and something far more sinister. How this interactive story unfolds is shaped by the decisions you make while playing as each of the counselors, whether that’s in friendly conversation when things are calm or terrifying situations as the night progresses. You’ll be confronted 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; teenagers who have spent the whole summer working as counselors and are looking to unwind and party together before heading back to their daily lives. That’s assuming they survive, of course (and there’s no guarantee that any of them will). Fans of teen horror movies will definitely recognize some classic archetypes when you first meet these characters, though there’s more to them than initially meets the eye. I think where The Quarry‘s brand of interactive horror sets itself apart is the myriad ways these characters’ personalities can change as the story—your story—progresses.
Every action you take and decision you make has consequences, many of which are not immediately apparent. It’s not just the choices you make when confronted by danger that dramatically impact the story: even simple, seemingly unimportant interactions between characters are significant. There’s a butterfly effect to what you say and do, and you’re never quite sure when you might find yourself between a rock and a hard place facing a real dilemma. Whatever choices you make or paths you don’t take, the story continues on, resulting in a multitude of possible outcomes when things start to spiral out of control.
To really bring the whole experience to life, we invested a lot of time and effort into ensuring the game’s presentation—and even the character actors and actresses themselves—is of the utmost quality. The cinematic quality of this teen horror story is driven home by the Hollywood talent portraying the counselors and other key characters in The Quarry. It’s been amazing to see actors like David Arquette, Ariel Winter, Brenda Song, Lance Henriksen, and Ted Raimi—to name just a few—really bring our characters to life, not only with their incredible voice work, but also with the physical performances we’re able to put in the game using cutting-edge capture techniques. When combined with traditional filmmaking skills and a director of photography working on each shot, the cast’s performances make for a truly cinematic experience that’s 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’ve developed 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 in which each player controls one or more specific counselors, and an online mode (across the same console generation only) where choices are decided by vote. If you think some of the choices you have to make are nigh impossible when you’re playing solo, just wait until you’re confronted with them in multiplayer, where the story is shaped by the whole group.
For those of you who would prefer to kick back and watch a binge-worthy horror story unfold, we’ve also included a Movie Mode option. Here you can choose which of multiple versions you want to watch; and there’s even an option to customize the traits of each of the characters, enabling you to press play and see how your movie unfolds! Any character can be the star of the show—or die before daylight comes.
The Quarry will be available for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles on June 10. All of us at Supermassive Games are excited for you to get your hands on it, and we can’t wait to hear how your stories from summer camp play out! As the Hackett’s Quarry summer camp motto goes: What doesn’t kill you will make you stronger.
A Gummy’s Life Celebrates a Year on Xbox
- After a year of fun on Xbox, A Gummy’s Life is celebrating all the great moments with players!
- Join the event to find some amazing new looks to show off and remember the past year.
- Have fun and happy anniversary!
It’s been a year since we joined Xbox’s roster of fabulous games with the sweetest multiplayer brawler: A Gummy’s Life! And since then, we’ve shared many memories and updates together that we hope you’ve been enjoying both alone and with friends.
As the year has gone by, A Gummy’s Life has welcomed customization, pings for players, new languages, special events with cosmetics to celebrate holidays, online multiplayer upgrades and an endless list of other great features that have made the game even more fun for everyone.
This wouldn’t have been possible if it were not for all the players accompanying us through our journey, no matter when they joined. We will always be grateful for everyone’s support, suggestions, but most of all, love for the game and our team.
So, to celebrate our first anniversary with the Xbox community, we’ve been working on a little something for you. While a year might not seem like a lot of time, it has felt so special for everyone over at the team that we have been thinking about this moment for some months now. Although we are a tiny team and we don’t get many opportunities to say thank you, at least we can find funny ways to do it. Let’s celebrate!
First and foremost, we’ve brought back all of the limited-time and holiday cosmetics! You might not know this, but when we originally released these items, we did so for no longer than a week, to enjoy holidays and festivities in a different way. During those days, players had the opportunity to unlock special cosmetics by playing online matchmaking. Now, in our first anniversary, we’ve decided to bring them back once more so you all have the opportunity to get these limited items, even if for whatever reason you missed the previous events!
Plus, we’ve also brought two other items back from the last change of wardrobe (aka, that time when we switched up all of the unlockable cosmetics): the pixel sunglasses and the party hat. Since we knew they were pretty loved and give off party vibes like no other in-game item, we thought that they were the perfect fit for this kind of celebration, so, for a few days, they’ll be available again!
Finally, a completely new special cosmetic is waiting for you: a royal crown! Hope everyone can be a part of the anniversary by flaunting the shiniest of looks! The most amazing way to show that you got to celebrate our first anniversary with us and were a part of the coolest event to date! And, who knows? Maybe in a few years you can also use it to prove how long you’ve been with us!
Last, but not least, while this is already quite an awesome way of celebrating, we’ve made sure to make it even cooler. We have scheduled a new patch to come to the game in the next few days! With this new patch, we’ll make sure to celebrate the spookiest of months in A Gummy’s Life as only we can.
So, watch out for that too, and see you guys soon wearing that lovely royal crown!
Happy one year with us!
