With its release a few weeks out, Supermassive’s The Quarry is an interactive movie of sorts that draws on all of the classic teen horror vibes of the 80s and 90s - distilled for modern gaming hardware. Ahead of its launch we got to play through a section, and yeah, it’s safe to say that this is shaping up very nicely.

A snippet.

For those that haven’t played this style of game before, it’s less a Telltale-like narrative-driven adventure game with puzzles than it is a straight-up interactive movie where the interaction part is pretty much a reaction. It’s a style we’ve seen before, from Supermassive and others, but it’s also a game that really leans into the capabilities of modern hardware, with near uncanny-valley-like digital performances from recognisable actors.

A cast that includes David Arquette (Scream), Ariel Winter (Modern Family), Justice Smith (Jurassic World), Brenda Song (Dollface), Lance Henriksen (Aliens), Lin Shaye (A Nightmare on Elm Street), and more.

From a visual perspective, The Quarry impresses even more so than Supermassive’s most recent The Dark Pictures entry. From character and facial animation through to the wonderfully cinematic lighting and genuine atmosphere found in each of the locales, it doesn’t take long at all before you’re hooked into the world and characters. Granted, some of it is on the verge of “too realistic so it’s a little off-putting”, but for the most part it’s impressive and above all, immersive.
