Revealed to the public in 2015 with the Until Dawn interactive movie released exclusively on PS4, Supermassive Games has become a niche in the genre by continuing into 2017’s Hidden Agenda and the highly ambitious and asymmetric dark imagery anthology, of which the next episode is later to 2022. In early summer, the British paused their ongoing saga to come up with a new original story from their annual series. The story of the end of summer camp went wrong!
Video Games: Little Hope, the last suspense before the next generation
What does not kill you makes you stronger !
Laura and Max, two camp counselors who crash their way to Hackett summer camp, are rescued by a sleazy local sheriff (Ted Remy). Put them back on the road, and they will disappear shortly after they arrive, after being attacked by an intriguing creature with a human appearance.
Two months later, when the camp is about to end, Kaitlyn, Abby, Nick, Emma, Ryan, Dylan, and Jacob are forced to spend one night there the last night while they are out. Despite the manager’s (David Arquette) recommendations to stay locked up last night, the young coaches decide to celebrate on their last evening… An evening they won’t soon forget.
Khalifa Till Dawn, Deeper Than Dark Images Anthology
Well connected in its development, studio writing has progressed. If we omit some clips that were completely out of the game, like the one between the saw and the character presenting a surreal situation, the story is totally charming and continues perfectly. When all the puzzle pieces start to fit together, then you can fully appreciate the studio’s work.
In terms of gameplay, The Quarry does not reinvent the wheel. On the contrary, it takes the older scheme by offering to move only to explore, choose dialogue responses, and perform some contextual action. One key, crazy buttons, slightly oriented, no more than 3 or 4 keys following each other even in the most tense moments. Mass productions are open to the general public, More and more, it still lacks commitment to the players even if we are happy to live the adventure.
Alternate between stages or you will lead a single character or a small group, and new, you now have 3 lives to save someone from death and see that the different choices have a real impact on the story
Successful overall achievement
Breathing in the dark imagery anthology before the next part, Supermassive Games knows there’s a catchy title. The lodeography, the faces, the looks, and the stage are all highlighted and well aided by a five-star cast of David Arquette, Ted Remy, Justice Smith, and Lance Henriksen among others. It finally turned out to be surprising to some and very likable with just a few doses of humour. If we forget to completely lip sync with West which spoils a good sound. The water supply is completely missing.
A delicious snack to start summer
Very bloody in some clips, The Quarry has a great replayability with its multiple endings that allow you to save some or all of the characters. Many collectibles can be found to enrich knowledge and give you a chance to avoid future dangers, thanks to the fortune teller, a recurring mechanism in Supermassive games. Alone, up to 8 by passing the console to you, or as a spectator, The Quarry offers 6 to 8 hours for fans of the B horror series and they would really be wrong to deprive themselves of it. He is a real good representative of the genre!
