The Quarry is a survival horror adventure where nine people desperately try to survive a night at Hackett’s Quarry. Play involves making choices and conversations and actions, in the hope of keeping your group alive. It's a familiar set-up for a game, but one that stands out for production quality and the ability to team up with other players to make the right decisions to survive.

You play as nine teenage counsellors who stumble into an unpredictable night of horror. More than the blood and gore, it's the psychologically unimaginable choices they must make which is really disturbing. Play involves making decisions about conversations and actions. Each of your decisions shapes not only the fate of each character but the branching story. Will they be the star of the show—or die before daylight comes?

As you (try to) progress and keep them alive you are hunted by blood-drenched locals. The real concern is what more sinister things lurk in the world. You soon find the teenager's party plans unravel into an unpredictable night of horror. Friendly banter and flirtations give way to life-or-death decisions, as relationships build or break under the strain of unimaginable choices.

The result is a nail-biting story not for the faint-hearted. Believable performances and visuals raise tensions further. You can also play with up eight friends online, where each of you watches along and votes on key decisions, creating a story shaped by the whole group. Or there is the local cooperative experience where you each take turns with the controller to control one character's actions.
