The Quarry is a teen horror slasher-turned-video game

Supermassive Games, the company behind Until Dawn , has a new game called The Quarry, 2K Games has announced. Like past entries from the horror-narrative-focused studio, players control every every twist and turn of fate that will come in the direction of the main characters.

The Quarry is a teen-horror game in the vein of cinematic slasher-films that features choice-based gameplay where every decision players make has the chance to heavily effect what will happen in the story next. One of the game’s main draws is that anyone can die at any time depending on the choices players make.

The game takes place during a party to celebrate the last day of summer camp. In slasher movie fashion, it gets interrupted by locals hunting the teens down. Players control nine camp counselors who have to lead them to their survival — or face an untimely fate.

The counselors and other characters will be a huge treat for any horror fans that decide to venture into The Quarry, as the game features an ensemble cast of Hollywood faces, some from the fear-filled genre. David Arquette of the Scream franchise, Lance Henriksen from Aliens, Lin Shaye of Nightmare on Elm Street, Brenda Song from Dollface, and others appear here fully realized in Supermassive’s CG style.

The Quarry is set to release on June 10 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. You can pre-order the game right now if you dare take a summer camping trip that may be your last.

Video game genres, explained
Link and Zelda under Hyrule Castle in "The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom."

Every entertainment medium uses genres to help people understand what a game or movie or song will be like before experiencing it. In a sea of nearly limitless content, this is essential for allowing people to more easily find the things they are interested in -- and to avoid the ones they aren't. However, genres also need to be broad enough to still be useful, meaning most things don't fit perfectly into any one box. Games are in an even trickier situation since genres can not only describe the tone and target audience, but also how the game is played. This has created a whole new set of genres and subgenres exclusive to games that can be quite confusing. We'll go over the most recognized video game genres, as well as some subgenres within them, to explain what they are and give some examples.

While we will do our best to organize games and genres in a logical way, it is still a subjective practice.
