Supermassive’s next horror game The Quarry will have 186 different endings

The release of Supermassive Games’ new narrative horror title, The Quarry, is just over a month away, and game director Will Byles spoke about some of the challenges developers and players face when they attempt to build a branching narrative that can be affected by player choice.

In an interview with IGN (thanks PushSquare), Byles reveals that The Quarry will have 186 different endings for players, with the stories that the game’s nine characters can have being “wildly varied”. Byles also reveals that the actors working on The Quarry were given a script of “over 1,000 pages” – they usually work with a script of around 100 pages – and they record up to 50 pages a day in some cases. .

Of course, The Quarry is highly unlikely to split into 186 incredibly distinct endings, that would be a technical impossibility. These endings will likely just be different permutations of very similar endings, but each character will have a different relationship to the others depending on your actions throughout the game. Then there’s the fact that all nine playable characters can actually die, so there are many different combinations where some might escape unscathed where others did not.

Still, if that sounds like a bit too much work, you’ll be glad to know that The Quarry will also feature a movie mode. The “Director’s Chair” option will allow players to simply watch events unfold while being able to decide where the story is actually going – a great option for those who just want to sit down and watch a good movie old fashioned horror.

The Quarry will launch on June 10 later this year for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
