Wow, another Supermassive game “The timeless counterpoint to the ‘practice makes perfect’ aphorism.” Games. Between Until Dawn and Dark Pictures Anthology, Supermassive has made great strides in the medium of choose your own adventure books, through the innovative and audacious technique of including the motion-captured faces of the least expensive celebrities to ever create an account. by cameo. His new game The Quarry is his most ambitious adventure book yet, there are three recognizable celebrities in it. Admittedly, with a combined screen time of about half an hour, but I’m guessing after the developers cornered them at a convention, they only had a limited amount of time before the bathroom door was smashed by bodyguards. I remember vaguely enjoying Until Dawn, I mean, for all that branching-road storytelling is supposed to offer, it had all the replay value of a traumatic amputation of a leg, but the overblown horror and terrifyingness of the characters gave me They gave it a certain slasher B-movie charm. I found the Dark Pricktease endoscopy to be one complete waste of time after another, so now, perhaps understandably, Supermassive has gone back to what worked and made Until Dawn 2: this time it’s in a haunted quarry.
