The Quarry will have an amazing 186 unique endings

One of the joys of Supermassive Games’ titles is their focus on player choice and, as a result, the branching narratives that emerge with each playthrough. However, this means that there are several different endings that players can achieve, and The Quarry is no exception. In fact, an incredible 186 unique endings are written into the game. Look at my jaw dropped.

chat with IGNQuarry director Will Byles has broken down exactly how to make a game with so many variables and the actors’ impressive work.

“We write it like a movie script… Actors are used to a 100-page script [on a feature film]the script for it is over 1000 pages long. [The actors] can be very concerned,” revealed Byles.

“We have to turn 50 pages a day, which is unheard of. It’s an insane amount of footage.”

Much of this footage is repeated, requiring the actors to return to the beginning of the scene and then act out another possible path for the players to choose. So, as you can imagine, many charts were created to document where each character’s story was going at any given point in time.

“We came up with 186 different endings for these characters, not just alive or dead…the stories they have along the way through them are very diverse,” Byles said.

“Twigs really are a math nightmare. It’s just exponential.”

These branches can have large and small consequences. Some will significantly affect the overall arc of the story, while others will impact game relationships.

“We like the idea of ​​giving you context so you can have the exact same conversation but knowing that person just killed someone and that context changes, everything.”
