Different endings to a story are always fun to have, and when it comes to games if it has several different endings, it makes it more fun and enjoyable.
The recently announced narrative horror game The Quarry will have multiple endings, as stated by Supermassive Games. When hearing this information people always think that multiple means two or three endings but The Quarry will have a whopping 186 of those.
Since every decision made by the player is very important for the gameplay, the developers had to create a 1,000-page script that includes every outcome of those said decisions.
Will Byles, director of the game, has said the following:
“Writing a branching narrative is a really interesting exercise. We write a full, hundred-page screenplay as if it were a movie. We develop our character styles, and once we’ve got that, then we can start looking at how we break that out into a full 10-hour experience. “Actors are used to, on a feature film, a hundred-page script, so when we send the actors the scripts they get very alarmed because they’re huge. The script for this is over a thousand pages. We have to shoot about 50 pages a day, which is unheard of. It’s just a mad amount of footage. But obviously, a lot of what they’re learning is the same thing again and again and again, but a different branch.”
The Quarry is scheduled to launch on June 10th, 2022, for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
