The Quarry

Platform: PC, PS4, PS5 and Xbox One

The Quarry is unquestionably the best game after Until Dawn. Supermassive Games produced many games after the release of Until Dawn, but they were unable to match the success of the original game. What sets The Quarry apart from the rest is that, unlike the other games, it retains the old formula; Virgin, the scholar, the athlete, the lady of the night, and the fool or some variant thereof. This was the formula of most 90s and early 2000s horror films. Apart from that, The Quarry has a unique werewolf story with many memorable characters.
