For The Quarry, the latest story-driven horror game from Supermassive Games, the campfire setup is partially an homage to '80s-era horror and teen slasher movies like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, and of course, Friday the 13th. It's also partially a case of not fixing something that isn't broken. In fact, a lot of The Quarry will be familiar to anyone who's played Supermassive's other games: 2015's Until Dawn or the three games of the ongoing Dark Pictures anthology series. Supermassive has a pretty specific formula that works for its brand of cinematic adventure game, and it doesn't deviate from it with The Quarry--meaning that if you like its other games, you should have a fun time with this one.

While The Quarry doesn't make any drastic changes to Supermassive's attitude to horror games, a strong cast and solid writing prove that approach still works just fine.
