Then, in terms of writing the script, the studio took the time to humorously analyze what fans would expect from such a production, the stupid decisions the player can make if they wanted to, and the real-life consequences that could cause the protagonist’s death. Finally, The Quarry should offer gameplay that goes further in interaction with the characters and the universe. For example, you will need to conduct an investigation effectively so as not to end up in jail. The program has several difficulty modes, just to avoid leaving casual players on the floor, offering a challenge to the regulars of the genre. Movie mode is even included to watch the game as if it were a movie without having to touch the pad. Practical for eating good ice cream at the same time.
