The Quarry Ending: How to Save Everyone

Much like Until Dawn, The Quarry features a huge cast waiting to be slaughtered. However, with the right choices, you can save (almost) everyone.

Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn is one of the scariest (and just plain best) titles to grace the PlayStation 4. Ever since that game won critical acclaim, Supermassive Games has tried to repeat that success with similar horror-themed narrative games that feature huge casts, plenty of choices, and tons of death scenes. The latest entry in their lineup of slasher trope-fueled adventures is The Quarry.

In The Quarry, players have to guide a team of teenage camp counselors to safety through relentless horrors. Life and death teeter on every decision players make, and the story is far from forgiving. One wrong move can result in a domino effect that ends up killing everyone. But, if players remain vigilant and make smart decisions, not only can they maximize the number of survivors, but they can actually make sure everyone survives the night. This is no easy task, but it is possible with a bit of experimentation and a little bit of luck. Alternatively, you could just read this guide.

Here’s every important narrative choice needed to save every main character in The Quarry, not counting QTE events. For the sake of simplicity, we will only cover story choices. Unless otherwise stated, do not fail any QTEs. Doing so can easily lead to a character’s death.

Furthermore, this guide is designed to help you keep Laura, Max, Abigail, Kaitlyn, Nick, Emma, Ryan, Dylan, and Jacob alive. If a character isn’t on that list, that means that it currently doesn’t seem possible to keep them alive.
