After a certain noble “introduced the door”, he began to assist the dignitaries in various tricks to avoid exposure and win the game.

“Card shark” is a slang term used to call “playing card king”. There is also a similar common word “Card sharp”. According to the author’s understanding, the feelings of the former are actually neutral, including those with outstanding card skills. , the latter refers to the genuine “Thousand Brothers”, this work finally chose the former with a more complex meaning, and the name also directly echoes the main content of the game.

According to the propaganda, players will match the real simulation process in “Card Shark”, and the game has designed a variety of interactive actions to simulate the specific out-of-the-box techniques. Players are only required to use the action of wiping the table to indicate the suit color. Later, they will learn advanced skills such as changing cards while pouring wine, expressing complex information with different hand shapes that touch the goblet, and then controlling shuffling and so on. More advanced gameplay. Once the number of mistakes in the operation exceeds the NPC’s tolerance, players will be punished to varying degrees, ranging from daring to play the game to lynching, which also gives a certain sense of excitement to the game process; however, there are also media After the trial, he pointed out that some passages of “Card Shark” feel repetitive, and because the game’s guidance is weak (not a bad thing), players may need to make frequent trial and error in order to figure out the situation, which reduces the fun.

What is worth mentioning here is the unique artistic atmosphere of this work. Nicolai Troshinsky , an artist from Spain, participated in “Card Shark” and gave meticulous guidance in all aspects of the overall tone of this work. The outline of the story pays tribute to his love The Stanley Kubrick film “Barry Lyndon” – also a classic set in 18th century Europe, Troshinsky also uses his own unique ink style Animation adorns the entire work, with a soundtrack of Debussy, Bach and similar styles, shaping the immersive game world.


The Quarry / The Quarry

2022.06.10 / PS4, PS5, X1, XS X|S, PC

New work preview for June 2022

The latest product of British developer Supermassive Games. The team was formed in 2008. In the early years, it participated in the development of some Sony platform works such as the “LittleBigPlanet” series DLC, until they independently developed the thriller for the PS4 first escort. The interactive film work “Until Dawn” became an instant hit and made Supermassive shine on the stage of history. Since then, it has been deeply involved in the subdivision of thriller interactive films. In addition to the launch of “Until Dawn” IP derivative works on the PS platform , and also teamed up with Bandai Namco Entertainment to create a new series of “The Dark Pictures Anthology”.

In the author’s personal perception, Supermassive’s interactive movies have always had outstanding common characteristics: players need to make choices for characters when there is insufficient information, sometimes simulating character behavior through operations such as QTE, and the rest is observation The story goes, to see how the choices the player makes for the character shape their fate. The reason why the resumes of so many developers are introduced is because from the official propaganda and the media’s early experience feedback, the routine of “Quarry Fright” is in the same vein as the old work of the same family, and follows the thrilling interactive movie that Supermassive is familiar with: the gathering of nine protagonists In the strange quarry camp, while investigating, establishing relationships, and surviving, players need to simulate and complete some of the characters’ actions, or help the characters make decisions on some selection tendencies, and thus participate in the progress of the story and witness The final ending of the characters; similar to “Until Dawn”, all the protagonists may die, and the way of death is also blooming, which has become one of the biggest selling points of this work.

The development team is very fond of the “micro-innovation” in the operation mechanism of “Fright in the Quarry”. There are a lot of options to adjust the amount of operation. You can modify how many or which action simulation and QTE you want, so you don’t want to operate it. The amount of input is minimized by the players of the game. What’s more exaggerated is that this game even added a pure movie mode. The player can specify the personality of the protagonist in advance, and then there is no need to intervene in the process, and the character will make decisions independently. As far as personal tastes are concerned, the author accidentally catches a cold with this kind of work that deprives interactivity, but for friends who love murderous thriller movies and do not reject weak interaction, “Quarry Cry” should still be worth considering.
