A Scooby-Doo Horror Game From Supermassive Is Too Good To Ignore

A Scooby-Doo Horror Game From Supermassive Is Too Good To Ignore
Warner Bros. | Supermassive Games

Jinkies, why has no one thought of doing a Scooby-Doo horror game before? The classic cartoon is still going strong some 53 years after Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! debuted for Hanna-Barbera, and although Warner Bros. has just cancelled the Scoob!: Holiday Haunt animated movie, there's a lot of love for the Mystery, Inc. gang.

It's true that there have been plenty of Scooby-Doo games over the years, while Shaggy Rogers has become something of a legend himself after appearing in LEGO Dimensions and MultiVersus. We're still holding out hope he'll appear in Mortal Kombat 12. While Scooby-Doo is usually about some meddling kids and their dog beating some lame villain and exposing Old Mr. Rawlingson hiding under a rubber mask, there are some pretty dark undertones that we're surprised haven't been explored.

Survival horror games are everywhere right now, and if we're not wetting our pants in Resident Evil Village, we're running away from Leatherface, Freddy, and Jason in Dead by Daylight. Sticking with the horror genre, Supermassive Games has made a name for itself with the likes of Until Dawn and The Quarry, but just imagine if the developer turned its hand to an interactive Scooby-Doo horror.

What Does A Scooby-Doo Horror Game Look Like?

Although some think we'll never return to the highs of Supermassive's wendigo wonder that is Until DawnThe Quarry took a pretty good stab at it. Either way, the developer has cornered the interactive horror drama market. Now, UI Artist Simon Brewer has imagined Scooby-Doo Last Bites: Death in the Parish. The concept art includes our titular dog looking on solemnly, while a spooky shack is looming in the background. 

It's easy to imagine QTEs and dialogue branches spanning out from a central story, and let's be honest, who wouldn't to stumble across the scene of Velma having been gutted in the back of the gang's van for sticking her nose where it doesn't belong? Namely, we just love the look of a new-gen Scoob and imagining what it would be like if he tried to solve the case of some grisly murders.

 

Could We See A Scooby-Doo Horror Game?

Supermassive isn't a million miles away from the Mystery Machine. In the run-up to The Quarry. Creative Director Will Byles told IGN, "Weirdly, when I very first wrote it, the characters in my head were kind of out of Scooby-Doo." While that doesn't mean he'd imagined Hackett's Quarry as the locale of a Scooby-Doo horror, it's an interesting thought. Add this to the fact James Gunn wants to make an R-rated Scooby-Doo movie, and we could be onto a winner.

Others loved the idea of Last Bites and shared their views. One fan wrote, "Omg yes but also no! You can’t let any of them die." Another one cheered, "To be fair, I WOULD play this. Given that I've enjoyed most of their games and that Scooby-Doo was a cornerstone of my childhood, this is one crossover that I can absolutely get behind." Sadly, it's all a well-crafted pipe dream for now. With Warner Bros. having given Scoob 2 the boot, it doesn't sound like the IP is a priority right now. Ruh-roh, hopefully, someone can see the money-making potential of this one.
