How to Save Max in The Quarry
If you want to save Max, there are a few things you have to do and some extra things you can do as a safeguard. Essentially, Max is one of the easiest to keep alive.
You need to have some of the others alive and need to make one decision near the end of the game to get out. At the very start of the game, you can choose to help Max or leave him. This has little bearing on the story, though it will affect Max and Laura's relationship.
As Abi, break open the cabin at the start to make it easier for others to get away later. As Laura later in the cell, choose to take the syringe from upstairs and hide it in the brick in her cell. Use it on Travis to avoid a violent confrontation.
This will keep Laura alive later in the game, to stop the curse. You can choose to kill Chris in the Hackett house, bringing Max back. If you do, don't swim in the water. It can result in you getting killed by Caleb before Dylan and Kaitlyn get to the junkyard.
If you're finally playing through the game for yourself and recognise them, this is what you should know about The Quarry voice actors.

The actors are largely A-list Hollywood celebrities, so knowing exactly who they are might very well change you perception of the game. Give that page a look.
