Backrooms of reality
A downloadable game for Windows
"If you're not careful and you noclip out of reality in the wrong areas, you'll end up in the Backrooms, where it's nothing but the stink of old moist carpet, the madness of mono-yellow, the endless background noise of fluorescent lights at maximum hum-buzz, and approximately six hundred million square miles of randomly segmented empty rooms.
God save you if you hear something wandering around nearby, because it sure as hell has heard you"

nice backrooms game! It's simple but for a liner spook like this that's perfect in my opinion!
cought by the monster 😂
Please make more levels, I had so much fun! Great Job!
I LOST MY MIND! (watch this before playing)
I donated $250 because this game was so good.
Hey! I played your game in my recent backrooms horror games video. Yours is the first game played if you're interested in checking out my opinions on it. Thanks for making it!
If you need someone to do monstruous voice work, I can help with that.
Good Job dev. Loved the vibe. A nice version of the backrooms XP
I loved it <3
i still cant excape :((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((
Loved this version of the backrooms! Only thing is I wish the monster was a little scarier. But all in all a great game! Definitely sent chills up my spine with the eerie atmosphere!
Here is my playthrough:
I honestly never really got the Backrooms appeal, but decided to give this game a try. Honestly? I was ready to complain about it, but it's not really THAT bad.
It's really short but intuitive. There are clues as to how to complete it and the ending "puzzle" is really easy. But it's atmospheric. Not to the extent of really scaring you with its aura alone, but you can get a jumpscare or two if you REALLY want to explore the game. The constant noise (or almost lack of it) and the level itself are really charming, but it lacks replayability once ou complete it for the first time. Honestly? If the "scary entity" were to be more ruthless and more present, it would already help this game out a lot. Also, if the clues were better hidden, it would be even better. But honestly, for a quick/initial playthrough? It's quite alright, but you'll probably just try it once more to finish faster.
Now, i don't care about graphics, at all, but i ran this game on an i3 ASUS Laptop, with integrated graphics and 4gb RAM. On the lowest settings? It runs really well, so that is already a big thumbs up from me. Some graphic glitches here and there, but a smooth play none the less.
Overall? Try it once. Complete it. You'll feel compelled to complain about how short it is and how it isn't scary, but you'll end up seeing that this game has a lot of potential.
PS: To the Dev, don't bother with new levels. Perfect this one. Make it slightly harder, and make the final puzzle slightly harder. That alone will make this game appeal to a wider audience.
I played the Backrooms for the first time! Good game!!
there's no , controller support for xbox. all i can set is jump and crouch
The game was fun but some bugs came at the end , either way the game has potential and can't wait to see more.
Ghost man spooky
(2nd game I play)
Buenardo me gusto el juego
Me hubiese gustado que fuese un poco mas largo pero bueno :(
how do you open game, on what mediem. Like when i try to open it, it brings up this thing asking what to open it on and I have no clue what to open
you have to extract the files
Its a Really Good Game, Jumpscares got me Good too
That was fun but I want to see more levels and more enemies. :) 4/5
Good game! Enjoyed the atmosphere and some of the jumpscares made me shit myself big time. Thanks for making it!
The setting and atmosphere of the game made it more challenging. I really enjoyed the game
I really liked the visuals which looked very realistic and the jittering animation. Short yet enjoyable game.
good game! made me jump when i first ran into "it". definitely the best backrooms game i've played yet
This was an enjoyable game of the backrooms. I had a fun time playing it!
Cons: It doesn't have much replayability since the code is the same when you replay it. The monster (person?) chasing the player didn't show up very much when I played it so there was not really much threat as I was playing it.
Pros: The controls felt nice and responsive. I like the voices leading the player to the exit and it was more than just ambiance to distract the player. The level design was very "Backrooms"-esque and made me get lost a couple of times lol.
don't jump in the hole....
Not bad for such a short horror game. The atmosphere is quite good. You can watch my playthrough here:
