Lost in the Backrooms
A downloadable game for Windows
Quick Note: I appreciate all the feedback I got from people about this game and things that can be improved. Unfortunately it is impossible for me to ever work on this game again because the project got corrupted (meaning most of the data is actually gone) in a stupid backup accident.
What is this about?
You have somehow managed to clip into the Backrooms, an endless labyrinth of empty and similar looking rooms designed to lure you deeper into this mysterious space.
This game is best played with headphones and in a dark room (you know, the usual horror game environment).
There is no saving in this game! If you decide to end the game midway you'll have to start over. It only takes about 15-20 minutes to complete it though.
WASD to walk around.
Move the mouse to look around.
Left Mouse Button to interact.
What I want you to know:
This game was created for the Haunted PS1 Summer-Spooks Gamejam in a matter of 30 days. There are a lot of other awesome entries, so please go check them out here: https://itch.io/jam/the-haunted-ps1-summer-spooks/entries
This game is inspired by a weird internet story by the name of "The Backrooms". There is a whole wiki containing lots of information about this story and it's also where I got some of my inspiration from.
I want to thank Greg Elperin and Jeff Kekenj (@AskeGuitar92) for helping me find ideas for this project and writing the story.

My favorite backrooms game!
I really enjoyed this. It was really creepy the whole time and the jump scare at the end was well done
Finally, someone made a game not about running from monsters in backrooms. I think it will be my favorite in backrooms games.
Sinceramente me gustan este tipo de juegos
no hay ninguna criatura acechandonos? solo es busqueda?
my theory is that we are the creature and we dont realise it. anyways i escaped
HOLY CRAP THAT JUMPSCARE GOT ME GOOD 10/10
make a endless version with actual random generation
I fell through the map
What are the sounds you used?
Do the screams in the game mean one of those beings are nearby?
I really enjoyed the game from the beginning to the end and I have to admit that I was scared shitless most of the time because the atmosphere in the game is amazing
se puede jugar online??
This is my favorite version of the backrooms!the entire game style is so unique and the atmosphere was frightening, the tapes only added to the uncertainty and uneasy feeling I got while delving deeper into the backrooms. The sound design is top-notch and the gameplay is great and the big Scare at the end was very much earned! In short I love the game and I love your version of the backrooms!
Not gonna be able to shit alone for a month thanks to this game. Great work dude!
Enjoyed your Backrooms game, felt like an exploratory journey besides the standard maze. I really like the design of the labyrinth, very artistic and unpredictable, felt abandoned and forgotten by time :)
Man this game is so good and so scary in the same time, i played with my friends on discord and was really cool. Nice work with this game 100/10.
It was actually the best horror game I've ever played.well done !
i almost fell off my damn chair!
the slow burn really made the jumpscare more effective
This was an awesome game,and I love the end.
Good Job !!!
PS : It's scary as hell :]
Really love the original take on the Backrooms idea, very well done
Can't wait for more from you
wow that made me shit
i love it :)
Jesus fuck the ending
While this game may not stick to the original backrooms formula, it sure as hell knows how to make it better
If you like the backrooms, definitely give this game a try
Cool game :)
It's pity that the project of the game is lost :(
