If you noclip out of reality in the wrong areas, you'll end up in the Backrooms. The old moist carpet, the mono-yellow rooms and the hum-buzz of the fluorescent lights will be your only comfort in the endless purgatory you have found yourself in. Don't bother crying out for help. Nobody is left.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I want to make this game as big and beautiful as possible, but that's going to take time. Early access will allow people to be able to get their hands on it and play it as it's being developed. Each update will be like an event where new levels are released and the game experience is polished and refined.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I plan for this game to remain in Early Access for about 2-3 years, as I regularly update the project with new levels and content.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“I plan to achieve a functional survival horror game set in the world of 'The Backrooms'.
I'm planning three complete level progression paths; positive levels, negative levels and letter levels.
I plan for some levels to include sub-levels.
I'm planning for there to be at least 20 different levels to explore and progress through.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is in Alpha.
Currently there are 5 maps for Level 0, a map for Level 0.2 (Remodeled Mess) and a map for Level A (The Poolrooms).
You are able to walk around the 'infinite' level, play the game in VR, use a torch and run (with a functional stamina feature).
Currently the game lacks entities, a detailed options screen and the general quality of life improvements that will come with future releases.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will not change when the game leaves Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Community feedback is greatly appreciated. Bug reports are greatly appreciated.”

About This Game

This game can be played with or without a VR headset!

If you're not careful and you noclip out of reality in the wrong areas, you'll end up in the Backrooms. The old moist carpet, the mono-yellow rooms and the hum-buzz of the fluorescent lights will be your only comfort in the endless purgatory you have found yourself in. Don't bother crying out for help. Nobody is coming. Nobody is left.

Level 0 (The Lobby)
Level 0 is the first level of the Backrooms.
Level 0 is a non-linear space, resembling the backrooms of a retail outlet. It is a collection of infinite randomly segmented rooms, hallways, and staircases. The wallpaper is a mono-yellow, the carpet is damp, and the ceiling is decorated with office lights. Some walls have electrical outlets, security cameras, or mold growing on them.
The installed lighting flickers inconsistently and hums at a constant frequency.
While most areas of Level 0 are lit with a mono-yellow light, some areas are in total darkness. Other areas have dimmer than usual lights and some areas even have colorful lighting.

The Backrooms: Mass Extinction is a game created by Mitchell Hepburn using Unreal Engine 4. It is currently in early access and will receive updates and new content as the game develops. In the current build, you can:
• Explore a massive Level 0, a maze of non-Euclidean rooms stretching infinitely in all directions.
• Explore Level 0.2, a sub-level called 'Remodeled Mess'.
• Explore Level A, the Poolrooms!
• Use vending machines to avoid dying of hunger or thirst.
• Use your trusty torch to light areas shrouded in darkness.
• Search for the Manila room, which can be found behind a wall you can noclip through.
• Discover books documenting the levels.
• Play on Desktop or VR; seamlessly switch between regular and VR play modes!
• Discover books documenting the levels.

Upcoming build will include:
• Entities (Partygoers and Smilers)
• Level Fun =)
• Level 0.1 sub-level
