What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I wanted to get the game into the hands of players halfway through development in order to allow the community to guide the further creation of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I'm estimating around 3-6 months.”

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

“I am planning on adding many more levels and game modes throughout Early Access. My goal for the full version is to create an immersive game that you can spend hundreds of hours in with your friends and never get bored.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the game includes a singleplayer option with a timer for speedrunning, some story elements, and a more immersive experience due to being alone in an endless system of rooms.

Multiplayer includes a coop mode where you can traverse through the levels in various difficulties with proximity chat.”

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

“It will likely be more expensive to continue to add more content.”

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

“The community is guiding the entire development of the game. I've implemented many suggestions from my Discord server and YouTube comments and close to the entirety of my videos are revolving around adding suggestions from the community.”

About This Game

Explore the seemingly infinite expanse of eerily familiar levels in the backrooms based on the popular creepypasta lore. Each level features different ways to escape with danger along the way.

Realistic graphics, minimal user interfaces, and dreary ambience will ensure an immersive experience.

Explore the backrooms with a team of up to 4 players. Be warned, as teammates may no-clip into other areas of the map and every member of your team must find the exit alive to escape. No wanderer left behind.

Traverse though 20+ unique levels based on backrooms lore with regular content updates adding more. Each level features a different way to escape with various danger along the way.

Check every corner so you won't be caught off guard by one of 12 hostile entities in the backrooms, each with their own mechanics you'll need to quickly learn if you want to survive.

Communicate with your teammates with proximity voice chat. Be sure to not wander far away from your team, as you can easily get lost in the confusing expanse of the backrooms. Entities can also hear you, so stay quiet whenever you're near any danger.
