What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe Backrooms: Escape Together can become a truly unique project that redefines horror experiences. In order to achieve that goal, we think it's necessary to have the player's feedback woven into the game's core.
Early access is an opportunity for anyone who buys it now to shape the game's future while being treated with frequent large updates.
Our philosophy is instead of spending years designing levels and polishing them, it makes a lot more sense to release the levels incrementally, letting the community vote on what comes next.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our plan is to be in early access for around a year. But as with all things, it will come out when we feel like we have achieved our goal of providing the true Backrooms experience.”

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

You will be the main driver of this game. We will be actively listening and polling our Discord members for planning future updates.
That being said, we do have a few goals we would like to highlight.

Short Term Goals (~1 Month)

  • Add 1v4 mode where Bacteria is playable
  • Add 2-3 new levels (Vote on our Discord to choose the levels!)
  • Polish Animations

Long Term Goals (~3-6 Months)

  • Have 20-30 polished high-quality levels
  • Create a nonlinear web of levels where each level leads to 3-5 other levels, providing multiple endings
  • Expand multiplayer to an open-world concept, allowing the chance to come across other players while traversing levels.

Above all, the main goal will be to provide the true Backrooms experience. We want players to get lost in the levels and be truly immersed.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the Early Acess is a fully playable, fun, and (mostly) bug-free game. The early access represents countless hours of our hard work and we would only ship a game that we would be eager to play ourselves and with friends. That being said, there will be some lacking features, most notably levels. Though we plan to deliver polished new levels multiple times per month.

As of release, we have two levels currently (Levels 0 and 1) You can either play single-player or multiplayer. Level 0's current goal is to complete a set of objectives in order to escape. Objectives include recording entities and landmarks, gathering data on the backrooms, and collecting VHS tapes for evidence. See the About This section for some more details on what to expect in Level 0.”

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

“With our commitment to constantly improving the game, we plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

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

“Community feedback will be paramount to our early access journey. We intend to listen very closely to players on social media. Mainly our Steam page and Discord server!”

About This Game

As a team of researchers, you are sent into the Backrooms to gather more info on the liminal labyrinth. However, after completing your research duties, an elevator malfunction sends you plummeting into the heart of the most dangerous levels, leaving you with the only objective of escape and survival.

Currently, Levels 0 and 1 are the only playable levels. Level 0 being an introduction, your team is tasked with various research objectives. These can include recording entities and landmarks, gathering data on the backrooms, and collecting VHS tapes for evidence.

Built in Unreal Engine 5, Backrooms: Escape Together will be the first to truly capture the essence of the Backrooms. Levels will be procedurally generated, dynamically lit with stunning quality, and packed with detail. Levels will be added constantly through early access as we grow the game into the true Backrooms experience.

Horrifying Imersion

Next-gen graphics, procedurally generated levels, handcrafted sound, and gameplay built to immerse the player will make you feel as if you are really a lost wander, stuck in the Backrooms.

Multiplayer

  • Enter the Backrooms alone or team up with 5 others for a total of 6 player co-op.
  • Proximity voice chat.
  • Players can join and host lobbies.
  • Each player must find an escape or die trying.
  • A unique 1v4 mode will also be added after launch (Not currently in the game) allowing players to hunt their friends as the Bacteria.

Procedual Generation

Using advanced algorithms, every level is procedurally generated and completely random. Each level will also harbor multiple unique random events that will add caveats to each play-through. Every experience will be different offering endless replayability.
