About This Game


The Complex: Expedition takes place in 1988. You are a Magwave researcher sent into the Complex with your team to investigate a mysterious situation. When that expedition goes horribly wrong, you are left alone, dazed and lost, wandering the seemingly infinite maze of hallways of The Complex.

This is a psychological horror experience based on the "Backrooms" urban legend. View the world through a VHS camera and follow along a storyline involving an expedition into The Complex.

• Experience an immersive and atmospheric Backrooms experience.

• Explore the mysterious and unforgiving world of The Complex.

NOTE: This game is not connected with Kane Pixels' Backrooms nor the Backrooms Wiki/Fandom, though some parts may be inspired by them.
