Inspired by the popular internet "creepypasta" The Backrooms, The Backrooms: Survival is a horror game with roguelike elements. Players find themselves in seemingly never-ending narrow and tight corridors known as the backrooms, where they will need to explore carefully in an attempt to find a way out. You will need to try and remain sane while seeking out food and drink, and avoiding any possible hostilities lurking around the corners..,

Explore through The Backrooms and ascend to higher levels, each level home to different items, objects, events, and company...


  • Randomly generated levels - The Backrooms are randomly generated each new playthrough to ensure a fresh experience each time and no memorizing the layouts. Different themes/level types with different entities and items.
  • Survival Elements - You will need to scavenge the backrooms for any food and water you can find to survive, including drinking from leaks in the ceiling and cannibalizing the already dead
  • Leaderboards - global leaderboard to see who can make it to the highest, deepest levels of The Backrooms...
  • Choose your player - Before you enter The Backrooms, you'll have to either pick a random player or create your own, choosing your name, avatar, etc as well as choose from a list of real-world professions which each offer unique bonuses
  • Retro style graphics - Graphic art style inspired by gaming consoles in the 1990s
  • Mantain your sanity - It is easy to lose your mind in the backrooms. You'll have to try and maintain your sanity before you begin hearing and seeing things that may or may not be there...
  • Inventory Management - You'll find all kinds of things down in The Backrooms... from edible substances to useful tools to not so useful junk. You'll have to manage your few inventory slots and prioritize what you think you may need the most
  • Permadeath - Death in The Backrooms, just like in our reality, is permanent. With only one quicksave save slot that auto-deletes upon death, you better be careful because in The Backrooms death could lie around any corner.
  • Orbirtruary System - All your unsuccessful attempts to escape the Backrooms which result in death will be recorded in game via the "Orbirtruary System". Similar to a leaderboard/high score system, this records information that run through The Backrooms such as your player's name, age, profession, death cause, etc
