Here In The Backrooms is an first person horror game based on Backrooms creepypasta and Kane Pixels Youtube video "The Backrooms (Found Footage)".

The rules are simple - just like in Slender The Eight Pages, you need to find the Pages. The only problem is... The monster that is hunting you.

THIS IS ONLY A PROTOTYPE! I don't know if I will ever finish this project. I had no ideas for it. I wanted to add randomly generated levels and more monsters here, but I don't want to be limited by The Backrooms world (I would have to show all the original levels from the Creepypasta). The game is HARD to finish. I tried to win, but I made the monster too strong. When you collect the Page, it knows that you collected it and it will go to the place where you collected it. It can hear when you are running from long distance and he Can see you too. If you hear him, you need to be quiet. Be on your guard at all times.

Eventually, Here In The Backrooms will turn into another game. I have an idea for a game placed in a world similar to Backrooms but with my own enemies and plot.

I decided to publish this prototype because it would be a pity that it would disappear. Even if I will turn it into a different game, the work I put into preparing it would be wasted.

too much for my low-end pc...can't even run from entity. but game is good ngl

Very difficult, but pretty good overall. 


gameplay: 10:11


I played your game in my backrooms horror games video! Yours is the 12th game in the video if you're interested in my opinions. Thanks for making it!

quite difficult since the hound hears literally everything. hopefully when more of the game comes out, the hound won't be so cunning with great hearing capabilities. the cracked lens film makes it really difficult to see and understand your surroundings, therefore adding to the difficulty in an unfair way. The backrooms hound is a total Sonic the Hedgehog that is faster than your running speed. Very, very annoying and unfair.

..... stars. make it easier when you work on it again, and I might increase it to ..... stars.

other users, feel free to chat with me about the backrooms and your ideas about the backrooms and make this our discussion page for the backrooms. I'd love to hear your theories about the truth about the backrooms!

Amazing, this game is cool. U should play it!


This game is so cool 4/5

This is a good backroom style game. You have to collect 5 pages to escape this place and the monster can hear if you pick up a page. The monster got me quite a few times but i managed to find all 5 pages. Great work making this game.

i played for 1 minute and had to quit because of creepy monster sounds


Hello! I played your game on stream the other day and made a vid! Was pretty fun, and hard. I managed to get 4/5 pages but never got to the mystical 5 lol. I loved the effects and the audio was on point, hope you make more games like this! Looking forward to the updates for this prototype!


Great, atmospheric and rich visual game. Congrats!

First iff i loved your version if the backrooms!

 I thought it was terrifying and i loved the camera filter and effects! Grabbing all the pages was a challenge and the combination of backrooms and slenderman gameplay was a great idea! The monster scared the crap out of me too! 

cant wait to see your future proproject's

make a multiplayer mode if you can please but if you dont want dont dued

I loved the whole aesthetic! It took me probably way too long to figure out the sound thing and I never beat it, but dang, it was good! (playthrough of this game starts at 11:37)

Hey, great scary monster that I found kind of funny. I didn't know reading could make some people/creatures so angry. Hooked On Creature Phonics might cheer him up, maybe he can't read.


I shitted myself cuz I saw the monster


The monster being able to hear you through walls even when doing something like picking up a page while you have no idea where it is makes this a purely luck based game which is not for me.

I will report a bug, first time I started it, when the player character stands up he clipped through the floor into the void. When ejecting and starting again it didn't happen, both times I didn't touch the controls.

If you can identify the cause of attracting the monster, it isn't luck based

Yes it is, since you yourself has no idea if it'll hear you or not.

but its realistic

If realism = boring and frustrating, I want none of it.


I HAVE NEVER SCREAMED SO LOUD IN MY LIFE WHILE PLAYING A SCARY GAME! I NEARLY THOUGHT IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO BEAT THIS GAME BUT I FINALLY DID IT! I made 2 videos on this game, in the first one on my channel I didn't beat it, but in this one I did. It took a lot out of me XD but it's a shame that this'll only be a prototype. This was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!


I'm working on a game based on this prototype so please, follow me on Itch.io if you want to know when this game will be available :)

Of course! I just followed you right now. Can't wait for it. :)


the game is similar to Slenderman.It is also necessary to collect notes.But I didn't get it.The monster hears you all the time.


игра похожая на слендермена.Тоже надо собирать записки.Но она мне не далась.Монстр постоянно тебя слышит.


You have to walk. Don't run. And make sure the monster Can't see you. Ohh also, when you collect the page, monster will run to you, so you need to quickly walk away. If monster see you, there is maybe 10% chance that you will loose him. He is very fast when he runs so you need to be very careful. 

Yess you're right. Kimleftarm(the utuber) followed that rule too.

A famous Utuber from South Korea has completed the game. Start watching from 7:04

Well the poop monster got me faster than I could collect his diary pages but good to finally find SOMETHING in the Backrooms

Nunca debi jugar este juego



Absolute great, actually enjoyed how difficult it was! 

I wanted to do some fan art after 25 minutes of finishing the standard version of the game! The standard version of the game can be resettable for me, I know the perfect way…

The game has a good setting and the sounds that the creature makes give you goosebumps, hopefully in the future there will be a story because the game has potential, good game!
Game Completed Here

The Entity is WAY to fast and also might wanna add an option menu so we can turn off the effect if we wanted, good game otherwise its like Slenderman but The Backrooms

Gave it a Lets Play, though I'd say the AI is a bit frustrating, the movement/shift camera jerk and visuals a bit extreme 

Here in my backrooms...

Very agressive entity
Show post...

Im scared. There should be a settings where you can turn off the glitch effect... its making my CP lag... also WHY IS HE SO FAST?!


 i love it :)


I like the idea of this game a lot 

And the game itself looks fine,

But my main problem is the monster. It  can be a very random with its walk patterns and can sometimes hear you from far across the map.

I also died many times just because the monster happened to spawn very close to where the player spawns. Overall I think game has potential but obviously needs a lot fixes

I Couldn’t Beat This Game… | Here In The Backrooms Gameplay


Nice game !

I'm a big fan of your other game, Mandela Invasion, so as a fan of the Backrooms I clearly had to play this as well! And, oh my God, it's scary! You really have a talent for creating a suspenseful and eerie atmosphere. I was on edge the entire time playing and I love (and hate bc of how scary it is) that you can hear the monster getting to you and the monster can hear you! Very suspenseful, I enjoyed it a lot! :) Keep up the good work


Dear God this game is horrifying!

Amazing work dude I really felt a sense of dread the whole time I was playing this.

I don't know what it is about the backrooms but I think I have a phobia lol.


Aaw man I can't play because it's lagging like mad


The sound mechanic in this game was amazing. I like how it would immediately come to the area when you grabbed a page. Great work! 


I loved how this looked and tried to record a playthrough for my channel, but after about an hour of playing I found that this game is pretty much unplayable. At least for me.

The moster is unescapable if it sees you, and it's speed is way too fast, making it impossible to outrun. I tried walking instead of running one round but it's ablility to detect the player through the walls killed me almost as soon as I started.

But I understand that this is a prototype, and not everything is perfect. I'm looking forwards to the final release, and am excited to see how it'll turn out in the future.


Hi! Here are some tips:

1. The monster hears you running far away, so it's better to walk than run.
2. The monster DOES NOT SEE through walls. He can see from a distance, but cannot see through walls.
3. When you collect the page, the monster runs to the place where the page was. First, make sure the monster is somewhere far away from you. Then collect the page and run a bit to the side and stand still. The monster will run to the place where the page was and will go its own way.

I saw videos on youtube where people used these tips and won.
 When I tested the game, I also failed at the beginning, but later I managed to win.
