It’s time to re-enter The Backrooms, the scary found footage series that I have been OBSESSING over lately.

    The idea that The Backrooms is “a video game” that you simply no-clip into as you’ve mentioned, I bet speedrunners would find a way to escape The Backrooms through glitches and “mechanics”.

    As a child I listened to a radio station called “when radio was” and Sunday nights they’d play old timey recordings of twilight. Little Girl Lost was played one night. It was horrifying for me and has stuck with me for a long time. No wonder this concept is so popular when it’s so terrifying in the first place

    Just a theory: Before the backrooms, Kane made a short film called “It’s Nicer Here”. It’s about a person over 5000 years old who’s created an entire virtual world that he can modify however he wants, inhabited by AI that near perfectly mirrors modern civilization. Notice how some objects in the backrooms seem to have a polygonal, old video game style look to them? Could it be that the backrooms is simply one of the many digital worlds the main character has created? Perhaps one of the “creative liberties” the main character took when making a near accurate reconstruction of his hometown?

    It’s so cool how it feels like a modernized version of Minotaur’s labyrinth with endless halls and an unknown monster. The video game idea actually makes a lot of sense and makes me even more excited for future episodes in Kane’s story

  5. Schrank Studios says:

    Little fan theory here: what if the back rooms only has this “glitch” on February 29th, but in this alternate universe, every year has a February 29th. The company that found the back rooms understands this, so they send people down there and makes sure they are there for this date.

    I like how enthusiastic he is about all the series he does. It almost doesn’t matter what he covers, so much as he himself likes it

  7. Erikh says:

    Fun fact : the part where Kane explored some weird shaped indoor garden is actually both in real life and the real backrooms wiki ! Level 188 and it’s some hotel in London. Don’t trust the windows.

  8. Gabreya Bradley says:

    So basically, the “The Backrooms” series is “The Matrix” meets “The Blair Witch Project”. And if that’s the case, that makes the series really CREEPY and COOL. Also, “The Matrix” and “The Blair Witch Project” both came out in 1999.

  9. ZabookaHD says:

    The general idea of the Backrooms is truly terrifying.

    It’s so cool to see Kane’s work get this much attention, well deserved as a person whos been following him for more than a year now. Thanks Matpat!
