Backrooms Level -0.5: "The Vaporwave Realm"

Welcome to Backrooms Level -0.5, also known as "The Vaporwave Realm." It's like walking into a dream, with pastel hues, a strange but soothing soundtrack, and an atmosphere that's oddly, beautifully surreal.


Now, this level is something else! It's got this unmistakable vibe, like something straight out of 80's and 90's retrofuturism. The walls, floors, and ceilings? All splashed with geometric patterns, swirling in pastel pinks, blues, and purples. And you won't believe the details—palm tree silhouettes, statues, digital grids. They're everywhere!

Environment Conditions:

Here's where it gets even weirder: the air's just right, temperature-wise, with this strange but kind of pleasant artificial cherry scent. And the lighting—it's soft, like it's coming from hidden neon lights. Oh, and the music! It's this constant, soothing synth, like slowed 80's pop and smooth jazz combined. Weirdly calming, if you ask me.


  • From Level -0.4: You know, sometimes, when you're wandering aimlessly in Level -0.4, and you let your mind focus on memories of the past, you might suddenly find yourself here, in Level -0.5.


  • To Level -0.4: If you're looking to head back to Level -0.4, listen for the music to fade. That might just be your ticket out of here.


Vapor Beings: This is where it gets a bit...otherworldly. There are these beings here, made of a shifting, colorful mist. They're passive, mostly, just wandering around or moving in time with the music.

Object Interactions:

  • Statues: The statues, they're...cold. Not sure why, but they don't really do much else besides adding to the vibe of this place.

Known Strategies/Precautions:

  • Stay sharp! This level, with all its surreal beauty, can mess with your sense of direction.
  • The Vapor Beings are generally harmless, but I'd keep my distance if I were you.
  • And remember, if the music starts to fade, you might be near an exit.
