Backrooms Level -19: "Maelstrom of Mirrors"

Backrooms Level -19, dubbed "Maelstrom of Mirrors", is an overwhelming environment of endless reflective surfaces, creating a disorienting and paradoxical realm of infinite reflections.


Level -19 is entirely composed of mirror-like surfaces, forming a dizzying maze of reflections and refractions. The environment is structured like a labyrinth, with corridors and rooms made entirely from mirror walls, floors, and ceilings. The reflections are not just mere duplicates; they seem to depict different scenarios and times, creating a paradoxical and surreal atmosphere.

Environment Conditions:

The air is cool and still, with a slightly metallic scent. The temperature remains constant, comparable to a comfortable room temperature. The only light comes from an indeterminable source, reflecting and refracting off the myriad mirror surfaces, creating a bewildering array of light and shadow.


  • From Level -20: During a significant environmental shift in Level -20, an individual might suddenly find themselves within the Maelstrom of Mirrors.


  • To Level -18: Certain mirrors, when gazed into for a prolonged period, might morph into a portal, leading to Level -18.


Reflectors: Reflectors are entities that roam Level -19, perfectly mirroring their surroundings. They are indistinguishable from the environment, only noticeable when they move. Their intentions and behaviors remain unknown.

Object Interactions:

  • Mirrors: The mirrors making up this level are the main objects of interaction. They might reflect different scenes, times, and even realities. Some mirrors can become portals to other levels when gazed upon for extended periods.

Known Strategies/Precautions:

  • Wanderers should keep a keen eye on their reflections. Any unusual change might indicate the presence of a Reflector.
  • Navigation can be challenging due to the reflective nature of the environment. Using a non-reflective object to mark progress can be beneficial.
  • One should be cautious about what their reflections show in the mirrors. Not all reflections depict the current reality and can lead to confusion or false perceptions.
