What are the backrooms?

Accidentally slipping or falling out of our reality by "no clipping", we find a liminal, hidden world known as the backrooms. You suddenly fall through a solid floor or slip through a wall. You find yourself in an endless maze of empty, abandoned, offices with a hideous yellow wallpaper. Wandering through the laberinth of these rooms all you find are old, stained, damp carpets and buzzing fluorescent lights.

You hear something walking across the damp carpet from just around the corner. It doesn't sound like the gait of a human, ... or an animal.

You have found the Lobby, also known as level 0 of the backrooms. If you escape level 0 without dying, or going insane, you will find an infinite set of other levels all different than the Lobby. Most levels are dangerous.

How do I connect to the Backrooms Novel Game?

Connect to the game directly from your browser using our secure web browser client. Our web client works on phones, tablets, and computers.

Many players of novel-like games use specialized "MUD" clients. These clients may not be as secure as our web browser client, but that may not be an issue if you are just playing a game. I always ask the question, "Would I feel comfortable shouting this conversation on a public bus or train?" If not, then use the most secure communication. In this case, that is our web client.

Having said that, any telnet client or MUD client can connect to the Backrooms Novel Game by connecting to host "" on port "4000". Two of the best specialized MUD clients are TinTin++ and Mudlet.

What tech does the Backrooms Novel Game use? is built on top of Evennia, which in turn is built on Python's Django. If you are looking to build your own MUD, read Evennia's extensive online documentation.
