Level 888 is the 889th level of the Backrooms. It is a massive, frigid terrain consisting of a barren forest surrounded by hillsides. This level houses several unique entities that collectively form an ecological system which, while self-sufficient, is particularly effective at entrapping humans via manipulation of the psyche. There is no known way to mitigate any of the effects instigated by these entities.


The most explored and understood area of Level 888 is its wooded landscape. It is entirely comprised of deciduous trees and shrubbery which are either dead or dying. Temperatures here have been measured as low as -34°C (-29.2°F) and as high as -5°C (23°F). The day/night cycle is evenly divided within a 40 hour period, and seasonal changes are negligible to non-existent. Though it resembles snow, the white powder covering the ground is a form of diatomaceous earth with concentrations of crystalline silica considered toxic to humans. In fine enough consistencies, this dust can form a cloud that hangs in the air when disturbed. Visibility is limited by an ever-present fog made up of said powder as well as sulfuric acid, water, and trace amounts of unknown compounds. It is recommended to wear protective clothing and utilize the best respiratory apparatus available while inside this level.

Exploration teams that crossed the edge of the forest have deduced that the area has a diameter of roughly 1400 km (~850 mi). Beyond that lies a series of rolling hills and plains, the overall size of which remains undetermined. Larger deposits of faux snow and harsh winds make traversal here especially perilous. Wanderers who ventured into this region have either perished from exposure or exited the level before finding any alterations in topography or notable landmarks. For reasons unknown, none of the human remains discovered at Level 888 have displayed signs of the Wretched Cycle in any stage.

Entrances And Exits


There is a chance to no-clip into Level 888 while experiencing emotional distress within the following levels:3


Only two methods of exiting Level 888 have been confirmed:

  • Defeating and subsequently terminating a Broodweaver or Shroudstalker that has targeted you as prey can cause you to no-clip into Level 63. While it is not guaranteed, the odds are significantly bolstered by consuming its flesh within five hours of its passing.
  • Interacting with an Outer Being will eventually result in being warped elsewhere. This exceedingly rare occurrence has so far resulted in being teleported to either Level 11 or Level 974.
