About the Story

While there are many unfortunate people who fall into the Backrooms, their artifacts rarely return to the real world. Most of the time these artifacts are videos.

But today you have found a journal.

A rare find indeed.

Except the writer seems less concerned with their own lostness and more with finding their friend.

Who were they? Did they succeed? Did they escape?

Where are they now?

You have no way of answering these questions.

All you can do is read what remains.

Short illustrated dreamlike game, April 6, 2024
by MathBrush
Related reviews: less than 15 minutes

This was a nice game to end the comp on. Itís a relatively brief and poetic Twine game that uses sound (which I believe comes from the seed being used) as well as line drawings to convey a story.

The idea is that youíve found a journal that talks about someone missing someone else, and the journey itís taken them on. I canít tell if itís metaphorical or literal, but either way itís interesting.

The game is very short, but it serves its purpose well.

When the void stares back with words., March 31, 2024

Found Journal is an atmospheric kinetic entry, where you get to go through a page (or more?) of a journal left behind by some lost soul. Using as a base a weirdcore/distorted track, the short entry deals with feelings of loss (of self? relationship? someone?) and ambiguity. Illustrations have also been included within the pages, to accentuate the feelings of loneliness and helplessness.

It made me feel very uneasy (in a good way) by the time I reached the final page, but still hopeful the writer might have found a happy ending (though I very much doubt it). It was a vibe!
