it was scary
not video games
What is it with normalfags and the gentrification of shit that originated off 4chanThe backrooms devolved into another post 3000 scp webpage. The vaporeon thread made almost everyone a pokephile. Fucking wojakposting, don't even get me started.
This is scarier
I only like Kane Pixel's version.
An empty room is not scary unless you have extreme adhd.
>>631276473they want to feel cool and edgy without actually doing anything
>>631275846no it's not it's just a bionicle
>>631275846>>631276618I fucking hate this shit so much>le ebil megacorp doing experiments and then uh oh big spookerino monster!!!!it was fine when resident evil did it, now it's annoying because it's fucking everywhere
>>631275846Would actually work as horror if it didn't scream like a retard.
>>631276853Is it? I don't remember the last time I saw a "Science gone terrible wrong" horror story that isn't RE.
Backrooms was never supposed to be fucking "scary". It was supposed to be unnerving, mysterious and melancholic. Fucking zoomers can't into subtle emotions like that so they have to throw in a bunch of super special scp ocs into the mix for their youtube clickbait.
>>631277082>unverving>lol noclip hahaha so randomNo just no. It was faggot shit then and it's faggot shit now.
>>631275846>>631276618>>631276853>>631277006The true monster is man's hubris.
>>631275846Scary is knowing Zoomers are out there. Just ready to fucking annoy me at any time.
>>631277139saying he "Teleported into the Backrooms" would just be boring. The No clipping part makes it stand out. this writing 101 anon. don't just write basic shit. make it stand out.
Backrooms is basically a really bad SCP which is pretty sad since SCP's become really bad. You can't tell me this isn't the lowest effort bullshit you've ever seen.
For m it's Urbanspook
>>631277107what is the name of kids even younger than "zoomers"? The current 8-12 year olds.
>>631276473>The vaporeon thread made almost everyone a pokephile.No, it didn't. They will still mass report pokemon porn in all mainstream sites. They just like reposting the copypasta under sfw vaporeons.
>>631275846it’s comfy honestly
>>631277456>that second imagehow fucking low can they go? Jesus wept and this is what they're making a movie about
>>631277554Those are still zoomers. Gen alpha's older members are like 6 years old. Zoomer is like 7 to 27.
>>631277456>The backrooms, an uninhabited place, should be populated by monsters and creaturesThe worse thing is you can tell that a kid made that because "It's like a normal person but with no face" and calling it a "faceling" without understanding what "ling" even means.
>>631278074I mean one of them is a cute asian girl, Oh no how scary.
>>631277320It's still fucking retarded. "Noclip out of reality"? What the fuck is that even supposed to mean? What, you concentrate really hard and picture yourself typing "noclip 1" in your head and suddenly you can noclip through the fucking world into a hidden area? Can I do that for godmode 1 so monsters in the backrooms can't hurt me?
>>6312764734chan is the cool and edgy kid in school while everyone else is just trying to copy the cool and edgy kid not knowing what makes him cool and edgy. So what you end up getting is something cringe. Like seriously, zoomies are always ironic and scared to commit to something but the few times they do commit and show genuine emotion and thought towards something it is always the most bottom of the barrel garbage there is.
Been writing some monster novel because I’m autistic and I use the backrooms as sorta a level space between the underworld and humanityThanks and have a great day
>>631278225>I mean one of them is a cute asian girl, Oh no how scary.That's another issue. Most of the "monsters" zoomies love is mascot horror or just some stupid jeff the killer look a like so they can become friends with the monsters.
>>631277456I want to fuck the faceling on the left.
>>631278327Noclip as in get stuck between collisions and get pushed out of bounds, you fucking moron.
>>631278327It was meant to describe how you can accidently fall out of reality because the bounds of reality isn't as strong as we think it is. Autist who are looking to expand backrooms took this to think that means there are literal game mechanics involved.
>>631278463>Noclip >get stuckWhat the fuck do you even think 'NO CLIP' means??
>>631278327This is really dense, try to open your mind a little bit. The way he stated it is an interesting thought for your mind to chew on as you read. Imagine if you inexplicably crossed out of the room you are in into an unknown space that you know can't possibly really be there. There is some inherent fear and disorientation, no?
>>631278463Oh yeah, that wonky collision system. What the fuck was God thinking when he decided to use the Havok physics engine for Earth?Using video game terms for this shit is just dumb and makes it impossible to take seriously.
>>631277082btw a goon made this
>>631279001>take seriously >my fun 30 second internet story that I come across as i scroll mindlessly for hours and hoursWhat is your problem man
>>631278927>no?every person I know that ends their sentence like this are always some massive pseudo intellectual faggot
>>631279195That's impossible because I wrote it.
Does /v/ like Monument Mythos?
So we all agree that A-Sync was bullshitting when they said that guy tripped and brained himself on a rock, right?
>>631278927>No?No. An interesting thought to chew would be a more abstract yet relatable transition from the normal world to the backrooms, such as the moment you fall asleep and start having a vivid dream, where at some point reality just seems to cease to exist and the dream begins.
>>631279649Too schizo for me desuAlso the fight in early 90s 3D was fucking terrible
>>631279683Why did they kill him anyways?And at what point do they realise this Backrooms experiment was a massive mistake? Countless people are dead by this point.
>>631278327You're on a videogame board and you don't know what that means?
>>631276473my favorite part is when that happen and then normies call someone else a newfag for posting it, like how Homestuck was a 4chan comic before tumblr gentrified it and now people will call you a tumblroid for posting Homestuck shit
>>631279954>Company tears open a portal into another dimension>This has led to a notable increase in people disappearing>Company is likely aware of this, having found bodies in the backrooms>Have people explore, one of them just straight up disappears for a few months>Company wants to market the area as a living/storage space>Get government representative to check it out>Lost guy comes back at that exact moment, likely leading to many questions from the government>Company had already faked his death>Probably knocked him out and chucked him in the backrooms>He survives, gets into a confrontation with Marvin and that other guy, and escapes back into our world>Escapes A-Sync>Is liable to tell everyone what's going on>Even if the public doesn't believe him, the government willA-Sync is trying to do internal damage control while they figure out how to get to this guy before he gets to a news station or the Department of Energy. A-Sync still thinks they can control the backrooms because they've fallen prey to sunk cost and hubris, not realizing the backrooms is a force that cannot be controlled.
>>631280049Tbf, Posting Homestuck at all should have you mocked by everyone regardless of time spent on 4chan
Play Animapolis and The Complex
>>631275846And then dumbass children and teenagers made a million iterations of it seemingly for the sole purpose of creating blueprints for shitty Slender: the Eight Pages clones.
>>631280720Animoiapolis was a bit disappointing. The only segment with a losing condition was reused from the demo and the new spaces felt lackluster compared to what we've seen in the demo. I'm aware that it's a game about liminal spaces, but I feel as if it pushed itself far too firmly into the 'there's absolutely fucking nothing here' territory where it seems more like you're wandering through unfinished maps more than derelict areas. The movie theater was the stand out new area.
>>631280720You just reminded me. I recently played a Backrooms game called Backrooms Lost Tape or something It had some good spooky levels but something that really pissed me off for some reason was how they randomly tried to fit it into the SCP universe. What the hell was wrong with A-Sync? or some random made up company. why relate it to fucking SCP?
>>631280720I never understood how people found this unsettling. That looks like a primo pool. Is it a poor people thing to be afraid of this,
>>631281359Aniamapolis is mostly pretty comfy. some parts are rather spooky like the endless shower rooms part or the mall section with the mannequins that move. But it's mostly a pretty chill game. it's kind of relaxing while also being sort of spooky.
>>631281359Young people raised in densely populated areas think it is unnerving to see a location devoid of people. Mostly because they have never seen an empty space in their lives.
>>631277264>flesh pit hasn't been replicated and driven into the ground because it requires a modicum of creativity and effortvery based
>>631277264Remineder: OLED screens are organic.
>>631276853literally thiscube 1 did it infinitely better than this zoomerslop
>>631275846Ok... please tell I'm not crazy for thinking a regular person could probably beat that thing in a fight, it basically just a walking tripod
>>631280720Chapter 1 was such a disappointment over the demoConsidering they reused the demo and that was arguably the only compelling part of the game>2 empty ass zoomer-rooms maze which in concept is what the game is, but in practice feels empty and boring af>golf section is just an infinity generated mini-golf level, loses all novelty after like 10 rounds>the theater portion was also solid, the environments were much more interesting than the empty zoomer room bits with that moving mannequin that kinda creeped me out.Anemoiapolis is just suffering from the limitations of this "genre", a bunch of empty shit with no novelty to it outside of the """""""""""""""""""""""""""""liminal"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""aspect. The only way to make it compelling is to do the SCP bullshit and adding shitty """"""""lore"""""""" that never actually adds to the concept because its all been shittly executed
>>631282628MaybeBut still, shit'd be scary to see in real life, so the dude didnt do anything despite having a clear shot right at the end, which is why he died whe he got attacked in the back
>>631282837Here's how you add to backrooms without adding the cingy garbage to it. Just make the liminal space level a in-between or hub level select world for a more surreal game where said levels can actually be populated and not feel so empty.
Some video showed up on my recommended feed recently on how the backrooms is "ruined".It featured the most insufferable zoomer who sounded like he was sniffing his own farts and I had to switch it off after a couple of minutes.Either way, it's a retarded concept for retards afraid of empty rooms.
>>631283424That's the issue, it shouldn't be full on horror.
>>631283424It's "scary" for people who are awkward but oversocialized. It looks like somewhere you're not supposed to be so they feel like a teacher or manager is going to jump out and say "hey, what do you think you're doing here?!"
>>631282179"organic" as in the compound that makes it work contains hydrocarbon bonds, not "organic" as in "comes from a living creature"
>>631278327Yeah, ikr. Like, what exactly should I do to be able to "noclip" out of this world? Wtf
>>631278451Unfortunately a blowjob is out of question.
>>631275846>be honest, it was scary
>>631278717>it was meant to describe how you can accidently fall out of reality because the bounds of reality isn't as strong as we think it isIn hindsight, that's actually rather silly. Imagine just being able to run into a wall and colliding so hard you actually "transcend" this reality because its "bounds" are just a tiny bit weak in that specific point. That just comes off as oddly cartoonish to me.
>>631279954You have to remember the a-sync stuff happens like 5 years before the original video and that Peter reappeared the same day the feds came to investigate, for them it's still salvageable as long as they follow proper procedure. There's money to be made in grants and eventually selling the technology.It's a lot like Jurassic Park in a way. It reminds me of the scene where they try to pass off a raptor claw slicing a worker as some kind of backhoe incident.
>>631281014That's why I always roll my eyes at people who think more games should be created around the concept of liminal spaces. What would be so fun (or scary) about wandering an empty-ass mall or office building with nothing to do?
>>631283312Anemoiapolos tried to put its hand in both pies, it has that liminal hubworld, but also utterly boring ass empty liminal worlds as "levels". Again, the demo is the best part because it offers the most surreal imagery with an actual (albeit half-assed) supernatural threat) which puts you on edge
>>631281014it could've used some more puzzlesjust because it's supposed to be these liminal spaces doesn't mean they have to be completely devoid of any interactable items (other than tickets)
>>631283792This... actually nails it down pretty well.
>>631285763The way I see it, liminal spaces would be great for some kind of VR zen thing. Like you're in this comfy empty area that should be highly populated, and you're allowed to just chill and live in the moment for a while. A lot of liminal spaces look like places that, as the kids would say, would be neat to just vibe in.
A proper liminal space is a space with the point of origin and point of destination removed. And good liminal space horror plays on this. It's okay to have a monster or a spook of some kind within a liminal space. But the scariest thing about encountering a spook within a liminal space is the lack of anywhere to actually run to. It's derivative of the "endless chase" type of nightmare. Where a figure is chasing you. If you don't have the power to fight whatever is chasing you the solution is obvious. Run to somewhere. To a barrier you can put in its way. To another person who can assist you. If some thug starts chasing you in a dark alley what do you do? Simple. You run out of the alley. But what if you turn back the way you came and the busy street you turned off of is no longer there, and instead you find yourself in another alley, that leads into another alley. Even if the alley lead to a dead-end you would at least be able to put your back to the wall and strike in the direction of the assailant so even a dead end provides a potential resolution. >>631285504>>631285504>It's a lot like Jurassic ParkIt actually seems like it's more inspired by "From Beyond" (Lovecraft) which deals with the theme of scientifically unlocking a window into a previously unknown realm of existence and the ensuing consequences thereof and the growing obsession of the scientist(s) responsible.
>>631282628chimpanzees look weak but they'd tear you to piecesit's also probably taller than you
>>631276473because 4chan is insanely populated and well known by now, so the pervasive memes end up getting elsewhere, just late after it's already tired and not funny
>>631283792And yet nobody found this idiotic concept "scary" until your retarded generation.If you're scared of empty rooms then you're all fucked.
I like the backrooms because it reminds me of gta out of bounds glitches and i find the uncanny aesthetic of empty unused game maps visually interesting, though to be honest adding a youtube clickbait monster is pretty cringe but i guess that's easiest way of making it scary. The way some of you sperg autistically about this topic is really dissapointinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCXoZgYZt6whttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLH2w3HnfnA
>>631287159>The way some of you sperg autistically about this topic is really dissapointingWe just like making fun of zoomers and we hate how smug they are all the time.
>>631282628It's an abstract concept without any real defined form.
>>631287464looks pretty well defined to me, i'd kick it's ass.
>>631278334>4chan is the cool and edgy kidlmao
liminal spaces are only scary for kids that have never been away from a phone or tablet longer than 5 minutes. the idea of an area without stimulation is foreign to their fried dopamine receptors.
>>631279465Im also trans btw dunno if it matters
>>631279649I liked the Wendigoon vid on it
>>631289483>I liked the Wendigoon vid on it
>>631275846its a generational thing, but backrooms was always better when monsters were limited to certain levels or not at all. I still find slenderman and old SCP entries disturbing, but now most of everything has been ruined by the current generation.
>>631281789The '07 Disaster Report is pretty gud
I had to stop reading the Backrooms wiki page because how retarded it got. The first 75 or so rooms are kino but almost every room after that is pure fanfic at its worst. Too many safe rooms and outposts, for starters.too many plot holes as well such as “There is no known exit to this room” but also the next sentence will say “Here are all the known exits.” Stupid.
>>631290147That's just canon. There's very little Flesh Pit material that is fan created bullshit, which is surprising given the crystal bullshit machine stuff.
>>631290942Damn, do these niggas not proofread or smth?
>>631276853That's actually the thing I like about his take on the backrooms, the corporation isn't really that evil or incompetent.>guy falls down a hole into some uncharted area of the backrooms>his team immediately hauls ass to go get heavy lift gear so they can extract him from the pit>in the mean time he encounters a monster and barely escapes it>team gets back just in time to pull him out of the hole before it gets him>HQ reviews the footage>their immediate reaction is sending construction teams in to seal off that entire section of the backrooms and contain whatever the fuck was in thereReally subverted my expectations from the usual recycled evil megacorp slop everyone does. The company actually makes an effort to protect employees and doesn't have any interest in capturing the monsters and experimenting on them, instead they respond rationally and avoid that shit at all costs.
You can't tell me this shit isn't spooky afhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqkRTHZmCXw
>>631276853The “megacorp” isn’t even evil though just vastly underprepared
>>631293741Yeah but then you have that guy who got lost in the backrooms for a few months due to time travel stuff, and the company seemed to force him back into the backrooms.
>>631275846Not really. Only the screams were unsettling but IT being a stickman is funny.
>>631276473>What is it with normalfags and the gentrification of shit that originated off 4chanUMAD?
>>631281789Dont worry, normals will find it eventually. All it takes is one or two "What is...?" Youtube video essays and its all over
>>631295535That already happened Still standing
>>631294035they had already faked his death and were too embarrassed to admit their mistake
>>631277985>7 year olds are the same as 27 year oldsWhat the fuck is that bullshit! Who the fuck comes up with these generational ranges?
>>631276473NPCs can't appreciate a story or concept that leaves answering questions up to the readerProbably because they're incapable of critically thinking
>>631276473Anon, we're the cool kids
>>631281660>hot women in liminal spaces and unsettling environmentsanon, I think you just opened something up for me
>>631299451Clearly you haven't seen The Shining.
>>631276473im still angry they stole wojaks. you see wojaks on thumbnails for youtube kids now
>>631299504I have, that bathtub scene was okay but instantly ruined when she changed back into an old hag, maybe if the hag just didn't have a face, but a smoking hot body, that scene would have been pretty cool
>>631275846Sometimes I forget retarded 14 year old zoomies browse this site.
>>631297452(you)rAge - 1 = zoomer
>>631275846Everything about the "backrooms" beyond the initial concept fundamentally misses the whole point.
>>631297452generations are around 20 years because it's basically from point when the first people in your generation started having kids, to the point where their kids start having kids.
>>631299939fr fr these MFers straight up not bussin. Looking for memes that slap ong but keep getting yeeted and skeeted over into some mad cringepoop bro.
>>631300557So basically, people who were able to vote in 2016, and people who weren't even fucking BORN when Trump was elected are the same generation.Do you now realize how utterly retarded that is?
>>631300962>I don't understand what a generation is!Okay.
>>6312764734chan used to be subculture, but in the years since it was created normal society has become completely devoid of culture of any kind making 4chan subculture extremely attractive by comparison.
>>631301173Generations are groups of people who had a shared cultural experience and upbringing. If someone was already an adult when another person was born, they're not the same generation. There's no way in hell a 27 year old can relate to a 7 year old.
>>631281359>I never understood how people found this unsettling.Was it supposed to be?I always thought it looked rad as hell, I wish I had a swimming pool dungeon in my area.
>>631281359I dont think anyone is actually afraid of liminal spaces. Its more just a cool place to explore, like sneaking into an empty mall at night and walking around but endless
>>631275846Let's be honest, being trapped in an infinitely continuing sterile office building was way scarier before the monster appeared. Like you're going to die of starvation anyway, the reddit stickman monster if anything may as well be a quick release or at least some company.
>>631278225She's called suck ya but has no mouth. Deepest lore.
>>631277498How's it hangin' there, jimbo?
watched it a couplemeh
>>631301914>but endlessthats spooky anon, getting lost in there is like the nutty putty cave
>>631275846>zoomers greatest fear is open plan office space - because the thought of having to get a job and move out gives them panic attacks and makes them cryUnreal.
I hate the way zoomers changed the backrooms back then it was just a creepy and mysterious place that didn't have any lore or explantion because it didn't need any but now the backrooms is this grand place full of deep lore, ARG crap and creepy monsters that explains all the shit that happens there like zoomers need everything in horror to have a explanation or meaning
>>631297216>EmbarrassedNigger it would completely jeopardize the operation if they just let him go.
>>631275846>Be honest, lieYou are a fag.
>>631304069It's kind of like how Minecraft used to have large empty spaces as a major part of the game back when it was a millennial's game, but then when Microsoft started marketing towards zoomers they turned it into a Disneyland funhouse.
>>631277264this is where I want to see Kane pixel's version of the backrooms go, but he's so focused on all this edgy shit, its beginning to wear offMakes sense because he's a kid but still
>>631276473Man the wildest thing to me is how the UOOOOOOHHHH posting is used world wide now
>>631276618Same here.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YB3rM4Nq5xk>>631283424I like it and 'liminal spaces' because they remind me of my dreams. I wish I could enter and exit my dream world at any time. There are some pretty scary places in my dreams, but also very cool and relaxing places. I have a fairly accurate layout of where everything is in my dreams.>>631307907For me its seeing people posting or saying 'based'. I'm taken back each time it happens.
>>631285247Isn't this just Harry Potter?
>>631278327It's just a bug in reality, literally no clipping, I have no idea why people keep complaining about this>Uh that's so stupid how do I do it IRLYou don't dumbass
>>631275846Entities ruined it. It was scary because of terror. Now it is scarry because of "horror". It's shit.
>>631285247I think its more like walking down the sidewalk and accidentally walking into or stepping into a one-way teleport (that is invisible to the human eye).Kind of like if a hiker accidentally step into a weak point in the ground and fell into a cave or something.
>>631293741>science corp finds a vast dimension of randomly generated office space>first thought is 'we can rent out and sell space for big bux'That's the most realistic part of his version imoAlso dude got a movie deal out of it so he gets to bring his version to the big screen.
>>631308981>Office spaceLiterally asking for it
>>631287760it's true, THOUGH. despite twitterfags laughing at and disemvowing us, they secretly ape our shit because of the whole history and culture and whatnot that this anon mentioned >>631301235, greentexts alone are proof of this. hell, to further vindicate the subculture point, there's also been an obsession with icebergfaggotry and DA LOOOOOORE for the past few years
>>631308841the only terror from these empty spaces is ptsd remembering working retail.
>>631278804As a matter of fact, I have no idea why it's called "clip"
>>631281359It's devoid of natural light. Tiles in a swimming pool go where the water is, so to see the tiles on the walls and ceilings subconsciously makes the viewer imagine water filling the entire room, turning what was supposed to be a fun leisure area into a water-filled tomb. The composition of the image also shows no clear exits, creating a claustrophobic feeling.
>>631309180They are endless and empty, that is unsettling and your brain will start interpreting random noises as SOMETHING IS THERE at some point. As well as someone behind me and all that shit. Maybe offices just weren't your thing, or you don't care for liminal spaces all together
>>631277554A. Oldest is 12 or 11.
>>6312764734chan, or imageboards in general I guess, are basically the only places on the internet where anything organic can happen, since there's no content curation or archival (technically), so the shit that comes out of this place and others like it comes out because it is truly popular, it has to be to find a footing. Even the most soulless of normalfags can still respond to organic content, so they latch onto it and spread it elsewhere.Content is all that matters here, divorced completely from identity, it has to be able stand on its own without the clout of its creator propping it up.Of course, you get shills and such trying to manufacture trends here by constantly shitting up the boards with their content, but it's pretty obvious when that happens because it lacks variation and therefore engagement.
>>631309839>you don't care for liminal spaces all togetherprobably, I can't be creeped out by what just reminds me of mundane daily routine of early/closing shifts or my old abandoned school after sports practice
>>631276473>gentrificationfunny way of saying STEALING
The meme mills are closedNo OC is produced any more because of ''''''content creators'''''' stealing it to further their dogshit identities
>>631275846Can I get a quick rundown?

>>631311139that wire tangle behind your TV is alive and very fucking angry
>monster is a tall, emaciated creature, typically with no face or has a large mouth full of sharp/human teethHow FUCKING unoriginal can you get like jesus fucking christ
At this point I prefer Return To Render and his continued efforts to take the piss out of it
>>631278074You clearly aren't from /here/ or you'd know there being a monster was in the original post. Insisting there was never a monster ergo the concept is ruined is just standard anti-normie contrarianism.
>This made zoomers shit their pants
>>631275846The monster itself is not really a great design, but the atmosphere was spot on.The Complex is the best realization of the Backrooms I've ever seen, even better than Kane's.
>new Kane Pixels video drops>it's pseud garbage
>>631313170>>631275846>Whole video and its VHNness is spent making the monster difficult to see>The video thumbnail just gives you a clear view of it
>>631313097>lmao imagien being scaredWhat do you think horror media is meant to do you fucking trog? Boomers were scared of demons, Gen X of gore and millennials like you were scared by jumpscares.
>all the zoomers and self hating zoomers itt
It's so strange to me that backrooms became a thing.I mean, it's weird enough that SCP became as popular as it did, but backrooms are so fucking cringe>It's like an office but there's lots of it>Also, maybe there's a monster???>Amongus
>>631313310I'm borderline zoomer (depends on the exact year you start the bracket with) and I will defend liminal horror and the Backrooms by extension to the death. You contrarian fucks will not convince me to hate it just because Kane Pixels made it popular.
>>631313383If you don't get liminal spaces, you won't get the Backrooms. Can't help you.
>>631275846>ScaryIt was interesting. I don't how the fuck you felt any horror from it.
>>631313383It's just easy to replicate, with lots of square halls of dead-simple geometry to render and the excuse of the recording quality to blur shit enough so it can look real
>>631276770What did you do?
>>631313402Its a good concept, it was just driven to the ground once it zoomies outside of 4chin got ahold of it, until it became a walmart great value version of SCP and Cube
>>631313647That's why you ignore them and find the good ones. Most horror media IS garbage, just in general. You need to make an effort to find the good stuff. I again pimp The Complex.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUv5ksNcBp0
>>631313759*I again poop The Complex
>>631276070theres actually like fucking 40 backrooms games on steam.
>>631313887There's 40 games of anything on Steam, its Steam.
>>631313656What the zoomer thinks of himself>>631313797What he actually is
>>631313439>Buzz wordsFuck off autist.There's nothing to "Get". The concept is dry and uninteresting. The idea of something being scary because it's NOT something interesting but it MIGHT be CLOSE to something scary is literally as autistic as it fucking gets.It's a JJ Abrams style mystery box for people with short attention spans
>>631313797>>631313961You will never be young againStop playing with children's toys and get a real hobby
>>631276473The fucking craziest shit was talking to my mom and she was saying "butthurt" and talking about dumbass memes from her social media that I saw on here over 10 years ago.
>>631275846>retards complaining about the monster in this threadRetards missing the point as always. The scary part of the backrooms has never been the monster.
>>631314163I have a real hobby outside of vidya, but let a nigga laugh at zoomers
>>631314336I bet, "nigga"
>>631282628Physical monsters stop being scary when you remember guns exist. If It has a physical form, a big enough bullet will kill it.
>>631276473>we're 3 years away from troonjack and BBCson being spammed across twitter and YT thumbnails
>>631279649Nixonverse > Monument Mythos
>>631313569i didn't do anything, you cop
>>631314163>You will never be young againGood.
>>631279649I don't think the Analog Horror(tm) way it was presented was the best way to do it, seemed like pure trend chasing rather than a considered aesthetic. But the actual story was great. Maybe one day someone will give him enough money to make a proper show out of it.
>>631314704Exactly, so what's your point?
>>631313054The monster wasn't there, it was only ever implied. The horror of what might be there is infinitely better than the NU SCP shit of needing 50 pages of a 12 year old's first fanfic.
>>631315001>wasn't thereNigger there was literally something there. It doesn't say WHAT, but there is something there. What people fail on is the execution (usually).
>>631312271>monster is short, fat creature with a normal facekino
>>631315078You missed a key word>God help you if>IfIt's a rhetorical device to make you think you're not alone when you really are, because paranoia is more terrifying than certain fact. True horror and madness comes from the depths of your own mind, not anything real.
>>631315078What I meant was that the monster in and of itself wasnt the focal point, it was the point that you were basically stranded in an alternate reality that goes on forever.
>>631315205nta but this does just end up with>you are now walking around an empty bunch of backrooms with nothing happening except maybe you see a shadow once every 10 minuteswith regards to games. it never was made with something like games or shows in mind
When I found the 'backrooms wiki' and saw how well developed it was, I got excited as fuck. Like literally thought about it whilst at work. But then I actually read that shit.>Many levels made by kids>Levels that are somehow inhabited by cities worth of 'lost people' despite the overall theme being how alone and vulnerable you are in the backrooms>Levels with OP shit like "Drink the almond water on THIS LEVEL and THIS LEVEL ONLY to receive super strength and immortality, also be able to enter ANY other level WHENEVER YOU WANT>A couple of base creatures that appear throughout most levels, with lore amended by yet again, kids>"This is a creature, made from the absence of humans, by a god that was driven mad by the creations of earths god. It consists of crudely stuck together wire and shadow, and shares its gods distaste for the beings of our planet. Edit 24 by Captainoflevel6969_hunterforshadowcorp: These creatures are powerful enough to come into our world and kill whoever they please. Thats why they're the mortal enemies of the vigilante group 'shadow-corps'. The creatures must be intelligent, as they're shown to avoid this vigilante group when they're around.>All of the entries by actual people are like this, edited by kids for the purpose of adding in their weird shit.>Entries about weird artefacts that grant abilities, as if it were SCP>Most of these are just the day dreams of childrenHonestly, I feel like this was on the edge of becoming a fully-fledged fandom, but kids ruined it.
>>631275846Kane Pixels is genuinely the only fucking person that has made anything good out of the backrooms shit. Just like SCP, the original story got too convoluted, bloated, and downright retarded.
>>631315310Yeah, it works better if you frame all the monsters they keep making up, such as they are, as being what that person's paranoia is doing to them. It is the worst thing they can imagine.
>>631315205If there actually wasn't anything there, it wouldn't have been mentioned at all. This line of reasoning is not unique but it's pure psychological horrorfag cope who want the concept to be 'purified' of the monster, which they deem to be a 'lesser' form of horror or somrthing. The "if" is because there's a chance you may not run into it, given the size of the place, but putting the idea in your head that you COULD run into it will fuck with you. This 'it's all about the rooms themselves and going mad' is fine and all, and certainly applies, but don't twist the OP to make it fit what you want the Backrooms to be. There IS something there that you COULD run into.
>>631315469>NOOOO IT'S BECAUSE YOU DON'T WANT THERE TO BE A MONSTERGuess you're just too young to understand psychological horror.
I will never understand people who expect children to have good taste in anything. You were a retard and so are they. Who the hell gets mad at kids liking dumb shit?
>>631315618i was a retarded kid once so i get to bully retarded kids just as much as anyone else
it's just a fucking post on what, /x/? it's nothing, it's just a nothing post. "oh my god the lore". it's not like anon had some great fucking plan years later, about the monsters in the backrooms. it's a fucking throwaway post.
>>6312764734chan isn't the cool edgy website only weirdos goes to like you think it is, any one with ounce of website literacy has heard or been on 4chan for one thing or another and if not they atleast saw greentext or a meme that came from here being posted on reddit or any other media site
>Set up a threat that is much more interesting than the other monster established>Resolve it in the next videoWhat was he thinking?
>>631315618Making fun of kids being stupid is an age old tradition, they'll be doing the same fucking thing when they get older and the kids then are doing some other stupid bullshit.
>>631276473>What is it with normalfags and the gentrification of shit that originated off 4chanThat's always been the fucking case. Much like the world in general, they steal content, claim it as their own, then migrate into spaces that weren't designed with them in mind while criticizing those spaces for not fitting to their ""standards"" of beliefs. The same people who's uncredited work went on to inspire movies, games, and the internet's sense of humor in general are the same who used to post pictures of cocks crushed between two sheets of plexiglass. God, I hate the internet and "meme-culture".
>>631315786Gotta hurry shit along for my movie deal :)
>>631315608No, you're intentionally not getting it because you don't want monsters in the Backrooms, and also want to pimp the idea that was always the original intention so you can pretend you're an originalist and have better taste than everyone else.Whether I like or understand psychological horror (and that doesn't even really make sense, of course I do, there's nothing inherently high brow about psychological horror, it's about your own mind fucking with you) doesn't change the fact the Backrooms OP explicitly includes a monster of some kind. You can argue the Backrooms is better without one, but to say that it originally didn't have one is false, it's simply you twisting the OP to match your own preferences.
>>631279649So what did that soundrel Dean do to go from the country's darling into public enemy #1?
>>631314884my point is that there are no grounds for my arrest and you have no warrant
>>631315894do you think scott ever regretted making fnaf and if he hadn't what would have taken its place
>>631315618I dont think anybody expects kids to make anything of substance. I think you're just looking for a way to contribute an argument.
>>631315924Isn't the Deanverse Dean not even the real Den but the Alcatraz copy?
>>631316004He saw Garten of Banban and kneeled, understanding his superior.
>>631316004Why would he? It made him rich. Also, there's nothing wrong with having animatronics be your horror monster, the problem is that children aren't good at making horror media so naturally 99% of FNAF fan content or rip-offs are garbage.
>>631316091>garten of banban is just satire on the mascot horror genre>turns out it isnt and its straight up just mascot horror without any self awareness
>>631316004Nah, he's a pretty normal guy for Indie Gamedev standard, he's probably happy he was the one to hit the jackpot with a child franchise rather than an internet creep
>>631313887and yet OP used the thumbnail of a youtube video instead of any of those games
>>631316132anyone that makes anything with an animatronic in it post fnaf will now just be compared to fnaf
Where's the new local58?
>>631316240It's in the light
>THAT IS NOT A FUCKING PERSONThe exact moment this series jumped the shark.
>>631316328You wouldn't know kino if it ripped your fingers off and shoved them in your pee hole, boy.
>>631276473>>631278334>>631301235>>6313012354chan is one of the few places on the internet that still has a culture of its own, because places like Reddit are controlled almost entirely by corporate interests and overbearing mods. You aren't allowed to have an opinion, to post spicy memes, or to call someone a stupid nigger faggot (because that's what they are). You can't post images so making memes is extremely awkward and forced, usually text memes.Everyone apes 4chan because 4chan is the only place with anything even resembling original thoughts or concepts. Which is a god damn shame because even 4chan is a shadow of its former self in the mid to late 00s.
For me it's
>>631277264>organic tissueisnt anodyne the company responsible for skynet in the terminator movies?
>>631316504I really want to read this, do PDFs keep the gimmick of the book or should I wait and get it physical?
Kane Pixels is directing an A24 horror movie about the backrooms in his high school summer break and you're sitting here seething about him and other zoomers
>>631316240It's not coming. Same with Gemini. And now Kane is going to make an actual movie so there goes the series. The whole indie Youtube horror scene was this flash-in-a-pan and it's over now, things will go back to being stale and shit again.
If you poooooped in the backrooms, would it turn into a wire scrimblo?
>>631309642Nothing you said is true.
>>631316240I want to fuck Cadavres gf
>>631316567It isn't the best thing I've read, but I did enjoy it.I think the gimmick played a big role in that, having to physically work the book to string the narratives along is a large part of its charm. Just make sure you get the full color edition.
>>631304069Honestly, I don't see it much differently than SCP stuff. It started out as small stories here and there, and like any niche fandom, autists who spend entirely too much time being obsessed with stuff create a bunch of autistic, stupid, and often disjointed "lore" to combine it all together, because they can't just let things exist on their own.
>>631316032>I dont think anybody expects kids to make anything of substance.That's not even what I'm talking about, it's adults and people in their very early 20s making this stuff. The guy who does the backrooms animations is like 17 and the Mandela Catalogue dude started at 16 but most of the rest are not kids.I'm just talking about shitting on gen alpha for liking things that are for kids. If a large amount of kids and teenagers like something but to you it seems childish and stupid there's a good chance you are not the intended audience. As a result, I don't really get where the anger comes from.
>>631281359It's the color, to be honest with you. The blue in the corner and the red in the other makes me feel very off.
>>631287159Holy hell, I've forgotten the horror of GTA SA OOB stuff. I instantly reloaded my save out of fear when I did the one in the gym as a kid. The lack of music, the darkness, just this random ass street and house in a void with no one in it...The Liberty City one wasn't as scary since it was so familiar.
>>631308243>basedIt is called cancer for a reason, because of malignent uncontrolled growth.
>>631316605Gemini makes me mad. It was easily the highest quality AH on youtube and Remy just said fuck it to go make shitty generic ghost stories that are 10% the quality but seem to take him the same amount of time to make.
>>631316146It's published by "euphoric brothers". It's probably on the same tradition as cuck simulator and tyrone vs cops.
>>631316581pointing out pretentious garbage and making fun of the idiots that like said garbage isn't seething
>>631302016NTA, but I like it. It gets pretty over the top edgy at times, but it's also one of the only analog horror series that's genuinely scared me.
>>631315924>>631316041Keep in mind that Season 3 Dean isn't Season 1 Dean, it's an alternate timeline where Dean never ran for president. The implication so far seems to be that the death of his sister drove him insane.
>>631317158Wait, is Gemini done? I know it's been like a year since the last vid but is it done and done?
>>631316240>Cadavre in Harlem
>>631317158Oh damn...no more Gemini?
>>631321313I mean we already knew the Iris had nearly reached Earth but we kinda wanted to actually see the end. But Remy decided shitty ghost sighting videos were more fun.
>>631321468Was the ending definitively planned? I feel like there was a lot more to go with beyond just the Iris showing up
>>631280720looks comfy as fuck to me desu
>>631316004>do you think scott ever regretted making fnafConsidering he was able to retire on a fortune at 35 with his wife and kids, I doubt it.
>>631314163>He says on /v/
>>631316004Scott singlehandedly changed the indie game industry (if for better or worse it's up to you) and managed to make millions or maybe even billions while cranking out cheap horror games, i bet he's drinking pinas coladas on a sunny beach as we speak
I haven't seen one analog horror series or short which gets anywhere near as good or haunting as Noroi
>>631314501These things already get posted on twitter and facebook. /pol/ is a normie board populated by terminally online morons and literal fox news watchers, every single thing that gets posted there has already spread to the far reaches of the internet.
>>631301368There is one way ToT
>>631325443finally, an actual kino analog
>>631275846The ending of the video, where you leave the backrooms only to end up falling out of the sky to your death, is much scarier than either the liminal space or the monster
>>631326045only the camera fell though not him
>>631281660Is it bad that apart from the sexiness I always found the appeal in people wandering through the pool rooms?Shit's not even scary but imagine just chillin' in an endless pool with cool ass architecture that even taps into the non-euclidian aspect?Shit I think I still have art of ENA in the pool rooms, this shit is just cool
>>631312753See this is what I imagine too when looking at the pool roomsIt looks too comfy to not explore
>>631317158>No more Gemini>No more Local58>All we have left is that haha spooky doppelganger shit and the Gemini knock-off Vita Carnis the latter has potential with the most disturbing part being that it implies a fucking mother and child get murdered grusomely by a meat thing, but man I just can't get into the propsGod fucking dammit
>>631321976>2:45 most replayed part of videobased.
>its all rule of threes>normal thing>normal thing>spooky thing
>>631326817I like the painter so far. It's an excuse for le spooky faces, but if he reaches conclussion without dragging it on too much the meta plot is ok
>>631326968>The painterYou referring to what >>631325443 here posted?Shit looks interesting, I'm willing to give it a deeper look, I just fucking wish Gemini wasn't dead.
I'm 27 years old and have no idea what this is, I gather it was appropriated as some horror thing by zoomers recently? how? its an empty wall?
>>631275846>grow up in the golden age of ARGs>zoomers grow up with what looks like an AI generated horror-game mob designed by a soulless 16 year old hustle-bot
>>631327556name one good ARG
>>631302016It's the first analog horror series I've enjoyed since Local58. It's definitely got a formula it sticks to for every video but the imagery is very effective
>>631327609>the one zoomer response to anything pointing out their soulless existence and/or worthlessly pathetic aesthetic sensibilities besides ">old good new bad" is "SHEEEEEESH gimme your top 5 favorite (insert medium here)"personaliy archetypes are normal in each generation, but zoomers really are a generation beaten and empty mindsparents need to have their kids taken away if they're giving them phones before age 15.
I don't understand the appeal of shit like SCP and the backrooms, but I still watch Marble Hornets every few years despite its association with, well, you know.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wmhfn3mgWUI&list=PLCACDEE1E71FC8E5E&index=2
>>631327993SCP is the worst possible format for horror. Creepypasta thrived on the shadow of doubt about authenticity. What if that one monster is real? What if this .jpg actually is cursed? If you connect them all into a big fundation disproving one dusqualifies the rest, so even the ones that could have planted seeds of doubt fail because of the SCP branding.
>>631327639Man, I still miss Gemini and I don't think anything can really reach that kind of horrorEldritch horror has always been my favorite but this shit is like the body horror of the Thing combined with weird, alien-esque horrorGod I miss it, I need more shit like that in my life
>>631327990just tell me you're insecure anon
>>631328473>projectionI can do it too, soulless-zoom
>>631312753Thanks for introducing me to this artist
>>631278071Krautchan was a 4chan colony.
>>631328543i was genuinely asking for a good example of an ARG but you had to go be obtuse and write a paragraph instead of just manning up and saying 'i cant recall a specific but i know there are good ones'
>>631326817>Vita CarnisYeah that part was fucking crazy, I didn't think it'd go that far
>>631276473Especially with redditors and troons saying "based". >fuck transphobes>yass kween, based!When saying that a couple years ago means you are an evil vile naziThey are utterly incapable of creating anything of their own. Evil can only corrupt and never create, not even memes or slang. Remember Pepe was a hate symbol too? And "cope" was a trump thing? And now its all over zoomy twitch and every single discord server. They single out memes as being "alt right" and then steal them about a year later. I guess it shows how uncreative they are and how jealous they are, but I find it pathetic and disgusting
>>631329424Yeah that's honestly what has me interested.To be fair, Mimics have been done as a concept before IE Skinwalkers and shit, but with that disturbing scene, makes me wonder how far the dude will push it
>>631302016it's a solid 6/10. the artwork is amazing, but it's clear that the author doesn't really have any larger vision and just uses the plot as a vehicle to show you his paintings. him being esl is also a bit of an issue, the text is incredibly awkward at times. /v/ loves it because a few twitter trannies got mad over it, but it's really nothing special.
>>631313887There's several games about having sex with Hitler. Your point is Hitler is vidya?
>>631329798I tend to be more of a fan of stuff that's less gory, I was just surprised by how far he went with it. Hopefully he doesn't just lean in to gory stuff like that or just rely on kid death, but for what it was, it was pretty effective
>job simulator in a eerie remote isolated environment but sometimes spooky shit happensThese kind of games have massive potential although I don't think either of them have realized the potential to be absolutely terrifying.
Do people even play horror games anymore or just watch youtubers playing them?
>>631276473the wojak originated off of krautchans int tho
>>631331126Isn't there another one being made that's sort of psuedo-gmod?
>>631280049Homestuck was a something awful comic that made its way onto 4chan with threads inhabited by tumblr faggots you fucking newfag, the problem was that it was huge on tumblr which fucking ruined it at the troll arc as Hussie stopped pandering to SA and started pandering to them. Fucking sort yourself out newfag, it was never a 4chan comic as the cross posters on here went from SA rejects who liked problem sleuth to fucking tumblr retards who wanted to be edgy and shit post in record speed.

>>631277320But that's the only way it could feasibly work. You can't noclip out of reality that's now how noclip fucking works.It's a shit fucking premise.
>>631314430This results in another issue where the creators compensate but making the monsters OP against modern firearms.
>>631337060When a game lets you noclip into some other space that clearly isn't intended for a player to enter, that's effectively leaving reality, with reality being the space that is the game's 'real world'
>>631337060>there are unnerving things that lie past the human perceptionWhy do you feel the need to feel superior about such an innocuous concept?
>>631333941id like to know who came up with the concept
>>631275846God the backrooms is pure garbage. It was ruined by YouTube
>>631279649At first but went overboard
>>631337083Hate thar shit
>>631282284Thanks for giving me another -slop buzzword to add to my filter.
>>631326817>vita carniscan't stand the shitty TTS
>>631328265Old SCP was cool precisely of the idea of a secret morally grey organisation trying to contain and research unusual or paranormal creatures or phenomena and most of the good stuff was basically "We don't know what this really is, how it does what it does or what it could be capable of if it was let loose, so let's just keep it caged and sometimes poke it with a stick"Then it got really REDACTED and just became REDACTED and REDACTED with way too much REDACTED which started to be a serious REDACTED in the REDACTEDAdd to it the redditor tranny invasion and people unironically going "this is my epic es cee pee OC, it's a super cool alien girl who can destroy all the super stronk es cee pees and will save the world but the MEAN SCP organisation is keeping her locked up and won't listen!!!"
>>631276473The real answer is we did it to ourselves. People here don't want to be left alone or anything, they literally make shit for attention. We have had boards do massive outreach to other sites over the years and the site blowing up was always inevitable with behavior like that. To say everyone stole from this site is to say nobody here ever fucking gave it away.
>>631342359I hate that the upper ceiling for quality for SCPs has gone way up, but the general quality has fallen off a fucking cliff. There's some genuinely great shit being written, but you have to dig through so much more garbage to find it these days.
>>631275846Aaaahh an empty corridor save me niggerman
I like the one where they do the california girls meme dance over the dead monster
>>631275846The monster design literally looks like a 3 year old's drawing of a robot. The sound was fine though I guess.
I wonder if the anon who made the original post regrets what he originated. He basically gave ammunition to the same kind of people as the autistic Sonic fans.
>people keep making fun of you for being afraid of empty rooms>cope by making up silly shit like well it's a pocket dimension! People still point and laugh>now add a le spooky household junk monsterNo, it's not scary and never will be. Infact, I've started to think the "viral" success of this shit has been a 24/7 queer op by a marketing company.

>>631347047He did something different with the backrooms concept that worked. It got popular, and through his work he showed potential as someone who would succeed in movie making. Connections sure maybe, but I don't think anyone can deny he has a talent for it. Even if you hate backrooms the guy is good at cinematageophy and music (he makes his own music too, has been for years).>>631354853You have any proof of that? You think Kane Pixels, the guy making Attack on Titans videos at the time, was the one who posted the backrooms post on /x/ years back, in preparation for making and succeeding in producing backrooms videos in a sea of backrooms crap, so much so that he would get the attention of hollywood, just because he was backed by money? Does any of that make sense to you?
>>631275846red bionicle if he real
>>631276473I don't know man
>>631275846Remember how the Backrooms used to be about a hostile, mysterious environment and not a million entities and floors that was just somehow shitter SCP
This is why I'm afraid to make my own online story thing because it'd get populated with 12 year olds who make a million shitty overpowered OCs every single second
Why is the Local58 guy so fucking lazy? he could've been on top of horror mountain if he didn't only post a video once every year.
>>631357583I'm more of a Zach and Tomar fan.
>>631358895Being on top is not a good thing
How does a guy like this walk around public without being noticed?
>>631358895He's apparently also a novelist, and hasn't finished that either iirc
Why is it everyone moved away from SCP to the Backrooms anyways?
>>631300962that's just how it is, a father and son will generally end up in different generations, and that's all that matters to the categorization of it. even if you were born at the tail end of a generation, that just means generally your kids will be born around the tailend of the next generation if you have them as a young adult.
>>631359954Because modern SCP is even worse
>>631282628just don't break your legs while trying
I feel strange. Like I'm immune to the whole generational gap and am capable of understanding anyone from all generations
>>631360467also, i think people misuse generations, the categorization isn't based on sharing a similar pop culture, it's about familial generations, your father's generation will be generally one generation before yours, and your grandpa's generation will generally be one generation before his, or two generations before you.
>>631361531Categorising it culturally is a recent thing, it was originally meant for demography. So 25 years give or take for a generation to be born, grow up, and give birth to the next. With how it's done these days, gen Z occupies a scant 15 years before Alpha kicked in around 2015, gen Y is said to be anywhere from as far back as 1990 to 1980, while X and Boomers blend a bit at the edges. Can't wait for the next generation to have less than a 10 year run before they announce the next so everyone realises how bullshit the cultural measurement is.
>>631275846who was the fucking stupid that put monsters in backrooms?
>>631364739You are a zoomer.
>that SCP fan animation disappeared off the face of the earth>gee I wonder where the troubles could have started?>"I feel like an...egg.">Ohhh noooooo!At least we still have ENA.
>>631365302The original anon
>>631318569What's pretentious about it? Do you even know what that word means?
>>631359293He's just a thin guy with long greasy hair and possibly on drugs. You'll find worse creatures shoping at Walmart
>>631365752Ena doesn't have any social bullshit, it's just weird
>>63136368021. I don't really discriminate based on age, I discriminate based on taste. Primarily how I hate everything related to FNF and that's it
Piss Yellow is kind of a shitty(heh) color desu
>>631367974don't post that gato sexo
>>631279649He's very good just a little scattered brained some times. Probably one of the best/unique minds when it comes to analog horror. However his inability to let things be open ended or trying to connect everything together really hurts his work. That & obviously how finicky he is sometimes with deleting whole series & starting ideas, then never finishing them.
What’s your favorite 4chan-originated meme or phenomenon?
>>631276473Normalfags joke about pokephilia because they find it funny like a black humor thing, they don't ever consider it seriously.
>>631314501that already happened like three years ago.

AAAAGH OUTDATED INTERIOR DECORATING I'M GOING INSAAAANE
>>631308932You sound like a pretentious moron who has no idea of what he's talking about. >>631308709It doesn't make any fucking sense and it's just stupid. It's shows that whoever the retard that came up with this backrooms garbage is either unable to properly explain his idea or simply can't create actual good concept. >>631278463Do you really not realise how braindead and moronic you sound when you use the word "noclip" to describe something in real life for a "horror" story?Fuck, it annoys me how retarded you are.
>>631374153nigga i'm none of those anons but the only pretentious retard here is youImagine getting this mad about metaphor. Give your head a shake
>>631315158Thats just a 4chan user
>>631277498basedsomeone recommended this on another thread and I absolutely loved it
https://m.youtube.com/@OmukadebozoVHS/videosWatched the Jackson Logs(those videos just called Analog Horror) its pretty cool, clearly inspired by Urbanspook, haven't watched his older stuff yet tho
>>631365752Will it be, dare I say, ludo?
for me it's the Mystery Flesh Pit
>>631365752Why couldn't he continue after trooning out? I don't get it.
>>631365752Literally just a couple of days ago he apparently helped corroborate evidence that his co-writer had been raped by some other youtuber, only for said other youtuber to produce damning evidence that the literal exact opposite had happened lmao Yeah that shit is over, I doubt it is ever coming back after this shit.
>>631354415Have we actually reached a point where shitposting now ropes in the children of anons?
>>631377921>ywn have abyssal copepod served with a side of butter
>>631342359SCP was just a ripoff of Warehouse 13 with a little bit of Cabin in the Woods.
>>631380542>SCP was just a ripoff of Warehouse 13 with a little bit of Cabin in the Woods.this is b8 right?
>>631277264organic tissue cut that thin would be transparent. That looks like an H&E stain or maybe a PAS meaning the tissues been processed can't be alive.
>>631380719shh let him be fucking retarded
>>631380719>>631380781Warehouse 13 is from 2009 anon.
>>631380779but muh magic pit monster
>>631276473>the vaporeon thread made almost everyone a pokephilethat's not gentrification, it's infection
>>631277264So how advanced is technology in the Mystery Flesh Pit universe? I'd imagine they'd have smartphones by the late 90s based on this.
>>631381228first SCPs were written in 2007, retard-kun
>>631381840it doesn't seem like it's that much more advanced. it's like all the flesh pit stuff just vanished into a black hole after 2007 and before then there weren't any crazy advances because of it.
>>631382017Peanut's concept was around for a while but I don't believe the complete concept for Secure, Contain, Protect was around until after Warehouse 13. There is no way MTF:NTF was around as a concept until CitW
>>631382325>I don't believewhat you do or don't BELIEVE is irrelevant, retard-kun
>>631377921That Mystery Flesh Pit novel was pretty hot
>>631382325>Warehouse 13>2009>SCP wiki>2008Dumbass
>>631380779It's an advertisement anon. If you were advertising a computer using the power of an organic flesh monsters nerve tissue the best way to show it off would be to use images of stained tissue slides. on the chips.
>>631382523There's a novel?
>>631381607>>631380779>>631277264That's not supposed to be a photograph. It's an artist's rendering for marketing purposes, probably published in magazines.>>631381840>>631382141The idea seems to be that all the high tech stuff Anodyne was hyping up just turned out to be vaporware or impossible to produce at scale. Maybe sometimes they found new kinds of tissue that they start trying to exploit then it dies and they can't find any more.
>>631316605>The whole indie Youtube horror scene was this flash-in-a-pan and it's over now,you know how old fucking marble hornets is? flash in the pan my ass. eventually another horror meme will take off and a bunch of people will jump on it and the cycle will repeat.
>>631381840they had cyborgs that they can put your brain into if you end up as a horrific flesh amalgam combined with other creatures and they need to separate you out.>The brain, and any other extracted organs, would each be placed into a respective life support module before being connected together.>Through a rudimentary DOS-based machine/brain interface, it was possible through therapy to establish contact with the “person”, who often retained full memory and mental cognizance. With training, the person could even develop some semblance of a quality of life through the use of cameras, microphones, text-to-speech vocalizers, and in a few cases mechanical prosthetics such as armatures or ambulatory life support equipment racks.they also made many advances in computer technology but because it all came from the flesh pit it all ended up unusable after 2007 due to lack of material.
>>631383225Also there's even more ancient shit like this.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iFXyLah2oQThere has always been indie horror coming out of youtube and it's not going to end just because the flavor of the month is faded a bit.
>>631359954SCP is heavily moderated and curated by mentally ill trannies high off their asshole fumes while the Backrooms wiki was the Wild West.
>>631382975Yeah. Technically it's fan fiction I guess but the flesh pit's creator endorsed it as being really close to the spirit of the project and it's linked on the official mystery flesh pit blog so that was good enough for me. It's a long ass book but it was pretty good, kind of Stephen King vibes. >set in 2011>journalist find out she has HIV, gets depressed>finds out about the flesh pit randomly one day and about the ballast, decides to try and go investigate and see if she can get some ballast to try and cure her HIV>stumbles onto a human trafficking ring where a former ranger is smuggling people into the pit>interviews him, there's a whole flashback sequence to the 2007 disaster, really well done imo>he smuggles her past the fence around the pit so she can get some pictures but they get caught>she talks her way into tagging along on an expedition down inside the pit>everything goes horribly wrongThere's this one sequence later on where she finally stumbles into a ballast bulb and she drinks some and it describes exactly how incredibly horny it made her, cause the undiluted ballast is supposed to be a crazy strong aphrodisiac, and then while she's hiding in the bulb trying to decide whether to crawl out of there or just give up and start masturbating right there, one of the rangers on the expedition gets inside the bulb as well while he doesn't know that she's there, and he starts drinking it and jerking off literally right next to her and she's having all these intrusive thoughts about fucking him.
for me it's https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWXnt2Z2D1E
>>631384012That does sound breddy hot
>>631384014One of the best desu
Does anyone know any good Jurassic Park analog horror? I always thought the concept was cool, especially for the time period and the imagery of the dinosaurs in the book being something good to work off of.
>>631384617Just google 'mystery flesh pit down the rabbit hole', it should be one of the top results, it's on AO3>>631384514Yeah. The amount of detail in terms of what she was feeling and thinking during that section really impressed me.
Posting only the spookiest.
>>631275846The original backrooms post on /x/ was slightly interesting, mediocre at best, everything after that evolved from that was shit.
>>631316420It's moreover, threads happen, die and then we move on. Besides the old archive dying in 2016, a greentext pic will be something substantial. Does anyone post straight posts from reddit? No. Will anyone remember a reddit thread? No.I been on this site for 20 years starting in 2024, seen many things, but no matter how shit this place gets i can say what i want.
>>631385112there is one on youtube but it's shit and completely misunderstands the book
>>631313054>The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door...This is just the same idea as the worlds shortest horror story how did it become such a big deal?
>>631385220why did you post the sexiest?

>>631386294>that tile in the top leftGod dammit.*unzips pants*
>>631312753Kane's series definitely has the most potential / worldbuilding, but Return to Render videos are much more entertaining in my opinion. I love how aloof the researchers are, a lot of the dialogue reminds me of early Red vs Blue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUHcGyshFJI&
>>631300962So tell us what a proper generation is instead of sounding mad because you found out you are a zoomer.
>there are empty rooms in your house right now?how do zoomers cope with this?
>>631301368They grew up with the exact same shit. There actually used to be a difference in culture as time went on. Now days everything has been the exact same since around 2013. Every single child is born into smartphones and internet. Every single child wants to be an internet personality. Every single young adult refuses to work because it's harder than having the government control your life. 27 year olds have a higher chance of being raised by old school adults and maybe having common sense which makes them feel like they are better than zoomers, but every generation has its outliers.
>>631349940>Nepotism His videos are extremely popular and he has ~2M youtube subscribers. I'd say he earned it even if he may have had some connections. Success is where luck and preparation intersect.
>>631301368Different generations are able to relate to each other you braindead retard.
>>631388482So this is what 27 year olds are like?
>>631388971Nice cope. Everyone born in 1996 is like that.
>>631389034untrue, some of us only play Factorio
>>631386294I hate what you people have done to me.
>>631281359Just like the gothic aesthetic is based on the decay of gilded age mansions, this aesthetic is based on the decay of the 80s and 90s prosperity
>>631317158Gemini was OK because it was the only other thing that came close to local 58s quality, but it quickly got sloppy as fuck. The mystery gets ruined when nasa and paid programing is literally showing you the bad guys. They even made a videogame? It's way too zoomy for me
>this thread is still upWhy are you faggots so obsessed with zoomoids lmao?
>>631389423never post my fucking tilefu again
>>631364739Do you remember what life was like before smartphones or internet?
>>631389771*sips* Yep, I remember life before the iPhone. Simpler times. Zoomies will never understand coming home from school and playing some Pokemon Emerald while sipping a cold one. Now all they do is get on their phone and watch TikTok videos. They'll never know the world us last of the millennium babies grew up in.
>>631388868Thank god I'm a 1996 millenial and not a 1996 zoomer, I must have just missed the cutoff point.
>>631389950>I can't relate to anyone born after the 90sI was born in 1989. I have nothing in common with in 1980s.
>>631388101They associate their fear with the wrong thing. They THINK they're scared of the empty rooms when they're actually scared of the deathly quiet and environment that might have something lurking in it
>>631388868zoomer hereThe only thing on that pic I care about is sus
I want to make an Ultraman inspired analog horror series where the MC is basically forced to confront horrors beyond his imagination because he's fused with a giant alien and stuff
>>631390375They're scared because the rooms are empty, because even the lurkers have been scared off
>>631278334>cool and edgyIt's cool and edgy to them, but just another day for us.No one here tries to be edgy, just retarded
>>631390793I genuinely see you guys as smart. Remember that
>>631388868Many of them yes. Just because your age falls into a generation you don't like it doesn't mean you are exactly like the majority. Eight years ago I was working with 17 yr old highschoolers that were obsessed with 6ix9ine.
>>631389950I can't tell if this is is joke because it's real, but maybe that's the joke
>>631391384It's not a joke.
>>631390793The goreposters exist thoThey are edgy AND retarded
>>631313797>not: I dead ass don't think about you ong
>>631313656This post implies all of 4chan is obsessed with zoomers when, going on any other board, it's clear that's only the case for /v/.
Imagine being the anon who made that /x/ post and seeing a bunch of talentless fuckwits steal your idea and make money off it.
>>631388868>>631388971I was born in 1995. That flossing teenager you're posting would be 27 years old if he were born in 1996.

>>631302016I watched a week ago and now sleep its a little bit more difficult.It sticks to the whole "Analog" thing, instead of switching formats on the fly.Also there is no paranormal stuff
>>631316004Isn't Scott quite literally a devout Christian family man with lots of kids? He's probably happy that his children are set for life.Dude's made it. Living the dream raising a bunch of kids and making silly little games for them.
