    The amount of horror I felt hearing "That is done and there is nothing more to be extracted" when they were talking about Peters death and how the next image was of a syringe, that generally made my heart drop. Generally feels like he was killed off because he was too much of a risk.

      ​​@NeonFroot how is the very real biological process of transitioning from a child to an adult "artificial"? Becoming an adult isn't flicking a light switch, adolescence and puberty are several years long and represent the biggest physical and mental changes humans go through. I'd avoid throwing around the idea that 13 year olds are the same as adults.

    The idea of being driven insane not by the Complex itself but by the self preservation efforts of Async after faking a man's death was beautifully written. I can't get enough of this series.

    • Zucchini Angst
      Zucchini Angst 5 days ago

      I can’t say I blame Async for having to take careful time to “undo” the situation as far as faking Tench’s death. They’re funded by the government and when working in classified programs, they would likely cover it up as well. You can’t really say “he just disappeared” without evidence of it. It’s sucks, but I’m not convinced they’re wholly evil. Just an unprecedented situation and trying to do the best they could.
      EDIT: I could also be totally wrong, though that’s my interpretation of it so far.

    Now that I think about it, things really aren't looking up for Marvin.
    He's been participating in a project with some sort of "otherworldly" spaces, which in itself isn't that bad. But then, his friend disappeared in the completely unknown circumstances, so eventually he had to come to terms with Peter's potential death. Next, he ended up facing some hellish entity and barely got away with his life. Then, on top of that, he suddenly met his "undead" friend, only to be held at gunpoint by him, witness how he shoots his teammate, and hear the next day that now Peter *really* was dead.
    I'm afraid that, after all that, something similar might happen to Marv. Either he'll say hasta la vista to A-Sync or he'll go bonkers too, unless he's really got some nerves of steel, lmao

      @Thaddeus TV Well, that's what the camera recorded, but I think the way the scene played out strongly suggests that the being started chasing Marv once he entered its area. Besides, no matter what actually may have happened, that's how it looked like from his POV

      It's clear that the person was talking to an audience since the beginning, so making them show some reaction is something crucial. An actual example of attention to detail can be found in the second found footage: in the multi store part, you can hear somebody crying/moaning far away in the background. Almost nobody seems to have noticed it, yet there it is.

    The imagery of the last minute is beautiful. The words, “There is nothing more to extract.” As the sun falls behind the horizon, plunging the world into darkness.
    Followed by flashing security camera images of a man running down city street.
    It could be expanded on for sure. But nothing compares to the psychological horror that this guy still thinks he’s in the back rooms, and on some level always will.

    What I like about your Backrooms series is that the people at A-Sync are also trying to figure out what’s going on along with us, the viewers (even if we’re given all the events out of order). It’s not like FNAF where it’s all up to the fans to solve everything and find/piece together every detail all on their own. A-Sync is just as confused as us for how Peter somehow jumped through time. good job Kane! Thank you for creating a backrooms series that’s actually pretty nice to follow and well made without it being like “oooOOOOOO scary liminal space with a VHS filter and a monster that was poorly rendered in blender resulting in yet another chase sequence oh no!!1!11!”

    Its a true miracle for both Kane's writing and the voice actor that I can witness to what would normally be a "here's what the author intended" scene, get a detailed breakdown of the chain of events, and think "I believe you, but I don't believe your message". Felt like the person giving the presentation in-universe was effectively reading from a curated script.

This tale has pretty strong legs, and I can't wait to see where you run with it.

    Oh, the canvas can do miracles
    Just you wait and see, believe me

    And if the wind is right you can find the joy
    Of innocence again

    Takes me away to where I've always heard it could be
    Just a dream and the wind to carry me
    Soon I will be free
    It gets the best of me
    When I'm sailing
    All caught up in the reverie
    Every word is a symphony
    Won't you believe me?
    Takes me away to where I've always heard it could be
    Just a dream and the wind to carry me
    And soon I will be free
    Well, it's not far back to sanity
    At least it's not for me
    And if the wind is right you can sail away
    And find serenity
    Oh, the canvas can do miracles

    I LOVE the fact that the wording, phrasing and the almost soothing voice had me believing everything, and started me down the path of thinking ASync was "legit"... Right up until being informed that Peter simply fell and hit his head on a rock - which just has a foul smell of coverup. And that final sentence is structured and also said in a way that ever so subtly feels almost threatening. That he is and was dead - hinting at a "and don't you dare challenge this statement or you too will find yourself falling onto a rock!".
    I am really looking forward to see what you will accomplish with a professional studio backing you!

      It didn't solve anything; it was just a recap of what we already knew.
      plus it is beyond obvious the narrator is lying, since it is the company covering for their mistakes and lying to their team. For instance, it is obvious Peter didn't die from falling and hitting his head on a rock; either the security team outright killed him (as was ordered), or they captured him and are secretly using him for experiments
      I guess that is a cliffhanger, but it literally doesn't solve anything

    This was perfect closure to Peter (yes, the detail about him dying from the stumble may be a cover-up). It shows that Async was methodical and cautious while studying the time-warp and trying to assimilate Peter, all while keeping the project running as smoothly as practical. Async isn't some exaggerated cartoon-villain shadow organization that 'only cares about the money, power and higher-ups'. Major props for writing a compelling monologue - as others have said, it felt like I was in a real meeting.

    Kane was so smart here. Instead of animating the full movements of a human, which is something considerably hard to make convincing, he took advantage of the way old security cameras captured images, so he only had to animate certain poses without much transition between.

    • Fort, night
      Fort, night Month ago

      @mothchu That also doesn't mean you need to realistically animate the entire model. You can simply pose it then move the entire model / root back & forth, which is more than enough to create motion blur. It literally takes 1 minute + render time to do it.
      Hell, you don't even need to move the model at all... You can simply just pose the model, render frame, add motion blur effects to the model with another software, since it's all frame by frame it also takes like 2-3 minutes to do it. You can even do it with a cheap ass free software like PhotoScape.
      This is one person doing / managing everything. What makes him great is that he is able to work his way around to beat the limitations and creates an immersive story by putting the pieces together.
      Plus he has a good taste in a lot of things.

      Rewatching this, the presenter already gave the company or its rogue security team away. Sensory deprivation? Was he in solitary confinement? In a room lacking in features? Vsauce was already losing it when he tried it himself for 3 days. They were grossly negligent in holding Tench for 2 weeks in such a condition or they really were messing with him.
      Edit: nvm, photo of the holding room that looks bland as heck
      Edit2: Rewatching MatPat react to Reunion, he pointed out Peter would be dangerously lacking in sustenance (food, water) if he really was in the complex for 2 weeks. I've done a week and a half of no food, but gosh darn did I need a lot of water. So now I'm gonna give a +1 to the presenter's credibility that Peter really was kept in a holding room that was really lacking in features, which is basically mind torture (see Vsauce's Isolation from Mind Field). The end part of the presentation though, still incredi-sus.

      You don't see it? This is the cover story, initially they planned to reverse the deceased status, it didn't work. So they let him escape and then "die" to a rock. In reality he was let go and ran somewhere to live his life as another person . But as it stands Tench is officially going to remain dead.
      If they really wanted to stop him there were so many opportunities, they could've shut down the lift, apprehended him at the surface level. I'm pretty sure there's more security on the surface level, and more locked doors. And after what he did do you really think some random researcher would've managed to get the shotgun back from him? Not likely. He probably dropped it off to avoid suspicion once he came upto the surface.

      The interesting thing is that time traveling into the future is actually possible in our universe. It happens to everyone every second that they live. Now, sounds like I'm making a cop-out, right? "Yeah, but that's not what we mean by time travel!"
      Well luckily for you, the same mechanism that brings us forward in day-to-day life can be sped up. Well, technically time SLOWS DOWN for certain objects, but that causes the less slowed down time for objects around them to seem to speed up. Thanks to relativity, people in certain places will progress through time faster or slower than others, and in certain extreme parts of the universe- such as near a black hole- time slows down for whatever's near it to such an extreme degree that the rest of the universe appears to speed up to ABSURD speeds. Spend a second near a supermassive black hole, and the whole universe will be different than it was before you got close. If you managed to leave the black hole, you would have leapt forward in time an unimaginable amount of years.
      This is not science fiction, mind you. This is real life and there are objects out there experiencing this very scenario. Maybe even some living creatures, but... well... as soon as they get that close to a black hole, they're not living anymore. And I'm not sure if it's possible for any organisms to travel far enough to reach a supermassive black hole.
      This is also not talking about how speed impacts time, either. Or the difference between being on Earth versus in space.
      It's crazy stuff. Forward time travel is real and you're doing it all the time to minor degrees. So, yeah. It would be pretty crazy to be told he time traveled, but not quite as crazy as you'd think.

    There's a link in the description to a motion-capture suit, so Kane has made enough money from this series to really start using the same tech that the professional game and movie industry are using! It's so freaking cool! Granted, motion capture still usually requires some polishing, so this is by no means taking the easy route. I'm really happy that Kane has made enough money to focus so much on this series as what seems like a part time job/hobby/passion. While the overlayed effects of the low-quality camera and greyscale color palette (at times) makes slight imperfections in animation blend in, it's still no easy task to do what him and his team of creators are doing. Can't wait to see where this goes!

    Two, the ending scene takes place within Autopsy Report, which is the first time the TV scene has been referenced ever since it’s first appearance. With the phone ringing and background sound effects theres some kinda sketch going on

    First time watching with headphones. The sound design is epic. A truly immersive experience

    If you compare the movement of the hazmat guys in the earlier videos to the staff walking and working and running now, Kane's movement animation has gotten so good and it was already amazing to begin with.
    Kane's work started off really great but it's awesome to see his growth as the series goes on aswell.

      @AverageTexan You're correct 😆, I wrote that fast and later kept thinking about if I used the right term.

      He has a link in the description to a motion-capture suit, so he's made enough money from this series to really start using the same tech that the professional game and movie industry is using! It's so freaking cool! Granted, motion capture still usually requires some polishing, so this is by no means taking the easy route. I'm really happy that Kane has made enough money to focus so much on this series as what seems like a part time job/hobby/passion. While the overlayed effects of the low-quality camera and greyscale color palette (at times) makes slight imperfections in animation blend in, it's still no easy task to do what him and his team of creators are doing. Can't wait to see where this goes!

      @Andrés Arce procedurally generated? I don’t think you know what that word means
