This trap level makes players believe that they have escaped the backrooms to enter reality again.

However, all the entities aren’t hostile. The player can even enjoy the atmosphere a bit with their favorite song playing in the background through vents.
At the end of the hallway, there will be a door. The player/ person can choose to go through that door or not. They can try noclip or attempt any other escaping method. But, if the player decides to go through the door, they will be transported back to level 0.
How do I get out of level 0 backrooms?
Level 0 is called The Lobby. This level gives us a “tutorial” on what the backrooms look like. This level uses the original image found on the thread on 4chan that depict the backrooms with old and yellowed wallpaper, wet carpet with an old smell, and buzzing lights.
There is no good ending in escaping level 0 of the backrooms since “players” will only be transported into another level or a void dimension. It depends on how we navigate the level. For example, breaking the floor may lead the player into level 27. Or if the player noclip through a wall, they can be transported to level -1.
