In BackDoor, the kid is trapped inside a house, with no one to talk to him except for a person who calls on the telephone. The player's goal is to help the kid escape the house by examining the different items around each room and utilizing them to assist in his escape.


Throughout the game, the main character is addressed as the player through the use of second person.

An image of a boy falling is seen.

Narrator: This isn't so bad. Falling's kind of fun when you know you won't hit the ground. That's the nice thing about dreams. And you're obviously dreaming, so...There's nothing to worry about.

The kid hits the ground.

Narrator: ...ouch. OK, so you weren't dreaming. The pain's made that pretty clear.

The kid looks up.

Narrator: Now you're in some kind of strange bedroom. Definitely not your bedroom. A phone is ringing.

The player is prompted to move the character and answer the phone.

Telephone: Hey kid, ya doing all right? Looks like you took a nasty fall there. You're probably wondering where you are. Don't you worry though, I'm here to help! Of course though I'm not going to tell you where you are, or how to get out of this room. ... ... Well, maybe I'll see you downstairs!


BackDoor has several music tracks composed by different people. Most tracks are used in the game, though one is exclusively found in the jukebox only. One track played in the game does not appear in the jukebox at all.
