Baldi’s Basics in Education and Learning (also called Baldi’s Basics) is a quick indie horror game. It was hurriedly slapped together in a couple of days for a contest, and it shows, yet despite this, the game has almost immediately gained a cult following for uniquely utilizing a “terrible yet nostalgic 90’s edutainment games” motif, along with creating a fandom composed mostly of people from the previous “big” indie horror games. In response, the developer greatly expanded upon it with a content update.
The player is a student at Baldi’s Schoolhouse, whose goal is to collect and fill out seven notebooks scattered about the campus (each notebook containing 3 math problems) that their friend had left in the school, but cannot get them himself due to “eating practice”. The only problem is that a few questions are unsolvable Black Speech (like in real life), and Baldi gets so mad over failing students that he feels the need to hunt them down like the survival horror monster he really is with a ruler in hand with your butt’s name on it. Meanwhile, there are other entities in the school that try to hinder your progress, such as a jump-roping girl, the school’s principal, a giant talking broom, a bully, a sock-puppet, a hug-loving Cyborg on wheels, a chalk drawing, a boy who loves bubblegum, a head in a shoe, and a creep in black. The game can be downloaded here.
In July 2018, game creator Micah McGonigal began a Kickstarter to fund and create a full retail version of Baldi’s Basics, which would tentatively include new features such as new characters and items, randomly generated levels with new rooms featuring new mechanics, random in-game events to change up the gameplay, and “field trip” bonus rounds to unlock buffs in the main game. A proof-of-concept demo of the camping bonus round can be found here. The Kickstarter was successful, with a total of $61,375 raised for the project.
In April 2019, an update to the original game titled “Baldi’s Basics: 1 Year Birthday Bash” was released. It adds some new elements to fit the birthday aesthetic, but more importantly adds a new ending. August 2019 saw the release of the full game’s first demo, which includes one level and features many features that are planned to be included in the final game, with a second Kickstart backer-exclusive demo to come later (which is, the 2nd of November 2019).
