Available now!
Welcome to Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning!

Baldi's Basics Classic Remastered is a survival horror stealth game that parodies cheap 90's edutainment and never takes itself too seriously. Explore Baldi's schoolhouse and try to find all 7 notebooks, but don't get caught by Baldi! He wants to play hide-and-seek, but something... Isn't right. Luckily you have a slew of items you can find and use to your advantage, but Baldi also has friends who can cause problems for you if you're not careful. And remember, Baldi hears every noise you make, so do what you can to stay quiet!

This is the ultimate version of Baldi's Basics Classic!

Escape Baldi's schoolhouse again in this new remastered version of Baldi's Basics Classic! Featuring three games in one, gameplay improvements, a more authentic art style, accessibility improvements, and brand new ways to play! Whether you've played the original or this is your first time, you'll surely have a blast!

Featuring three games in one!

You can experience the original game by playing in Classic Style, or you can try Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash, which wraps all the items up and shuffles them around, by playing in Party Style. Anyone who hasn’t played Baldi’s Basics Plus yet can get a taste of some of that game’s features with the new Demo Style, which mixes many of the new elements found in Baldi’s Basics Plus into the classic map! All three styles can also be played in endless mode too, where you can try to collect as many notebooks as possible before getting caught by Baldi!

Trivia[]

  • This is the first Baldi's Basics game to have virtual reality support announced for it.
    • However, the virtual reality support will take a lot of time to be implemented because of the developer's insufficient experience of VR.[7]
    • It is currently unknown what the VR version will look like.
  • This is the first Baldi's Basics game to have achievements revealed for it.
  • It was first revealed in the "Baldi's Basics 3 Year Anniversary Presentation!" video on March 31, 2021.
  • On November 23, 2021, the game had a Steam Store page, along with 5 screenshots.[8]
  • It was originally planned to come out on March 31, 2021, but was delayed due to mystman12 wanting to add some extra surprises.[9]
  • Due to a glitch, the itch.io page was broken for several days.[10] The page was finally back up on April 5, 2021.
  • In the development roadmap, this game would be released "shortly" after V0.3.3 of Baldi's Basics Plus comes out.[11] However, it actually took a long time to release this game after this version.[12]
  • Mirror Mode was shown in the presentation and trailers. It was introduced to one of the Fun Settings.
  • In the code files in Baldi's Basics Plus V0.3.3 and V0.3.4, there were script files starting with the name "Classic", such as "ClassicPartyManager" and "ClassicExit", along with some script files that were related to the Baldi's Basics Classic/Birthday Bash features such as "YCTP" and "Filename2". These were the files used for Baldi's Basics Classic Remastered running inside of Baldi's Basics Plus.
  • The SteamDB page updated the release date several times,[13] but mystman12 stated that these dates were placeholders.[14]
  • On July 9, 2022, mystman12 said that there was a long delay because he wanted to make to make the game feel like a finished product.[15]
  • On September 20, 2022, mystman12 posted a low-quality screenshot of this game with cheats featuring multiple Baldis.[16] In this screenshot, the inventory has 5 slots instead of 3 in the trailer.
  • Porting this game on consoles will not be likely, unlike Baldi's Basics Plus.[17]
  • Due to the game using the same framework as Baldi's Basics Plus, several of its assets are left in, even in areas the player can see in-game.
  • The game has Baldi's Basics Classic's speed and balance because it only features one level, which is fairly small.[18]
  • According to the interview with Mark and Veronica from Meeting Halfway YouTube channel, Classic Remastered will have a totally different story from Baldi's Basics Plus when the latter is finished.[19]
  • According to the TetraBitGaming's Baldi's Basics Classic Remastered Unused Content video, Baldi's Basics Classic Remastered would have the same title as Baldi's Basics Classic (Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning) and it would have a letter R on the version number to notify that it is a remastered version.[20] However, Valve did not accept the Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning title due to lack of consistency, so mystman12 changed the title to the current one.[21]

  7. "VR support unfortunately is going to go on the backburner. I have barely even messed around with VR dev and I'm *probably* underestimating how hard it will be.

  10. "Man, with the Baldi's Basics Classic Remastered page still down, I hope no one thinks that was like, an early April Fools joke or something. Rest assured, it's not! Once the issue is fixed I'll let everyone know. In the meantime, just know you're not missing out on much currently the page is pretty empty with text that covers what I discussed in the video. It's really just a placeholder you can follow to be notified of release." - mystman12. April 1, 2021. Twitter

I'm sure many of you have heard by now, but Baldi's Basics Classic Remastered did finally release on... October 21, 2022. "You won't have to wait long" was, as it turns out, a pretty inaccurate estimate." - Kickstarter update #41

  14. "No, the Steam release date is a placeholder, since I need to keep it 10 days ahead in order to make changes to it. That's why it's been updated a few times recently. Until I announce a date, nothing is official!" - mystman12. March 19, 2022. Twitter
  15. "One of the reasons it's taken so much longer to finish than expected is that it changed from being a quick little bonus game to something that I want to feel like a finished product. As a result I want to take my time with it. I want to use it as learning experience on how to finish and launch a completed game. I want to prepare promotional material ahead of time, and not be working on it hours before release! I don't want to feel like there's still stuff to do (Besides fixing some inevitable bugs, and porting the game to mobile and VR) once I release it. All that said, I'm in the home stretch now and as soon as I have a release date locked down I'll let you all know!" - mystman12. July 9, 2022. Twitter

  18. Q: "Will classic remastered have the speed boost plus has?" / A: "No, Classic Remastered will have the same speed and balance as the original version. The Plus speed boost wouldn't work as well in Classic due to the game only being one level, and a fairly small one at that." - Gmail (question), Gmail (response)
  19. "I will say this; I've made it very clear that Classic Remastered is entirely separated from Plus when Plus will be finished. Um, it's gonna be its own separate story and currently - if this audio has a connection now either - the early access isn't like canon to the Classic Remastered. It's totally... just, there is no story in the early access versions. But, I will say there may be some ideas that you see in Classic Remastered that are more fleshed out in Baldi's Basics Plus when it's finished. So like, Classic Remastered is kind of experimenting with those ideas I have and then Plus will be like flushing those out and figuring out like what I really liked and making the most of those aspects." - We Met the Creator of Baldi’s Basics! 33:30~34:14

"The title screen with "in Education and Learning" was something I was planning on using for a long time with the game launcher and version number (Versions would have been displayed as "R1.0", for "Remastered 1.0") signifying that this was the remastered version." - mystman12.
