Notebook Counter

The notebook counter in Baldi's Basics Full Game Early Demo.

The item counter is a part of the HUD for Baldi's Basics Plus, located at the top left side of the screen for the Player's perspective.


Main Gameplay


The item counter HUD (top left.)

In Hide-and-Seek or Story Mode, the counter is used for collecting notebooks during the main gameplay. The Player's mission is to explore the Schoolhouse or the Super Schoolhouse depending on the games, and collect all the notebooks before managing to escape:
Floors Number of notebooks
Floor 1 3 to 5 notebooks
Floor 2 6 or 7 notebooks
Floor 3 9 notebooks
Challenges or games Number of notebooks
Baldi's Basics Classic, Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash, Stealthy and Grapple Challenge 7 notebooks
Full Game Early Demo 8 notebooks
Speedy Challenge 25 notebooks

In Endless Mode, the item counter goes infinite.

Field Trips

A different item counter will display in field trips. In the camping field trip, the version of this counter HUD is used for collecting firewood in an unlimited number, although the more the Player collects, the slower they get due to carrying a huge amount of firewood until dropping them on the ground or putting them in the campfire for points.

In the Field Trip demo: Camping, the item counter is white instead of black, uses a different font, and has the word "Sticks" instead of "Logs"

    The older version of the item counter seen in the first version of the classic edition.

    In Baldi's Basics Classic, the item counter is changed a few times through update versions:
    • Before V1.3, the early version of the notebook counter lacks the "Notebooks" text.
    • Before V1.4, the text of the counter seems thicker and less pixelated.
    • In some images in the V1.4 update post, the notebook counter has different font styles, but they are not implemented into the game.[1]

    The old counter HUD in the Field Trip demo: Camping

    In the earliest version of the Field Trip demo: Camping, the size of the firewood counter was much smaller than the current version. Same goes for the points and timer.
  • In Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash, it is possible to extend the maximum counter of notebooks to 9/9. If the slash (/) is removed, then it becomes the number 99 seen numerous times in the game.
