Mystman12 in real life.

Micah McGonigal, mainly known as Mystman12 and MM12 is the creator and only developer of Baldi's Basics In Education & Learning.


Mystman12 is from Virginia, USA. Nothing much is actually known about his personal life at the time, except that he has an older brother.

He created Baldi's Basics as the part of the annual Meta-Game Jam, which ended up taking 2nd place in the process. Despite being close to first, Mystman12's game was an instant hit, with YouTubers such as PewDiePie , Jacksepticeye , and Markiplier who began playing the game.

It is rumored that the game was also rather infamous for being a difficult game, which apparently took days or even weeks for someone to 'first' win the game.
