The pause menu just shows the white non-pixelated text with a punctuation error and a misspelled word ("PASUED" instead of "PAUSED" and "IT"S" instead of "IT'S"). Whether this is intentional or not is unknown.

Other than pausing the game, the menu lacks other options and will be unpaused when pressing ESC again.

  • Between versions 1.3 to 1.3.2, Baldi's heads keep animating themselves. Now in V1.4 and so on, they only animate when the mouse cursor is placed on them in PC, holding on them with a finger and slide the finger across the screen on mobile versions.
