A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Baldi's Basics - Full Game Early Demo

Ever since the Baldi's Basics Kickstarter was successfully funded, I've been working on a full version of the game. This demo offers a small slice of a couple of new features that will be in the full game,  random events and and special structures. This demo only includes one level, but in it you'll find some new structures, and you'll also get to experience the new random events that activate every few minutes! The full game will include the new features shown in this demo, as well as randomly generated levels, field trip mini-games, multiple levels of increasing difficulty, and more. Not to mention lots of new characters and items!

This game is still in development!

Remember, this demo is for a game that is still in development, which means that it will likely show the signs of something that is still a work-in-progress. Not all planned features are in the game yet, even some that were in the original game haven't been implemented yet, since I've been prioritizing other areas of development. So if you see something that seems unfinished, that's because it is! When the full game releases there will be much more polish than what you see now.

This game is still a horror game!

If you've never heard of Baldi's Basics before, it's important to know that this is not actual edutainment, but it is, in fact, a tongue-in-cheek horror game. It's family friendly, but still includes some things that could scare players. This demo is relatively light on horror-type content though, and the full game will have much more than what is seen here.

Why doesn't Gotta Sweep have a closet? Where's the You Can Think Pad? Why are all the faculty only rooms so empty?

If you have a question like this, the answer is simple: The game isn't finished yet! Like I said, there are still lots of things I haven't gotten around to adding yet. Right now I'm at the stage where I just program the game so that everything works, and I'll worry about adding the finer details closer to the end of the game's development.

Can I make mods of this demo?

I love seeing all the mods people make of the original game, but with this demo being for what will be a paid piece of software, I would prefer if any mods created for this were distributed without redistributing the game itself. What I mean is, any mods created for this should be shared by sharing the original files you created, with instructions that explain how users can install those files into their copy of the demo. This is something that will be absolutely necessary for mods of the full game when it releases.

Does this demo have a secret ending?

I'll save you all the trouble and confirm that this demo doesn't have a secret ending. The full game will have plenty of secrets though!

This isn't very scary. Is this still supposed to be a horror game?

This demo definitely doesn't have much focus on being creepy, mostly just on gameplay. In the full game, I plan on ensuring the game has more creepy elements to it, although I don't think it will ever be "scary". I'm going to go light on the jump scares (The Baldi jumpscare barely even counts as a jumpscare due to how predictable it is) and focus more and giving the game a creepy and unsettling atmosphere.

Will this demo be released for any mobile devices?

Nope, I have no plans to release this on mobile devices.

Have you pointed out that this demo is subject to change too many times?

Yes, but that's subject to change as well.

i play roblox my name is RoastedJorgeEmilio and i have this avatar

Add the button for close the Test Procedure

add dither effect in the all screen the gameplay :)


could you make it run chromebook? i cant really play it unless it gets a version for chromebook

Nice job mystman12!!!

Look how happy now Baldi is:

The Party:

The Jumpscare:

The Video:

If i click Don't run i can't play

I want to play ;-;

Click "more info" and then click  "run anyway".

Disable "Check For Programs And Browser Programs"

Don't run from Baldi. Just accept your fate. xD

I was playing and suddenly i died to baldi,i retried but the elevator only opened for a split second then closed again,i was stuck.Just a bug for you.

Because I'm not above throwing my hat in the self promo ring.
Beat this Demo, feel like it's actually a bit easier than the original.

In the mechanic of principal of the thing after breaking the rules hear the hello neighbor sound "close" and end audio after down to 0 detention time ( Audio here: 


Here's my last video on this game until the full game comes out. Just wanted to say that the leakage is a bit of a waste because the leakage only slows down the player and should slow down everyone else. I am guessing the fog disrupts baldi's and the principle's vision of where I am? I do like the clock feature of putting a timer on the random events. The conveyor... belt? (Is that what it's called?) The conveyor belt doesn't slow down Baldi one bit and it should slow him down just a bit but not too much.

Here's my video anyway: 

i look in file i saw the forest tree and bus with loading is not used

Was really fun, love the quirkiness of it. Did make me panic a few times!

It's alright I have APC anyway it's just gonna lag thank you though

I love all the new mechanics and random events added to this game! As difficult as it is, it's extremely fun! Here's my playthrough:

Just pointing out fun things about the game and semieviewing it in this comment, mumbling. I did beat it though :)

Wow, that was nice. I don't think the demo introduced a lot of stuff to the game, doors, random events. I expected better, but i am not complaining it's alright, since everything is "SuBjEcTeD tO cHaNgE"! I think that with the amount of popularity and money mystman12 gathered, he will make a great steam-worthy game which i would enjoy to the fullest. I believe in you! :) I enjoyed how principal of the thing isn't as much RNG as it previously was, now it's about reaction, you have to react fastly in 100+ miliseconds or something, and he will not catch you.errer

I really love how hillarious is it that most (if not) of the youtubers who have made a video on this game only talked about the apple in the title and the thumbnail. Like they don't notice anything about the game, just talk about apples. Just pointing that out. 

All thumbnails go like this :


I was really sad about you not solving math problems since math is my favorite part in this game, now it's not about education :( Sadly.

Not a lot of people have beaten this since it's recent. From what i gathered, 3 people have beaten it before me. One was the guy from the comment, which wasn't confirmed. I have actually beaten the game which took me a lot of time. Today, i spend literally over 10 hours. Quite a significant number, but it literally was over that number. I have played it for 2 or 3 days. While PhuCatGeek, as always did it in not a lot of attempts, in one take.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If you want any help with how to beat the game, message me or contact me on youtube, i will try to explain to you.

I really enjoyed the Basically Games logo btw, looks cool. I love how challenging this game is, and how you have to be extremely patient to beat this. It's harder than the classic Baldi in my opinion, since it's recent there aren't a lot of strategies, as there are for the classic baldi. Random events were cool, wish more of them.

Basically, this demo would be cool if you haven't played or seen baldi before. If you did, it wouldn't seem that good to you. I liked it.

By the way, in the ending, Baldi's face becomes spoopy, i really loved how it looks. Check it out.

I took this screenshot from youtube, since my recording for the game got corrupted. Yes, i recorded in .mp4 so whatever. I will activate my windows.

This strongly remidns me (and it might have been copied) of the Aooni doll, just check it out.

Ok, i have a lot of hopes for this game. Still i could expect better, but ok.

Just a heads up he said the thinkpad will return, he just hasn't added it back yet. You will get your math :)


Is there going to be an android version just ask in they don't have to be

Will the Baldi full game be on Android? The annser is:  

Nope I have no plans to release this on mobile devices 

Pls don't be sad or mad ok but maybe I will make a fake mobile version ok but maybe I will maybe I wont

He said the "demo" will not be on mobile


While your waiting for it you could try the full version of Baldimore's Highschool for free on Android 👍

Finally got around to uploading my video on this. Lots of fun even though I got frustrated at times haha

Did you know that there is actually a game called "Alex's basics in biology and zoology"?

Wow you're right, just googled it lmao

Fun times

Oh hey Neco, Good luck beating this game if you decide to play it again.

I just may try it again! Got well-received very quickly.


Tell me how does it? Perhaps, screenshot it?

Simply starts the download, gets to about 6MB, then says: "download forbidden".

Are you downloading from a browser or the itch.io client? 

I'm downloading it from this website.

When attempting to run while in Playtime's jumprope minigame, your stamina still decreases. Same effect as when trying to walk away; your stamina doesn't increase nor decrease.

Also, the conveyer belt nor the flooding, leaking random event or whatever it's called doesn't slow down any of the characters except the player.

in baldi's voice: this is perfect!

in baldi's voice: i cant believe this day would come!
