Independent video game studio Basically Games today announced that mobile versions of the original Baldi’s Basics in Education and Learning game have been released on iOS and Android as Baldi’s Basics Classic. Fans of the game can now enjoy it on the go! The game is an exact port of the original, with added touch controls, and the Android version also includes controller support. Best of all, the game is completely free, just like on PC!
Now fans of the popular PC game can enjoy the same experience for free wherever they are.
“Fans have been asking for an official mobile release of the game for a long time. It’s been a side project of mine for a while and I’m so excited to finally be able to release it!” said Micah McGonigal, Developer at Basically Games. “One of my goals was to provide players on mobile the exact same experience as on PC, so I’ve worked hard to make sure the mobile version has as few changes as possible. Not everyone has a PC, so by bringing Baldi’s Basics Classic to mobile, everyone with a phone will be able to try it out for themselves!”
Baldi’s Basics Classic is a meta horror game that parodies edutainment tropes. The goal of the game is to collect seven notebooks, and then escape the school, but that's easier said than done! You'll need to learn all the ins-and-outs of the game to come up with a winning strategy and avoid being caught by Baldi. Learning how to use Baldi's friends to your advantage, wisely managing the items found scattered about, and memorizing the layout of Baldi's school are all keys to success!
The original version of the game was created in two weeks and released in early 2018 as an entry to the 2018 Meta Game Jam. It won second place in the event and has gone on to reach over 5 million total downloads on Itch.io. The reception of the game has been incredible, with the top 11 videos on YouTube being viewed collectively over 500 million times. Currently, an expanded, full version of the game is in development following a successful Kickstarter campaign in August 2018. It will expand upon the core concepts of the original while adding new features like randomly generated levels, random game altering events and field trip minigames, and is planned to release sometime in early 2020.
