Baldi's Basics, the first and only official release of the horror edutainment parody game. You can't take this game at face value.
Fundamentals of Education and Learning by Baldi, a 2018 parody survival horror game made by American independent developer Micah McGonigal, is also known as Baldi's Basics and Baldi's Basics Classic. The game parodies educational video games from the 1990s by using poor visuals and concepts that are comparable to those of Sonic's Schoolhouse, IM Meen, and 3D Dinosaur Adventure. For Microsoft Windows and macOS, Baldi's Basics was originally made available as a beta version on March 31, 2018. On June 12, 2020, Baldi's Basics Plus, the full version of this game including its primary gameplay and extra features, was made available for early access.
The main character's buddy forgot seven notebooks at the neighborhood school but couldn't go collect them since he was running late and "rehearsing," so he had to ask the protagonist to go get them for him. When the player first arrives, he meets an instructor by the name of Baldi, who will provide him with three basic arithmetic questions every time he discovers a notebook. If the player can successfully complete all of these tests, he will get a prize. Baldi is also a highly irritable character, and after giving the player a task to solve, the instructor will start pursuing them if they provide the incorrect solution. The main character must continue looking for every other notepad while evading other classmates and numerous barriers. If the player choose to provide incorrect answers to every question, they will have to experience an alternative ending that features a warped version of Baldi and another secret character that forces them to destroy the game before it automatically ends.
