Baldi's Basics Plus is an edutainment parody horror game for PC, Mac and Linux, with console ports planned for the future. It is an expanded version of the game Baldi's Basics Classic that adds things like new characters, randomly generated levels, field trips, and challenges.


Revisional Differences
This game is STILL not what it seems!

Unused Sprites


Looking through the game files, there is a texture called AreaText.png. The use for it is unknown.


Calibration Sprites

Some sprites are actually calibration images.

Calibration Value Marker

A downward arrow.


Unused Sounds


This sound effect was used in the public demo when you find all 8 notebooks. This is never used in the current version of Baldi's Basics Plus.


This was used for the public demo when you complete all the levels it had to offer. It may be a leftover.


All of the sound clips of Baldi saying a number from Baldi's Basics Classic combined. It was initially used for when Baldi started to chase the player until a later update, where an actual countdown was added.


This sound clip plays in the title screen for the public demo of the game. It may be a leftover.


This sound clip should play when hovering over the expel hammer in Johnny's Store. This hammer has not been implemented yet, which explains why this isn't used.


This sound clip was played when It's a Bully took all of your sticks during the camping minigame. After the field trips got revamped in version 3.0, this was left unused.


This sound clip is a direct reference to an unused voice clip found in the files of Sonic's Schoolhouse. It's mystman12 saying "Elephant hit". This was also used in the Testroom Easter egg in Baldi's Basics Classic.


This sound clip is Leftover from Baldi's Basics Classic from the scrapped "Pencil Boy" character.

Unused Developer Text

In the game's main folder, "BALDI_Data/StreamingAssets", there are public files called "Subtitles_En" and "Subtitles_Fr". These files are used to modify the main menu texts, item names and subtitles in-game. Both of these files include a "number" test, from 0-9, followed after that by "Elephant Hit." These test lines can be also found in "Subtitles_Fr", but in French. "Elephant Hit" is another direct reference to the unused Sonic's Schoolhouse voice clip.

Unused Code

Unused CRT Effect

Looking through the files, there are scripts called "BaseCRTEffect" and "CRTEffect". There are multiple mentions in code about a CRT Effect, although it is never used. It may be implemented later in the game.


using System;
using UnityEngine;

// Token: 0x020001AA RID: 426
[AddComponentMenu("Image Effects/CRT/Ultimate CRT")]
public class CRTEffect : BaseCRTEffect
	// Token: 0x06000994 RID: 2452 RVA: 0x00008241 File Offset: 0x00006441
	private void OnPreCull()

	// Token: 0x06000995 RID: 2453 RVA: 0x00008249 File Offset: 0x00006449
	private void OnRenderImage(RenderTexture src, RenderTexture dest)
		base.ProcessEffect(src, dest);

Unused Textures

To do:
See if there are any more leftovers from previous versions of the game.

Old Math Machine Design

This is the old design for the Math Machine. An improved design became used in V0.2.


Old Elevator Design

This placeholder graphic for the elevator was replaced with a real texture in V0.2.


Old Test Design

The Test used to have a design that contained no arms, which was seen in a trailer. In the final game, he has arms.

Unused Sad Farm Baldi Animation

This animation of Baldi... bending over to tie his shoes should play after losing the farming minigame, but it does not.


Unused Playtime Description

This was only used in the first version of the early demo.



To do:
If it's only in a demo, might be a better fit for a prerelease or proto page.

Look how sad you made him...

The Kickstarter exclusive demo for the game contains an anti-piracy method. If a non-backer or a backer who pledged less than $30 attempts to play the demo, this screen, showing an upset Baldi in his office, will come up along with some unsettling music. This is similar to the anti-piracy method Donkey Kong Country 2 and 3 used, and it may be a reference, as developer mystman12 is a Donkey Kong fan. Another anti-piracy method is also present; while playing, Baldi becomes impossibly quick after collecting only two notebooks, Gotta Sweep has no cooldown between sweeping times, there are 2 Principal of the Things (Principals of the Thing?), and the game will crash randomly. For some reason, however, these anti-piracy methods seem to be absent from the current Early Access build of the game.
