“I’m so excited to be so close to releasing Baldi’s Basics Plus. Having worked on the game for as long as I have. I’m glad I’ll finally get to see people’s response to the game so far” said Micah McGonigal, Developer at Basically Games. “Of course, as this is an early access title. There’s still a lot of work to be done before launch. But there’s also a lot of fun to be had in the game already. Since the feedback from players will help the game become better than I could possibly make it on my own!”
Baldi’s Basics Plus Early Access Trailer (Linux, Mac, Windows PC)
Baldi’s Basics Plus is a survival horror roguelite. One that also parodies cheap 90’s edutainment. While never taking itself too seriously. To beat the game’s main mode. Players will have to complete a series of increasingly challenging randomly generated levels. They’ll be chased by Baldi. So you have to find a variety of useful items. Meet many strange characters, experience crazy game altering random events.
Go on field trips to win items. And as you get closer to the end. You then discover that this game is not quite what it seems. Run out of lives, and you’ll have to start from the beginning. There are also other game modes too. Including a score chasing endless mode and a challenge mode. Which puts players in crazy scenarios that would never be found in the main mode. With multiple ways to play and randomly generated levels. This means Baldi’s Basics Plus offers near infinite replayability!
