Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning, commonly known as Baldi, is a horror-comedy educational game that gained popularity on the internet in 2018. The game features a character named Baldi, who is a strict math teacher trying to teach his students basic math skills.
The gameplay revolves around the player taking on the role of a student who is trying to collect seven notebooks hidden in various locations throughout the school while avoiding Baldi, who chases the player down with a ruler in hand. Each notebook contains math problems that the player must solve to progress through the game.
However, the game is not just about solving math problems, as the player must also avoid other characters and obstacles throughout the school. The player can collect items such as energy drinks and scissors to help them on their journey, but they must use these resources wisely, as they are limited.
Baldi's Basics is known for its unpredictable gameplay and jump scares, which have made it a popular game for horror enthusiasts. The game's graphics and sound effects are intentionally simplistic, adding to the game's overall charm and unique style.
