Baldi’s Basics: The REAL TRUTH | Baldi’s Basics in Education and Learning


I’m going to ask you an important question. A question so important that if you don’t
answer it will leave you staring into the abyss unable to shake the the feeling that
your life is meaningless. Are you ready? What do Baldi and this guy with a bag over
his head have in common? There you go that’s the question! And I’m gonna answer it by the end of this
video. Because sometimes a game takes over the internet
in a way it was never supposed to. Often times I look at what’s popular and
I wonder what sick and twisted god would create a universe where a self-consciously terrible
game would skyrocket from absolutely nothing to genuine trend. Baldi’s Basics in Education and Learning
is one of those games…and I say all of this as someone who appreciates this title Alright…appreciates is a strong word. I mean…a game isn’t worth playing unless
it makes you rage right? Right? But really there’s a reason this janky parody
of 1990s edutainment games is now one of the most trending things on YouTube. The look and feel of Baldi’s Basics is objectively
terrible but somehow mystman12 (it’s creator) was able to turn that terribleness into HORROR. Like…SCARY horror. If playtime (that creepy little girl) doesn’t
freak you out then you should see a psychologist because clearly your emotions aren’t working
correctly. I mean, me and her are best friends …something
you’d know if you watched our twitch streams. Every weekday at 3pm PST. Anyway Grant already made a Story You Never
Knew on this bad boy and in it he covered a lot of interesting things including the
psychology of characters like Gotta Sweep and Playtime and also somehow managed to shoe-horn
in a heartfelt message about our education system. The video was a little all over the place
but I’ll be damned if it wasn’t interesting and full of butt jokes! You should check it out if you haven’t already
but NOT YET BECAUSE I’M NOT DONE TALKING. OK? Okay. You’re probably wondering what more can
possibly be said about this game…at least until the update comes out. Yeah there’s an update coming out with a
new character, new items, and more balanced game mechanics. That’s for another video though. Remember, the name of this show is the REAL
Truth. And (at least as far as this episode is concerned)
that means we’re gonna be talking about something REAL. No not our education system GRANT ALREADY
DID THAT. We’re gonna go into Baldi’s Basics itself…how
it was created. WHY it was created, and ultimately what it
means for you. Don’t you wanna know how to make the next
trending video game so you can retire before age 30 and spend your life in pursuit of worldly
pleasures instead of having to work or something dumb like that? Of course you do! So bite down on something sturdy, find a protruding
vein and get ready for a hardcore injection of THE TRUTH. THE REAL TRUTH. YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME Alright enough goofing around we’re wasting
time. We gotta get to the point already! So let’s do it. There’s a lot we can learn from Baldi and
we’re about to get into it. Get into it real good. So good. Man I can’t wait! …To get into it. Alright I’m just messing with you people
who always comment that it takes us three minutes to start talking about the point of
the video. Because who cares about giving things context
right? Anyway I’m done for real this time LET’S
DO IT. Baldis Basics was created by mystman12 for
the Meta Game Jam. What’s the Meta Game Jam? It’s an event that took place this year
from March 17th to the 31st where small teams of up to four people were challenged to make
a “meta” video game in this short, two week period. So yes, Baldi’s Basics was made in two weeks
and yes that does explain a lot. A whole lot. And yet…this concept that forced mystman
to squeeze out a game in basically no time at all is the whole point of this video! Really it is! But just so we have some context, let’s
talk more about this Game Jam. The goal of this cool little competition was
to make a game about games. To make a game which commented on, deconstructed,
parodied, or satirized game design, game mechanics or game culture. For instance, as we know Baldi’s Basics
is a parody of crappy 90s edutainment titles…specifically Sonic’s Schoolhouse if you people in the
comments are to be trusted. The resemblance is uncanny so I believe you
guys don’t worry. Also it says on Baldi’s Basics download
page. Probably should have led with that. Whatever. In addition to those guidelines there were
some loose rules about how the voting process worked and that shorter “experiences”
were preferred. Besides that, you had two weeks to make a
game about games so BAM GET TO IT SON. And get to it mystman did. Oh did he. And so we get to the lesson behind this video. This game was made in two weeks. It has some kinks, some hiccups, some annoying
balancing issues and overall it looks like poop. And yet…this game is done! It’s a finished product that’s playable,
entertaining, and even exploits its own jankiness for an experience that is truly horrifying. It’s kind of ingenious actually. You could say that having a two week deadline
was the best thing to ever happen to mystman. Having to rush the development process left
no time for complicated character models, a complicated story, and it certainly left
no time for overthinking. This dude went all “plain and simple”
on our booties. I mean, GEEZ, LOOK AT THE BROOM FOR GOODNESS
SAKES! LOOK AT THE WHITE ARTIFACTS AROUND IT! It pisses me off just looking at it…it’s
killing me! HAS THIS GUY NEVER HEARD OF THE MAGIC WAND
IN PHOTOSHOP. GIVE ME 30 SECONDS WITH THAT IMAGE AND I’LL
MAKE IT SHIPSHAPE. To go from nothing to finished product in
half a month means you’ve gotta have your priorities straight, and have his priorities
straight mystman did… A mistake that most novice game developers
make is that they try too hard to make everything perfect. Their passion bleeds from every pore and so
why not put as many hours and as much energy into every aspect of your game as possible? Why not make everything perfect? That’ll make you fulfilled and increase
your chances of success right? WRONG. IT’LL SLOW YOU DOWN AND MAKE WHATEVER IT
IS YOU’RE WORKING ON SUCK. Indeed if you’ve watched as much Extra Credits
as I have, you’ll know the best strategy for developing any video game is to first
make something playable and then you can fill in the details from there. Whether mystman knew this or not I have no
idea, but what I do know is that having such a tight deadline means he HAD to have a playable
game done before anything TOO complicated was done. So if there’s any real life lessons to learn
from Baldi its that overthinking will keep you from doing something that might take the
world by storm. Finish what you started and you can always
fill in the details from there. Don’t get hung up on the details…have
a plan, make sure each individual piece works, then tie them all together into the thing
you want to make. It really is that simple. How do you think we make videos on this channel
with such tight turnarounds? We have an idea what what we want to do, we
write the rough draft of the script…THEN we touch it up a bit. Maybe add some stupid butt jokes. From there we record the voice over or live
action, I flail around a little bit in front of a camera, and we put editing over it. If anything needs to be changed or improved,
we’ll do a re-record or change up some editing. We never stress on making each piece perfect,
we push forward to make something that “works” and then fill in the details from there. This is an oversimplification, and as you
get better at whatever is you do, you can take the time to make each piece “perfect”
because you’ll know what you have time for and what you don’t…you’ll know how long
this takes and how long that takes and you’ll know how it’ll all fit together…but if
you’re a noob…whether you’re a nooby game dev, YouTuber, Twitch streamer, author
or whatever…don’t be afraid to “finish” what you started before you make it perfect. Complaining that you’re not satisfied with
what you’ve created is just another excuse not to finish what you started. Just look at Baldi’s Basics! It sucks! But it’s also done and now mystman is free
to update it at his leisure. Sure it’s poopiness is part of the appeal,
but even if it wasn’t…these poopy character models could be modified and slapped back
into the game, textures could be improved, game mechanics could be tweaked…whatever! No matter what it is your working on, having
a rough draft…a proof of concept that’s done takes the weight off your shoulders and
makes you less likely to procrastinate. It really does. Magical things happen when you just shut up
and do it. Don’t get lost in your own head, don’t
worry about what others will think, just follow the immortal words of Shia Lebouf that I will
now quote. DO IT. JUST. DO IT. Don’t let your dreams be dreams. And that’s the truth. The REAL TRUTH! So that’s what I think of Baldi. He’s a man who knows the secret to success. Gary Vaynerchuk watch out! Anyway If you made it this far I’m sure
you liked the video. If you didn’t like it then you’re some
kind of masochist or something and that’s fine but this next sentence is for those who
like what we put out on this channel. You hear that??? That’s the bell! If you liked this video (or our videos in
general) hit it down below so you get a notification when we post a video. It’ll change your life. And also don’t forget I’m streaming at

that’s a fact. This video will be posted about an hour before
our stream so it’s entirely possible we’re streaming RIGHT NOW! DON’T MISS IT! I’ll be there. And I hope to see you there. Besides that, I’m done for today. Hit that bell, check out our twitch and…tootles!

  63. Justbiz biz says:

    Sure, it would be nice if they updated graphics, but it wont look like a 90's game. No offense, just letting u know.

  64. Diyanira TBM-Gaming says:

    It really sounds like the video was slowed down slightly to reach that 10 minute mark, the sound is really strange.
    At 5:49, good use of irony with the absolutely terrible keying, look into Keylight 1.2 and Refine soft matte. And no, don't use magic wand unless you don't care about edge fidelity.

  65. RandomAnimeGamer ランダムオタクゲーマー says:

    While that advice from Extra Credits is good, majority of their advice isn't even close to good advice.
