Hello everyone, I hope you're all doing well!
I'm happy to announce that the first set of digital goodies is now available for download! Codes are being sent out now through BackerKit, so check your email! If you aren't receiving an email, you can use your survey link to view all your available downloads. If you still can't find your code, make sure you have completed your survey so that I can lock your order in, as you won't receive any codes until it's locked. Follow the instructions included with your code and you'll be able to download the currently available digital goodies through Itch.io.
Currently, the digital goodies include:
- Two desktop backgrounds, one featuring the game's title artwork, and one featuring a never before seen render of the finished elevator model (Not even in the game yet)!
- The 3 music tracks from the original game, available as MP3s and MIDIs
- The classic You Can Think Pad model
- The fake website used in the Kickstarter video
There will be a lot more to come as the game develops, including more desktop backgrounds as I create more renders, more music tracks as the soundtrack gets bigger, and of course some other stuff like the digital manual when the game is nearing completion.
I know it's not much at the moment, but I hope you all enjoy it! I'll be sure to post updates here whenever I make more items available.
To anyone who's interested in buying the digital goodies, I'll make them available for anyone to purchase once there's a bit more content included, so keep an eye out for when I announce that!
Status Update #14 - I guess status updates are kind of pointless now :P

Hello everyone! First off I just want to say a huge thank you to all the great feedback I've received for Baldi's Basics Plus! Lots of positive and constructive feedback which has already helped me make some great improvements to the game. I'm super excited for what's to come, and I hope all of you are too! Oh, also I released version 0.1.2 last Friday, so make sure you download that if you haven't!
With that said, time for another status update... Sort of.
I sat down to start writing this status update, but I quickly realized that at this point that would be kind of pointless. The purpose of status updates was to let you all know how the game was coming along, but now that it's out, there isn't really any point in me telling you what's going on when I can just release updates and let you all experience the new stuff for yourselves! All the new stuff that I would have talked about in this status update for example, like challenge maps, the new lighting system, etc., has already been released.
With this in mind, there probably won't be any more status updates. I'll continue to discuss game updates and upcoming features of course, but I'll probably begin doing it primarily via devlogs on Steam, Itch.io, and Game Jolt. I'll continue announcing major updates here though just so you all are kept up-to-date.
Of course, I'll still continue to post updates regarding Kickstarter stuff as necessary, such as the big box edition and the digital goodies, and I guess now is as good a time as any to go over the details on those!
As I mentioned in the last update, the digital goodies will release soon, and will grow with the game. What I mean by this is that there won't be a ton of stuff available at first, but as the game gets more content I'll add more stuff to the digital goodies as well. It will start with a desktop background or two, a few MIDI files, and maybe a couple other random things. As I'm able though, I'll add a lot more to it. More desktop backgrounds, more MIDIs/MP3s, more random things, etc. I definitely want to make sure the digital goodies end up worthwhile to those who paid extra for them, even if it does take a bit longer than I would have liked. In particular, the digital manual likely won't be available until the game is out of or about to leave early access.
Big Box Edition
I said this before in a few places, but I want to make this clear: I probably will not be able to get big boxes made and shipped out until after the game is finished and out of early access. I want to make sure that what is burned onto the CDs is as close to the final product as possible, and I also want the big box artwork and manual to properly reflect the final version of the game. I'm not sure when the game will be finished, but no matter how long it takes I'll make sure the wait for the big box is worth it. If anyone is concerned with how long things are taking for the big box version to ship out though, I'll be happy to refund and cancel your pre-order/pledge if you want. Just know that while I do plan on making the standard big boxes available for pre-order again once I'm close to producing them, the limited edition will never be sold ever again.
Well, that's about it for now I think. Thanks again everyone! I'm not sure when I'll post an update here next, but I do want to post an update to the game's devlog pages soon regarding my plans for the rest of the game's development cycle. Not sure when that will be, so keep an eye out for it!

It's finally released!
I'm super excited that you all can finally play the game! Of course, there's still a lot of work left for me to do to make this game as good as possible, but I'm definitely happy to have reached this milestone. I couldn't have done it without all your help, so once again, thank you all so much!
All codes should have been sent out by now. If you were supposed to get a code, but can't find it, please message me and I'll work it out. Remember, please check your spam folder! Also, if you didn't get an email specifically about the code, you can use your survey link to find your code as well. Finally, if you haven't filled out your survey, you won't be able to get your code until you do. I can't give you a code if you haven't selected the platform you want it on in your survey yet!
To those of you who did not back a tier to receive a download of the game, here are the store links:
Game Jolt: https://gamejolt.com/games/baldis-basics-plus/481026
The digital goodies will be coming soon! I've been so busy working on the game I haven't had time to put anything together yet. The digital goodies will launch with a handful of fun things, and continue to grow along with the game.
The next status update
The next status update will *also* be coming soon, but of course, everything I'd cover can now be experienced for yourself!
That's it for now, just wanted to post a small update celebrating the game's launch! Thanks again everyone!
To those who pre-ordered through BackerKit - I'm charging cards soon, and codes will be sent out on June 12!

Hello, this message is specifically for those who pre-ordered Baldi's Basics Plus through BackerKit. If you backed the Kickstarter during the initial campaign in August 2018, you have already paid for your pledge and can ignore this update.
I'm posting this update just to let you all know that I will be charging cards soon! Anyone who pre-ordered the game with a debit or credit card has not actually paid yet. If you pre-ordered with PayPal, then you have already paid and you won't receive any more charges.
Once I charge cards, you'll receive an email confirming if the charge was successful or not. If not, you'll be able to update your payment information.
Everyone who's payment is successful and who pre-ordered a digital download of Baldi's Basics Plus will receive a download code for the game on June 12 when the early access begins. Digital goodies will be released shortly after that, and anyone who pre-ordered those will receive a download code for them at that time. The big box is still a ways off, and I'll post an update specifically about those in the coming weeks.
If you have any questions, please email me at the address found here: https://www.basicallygames.com/contact.html That is the easiest way to contact me. Please don't use BackerKit's support unless you have a question specifically about BackerKit. I have to say that as much as I appreciate their service, their support is less than stellar in my experience. In particular, over the past few months I have a had a few angry emails from people who were not getting any proper answers or help from BackerKit, and for some reason BackerKit didn't forward their emails to me until they got angry. If you've been struggling with BackerKit's customer service at all, please just email me directly and I'll try my best to help.
Also, I'll be posting the status update I promised last month shortly, sorry for the small delay on that.
Thank you all for your support!
Locking survey answers soon!
