Detected topic(s): Secret Sprites...Again



seriously, pls read this if you aren't a longtime fan or haven't read it already.
in fact, tl;dr: aewvs is long, has some bugs, needs some dedication (mix up gamers is doing multiple 5 hour streams on youtube but instant major spoilers so don't even visit the channel until you're truly ready), needs some creativity, makes you very good at maths if you're dedicated, has tons of secrets and lore, has multiple levels and is anything but child-friendly in both aspects. also check out the christmas curse dlc and the discord server. the server would explain a lot if you have questions. but even more spoilers...if you're not careful, i mean. i'm pretty sure there are many but the founder doesn't seem to think so.

Thank you for visiting this game. This message is intended for people that are new to Advanced Education with Viktor Strobovski; specifically, people that have had past experience with Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning (or even Advanced Education with Viktor Strobovski itself, but an older version). It is meant to provide information about what to expect from playing the game. You're welcome mrdrnose.

So, what's different about AEWVS compared with BBIEAL?

At first glance, it just looks like a fan remake of BBIEAL and it's concept: there's a math teacher, there are notebooks, there's a detention/punishment room, there's a janitor, soda is good, chocolate is good, et cetera. A fangame, if you will. The main "difference" is that there are more mechanics, more school rules, more notebooks, more violence and generally just many more things to make the education "advanced". If you've watched any of the big YouTubers play some of the very first versions of the game, you'll know that it really was one.

That's the problem, too. AEWVS is over a year old, but since it stood out, it gained attention too early. It didn't seem to be much other than just another fangame to be tossed back, but it's not anymore. It still starts roughly the same way as BBIEAL, but it starts following a much different and longer story, with more levels, more subjects and a lot more branched-out lore-related deep secrets to find, and starts becoming - and even does become - something one of it's own.

And since I need to address this...YES, IT IS ACTUALLY OFFICIALLY A FANGAME, BY DEFINITION. But you know what? That doesn't matter. At all. Don't judge AEWVS solely as a fangame of BBIEAL, the nostalgic edutainment horror parody that got over a million downloads and it's own Steam version in the works. AEWVS doesn't even have that atmosphere in general. It is definitely worth playing (or replaying, if you don't have the latest version), regardless of whether you've played BBIEAL already or not, though there are some things certain people have to watch out for, which will be detailed just in the next section.

What are some things I should be aware of when I start playing AEWVS?

Firstly, unlike BBIEAL, it's not a "clean" game. It's pretty messy, actually. Here's Viktor's scrapped warning about AEWVS:

"Hello. Thank you for playing this game. But I should to warn you before you click play button: game contents loud noises, fast brightening lights, violence, swearing, offensive language, weird speech, weird English, crooked Photoshop, high-poly super mega HD graphics, and spooky moments. So, I warn you. Click "PLAY" button, and let's studying together, because knowledge is power."

Basically, the main thing to be aware of is that the game is intended for mature audiences. Don't get me wrong, 10 year olds probably play this, and personally I think that's fine enough.  But something that's unlisted to be aware of is the, um, sexual references. I didn't know how else to say it, but there are quite a few moderate sexual references throughout the game. Another unlisted thing you should probably know is that parts of the game are connected with satanism. So if you're a Christian like the person that created BBIEAL, you should know to prepare for satanic content and stuff. To be honest, I don't even understand the views of religious people but whatever. Oh and it has memes.

Content warnings out of the way, the game is intended for highly dedicated, creative and strategic players that are okay with lots of trial and error and always try new things, and are also good at analysing and considering hints. Plus, if you're not already a natural at quick, repetitive problem-solving already, the game will make you one. The game also has quite a bit of RNG, so please take that into consideration. Overall, the game really is advanced education,  letting aside the fact that it doesn't fully teach students about subjects (in fact the curriculum is rather shallow).

The game also gets updated regularly, so always come back and check for more updates. (If you've played AEWVS before, but at a much older version, try to see everything in a new light with a fresh perspective. A lot of things that may not have made any sense in an old version will work or make sense in a new one.) Yes, the development is slowing down, but we really are trying to encourage him to keep building on the levels. It might have even come to a halt had I not suggested making a Discord server to bring the community's remnants back together, so you should probably join that. Be careful though, because since it's a realtime general community chat room with new posts on the regular, people have started to become a lot more open and be weirdos. (I said that before by the way, but I said something else "deterring.")  Basically, be ready for literally anything, OK?

That's all you need to know! If you haven't noticed yet, they also have a Christmas Curse DLC, so go check that out. Also if you've seen the wiki about it, please help moderate it again so we can get back mrdrnose's trust on it. (Only canon content in articles please!) The comments will now be displayed below. If there's any above this one, this post will usually (hopefully always) be deleted and reposted at the top. (I'm getting there.) Bye!

SPOILER ALERT: You know the drill, if you've never come across a fork before in AEWVS (the ones in Christmas Curse don't count) and want to keep the element of surprise flowing, get lost...

(NOTE: Do anything but get lost even if you want to figure things out on your own in AEWVS. You'll really have to know where you are and what you're doing, lol. But back to this.)

(Don't scroll down until you log in, so the post is collapsed. Unless you don't really care.)

I swear, you'd better forget. Don't ruin the experience for yourself, please.

So anyway, I thought I may as well show you what exactly goes into all the sprites... (Don't worry, I'll probably do another one without the spoilers.)

Yep. This is how I measure stuff. Every time. Tiles are out of proportion though. So anyway, here's the guardian abomination, made all-encompassing emoji meme abused and spammed in Discord by MrDrNose even outside spoilers channels: Antibreather!

It looks a bit out of proportion, but that'll be sorted later. And with that, the AEWVS sprite character roster is almost complete! :D

So, we have...let's see. Doggos, the Priest, which appears in literally a split second and can't give you the achievement of insanity death anymore because of MrDrNose's change, Smile Wolf, the Gingerbread-Men, the Followers, and the Watcher. Who I'll stick with the old design anyway until it gets an official change, because who cares. (checks wiki) Oh yeah and Gregory. No. Anyway, we only have 7 left--wait, what? That's a bit more than I expected, but whatever, it's still quite a bit less than 15. Once those are done, we'll be all finished! Yay. Then I'll do the BBIEAL characters next. I have plans. Maybe. I was never trained to have schedules. So yeah! Stay tuned for more stupid summoning rituals!

Oh well, question answered. Yes, Alice does, in fact, have human hands. *shudder*


Alice is human, she have human hands


But the question is, does she have 4 human arms, or 2 human arms?

All I did was check his Twitter

(be careful)

Anyway, now that I think about it, she only, in fact, has two.

She has 2 human arms, the other two aren't hers. They are Tiara's arms.

Oh, so Tiara isn't natural to her!

It's like there's spoilers for content that isn't even included in the game yet, but whatever, we're learning.


There's Something I have to show you what i made for you! :)

Yo, if you want me to see stuff then go to discord, because i visit itchio once per month

And your Erie is cute, even if he looks on cartoon porn(◍‒ᴗ‒◍)  nice work πŸ‘Œ

Smol Erie is so cute ^^


Hello! I am tunamood and I've been playing Advanced Education with Viktor Strobovski for around a year now.. I've just never commented until today. I'll start commenting and sending gameplay clips/screenshots here more often. Nice to meet you all!

Me and other random players are here, community's at Discord.

Today's been quite a day. Not only did I rank first for the third time in MK Tour, but I managed to draw one of the guardian abominations in the span of a single session of going out, and in less time than it takes for my computer's battery to run out. It's not the one that always gets memed by MrDrNose on Discord (you know the one), but I'm about to get to that one. So anyway, SPOILER ALERT BY THE WAY, let me introduce a character that decided to make like a normal meatball aaaaaaaaaaand cook the flesh on it. Meatball, but it's in Russian. And since it's spoilers, I may as well show a character I already drew a few months ago at the same place I drew this one: Allie the Teddy. Like, same location. Apparently it's rather good to draw sprites there.

SPOILER ALERT: YOU MUST LOG IN BEFORE PROCEEDING IN ORDER TO COLLAPSE THE POST. Like, seriously, you can't fully appreciate AEWVS after having spoilers instead of facing the content head-on first-time. Plus it's a horror game with unexpectations.

So anyway, here you go.

Here's the modified one:

Yes, it is difficult to simultaneously use ghosts and backgrounds, and there's a few things I want to fix about Albert. Anyway, now that I look at it, it is quite simple, unlike it's raw counterpart, Version 0.1.1b Freek-a-del'ka, which had a bloody raw meatball. Honestly, I preferred that one, but I do see how it's kind of low-quality. I think I realise why Phonty and Fleshy are being redesigned, but still, you gotta admit those eight big threatening sharp legs were great. I'm starting to find that I'm using more colour shades for the characters, like Phonty and Fleshy (again), since they need better lighting. Also, as it turns out, I'm doing something frowned upon for most of my sprites: pillow-shading. It's the one where you just shade around the outlines. But still, ambient occlusion really works in a game with a lack of light sources and shadows. Anyway, yeah.

OML I need to redo the backgrounds and the shadows.

advanced education with viktor strobovski baldi's basics fan game

Wow, I'm early. Anyway, uh...not sure what you mean, but I think I get the gist of it. Yes. Maybe. But still, you gotta give it some slack. It's probably going to be way different and more complicated than BBIEAL even when the full versions of both of them are released. That was just it's starting point.

(7 edits)

Wait nevermind, you just said "_ baldi's basics fan game" 11 times in a row on different pages and also just "baldi's basics fan game" once. Bit redundant I guess. Oh well. Still though, you should really check this one out. They've all been posted "1 hour ago" so I don't think you really checked any of them out properly...

(1 edit)

So, I wanted to do something in time for my birthday, but I didn't have much time, so I decided I would draw another character. But nearly every character with a tangible personality has been drawn already, and the only one I've drawn that doesn't have a personality is the Puppet. I decided I would draw him because he was ugly. Oh, and also Granny, who's a little bit more interesting even though she barely has much to say for herself.

So I considered my options. We had...Smile Wolf...Doggos...the Priest...Baldi...literally anyone from BBIEAL...those two guardians...the Gingerbread-Men...the Followers...the Watcher...and then Phonty. Meh, I just decided to do Phonty, because at least he's the partner of the most round character in the game: Erie. Even though she's also flat. Literally.

So I was going to do some stuff, but I didn't do it in time for my birthday because I was too late, so I decided whatever, I guess I'll just do it for Halloween which was like just two days later. But what do you know, I barely gave myself an opportunity to do anything, especially in the heat with my computer amplifying itself with it! And then when I had the opportunity, the totally poor cats were harassing me so I gave in and wasted a bunch of time. A bit over half an hour. You know, I don't think I would've finished in time anyway. Now it's 1:30 AM (don't judge me, I have no personal schedules at all) and Halloween's already gone and it's November. But whatever, here you go.

Drew Phonty in...maybe a bit less than an hour, who was an absolute pain to measure because of his tendency to have to sit on stools if he's not standing up with his legs out. And he's a lot further below head height in AEWVSCC than AEWVS and I don't even know if his size is different, so that was unreliable. For now, I just did the current version of Phonty. I can see now why you decided to redesign it after seeing an identical phonograph in another game. Must be a stock model. But why give him just six round legs this time? I liked him better when he had those eight big threatening sharp legs.

Everything looks awry now. Angell's head height compared with the ceiling is higher in AEWVS than with the tiles and sprites. Something is definitely wrong.

(2 edits)

So, um.

I just had this great big idea to accurately measure characters relative to Angell's face* without having to try to get the angle just right.

So I went and downloaded XMouse Button Control to lock the Y axis.

Then I went back to AEWVS, which crashed three times, locked the mouse and guess what?

It didn't work.

What a waste of downloading time.

It would've been WAY easier to just go and backup my save data and use an earlier version of AEWVS.

Waaaaaaaait a minute...! You need Version 0.0.6 which is not available for download, right? And the earliest version I have aside from 0.0.1 and 0.0.3 is 0.0.7, isn't it? Dang!

*This was my method for drawing every single one of the characters so far, including Helpscreen, Viktor, Marzia, Alice, Laura, Mix, Cleany, Grandma, Puppet, Erie and Al.

OMW just realised how inconsistent Angell's in-game sprites are. Like, since nobody actually sees what she's wearing, nobody notices or cares. So I just looked at the death screen where she got piked, and the other ones where she's on the floor. Big difference!

I was going to redesign Angell so it's more consistent with the game but even the game isn't consistent...Have we all settled on this one? I'm pretty sure we have. Why is it upside down. Anyway, yeah. We've also settled on her wearing a dress so there's that. Oh, yeah and I just remembered...she walks like she has shoes on even though she's barefoot. I think I was gonna say something else but I forgot so bye.

It's possible that Angell's outfit will change πŸ‘€

I thought she was wearing rags, so yeah...I'm redesigning her

The problem is, I don't see where she wears the Belt without the fold in the rags...

Game logic.

It's like how can you hold a muffin, a "key", a magnet and an donut all at the same time. In what's she's swearing, I don't think there's pockets.

Better yet: four entire Christmas trees with only one of them on one arm. And still, the weight doesn't pull her down when she runs.

True. When being thrown in a boiling cauldron, I don't think you can open your eyes. Yet she stares at Mix/Laura for quite a long time while her eyes are burning. (Even the new "closing eyes" in cauldron system, it should just close your eyes instantly or something.)

Dude...IDK why he uploaded Version 0.0.7b (he probably said why in Discord), but we're at Version 0.1.3b. Why not play that and see what's new? And, why did you follow me?

Uploaded it because new versions are 32 bit by default and some OS can't run the game, and i made visible old 32 and 64 bit versions to test this.

Hey again...Barely anything happened in a while but guess what I did?

I found a way to climb on the furniture!!! >:D

Climbing on furniture is an ideal strategy for outrunning the angry, altitudinally-incapacitated teachers - if only it were for the capability to JUMP! So you might be wondering, "how the heck did you manage to get up there?" Well, it only works with using the sick beds as a ramp, so if you're pretty much anywhere else, you won't be able to climb on anything, since even using the sick beds doesn't get you anywhere except for the top of the...um...pillow. You'll have to run up to the top of the bed and ledge grab onto the table by foot, but be careful because you'll run for a bit after you get there and usually just land on the floor, so, yeah. The limitations of the game honestly make me question Angell's humanity. I mean, not really, but the game just acts like she just stands there in an A-pose while moving.

I'm pretty sure I was going to discuss another thing, but I forgot, so...yeah.

I Don't Know

(1 edit)

Just because people don't show any signs of knowing what's going on doesn't mean they don't.

Only idiots assume others.

Also, the figurative distance between BBIEAL and AEWVS, quite frankly, discomforts me.

Haven't really played this game in a while, has it had any really big updates to it recently?

(2 edits)

No MORE updates

He wants to buff it for a few months

Again (obviously)

If you've played Version 0.1.3b, you're all caught up. I haven't really used it much either since I have a lot to do. Have to bring the comment back up, it's kinda late


Hey, Zombie Skull!  It's been a while since I've last seen ya around here!

Anyways, there actually hasn't been an update for AEwVS for several months, so I don't think it will be updated for quite a while.  You will probably hear a lot when a new update is released, but you never know!

Hey Mix, been a bit since i last been here. Kinda got busy with a lot of stuff and the game wasn't really updating much and i came back hoping there would be more but sadly it seems there is not.

If you had $1000 would you rather give it to Micah and ask him to make that painting of Viktor laughing an actual poster in BBIEAL after the Kickstarter and rewards thing already ended, or give it to Argemia and see if he works on AEWVS more often?

This is my best attempt at sanitizing Dark Freudenmacher, 90% cleaned of blood. The eyes were very difficult to clean.


just realised that actually said "Dark Freudenmacher"

That looks really weird

No wonder she practices blood facial spa treatments. Also, I've given her a ton of nicknames at this point, it's hard for me to decide one to stick with.

Eh, I'd just call Alice's alter-ego by it's actual name.

Also, I think she also has darkness, not just blood.

How can you enable developer's console in 0.0.2?

(1 edit)



I know, strange huh?

It's Me Again!


Huh? I don't understand

(3 edits)

OMG LOLLLLLL what--don't tell me you decided to change your mind so all those conspiracies and plans I made for post-AEWVS are suddenly applicable again...dang...

Oh and you could've made it clearer by making it cancelled instead of on hold...I can't tell now

Well...just in case, tell me some things you'd like to have to keep making AEWVS, because I don't even imagine you get paid very much...so...yeah...

(3 edits)



So! Remember the time I first drew Erie?

Yeah I did say I had to redesign it, just like mrdrnose did for the last 13 times.* As soon as I drew that, I knew it was going to look terribly out of proportion as soon as you looked at it from another angle - or even just the front. I mean look. Anyway, I redesigned it, and it looks much better now. Can't believe it took me this long to notice how she has two claws on her right hand, not three. Oh and by the way, I didn't actually take that long to do it. I just had a lot of things to do. This endeavour started, like, what? 4 months ago?

yeah im a person of consistency. Oh, and you do NOT want to see what it looks like against an unclarified background.

Anyway, there's something I want to talk about quick. I've started to notice that Erie's quite an out-of-place character in AEWVS for three reasons:

  1. Erie doesn't like Viktor, despite him, Erie and/or Helpscreen seemingly representing mrdrnose in some way. Kinda wanna know if some of them do.
  2. Being a librarian just doesn't suit her. She may have a librarian job, but it's clearly a pain and also something totally not her niche. I mean, she doesn't even read any of the books. And no matter what book you give her, she shreds it anyway. Why can't she just shred all the books at the library herself?
  3. If you've seen mrdrnose's Twitter or social media where he does random stuff about Erie redesigning herself and doing random things post-game, you'll see how casual, and, dare I say, unsuitable for a horror game she is. (I don't even remember the way I was going to say it to begin with but there. This is my main point.) She's not scary or terrified or anything. She's just an angry robot that chokes you with her claws, demands you around and then swears at you once she's done with you.

Now that Erie's already in AEWVS and established connections with Phonty, Alice and some others, the game just wouldn't be the same without her. She needs to get more involved or do something that's actually scary or sad, or at least have darker secrets or an unsettling journal in her room. Also another point I couldn't think of any way to say properly.

I still have some questions (not just about your random choices I want to be endarkened** about, mostly about all the redesigns and other odd things), but you know what? I think I'll just wait for you to get back to me.

So...um. Bye!

*DISCLAIMER: I didn't count.
**As opposed to enlightenment. Actually, come to think of it, I meant it in the same vein. Don't really want to be "in the dark".


Today is a great day ayy lumoπŸ‘½πŸ‘½πŸ‘½

won't ask

(dubiously checks Twitter)

Nevermind I see why. Also I don't.

Are you going to continue the modifiable version of your Alex Basics In Biology And Zoology videogame?

Yyyyyyyyyyyyep... Second time now...


hyped for alpha 1.4

(2 edits)

Here's some more offensive posts to make you even more pissed about everything. ...Maybe. Oh and I'm not just saying that because you don't approve of my decisions, or because Erie (privately(?)) advocates R34.

So, just how many times did you redesign Erie over the course of AEWVS?
Because I literally just did this but I think I'm gonna have to as well.

The disproportion of literally everything kinda worries me but oh well. I did my sprites pretty much larger than many others I see around (Level Up's Baldi sprites are still way bigger though - like, disproportionately big too) but even so, there's still seemingly so little room for facial details. what the heck.
