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. Its 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 always be deleted and reposted at the top. Bye!

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.

Original Viktor, Marzia, and Cleany images: 




Hey wait...What about the (ugly) Puppet? I mean...it doesn't seem to reside anywhere and it also has way too many additions so I imagine it would be insanely painful to photoshop lol

Updated 2 days ago? What changed?

I think it's when he removed all the OLD versions.

also he shortened the fangame notice


Not an Fangame

From what I understand here is that you say that mrdrnose‘s game is not good enough, so you want to „remake“ it, aka steal mrdrnose‘s idea to make your own game. Right. You know that this is not cool, don’t you?

Deleted post

Dude. Just no. You can make a fan game, but don’t steal the whole game just to make it „better“ without the developer‘s permission.

Dude, Mix up gamers played through the game in his streams. Of course it contains spoilers. Stop complaining about spoilers in gameplay videos or streams. And we have a spoiler channel on the Discord server. So if you don’t click on that, you won’t be spoiled. And what do you mean with „about as dangerous as Undertale“?

(how is it now)

(it's literally just something quick i wanted to say under my breath)

I'm not complaining but thanks for the feedback. Please delete your comment now because I'm gonna try to fix it and I don't want this to be awkward forever.


1: I'm not complaining

2: AB is enough already

3: they're literally everywhere

How exactly is Antibreather only a spoiler? That’s a character. As long as you don’t say where it is, how you can find it and what else you can find in its place, it’s not a spoiler. A spoiler is if you spoil an ending or situation that happens. But saying the name or showing a picture of a character is not a spoiler.

(1 edit) (-1)

I suppose because if people know about his existence and can't find him, they'll know something's up and start looking for secrets. They're supposed to come about it naturally. Like, the secrets are really well-hidden if the community isn't spoiling it for everyone and I'm pretty sure they're more rewarding if they don't just go on giving out hints upon request.

In fact, now that I think about it, these comments are spoilers sooooooooo

Here's my recent video of this game. Not much of a fan of how the menu is laid out but it's been awhile lol.



The tutorial was serious (even though it's five minutes long before getting to the test) and it was just a bug that got patched this version...there I said it. Bye


Thanks for the reply dude but.... the end of that message wasn't really necessary lol

well your welcome. come back 4 moar feedback

Yeah, just ignore this dude. He’s a bit weird sometimes.

I really wanted to say that to the other YouTuber as well but I had enough and just decided to be a mad lad and said that's cool soooooooo yeah

Imma just post this here. Don’t say anything if you don’t have nice things to say or something... 


that's cool

I'm a savior. 





Just gonna leave this here.

I recognise that glitch though...

I'm partially convinced no-one, not even Devon-WH47'5H15NUM83R, actually got through Brainiac without unknowingly exploiting at least one glitch. And that one, right there, might be one of them...

somebody please stop the trashbag collisions

What glitch? That brainiac run was done completely glitchless.

(3 edits)

Sigh. Well I'm pretty sure Viktor would've caught you by then or at least got stuck at the door if he didn't get stuck on the trash bin just before the classroom you were in while you were at 10/11. One time I saw him get stuck after getting a soda there and decided to try playing a harder level while he tried to escape the path barrier but I didn't really go and do all of it.

You know what actually, I'll go and recreate it just to be sure it isn't anything new.

How would you know? Also there was a magnet. He would have to strike it down first.

Also even if he was stuck, give me a break man. Him getting stuck prolonged me beating brainiac from 1 month to 3! 

(1 edit)

I know, I know. Just saying. I just knew because he was at the trash bin before the door when you completed the notebook, and he would've gone REALLY fast after getting all those problems wrong.

(5 edits)

Just tested it for the glitch, and it doesn't occur...well, at least with the following circumstances anyway:

-Version 0.0.7a, Brainiac Arithmetic
-11 examples incorrect (don't know if I need to get more wrong)
-Less than 10 notebooks collected at any point (don't know if the final chase behaves differently)
-Tested with <3 and >2 notebooks
-Used muffins (don't know if that affects it)

To truly test it properly, I'll have to recreate the circumstances you were in, but for now, screw it. I have better things to do. Bye.

Wow man, why are you so salty about it? XD

I'm not even being salty about it...

Yes, you are. You really want to prove me wrong that he got stuck and that I didn't legit beat brainiac.

Also, you ended your sentence with an obnoxious ending. " Screw it. I have better things to do. Bye."

Nope, not salty at all.

(3 edits) (-1)


salty /ˈsɔːlti,ˈsɒlti/ adj.

3: tough or aggressive.
"a salty campaign strategist"

  • (INFORMAL•US) angry or resentful, especially in response to a defeat or disappointment. "she was salty because I didn't go with her to her senior prom"

I'm not any of those right now. I'm literally just saying and you know what? I'm not that desperate. Can we just move on?

And by the way, if everything mattered to me less than they already do now (and I know life is meaningless and we're all just evolved worms, slaves of DNA trying to strive for happiness), I would just spend an entire semester bothering for the heck of it. I actually have better things to do than try to prove you wrong.

(1 edit)

I uncorrupted and saved Viktor and Marzia from the school's curse. I'm the school's messiah, not Angell. 

(1 edit)

I have no words.







Seriously, what the hell just happened? I...

I'm gonna go now. No time for explanations. Well actually, I wonder...What would happen to the rest of the faculty?

(1 edit)

I imagine Cleany and Head-teacher being reverted as well, but not Alice or Mr. Mix. I don't know how to help them. They look too far beyond being physically restored, if they ever needed to be in the first place.

pluto please send the original images

By the way, on a meta note...Did you use an image editing program or some kind of modder?

This was expertly made purely with Adobe Photoshop. I took a screenshot of the teachers, downloaded their original unedited human forms from Mrdrnose on Discord in the deleted-and-original-images tab (like how head-teacher had an original form), mosiac-pixelated the humans, matched their color tone with the atmosphere, and voila. I'm the messiah. I'm so happy I finally was given graphic design as a class for 11th grade instead of some stupid elective that I didn't even want nor asked for, like choir for the fourth time, or theatre-arts for the fourth time, or interpersonal-studies for the first time. It really paid off.

(1 edit)

I...I think this feeling is shock, surprise, awkwardness and apprehension...I feel jittery now.

Genuine Positive Amazement, or Amazingly Cringed-Out?

Neither, to be honest...


please make a macbook version


Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhh... okay.


wait can't he literally just change the settings of the project so that it can be exported into a mac-supported format


Imao no

Oh. Thought I saw an option to just add every console supported by Unreal Engine when I had it installed

Whatever, Mac probably needs different controls anyway since they have different keyboards and you probably wouldn't know much about that or how to not let things get in the way.


Uh, let me try modding this game...



Well, mrdrnose didn't give anyone permission to mod the game because that would lag too much. Like, seriously. Do you have any idea how much the game lags already without dragging the blueprints and menus with it?


I’m done with my Advanced Education with Viktor Strobovski Baldi‘s Basics Mod


(6 edits) (+1)(-8)

Oooooooookay. Well since we're still here, I guess I should be constructive for once and tell you exactly WHY (I think) that duplex fangame is one of the numerous fabled epitomes of cringe.

For one, the graphics look very half-bothered.

Also, it's yet another one of the endless stream of Baldi's Basics fangames where it's literally just BBIEAL, but the characters and textures are changed. It just feels like mockery on the characters' and Baldi's parts. I mean, some serious-as-all-hell people are joining the same league as a bunch of dumb characters probably six year olds drew since they're also being character swaps in BBIEAL. Are they seriously participating in such a silly...trend? I mean obviously, because they have no choice and they are pieces of automata trapped in a modification, but are they really deciding to be like the rest of the people out there who had no choice but to make awkward fools out of themselves by playing parts in Baldi's school?

It also feels notably like mockery on Viktor's part, for very obvious reasons.

By the way, we already know that if Viktor DID defeat Baldi (and then take over his school, as you suggest), it would take quite a lot of effort to defeat him, since Baldi, being a metapotent entity in his universe, is definitely a cursed force to be reckoned with, with his abilities to freely manipulate quantum physics and glitch his simulation of a universe. This may or may not really be a valid point, but it just bothers me in general. And all of that fighting just to be a kindergartener! Like, are you for real. You didn't even renovate his school or anything. I mean, even if Baldi just got out of the way and let Viktor do his thing, why would Viktor do that? That's kind of a dumb thing to do, just take over the school of someone lesser than you and just move your entire faculty there. Especially when you have a better school.

Also, why is Laura still a cat? That was supposed to get reverted this version but oh well. There should be like customisations or something in AEWVS.

I just wanted to say...if the people of AEWVS did see your little fangame, I can assure you with 99.999% certainty that they would cringe.

Anyway. Have a nice day now. Bye.

Wow, whoever liked that comment must not be a...normie, I guess. Anyway, I was the one who did hundreds of cringy things in the past I wish I didn't do because I was an idiot and I just want to share my wisdom. Also every time I do anything...memorable, nowadays, I always think about if I'll think it's cringy in the future.

Literally no one:

People who think this is a fangame: STOP LYING TO ME, THIS IS A FANGAME


You know, I don't even think any of us know what the qualifications are for any game to officially be classified as a fangame.

Well I just looked it up on Wikipedia, so to be honest I think this actually is a fangame. It doesn't matter how different AEWVS is to BBIEAL or how far it branches away and becomes unique, if they share critical core mechanics and concepts, then AEWVS is officially a fangame. And the main thing to remember is that fangames shouldn't be judged by their status as a fangame. This one right here is a brilliant fangame that does totally different things aside from the notebook-collecting and interval-pursuing arithmetic teachers that are deterred from something as simple as soda, as well as everything else. SO WHO CARES IF THIS IS EVEN A FANGAME AT THIS POINT? GET OVER IT. BBIEAL and AEWVS are both great; enough said. Anyway.


(1 edit)

this always happens when I try to play the game


Not enough context, see you later bye!!!

P.S. if that happened to me I would delete my AEWVS save files launch it again and give up after that

what save files?

Join the Discord server. I'm pretty sure someone can help you there.


The discord server has an invalid invite,I cant join,I would love to though just to see what is happening with the game

Oh. I thought we set the link so it never expires. Well, here’s another one: https://discord.gg/Ua3TDkx

I cant find that anywhere on my computer,also when I download it do I extract it or something? the game just brings up the error message everytime I click to open it.I really wanna play this game but for some reason I can't.


Well I think you're hopeless...best try another computer since I don't even know what the fatal error was about

You know what actually, nevermind...

Everytime I try to download the game and open it,the game says there is a Fatal Error and crashes,pls help!

Can I have a screenshot?


fluid movement, dark ambience, a remarkable level design and interesting survival horror mechanics, this game is really impressive! Keep up the good work, mrdrnose.


Oh boy just you wait, that's just the start of it~

(2 edits)

Oh boy, I have even MORE things to say (including more possible bugs), but first, let me try to see what's down the hole under the elevator by repeatedly trying to throw flash mines into it:

Oh come on! That was so close!

Yay, finally, hole in one hundred! Now can I please see what's actually down there now?

Dang it! No! You can't crouch or anything! It's so stupid! I don't like things that are totally in reach but still you can only stare and imagine what might lurk within! Anyway time for a bunch of weird things that are probably just oversights.

2: It happened again, only at the bottom of the stairs this time, and even worse. It didn't even collapse after being sliced into solid strips of sections, which just goes to show how sturdy these doors really are. And what's more, doors are literally more than the sum of their parts. Once they're sliced, the strips mean nothing to barrier the door since Angell could always just step over them. Well, that's universal then, which means once a door is in strips, you can always pass through. Even if they're stacked into a door. Just saying. This bloody paragraph is too long, dang.

2.5: Speaking of doors and Erie, when I got kicked out of the library after slicing the entrance door, the door made the emergency deactivate noise and since the door was open, the absent door made an audible closing sound. I think that's a bug. Anyway,

3: I just threw a book at Erie while running straight past her, but she got me into her clutches anyway.

ahahaha look at how flat and broken she looks

4: I don't know why but the game files are calling stuff totally related to Alice about "Tiara" at some point. The more I think about it, I'm starting to get 25% sure that's going to be a name for Alice's alter-ego. Now that I think about it though, she still called herself Alice at some point while being taken over. Probably because Alice was still fighting it. Come to think of it, every line Alice says when she's taken over is red, except for the one below, which is the only one with that file name, and the subtitles are black. Boy, now I'm 33% sure about it now. Here, look at the directories.

Content > audio > alice > tiara > tiaraQuote1.ogg =
"N0W Y0U W1|| UND3R574ND MY P41N!" (something like that)

Content > audio > ████1* > diaraCutDoor.ogg

..."gread job, dude."

*NOPE1 that's what it means lol

The game is not canceled. MrDrNose said that they will continue working on the game once they are back from their vacation. There also were no updates, because they had finals. I don’t know why they set the game on cancelled though. 🤔

Okay, I have a bunch of things to say.

1: I have a question; does Alice still have all four arms and tentacles when she's fine and not troubled yet (and just has her hands behind her back (obviously they're too big for her pockets)), or does she just take a normal practically human form?

2: If you thought Viktor was scary, just you go in the BATHROOM!!!

3: I found what I believe to be yet another bug in the History Level. And considering how the door's hitboxes don't work anymore...it's very weird and probably should be fixed.

EDIT: Many of the times I tried that since then, the pieces actually fell to the ground properly.

(7 edits)

Sigh. I found EVEN MORE bugs regarding Alice, Erie, clocks, magnets and doors. So, to make bug reports more interesting, I proudly present to you:

Automata Erosion with Valiant Strats, or A.E.W.V.S!

(yes I had to get creative)

Hopefully the picture explains everything already as it is. Erie stuck in place with a book, the clock motionless, the elevator stuck at the bottom floor, what more could you want out of life!? And even BETTER: softlocking the elevator is optional! That means you can complete the entire History Level with NO WORRIES!!! (ESPECIALLY if nobody reads this before the History Level is finished! TROLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!) No Alice, nothing! So here's what you do, in 10 easy steps.

  1. Retrieve the neodymium magnet from the table.
  2. Attach it to the entrance door of the Library.
  3. Wait for Alice.
  4. Vanquish Alice as quickly as she slices the door open.
  5. Piss off Erie.
  6. Patiently become escorted out of the Library.
  7. Return to the Library via the broken entrance.
  8. Find a book, any book to gain Erie's attention.
  9. Give it to her.
  10. Voilà! The clock will not move as Erie examines the book, so that Alice cannot catch you whilst Erie has you in her discipline. Neither will Erie, as she has already thrown you out of the library, which means there is nothing left for her. Therefore, Alice and Erie will both begone, lost forever in a personal softlock! Actually, I need to see what happens if I give Erie the book whilst Alice is present. Will she stop walking and glare at me with great creepy contempt as she waits for Erie's action which is never going to happen?

Anyway, as an optional bonus, here's how to trap yourself at the second storey, in THREE EASY STEPS:

  1. Set the elevator to level 1.
  2. Activate it.
  3. Dash out of there before the doors shut.

As the world stands still, should Angell not choose to travel back in time, starvation will ravage her body as empty packets of chips, soda cans and chocolate crumbs lay on the floor, later followed by decomposition. Hahaha, everything is so brilliant! I'll get back to you about what if I did that in Alice's presence.

EDIT: Nevermind, Alice still keeps moving. Also, every other time, I was always being too late. Well, this time, I got fed up with waiting and just gave her six wrong books. I don't know why, but I got quite scared when she swore at me. Lolololololololololololol. I was kind of in a rush. (What shocks me though is that she has low enough standards to read Rule 34 comics but also higher enough standards than every other staff member to censor her own bloody profanity. Not only is she the only one able to physically censor herself, but she actively declined to swear at Viktor during the Christmas party.) By the way, I'm not sure why the bear traps appeared like this. I suppose it's to make them less visible.
