This is it, Stanley! Art! I did it! Video games are art!


The Art Ending is the ending that occurs when you play The Baby Game for 4 hours as the Narrator recommends without letting either the baby or the puppy die even once.

This ending is in the HD remake and Ultra Deluxe.

Obtaining the Ending

Exit your office and head to the right door at the Two Doors Room. Carry on straight to the warehouse, get in the cargo lift and jump to the catwalk in the middle of the ride, then head to the Colored Doors Room and enter the blue door three times. After being taken back to the Two Doors Room, this time with a third door, go through any door and rate your experience. After you're taken back, repeat what you have done. You'll be taken to the Baby Game afterwards. When you face the Baby Game, the Narrator tells you to keep pressing the button for four hours. After two hours, you need to do the same for another blue button for a dog.

The Baby Game


As the Narrator instructs you, you'll have to play the game for 4 hours, which is probably the biggest challenge the game presents. Your task here is very simple; push the red button to keep the baby from the fire. The Narrator will periodically speak to Stanley about the nature of the game as it goes on.

After two hours of playing, the Narrator will add a Puppy to the game, where the puppy is being lowered into a pool of piranhas. This means you will be forced to deal with two buttons at the same time, preventing any sort of "auto-clicker" as now you have to constantly move between the two. Should you fail the former, the Narrator will take you straight away to the Games Ending, so be careful.

After three hours of playing, the Narrator will discuss the possibility if Stanley keeps pressing the buttons. The Narrator imagined that people will come from all over the world to see "the man who never stops pushing buttons", and that video games are actually art (the Narrator is talking about his video game).

The Ending

At the final hours of the game, the room will shake violently, and a being known as the Essence of Divine Art will shine the room with a bright light. The Divine Art reveals its true self before Stanley and grants him the freedom Stanley longed for. The game then resets.

With The Bucket

If Stanley is holding The Bucket, access to this ending is locked and instead leads the player to the No Buckets Ending.


  • Letting the puppy get dipped into the lake of piranha causes the baby's reset button to malfunction, effectively forcing a loss.
  • The Narrator calls Stanley a heartless bastard regardless of how long he's played the game.
  • [HDR Exclusive] It's possible to play both games without having to press any of the buttons; get the developer console, type in the following: ent_fire babytrainofdeath stop. You will still have to wait for 4 hours though.
