The Broken Age: Act 1 Walkthrough
Table of Contents
At the start of the game, you’ll get a choice – start as Vella, or Shay. For a fantastical adventure on a strange new world, I went with Vella first.
Click her to wake Vella up, then walk left and left-click Vella’s little sister in the distance. She’ll run off, click her again to follow, then an arrow will appear. The arrow indicates you’ll enter a new area if you click there – double-click to instantly warp inside.
It’s a surprise party! Before Vella can go to the Maidens Feast, her mom wants to cut the cake with a special knife. Talk to grandma to learn more about the feast – it looks like Vella is going to be fed to a monster called the Grand Mog to appease it.
Grandpa, looking out the window, will reveal he’s hidden the knife to slow down the festival proceedings.
Find the knife by investigating the placement covered in clothe in the left foreground. Vella will gain a cupcake and a towel. Return to grandpa and drag the cupcake item over him to initiate a conversation.
Choose to split the cupcake, and he’ll reveal the knife. It’ll slip from his hands. Grab it and return the item to Mom, and you’ll be whisked away to the Maidens Feast.
