The Broken Age: Act 1 Walkthrough
Table of Contents
Landing inside the strange cabin, start by investigating the stained glass window on the second floor. The section depicted the sun will pop out and appear in your inventory.
Downstairs, take the axe at the base of the stairs, attached to the right wall. Then, have a talk with the woodworker Curtis.
He isn’t so bad, he’ll even offer to build Vella something. But, he doesn’t have any wood yet. Look at the strange blue piece of art above the fireplace and ask Curtis about it. At first, he wants to keep it, but go through all of his conversation choices and he’ll give it to Vella.
Leave through the door right of the stairs. There’s not much outside his home, just an empty mailbox and a path in the foreground leading left or right.
Go left first, and Vella will encounter a deadly snake! To get rid of it, click on the tuba hanging from the tree. The sound will scare it away, but it won’t remove the threat. Time to head in the opposite direction.
It’s a tree! Just like Curtis said, these trees are alive. Use the axe on this one to give it a mouth. Chatting with it, it looks like Vella can get her hands on some sap – but only if she can make the tree barf.
Keep moving right, and Vella will make it to Shellmound.
