This is a complete step-by-step walkthrough guide for the iOS, Android and PC game Burly Men at Sea by Brain&Brain. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.

This game is similar to the Stanley Parable in that you make small changes to find a different path. I’m including descriptions and videos for how to get each of the twelve voyages, along with each map.

See my Burly Men at Sea review here.

Controls:

Most of the game is swipe-based. You swipe to stretch the window to the right or left and the bearded men will move in that direction. Sometimes you need to tap on things. Play around with your environment to see what you discover!

If at any point you want to interrupt your voyage and go back to the village, tap the upper left corner of the screen to access the menu. It’s currently bugged at the moment, though, and could cause all sorts of weird problems. So I recommend not using it until an update fixes it.

Walkthrough:

At the very beginning of the game, swipe to the right to see the message in a bottle. It’s actually a map! Tap the bottle to view the map. You’ll be introduced to the three Beard brothers, Hasty, Steady, and Brave. Once their boat docks at the village, feel free to look around and talk to everyone. The main objective is the house all the way to the right. There’s a barista here who tells the Beard brothers about the map. Head to your boat and sail off to be swallowed by a whale!

This is the order I went in:

final-23

Voyage 19264:

Talk to the nymphs around the fire and get a torch. Then, head left inside the whale until you find some barrels. Equip them and then head through the little doorway. Head right and tap the whale’s uvula to pull it, causing him to eject the brothers. Then swim right until you meet Charon, the ferryman of Hades. Win the race against him by dragging him back so he loses. Then continue on until they get sucked into a maelstrom. For this ending, shrink the maelstrom and they’ll float to the top. Then swim right to meet the sea creature.

final-15

Voyage 25284:

Talk to the nymphs again. Then, eject from the whale without any floatation device. Swim to the right. Then look behind the men to the left and suddenly an “island” will appear to the right. It turns out it’s a kraken! Tap and hold a tentacle when it lands on its head. Then do the same for a second one. The brothers will tie the tentacles together and then use the kraken as a ride. They’ll find themselves next at a waterfall. Swipe to move the water away from the entrance. There’s an old man here who offers you a raft after you deny his violin. To get this ending, get on the raft and row off to the right to meet the sea creature again.

final-16

Voyage 31304:

Wait with the nymphs for the whale to open its mouth. Then you’ll sail off with the boat and end up at an island. Tap the bird that’s on the rocky formation to the right. It’s a sleeping Troll! He wakes up and wants to get you a flower. Head back to the boat. The troll will come back with a “flower,” which is really a upended tree. Tap it to knock it down and he’ll go looking for a new one. While he’s gone, get in the boat and sail off again. It starts raining and some mermaids (womenfolk) appear. Tap and pull the the opening closed so they swim off. The rain sinks the boat. The brothers continue on in three barrels they found in the boat and meet the sea creature again.

final-21

Voyage 15652:

Head left inside the whale until you find some barrels. Equip them and then head through the little doorway. Head right and tap the whale’s uvula to pull it, causing him to eject the brothers. Then swim right until you meet Charon, the ferryman of Hades. Lose the race against him by dragging the brothers back so they lose. He takes them to a cave and locks them in. Find the glowing orb and follow it to two tunnel entrances. Take the right tunnel to the back entrance. Find the little row boat and tap the rope to untie it. Then row off to meet the sea creature again.

final-18

Voyage 14448:

Head left inside the whale until you find some barrels. Equip them and then head through the little doorway. Head right and tap the whale’s uvula to pull it, causing him to eject the brothers. Then swim right until you meet Charon, the ferryman of Hades. Lose the race against him by dragging the brothers back so they lose. He takes them to a cave and locks them in. Find the glowing orb and follow it to two tunnel entrances. Take the left tunnel and jump into the sea.

final-18

Voyage 26488:

Wait with the nymphs for the whale to open its mouth. Then sail off with the boat to the island. Tap the bird to wake up the sleeping Troll. When he goes off to get you a flower, head back to the boat. When the troll comes back with the tree, instead of knocking it down, just get in the boat. He’ll stop you and the men will convince him to throw the tree with them on it. They land in a leviathan’s mouth. Squeeze it shut to launch the men into the sky, then they’ll sink underwater again.

final-20

Voyage 25080:

Eject from the whale without any floatation device. Swim to the right. Find the kraken again. Tap and hold a tentacle when it lands on its head. Then do the same for a second one. The brothers will tie the tentacles together and then use the kraken as a ride. They’ll end up back at the waterfall. Swipe to move the water away from the entrance. The old man recognizes them and just offers them the raft. But instead of getting on it, open the waterfall again and head back into the cave. The old man will get angry and send the brothers back under the sea.

final-16

Voyage 27692:

Wait with the nymphs for the whale to open its mouth. Then sail off with the boat to the island. Tap the bird to wake up the sleeping Troll. When he goes off to get you a flower, head back to the boat. When the troll comes back with the tree, instead of knocking it down, just get in the boat. He’ll stop you and the men will convince him to throw the tree with them on it. They land in a leviathan’s mouth. Pull its mouth open all the way and the leviathan will leave. Continue rowing to meet the sea creature again.

final-20

Voyage 30100:

Wait with the nymphs for the whale to open its mouth. Then you’ll sail off with the boat and end up at an island. Tap the bird that’s on the rocky formation to the right. It’s a sleeping Troll! He wakes up and wants to get you a flower. Head back to the boat. The troll will come back with a “flower,” which is really a upended tree. Tap it to knock it down and he’ll go looking for a new one. While he’s gone, get in the boat and sail off again. It starts raining and some mermaids (womenfolk) appear. Pull the dry area open to the right and more mermaids will appear. Hasty Beard jumps in after them and they all end up underwater again.

final-21

Voyage 18060:

Head left inside the whale until you find some barrels. Equip them and then head through the little doorway. Head right and tap the whale’s uvula to pull it, causing him to eject the brothers. Then swim right until you meet Charon, the ferryman of Hades. Win the race against him by dragging him back so he loses. Then continue on until they get sucked into a maelstrom. For this ending, stretch the maelstrom and they’ll get sucked under to the underwater ending again.

final-15

Voyage 20468:

Eject from the whale without a floatation device and find the kraken. We’re going to try something different here. Instead of riding the kraken, keep swapping away his tentacles until he gets angry and pulls the brothers underwater. They’ll meet a seal and he and his friends will turn the brothers into seals so they can swim to the surface. This is probably the trickiest part of the game. You need to keep them together. If you don’t, like I did in this ending, they’ll sink to the bottom again.

final-22

Voyage 21672:

Eject from the whale without a floatation device and find the kraken. We’re going to try something different here. Instead of riding the kraken, keep swapping away his tentacles until he gets angry and pulls the brothers underwater. They’ll meet a seal and he and his friends will turn the brothers into seals so they can swim to the surface. This is probably the trickiest part of the game. You need to keep them close together inside the bubble (pull to the right a bit and release, then repeat) as they swim and eventually they’ll surface and urn back into men. Head towards the rock. Then just let them wait on it until the sea creature arrives again. Then you’ll get the best ending in the game!

final-22
