Broken Age Act 2: Complete Walkthrough for Shay and Vella

11. Go talk to Carol and ask her about untying knots. I told her the knot looks like an elephant eating its trunk, but it may look different for you. Try my knot untying guide if you can’t figure out what yours looks like. She needs a writing utensil, so go to Alex in the pyramid and ask for his space pencil. Then come back to Carol, give her the pencil and get the diagram from her.




12. Go back to the talking tree. Place the sand Superconductive Gyroscopic Hypercam on the hardened sap on the ground. Then show him the flyer of Vella and he’ll vomit sap onto the model. It now has a hardened shell around it that can be used as a mold.


13. Go back to Curtis and ask him to use the mold to make you a “Super Candle Holder.” You now have a metal Superconductive Gyroscopic Hypercam!


14. Go back up to Meriloft. Use the diagram that Carol gave you to instruct F’ther on untying the knot. For mine, it goes in this order:

“Steal the banana.”
“Make the baby play patty-cake.”
“Make the boat go under the bridge.”

It might be different each time. But try to make your best guess of what the picture is. (You can also try my knot untying guide if you’re stuck here.) If you make a mistake, you’ll have to start over with a new diagram from Carol. But you can say that you’re going to get a new diagram and the game will teleport you directly to Carol and back. If you do so, make sure you saw what the new knot looks like! After the knot is untied, Harm’ny’s stuff will be revealed and F’ther will let you take the Heavy Duty Anti-Gravity Thrust Unit. He’ll actually help you take it to Alex. So while you’re there, give him the Hypercam as well.



15. Head back to the talking tree. When Harm’ny’s junk fell, a fish got stuck in its branches and you need it. So you’re going to have to tell him a joke and make him laugh. There are a few possible ways to do this. If you don’t see the option below, try one of the jokes in my Tree Joke guide. This is one order in which to answer:

“Hey, wanna hear a joke?”
“Did you hear about the First National Tree Bank?”
“It closed down.”
“Don’t worry. It just started a new branch.”

Now the tree will start laughing and the singing fish will fall so you can pick it up.

16. Take the fish and show it to Carol. Now you can give her the hook and tell her you used it to catch that fish. She’ll believe you and give you her wire. You can combine the wire with the broken Hexipal, but you still need a clue from Vella’s story to rewire it properly, so we’ll come back to that later. If you already have that information and are ready to fix the hexipal, see my hexipal guide here.


17. Let’s go back to Meriloft, as there’s still a lot to do there. Head right to the center of the village. Then go right and talk to Vella’s sister, Rocky, and Walter’s daughter, Maggie. They’re selling cupcakes with Vella’s face on them, but won’t give you one without payment.



You can also watch my video for this part of the walkthrough:

18. Head towards the distance, where Vella’s grandpa is teaching Ch’t to sword fight. Ask them for money and Ch’t will give you a coin. Exhaust all other options to learn about Grandpa’s frosting cane.


19. Go back to the two girls and give them the coin in exchange for a cupcake.


20. You can try offering the cupcake to Grandpa now, but he’ll refuse to frost it since it already has frosting on it. Go back to the village center. Then head to the Cloud Shoes station where Carol used to work. Vella’s father, Husker, and Walter (Walt’r) are here, talking. Exhaust all options with them. Offer the cupcake to Walter and he’ll lick the frosting off.

Stuck on repairing Hexipal wiring

Im using PS4

When I got the hexigal all the way through to the door, she got sucked up through the big hole seperating the kitchen with the control room, did i do something wrong? Do I need to restart or…?


Go into the kitchen, get the thing in the top center to say ‘taco pill Tuesday’ while in the sun thing, and then use the grabby arm.


i am also stuck on the hexipal wiring the part with the drums.
i tried your walktrough but i think mine is different.
can you please help me


Thank you for this walkthrough! I think I’ve made a mistake, and I’m not sure how to go back. I’m trying to rewire the hexipal to beat the drum, but I didn’t write down Vella’s burnt hexigal pattern. Is there any way to go back to see it?


Yes i have but my friend helped me with it. Can you give me some hints?


I’m stuck on wiring the first hexipal can somebody help me?


Ok first:thanks for the wireing guide i got stuck fvor a long time at that part.Never tought that infos from vellas story are used for Shays or the other way around.
Second:How did Shey knew how to connect the wires if the family photo was on Vellas side of story and how did Vella knew about the wire pattern in the book on Alexs ship?
I guess the only “plausible” explenation is that they comunicate through telepathy,but only twins are supposed to posess such abilityes…….but……that means……OMG PLOT TWIST VELLA AND SHAY ARE TWINS XD.


I’m placing the hexipal by the harp but he won’t play it he just stands there for a few seconds then Shay pick him back up. Please help what did I do wrong


I’m at the end now but Alex disabled the death ray so I can’t use it. How can I enable it?

Matty C:

Can you please help me ASAP?
In (pretty much) the end, I’m supposed to use the drumstick and turn on the power, right? But I didn’t know that until I read this, so now it’s stuck to my hexipal! Is it possible to take it away/reset that thing? It would be really depressing if I have to reset the whole game and start over…


What did u do ? I have the exact problem !


I need help it won’t let me do the very last thing Vella just keeps saying “didn’t work that time. Alex did u disable my death ray?”


ok I’m sure I’ll prob get stuck wiring the hexipal but right now my problem is that I can’t even attempt to wire according to the triangle patterns! Shay just keeps saying this is all the wire I have this is all that carol gave me. I need to unhook so,e connections first. But when I tap on the connectors it won’t unhook and I have nothing in my inventory to unhook the wires. What do I do?


I’m at the ending, but the ray will only go on for a few seconds.


I need help with the part where u use the hook to play with the wires my thing is boarded up


Do I have to start over


Did you figure this out? I have the same problem! I did something in the wrong order and I’m boarded up.


I just wanted to say thank you so much! This walk through saved me so many times and multiple nervous break downs!


This is game made me want to throw up.


i’ve done everything with Shay but now i,m playing as vella and i can’t find the Hexipal (or whatever it’s called) with the burnmarks. please help me


It is in the hallway. In between the control room and the kitchen


Dear writer, Thank you so much for this all. It helped me a lot. I have one final question though. I am stuck on Vella pushing the button. I did everything exactly how you said. I distracted Hope and Alex (Hope was in the room with the weaver and Alex was downstairs). Shay used Gary and after that I switched back to Vella and tried to push the button. She says: ”Huh, didn’t work that time, but it should have. Alex did you disable my death ray?”. I switched to manual etc. I actually did everything what this and other… Read more »


I’m stuck when hope blocks the nav scarf system because marikai is watching it. I walk into the command room and while marikai is watching the system. I can not leave the room and I can’t do anything in the room, I have waited it for a while and nothing has happened. I have watched many videos but none have turned out the way mine has. I relize you may not see this but if there is any way you could help me that would be great.


Welll… i changed the hexipals wire to the safety one and i gave him the hammer, still when i place him by the drum it just starts to dance instead. I really dunno what to do o.o


nvm i did it wrong c:


Thank you πŸ™‚ !


Thank you very much, this was super useful and very well explained πŸ˜€ !


Won’t let me shoot laser


Cat shoot laser


So I think I used the death ray before I had to so now I can’t use it anymore. Is there any way to fix it?

Arturs Kass

I am stuck in the completely last step. I have tried it a couple times by my own but something was always wrong, now everything was in place but Alex had been disabled my death ray, so it doesn’t work. What now?
