One of the trickiest puzzles in Broken Age by Double Fine Productions is untying the knot holding together Harm’ny Lightbeard’s cloud. This guide will explain what to do. If you still need help. Feel free to ask in the comments section.
First, you need Shay to visit Meriloft and climb the ladder to weigh down Harm’ny’s cloud so F’ther can reach the knot. Then have F’ther show him the knot. It may vary for each game.
Tell F’ther you’ll go ask a knot expert for advice. Don’t give him any instructions yet or you’ll end up with a different knot.
Next, visit Carol in Shellmound. Ask her about untying knots and describe the knot to her. Try to describe the knot as well as you can. If you need help, I posted what each one is below. She’ll ask for a writing utensil. So go to Alex’s ship and ask him for his space pencil. Then go back and give it to Carol. She’ll draw a diagram for you.
Take the diagram back to F’ther and try to describe each picture. If you get one wrong, you’ll have to start fresh with a new set of drawings. But if you say that you’re going to get a new diagram right away, you’ll be sent directly to Carol and back and won’t have to walk!
These are the knots and what they can be described as. Please let me know if you find any mistakes.
Like a bucket of fingers:
Like an elephant eating its trunk:
A little bit like you (Carol), strangely enough:
Like a face that’s really a cow udder:
Like a mathematical formula:
Like a lazy pole vaulter:
Like an alligator wrestling a pretzel:
Like a headache wearing a belt:
I haven’t found any that looks like two snakes fighting over a ball of yarn, but I’ll add it if I do.
If you’re having trouble describing the drawings, use the following photos to help you. These are all the options you can get:
Unravel the sweater:
Pull off the fly’s wings:
She loves me, she loves me not…
Make the boat go under the bridge:
Tug the piggy’s tail:
Make the water come out of the cup:
Make the baby play patty-cake:
Tickle the foot:
Pull the finger:
Pull apart the fighting snakes:
Steal the banana:
Poke the clown in the eye:
