Highlight of the Week: Toughest puzzle ever - Solved!

The hero of Unearthed has a problem. It's not just that he's in a rough-looking Saudi Arabian Uncharted rip-off and currently has very bandy legs in his unfortunate pre-alpha state. No, it's that he has the mother of all puzzles facing him down, and if he doesn't think fast - like, Einstein sliding down a greased-up lightning bolt in a zero-air-resistance environment fast - he's going to die! Probably. Maybe. To be fair, we're not really sure what will happen if he doesn't solve the puzzle, actually. But whatever. He needs to do it.

He has a fountain. That fountain is missing four bits of piping. Those four bits of piping need to be reinstalled in order to make the fountain work. But where could they be!?

This man is a genius...

    I didn't know there would be spoilers :(

    It's official, I have been riveted.

    Naughty Dog should be afraid. VERY afraid...
  • purple_omlet - July 2, 2011 3:46 a.m.

    WAIT A SECOND! Is he playing with two controllers? How is that even possible?
  • FIVE - July 2, 2011 2 a.m.

    That was so intense that I had an asthma attack shorty after watching.
  • Jasman - July 1, 2011 7:46 p.m.

    The pipe pieces didn't even glow! Poor game design...
  • MyCoolWhiteLies - July 1, 2011 6:55 p.m.

    But where's the cat-hair mustache?
  • waitingforCharlietosnap - July 1, 2011 6:50 p.m.

    Dammit. I hate when you watch a walkthrough and they do the puzzle so expertly, you still don't know how they do it. I'll never beat the game at this rate.
  • The_Tingler - July 1, 2011 6:09 p.m.

    I'm certain there's a cat mustache involved, I just can't see where though.
  • sirdilznik - July 1, 2011 5:36 p.m.

    Wait, so you combine the broken idol head + egg yolk with the alembic and you give the produced extra crunchy toaster pastry to the mountain yeti? After that I still can't find the missing fountain parts though.
  • QWERTYCommander - July 1, 2011 4:46 p.m.

    How the hell did he solve that?
  • garnsr - July 1, 2011 4:21 p.m.

    Unwhated 3 now? This is clearly the game to get. Where can I preorder?
  • ZDrummer731 - July 1, 2011 3:28 p.m.

    OMG thank you. I needed a walkthrough for this! I couldn't find one ANYWHERE! I've been stuck on this part for the longest freaking time. Sarcasm, by the way.
  • MassBlinkEffect - July 1, 2011 3:18 p.m.

    WHAT surely this comes with a tutorial? or an ask madden...
  • centrip - July 1, 2011 3:12 p.m.

    At least the water's nicely done.
  • Sjoeki - July 1, 2011 2:59 p.m.

    He is a genius, I would have needed a walkthrough to complete that puzzle! Also that "press E to pickup fountain" line is awesome, it reminded me of the whole "press X to JASON" thing, ah good times
  • ParanoidAndroid - July 1, 2011 2:44 p.m.

    Nate Drake laughs heartily! Seriously, this is how they show off their crappy ripoff?

    After seeing this man's feat, I feel like I can trust the future of all mankind in his hands. He is the key to discovering limitless, efficient, renewable energy and, with him in charge, we'll be sailing the stars in less than a decade. Oh yeah, and world peace.
