About This Game

Get comfortable, put your headphones and dive into a butterfly's dream
A Butterfly's Dream is an experience to contemplate and relax. There are no enemies, there are no goals, no rush. Just fly around, take some pics and enjoy a beautiful stylized world.

A relaxing experience awaits for you

Be a butterfly in a living and stylized world.

Inspired by classical Chinese landscape painting

Every place you look at could be a beautiful and calm picture.

Explore a living world

Fly through the sky, into the woods, over the waters, land on trees and rocks.

Take a pic of nature

Take pictures of landscapes and wildlife in a living world. If the game is too boring for you, try to photograph all the hidden stuff! There are over 100.

A little bit of philosophy

Find Master Chuang Tzu and meditate about the nature of reality.

The Zen Koan Series
A Butterfly's Dream is based on a Zen Koan about Master Chuang Tzu, a great Taoist philosopher. A Koan is a story, dialogue, question, or statement which is used in Zen practice to provoke the "great doubt" and to practice or test a student's progress in Zen.
