The Musical Instruments Playable in the Butterfly's Dream


In the Butterfly’s Dream, we designed several puzzles inspired by ancient Chinese musical instruments: Qin, Bianzhong, and Dizi. Let's take a look! All screenshots listed below are work in progress.


This Qin puzzle is inspired by an ancient seven-string zither, named Guqin (古琴)[1]. Guqin is favored by scholars in ancient China and often represents high culture. The quiet sounds of guqin are great for meditation and zen experiences.
