I’ll be honest with you; I gave up before I started. Queue Kevin Mc Cloud, internet music man who makes cool tunes and gives them away just for some credit in your project. I spent an afternoon looking through synth tunes that would fit my game and eventually stumbled across pixel-land, an upbeat mario-esque chip toon that contrasted with the bleak feel of my game wonderfully.
