Three Red Hearts is a love letter from me to the Chiptune genre. Growing up surrounded by what is now considered "retro" video game music, Chiptune was incredibly formative to my development as a composer.

The original album can be previewed and downloaded here: http://abstractionmusic.bandcamp.com/album/three-red-hearts

The Prepare to Dev edition strips each song down to a raw WAV file, designed to loop perfectly within any media you import it into.

This pack contains 24 original Chiptune (or Chiptune-inspired) songs. Many of them were created in a program named Famitracker, which is a NES soundchip emulator.

While these songs are listed as pay-what-you-want, if you do plan on making money off your game (either through ads, microtransactions, or direct sales), please donate what you think is fair for this content. <3

Hello! I used your music in a game jam: https://atemly-games.itch.io/harvest-survivor

Thanks :)


this looks awesome, love the big chunky art style you have here :D 


Heyo! I made a lil game using your music. Credits are on the itch page and in the in-game credits! Here's a link if you want to take a look: https://badsprite.itch.io/spectral-overdrive. Thank you for making these songs available! :D


Woah hey this looks amazing! Love the art style and design. Will try to give it a shot tomorrow :D


Hi! Those are some cool tunes! Just to clarify: your license means i can use it privately and commercially but with proper credits right? Name and link to your itch page?

thank you!

Yes, correct! Name and link to itch page. If you do use it commercially, I wouldn't mind a little kick back my way (or to join my Patreon, which has 400+ more songs on it :), but I keep that on the honor system because managing royalties is a huge pain in the butt haha.


Thank you for your reply:) Okay got it:) I normally always give a tip even if something is free. I appreciate all the hard work! 

Yea absolutely! :D I am glad the music is working out for you. Feel free to share your projects when they get posted, I always love to see what things the songs end up in :)

Just to clarify, we do need to credit you if we make a game, correct?

It would be much appreciated to have my name and (if possible) a link to mysebsite somewhere in the credits, yeah :)


Hi, thanks so much for making these awesome tracks available for everyone to use! πŸ˜Š  We used "Princess Quest" as the title theme for our game which we made for Rainbow Jam 2022. πŸŒˆ

I love this cute mashup between the original Mario Bros and Pac Man, this works super great! Thanks for sharing :)

I use your songs in Lowrezjam. It’s my first game jam and I don’t really have resources for music in games. Your songs come in handy and fit my game. I really thank you for that.

here my game

That's a great little game! I love all the mechanics you added with the later levels. It was a bit tough to move diagonally on the level with the sun. Overall it was a fun puzzle game though :D Thanks for sharing!


I always use your songs when I decide to join a game jam last minute and my composer friend is not ready. Here are my 2 newest games with your songs https://pepperboi.itch.io/sacrepeat and https://hmanhere.itch.io/colorless-castle

Thanks for letting me know! These games are great :)


Hey, I just started using your tracks in my  game, https://jaysgame.itch.io/vanguard-monsters they often get stuck in my head even after listening to them while testing for hours, so you're doin something right :D 


So happy to hear you are enjoying the songs! :D Gave a peek to the game page and it looks really cool! Will try to give it a shot this weekend :)


Using this in a small project here on itch, glad I could find it again!

For some reason looking up the name wasn't giving me any hits so I thought I might have picked it up from your website, but I see I did get it here. 

Thank you so much, they have such a great sound. 

I'm happy that you found it again! Thanks for the nice words on the music too, I'm glad you like them! Feel free to link any games you've made using the music, I always love checking 'em out :)

Ah, https://tsukichild.itch.io/sock-dodge 

Ah! Forgot that part haha. After a busy June, I'll be working on making the music mode actually working the way it's intended. Which will be spawning socks to the music, some of the tracks this should be quite exciting. 

Boy that gets hard real fast with multipliers on! Fun game :)


Hi I used your music in one of my games again! This album is so good. Formations!

This is a super cool idea! I'll have to give it a try. I think this was kind of what I wanted my game Pawndemonium to be before I scope creeped it into oblivion πŸ˜…


Wow did not realize you made pawndemonium! I have been meaning to try it. Thank you for the kind words πŸ‘

I  hope you have  fun with it! It has a few bugs I've been trying to find a solution for but they've remained pretty elusive. I'll find 'em some day :D


These are some awesome tracks! Well done!

Thank you! Hope you get some good use out of 'em :D


Love the music! Although some of the tracks don't loop properly? There are definite cut offs. Wondering advice on how to get them to loop properly? Thanks.

Hello! I'll give the files a look. Which files specifically are you having troubles with? Are you converting the files to any other format before putting them in your game?

I am just using the wav files. It's pixel war 2 that I've noticed a hard cutoff, when looping its noticeable. I don't know if its just me or maybe just the song.

I just listened to the WAV file and couldn't find any issues with the loop point. Are you using Unity or some other platform for the development? Have you tried any of the other songs to see if they have the same problem? I'm genuinely curious about this one now :)

Well, it may just be the song itself beginning loudly, so it sounds like it cuts off when it loops. I don't know if there is a way to fade in better or not? I'm using gdevelop for my game engine.

I'm listening to the song on loop, downloaded from the ZIP file on itch, and it sounds fine to me but maybe something else is happening in the engine? If you like, you're welcome to bounce it into an audio editor like Audacity and lower the volume of the intro if you prefer that.

One of your songs fit perfectly for the bitsy gamejam I was trying to finish last minute! Thanks so much!

Love the art and color choices you have with this :D

Hi, I made another game using this album. It's a 2D platformer called Change The Channel. You can play it in your browser here :


Really cute game! I love the art style. :)


Thank you, I put a lot of effort on the art so I really appreciate 😁

Thanks for your music, I used it in my GodotWildjam game: https://djokavex.itch.io/neon-maze

Thanks for the great music. I will use it in my platforming game Castle Skedaddle : https://mantaogames.itch.io/castle-skeddadle

Hey cool! Glad you're getting some good use out of the songs :D I added your project to a collection of other games that use my songs.



Great, thank you !


Hi Ben, just letting you know that the game featuring your music is finished :) 

Awesome, I'll have to check it out!
