I've uploaded chiptune tracks from an unreleased 2017 game jam project. Weird health problems had made music composition (and many other hobbies) hurt me, and I had been afraid to make music for a while because of that pain, but in 2017 I started recovering. It still hurts but I can work around the pain better.
Here are story nibbles for each track, loosely based on the planned story of the old project.

Once an expanse of bright grass and sparkling pools, the plains and life within it were stilled by an artificial winter. Rather than birds and deer, only the crack of shifting ice spoke into the breeze.

The hillside shack caught none of the wind that tore across the plains and afforded shelter that, while not warm, at least allowed them to sleep without fear of freezing to death.

Though their beliefs and societal values were worlds apart, the two groups shared both a dream and an enemy. Even the unnatural chill in the air could not slow their march across the pale wasteland to the jaws of the earth.
On a Limb - https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/886694
She expected fighting against her own family to be difficult, but the past year of hellish trials had frozen something in her. Naivety? Love? She couldn't even feel her convictions anymore, pressing forward numbly, praying that this path was still the "right" one.
Realizing the fate of the world was no longer in her hands, she felt only overwhelming peace as the white and black became one, as she drew one final breath.
