So I'm trying to make a good paint app for GBA Jam 2022 and I would like to have some background music for it. I'm looking for something chill, but not too droning, like Mario Paint or Animal Crossing. My programing setup is all custom using only a gcc cross compiler.

When I was 12 I played a roguelike called POWDER on my DS.
It's the one 'traditional' roguelike that really clicked with me. Where others felt overwhelming, I'd come back to POWDER each year and get just a little bit better every time.
Today, 14 years later, I finally beat it. Words cannot describe this weight that has been lifted from my shoulders!
Thank you, Jeff, for making such a beautiful, cruel and relentlessly challenging little game.
