Chill out to the 8bit lofi soundtrack

Composer Tad Miller used alchemy to fuse together chiptunes and lofi (low-fidelity). The 15 track OST is available on bandcamp and itch. Go chill and vibe!

About Us

Hello! My name is Daniel Totten, 1/2 of the husband duo behind Appa’s Papas. I originally was on path to be a college professor - getting my PhD in molecular biology and biochemistry from the University of Pittsburgh in 2017 - before I became disillusioned with academia and burnt out. After teaching myself coding during my post-doctoral training, I decided to change careers and become a indie developer. Appa’s Papas is dedicated to creating non-violent, casual games with stories that emphasize mental health and personal empowerment. We want to promote diversity and inclusion in our games - e.g., being queer, we strive to include various identities and sexualities as normal occurrences. We are excited to use our experiences to build hopeful and positive worlds.
