Project Antivent - Day Eighteen

The Dark Spire was a DS game released this year aimed almost solely at the old school market. And by 'old school' I mean 'so old, they refer to single-celled lifeforms as newbies'. Probably the most harder-than-hardcore dungeon crawler I've played since Nethack, The Dark Spire, unsurprisingly, failed to catch on almost anywhere. Which is a shame, since it has an absolutely fantastic soundtrack that demands a wider audience. That the game itself is fun (if obtuse as all hell) is a bonus, really. This is the more sedate Shop theme, a counterpoint of sorts to the standard battle theme, and probably the single most relaxing piece of music in this list.
