Free CC Chiptune Tracks (and questions about free music libraries)

Hi everyone, first time on posting on!

So recently I had a developer acquaintance suggest that I do some royalty-free music as a way to spark some collaboration with devs (and simply contribute to the community cuz gamez r gr8). I'm a composer with a master's degree (who cares, right?) and a few game projects under my belt (much more important), so initially I dismissed the idea, thinking I should be paid for my work. However, my stance is shifting, so I thought I'd dip my toe in the pool by releasing the tracks I wrote for a little 'get-to-know Unity' game project that I did myself.

Here is a link to the .zip file on Google Drive:

If this library is useful for you, and some sound effects to match would also be useful, reach out to me and I'll upload those too (as CC0).

Here is a link to listen on SoundCloud:

Here's a link to the game project in case anyone is interested:

And, of course, this is where you can find out more about me and hear more of my music:

The license these are under is the CC Attribution-ShareAlike.

Now here are the questions I have:

  1. Is this little library useful for anyone? If yes, why? If not, why not?
  2. What makes a free library useful for a game designer? Variety? Consistency?
  3. What's the most efficient/useful platform to share a library such as this?
  4. Which licenses are fine, and which ones render a library unusable/unattractive?
  5. Have you/would you go on to ask a composer of a royalty-free library for an original score?

Thanks so much in advance, and I hope these tracks can be useful to some of you!
