I'm sure there have been a bunch of threads like this over the years, but I didn't see any recent ones, so here it is.

 

Bomberman Month (super underrated series, especially for music)

Vocal Month (entries must have vocals of some kind, not necessarily limited to singing)

Licensed Games Month (games based on TV/movies/anime/etc.)

Origins Month (games released the year you were born)

21st Century Month (games released no earlier than 2000)

 
I'll probably have more, but that's enough from me for now. How about you guys?

Copying all of my ideas from this thread:
 
http://www.dwellingo...c.php?f=7&t=231
 

ROMhack Month - only original music from ROMhacked versions of games allowed.

Food Month - games or levels with food as a central theme (i.e. Pokémon Stadium's sushi level, Yoshi's Cookie, etc.)

Eroge Month - music from stuff like dating sims, RPGs with sexual elements, etc.

Farming Month - music from games like Harvest Moon, Innocent Life, Rune Factory, Stardew Valley, or even farm-themed areas in games (Lon-Lon Ranch, stuff like that)

Menu Month (Title Screen Month?) - music from video game or console menus or startup screens, à la GameCube startup, PSX/PS2/PS3, Metroid Prime title screen, password screens (yes I know Password Month happened)

BioWare Month - music from games developed by BioWare.

"12-bit Month"? Games like Shovel Knight, Cave Story, etc with mostly NES-like art and music but larger colour palettes and whatever (aka just "new 8-bit games").


Eroge month would be so full of Sharp X68000 source material lmao

Clone Month - Games that are/were obviously just clones of other games, whether earlier in development or even upon release. The Great Gianna Sisters, Azure Striker Gunvolt, even those new horror games that came out after P.T. (coughresidentevilsevencough)

Just letting you guys know that a lot of the themes from the last few years have been picked from forum suggestions. But have in mind, there's a very limited number of non-free months in a year, so you may have to wait a long time for your theme to get picked. :)

VGMITSO (video game music in the style of...) like that XOC album. You have to pick a band and a style and cover a game as though it were that band.

This is a great idea

it would be even better if you didn't get to choose the band, but had to draw one at random... and there are no metal bands in the pool.
