We had the "in the style of..." theme in mind, but the problem is... if you let each person pick what band and what style they like, it's just the same as a free month (because let's be honest, everyone makes entries influenced by some band or artist), but then again, if we pick a band, for example "Rush Month" (crazy bass, guitar and drums, with a dash of synths), we are really limiting the number of entrants and some people will always try to find loopholes in it.

 

I'm not saying it will never happen but it's hard to work out the logistics behind it.

Let's just call it what it is: You want Neo Turf Masters Month, and so do I.

Do it in place of a free month, but you'll also be critiqued on how you mimic your chosen band's style

And that's about the time that guy ran into me

Nobody likes you when you're Lance or Bill

With many lives still left to beat the game

Why didn't I jump over him

I never even checked my score,

What's my score again, what's my score again?

Alternate option: do entire genres instead of specific bands, like the Jazz Month from a couple years ago. A Ska Month would be rad.

How about some more specific environment months? Like a "Forest month 2: Jungle Boogaloo", "Desert Month", "Mountain, Earth and Cave Month", "Space Month",  and/or "Water Month"?
Or have those been done already?
Also, more Yuukichan's papa and bunbun and...
Ooh! OOoooo~! I've got it!
"Holy Month"
Shrines, holy places,(like Fairy Fountain) Temples, churches, deific altars; anywhere that is specifically holy or at least was specifically holy in the game.
It'd be murky at first, but a little work and it's just "Aw Fein" I'd think.

I fully support an "in the style of" month, given that that's my specialty and I do something like it for most of my DoD entries! I think we don't need to be that strict about it since it's all in good fun anyway. People can just take accuracy into account when they are voting.

Other suggestions I had:

Women video game composers month

Anime games month

Card games month (Pokémon tcg fuck yeah)

Soundtrack mashup month (not sure what to call this but I mean doing like...medleys of tunes from different games. Like requiring entries to have sources from at least two different soundtracks, preferably even two different franchises)

Punk month (there is like almost no VGM punk. Also sub/fusion genres like powerviolence/hardcore/crossover thrash/some grindcore should count or I'll be sad)

No guitars month? I would be sad but it'd be interesting

Solo instrument month? Entries with only one instrument would be cool because it would really get at the heart of "live instrument" aspect of DoD (but solo piano entries would probably just crush everything)

More fresh months would be cool
