I replied to a post on Facebook regarding a David Bowie game.

Would love to take the approach used by Date East Time Machine and improve on it. Make it a mission based or something and you have to move through the decades. Bowie's music would be decade specific and play in the background. He has so many GREAT songs. And of course, when you are in the 60s or 70s, there would be real chimes, maybe even make the display b&w in the 60s. Colour, I think, was common by 70s.
