I don't think we want really any style that sounds like the official audio artists.
No, I think we need to make our own feel and our own style. My advice would be to try and pull from pure inspiration other than previously created songs.
I agree, but it should still be possible to familiarize the style with Sonic music in some way, perhaps by using patterns known to be used, even if some are more obscure than others (being from lesser-known games) but I wouldn't take from Senoue's music, or at least, I would only take example from one song, because his songs are very similar in pattern.
If that makes any sense at all... I'm sure there are proper words for such things as a pattern of notes that fits well together (I'm not talking about a measure) and can be associated with a 'style', as being a familiarity of that style, or at least a known (and preferably favored) artist, but music theory isn't my strong point.
Edit: Hey, do you think this game could get a tutorial level? With the story setup right now, Sonic and Tails wake up in a forested area, so why not use that as a tutorial level? Unless the controls are mappable?...
