Hello, my name is Peter Valencia, and I'm a 3D artist for indie games from California, USA. When I first got my Rift DK2, I was blown away by the level of immersion it brought to the user. I immediately became inspired to create a VR experience that paid tribute to a game very dear to me, my favorite game of all time, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.What is Star Hill, you ask?
It’s the place where wishes come to be born… and come true! Here you will find wishing stars that reveal the heartfelt wishes of residents from all over the Mushroom Kingdom. Their hopes and dreams are revealed to you as you explore the demo.
This demo will appeal most to fellow fans of the game. However, even if you have never played Super Mario RPG, you may still enjoy this! You won't understand some of the references, but the environment in the demo is very unique compared to other demos you may have tried, so I welcome you to give it a shot regardless! (I welcome you to get the original SNES game as well, if you enjoy this demo. It is considered by many to be one of the best games (and RPG's) of all time. You can get it as a Virtual Console title from Nintendo)
The demo is very kid-friendly; there is nothing frightening, or dangerous to the player, so this is a Rift demo you can feel safe showcasing to younger audiences. If you fall off the platforms in the demo, you simply respawn again. I hope this demo brings a smile to someone's face out there!

Note: The 64 bit version is a development build so you have access to the command line. This is so that you can tweak any settings as needed, like vsync, etc. You can find a full list of commands here
. The 32 bit build does not have command line features, but is less likely to crash or have bugs.
Please feel free to report any bugs. I am not a programmer at all (I made this demo entirely with Blueprints), but I plan to add more features to this demo in the future if time allows - like more cameos of characters from the original game.
