I may take the project farther and create a secondary version that contains Mario himself and Bowser.
But I will start with the basics first.
The project's story has taken a turn. With still plenty of room for change. The project seems to be following a more dark feel for Wario's Forest, Taking the vibe from Mario Land 2 and how Mario's Castle became dark and sinister when Wario took over. I mean we are talking about a Forest ruled by Wario and his monsters. Sunshine and blue skies seems opposite to what Toad/Mario would have to endure while fighting their way through.
