Welcome to World 6: Obligatory Forest Level

Why is it that almost every video game has a forest level? Perhaps it's because of their diversity and the many feelings that can be expressed through their role in any story. They can be gentle places filled with light, they can be dark and foreboding, and in most cases they are places of mystery where danger or delight could be hiding just around the corner. Obligatory Forest Level explores all of these facets with classic music from Chrono Trigger, many Final Fantasies, Pokemon, Banjo-Kazooie and tons more. This is an 18 minute epic featuring our guest flautist Ingrid Cheung.
