The Anthem of the Gamer.

The World is Saved is a new epic song and anthem for video game fans. Made in the pixel-art style of SNES (Super Nintendo) cutscenes, this video was a collaborative effort from IGN's Podcast Beyond community. IGN's Ryan Clements pulled together a small team of volunteers to animate a video for Danny Wiessner's latest single. The video debuted at the end of the live recording of Podcast Beyond Episode 200, which can be viewed here: es/118/1186511p1.html

Please support Danny by purchasing his song! Now on Itunes!

I believe a round of applause in order...

There's nothing I can really nitpick at in this flash. It was well executed in every area. So cheers to you and your brilliance, may it carry you far!

I truly enjoyed this because this really got to me. A lot of people never got why I was so upset when someone erased a saved of something I had without my consent. It's pretty much summed up by this flash: it's more the time spent, the experience, that was worth it all.

I should know this well since I'm a very RPG advent player (WoW, Phantasy star episodes 1,2, Universe, and Portable 2, Pokemon: All versions, etc.) So the time spent means alot to someone like me.

This is a video I will always enjoy, thanks for putting it here on Newgrounds!
