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

A fitting and awesome creation

The pixel-art was made well and it is beautifully synchronized with the song. I like how the transitions you made helped the artistic story progress and you picked a great song to go with the art. I really enjoyed it. I can't find anything that makes it less than a 10 out of 10, although the creepy smile somewhere in the beginning could be a bit scary. :P

Sorry if you wanted more, Newgrounds does not allow more than 10. >.<

Without Words

Man, I really don't know how to express the feeling of being represented as a Gamer in this way . I think I'm gonna cry . I just have one more thing to say...

This truly is the anthem of the gamer

This is my new epic song and anthem forever. This is so true, so incredible, so epic. I love, love, love it to death. It stirs imagination and inspires me towards greater adventures to come. Music is awesome, animation fits perfectly, and the subtitles are a major bonus.
Why is this rated T? It should be rated E. No violence, no swearing, no mature themes of any kind. This is a feel-good song for any gamer, past, future, or present.
