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:

The song tells a fantastic story, which is so hard to find in any song that still sounds musical. Wonderful job and great music to put the words too.

Excellent Flash.

I tend to find something in most Newgrounds Flashes that I disliked but you have impressively managed to make a flash I can't rate any lower then 10.
