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: http://ps3.ign.com/articles/118/1186511p1.html

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

OH THANK YOU!

For the first half of the song I was like, "Yep... that's me after every game..."

...but the end pointed out something super-important that a lot of us miss when we experience that post-ending depression. That was really uplifting. I totally need to take this to heart when I beat Mass Effect 3.

The pixel animation was cool. Transitions were creative, and the way they were drawn was believable for 16-bit cutscenes.

Great music.

The situation between real life and video game. Reminds everyone about the cruel reality after the victory in virtual world.

Deeper than anything else on Newgrounds

I think I could apply every line of this to various situations of life, not just video games.

But even about video games, This was absolutely incredible. I can honestly, not through peer pressure, give this a 10. Even the pixily graphics fit well. I don't know if you meant the art that way or better, but it turned out incredible.

Thank you so much for this Jewel, I hope there's a download soon.
