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!

What's going on newgrounds? I'm the only one who find this flash gay? C'mon we're all gamers here, but I don't feel myself "hero" or something like that when I finish a game or I stay awake until morning just to do it. I'm no hater, so I gave 6 just for the decent animation and the pretty good music, though I don't see the point why we, gamers, should recognize ourselves in something so exaggerated. The real Heroes do something to make the world a better place IN REAL LIFE.

nice song and a great story

a very good story about video game's and how some feel when playing them when the game end's it a start for a new being.

A sad and also happy reality.

I´m a avid gamer and soon, a game designer... games are AWESOME, much more than a movie can be nowdays in any form... but when gamers like me come to reality again, the life at the game changed the world, but sadly, not your own.

I say... a truly masterpiece of music, art direction and animation this flash was... yes yes...

but the "low" score is because that I think the MOST IMPORTANT PART missing here is that gamers CAN CHANGE YOUR OWN WORLD, GET IN BIG ADVENTURES , SAVE PEOPLE and BE A TRUE HERO... but this time for REAL. In any way YOU CAN.

Just like the games, it´s AWAYS up to you.
