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!

Awesome

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.

So Beautiful...

No words to describe it....they should have sent a poet.

quotes aside, this song sums up what it is to be a gamer quite accurately and in such a handsomely epic way at that. The visuals were astounding, the song inspiring, and the message is clear as the sun to any who can see. Great work EKublai, keep it up and and keep making quality work like this, for its flash like this is why i come to newgrounds in the first place.
