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!

Music written and performed by Danny Wiessner.
Art by pandamusk, Benjamin A. Smith (Ekublai), and Michael Hruby (Wastedkitten).

I have NEVER

had a newgrounds video that wasn't meant to make you BAWWWWW pull a tear to my eye or actually make me think back to the days I played games with a finite end. Good lord I miss my consoles.

You sir deserve to win the Internet.

BE MY GAMER SONG TILL I DIE. the art was beautiful and the song it self was very awesome. but it's also true to why gamers play games. we play for the end, to have the experience in the first place, not for quick fun or anything else. we take away something more and learn more about ourselves. thats what video games are really all about.

also the pain of your eyes/brain hurting and stomach empty is for only beginner gamers. not for the vets of games.

all i have to say
