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:

Oh My..... Ahgod

This made me cry, honestly it did I'm not even joking. This made me think about all of the games I've beaten, than made me think about what's gonna happen to me and the game after. It makes me think will there be a sequel? will I have enough money? WILL I GET TO SAVE THE WORLD AGAIN?! Good work mate, really good work.

This was amazing!

I hardly ever see such a well worded music video with such perfect images to go along with it. And this is the absolute truth, as well! This may be the greatest, most beautiful flash I've ever seen. Thank you so much for crafting this master piece.

Amazing song, and great, really great work with the animation, from start to the end of the credits. Normally, as I see it at least, the music gives most of the experience, helping the animation seem cooler and better... so it's really awesome to see the animation giving something back ;).

I'd say the experience of watching this is equally thanks to the audio, and visual. Fantastic work, indeed! :D

WOW! It is most def that feeling of an EPIC HEROIC Tale finished that leaves you feeling all tingly inside, then at the same time disappointed that it is over. But thats why we game on finding new adventures and Epicness to dive into!!! This Is A Great Tribute To Us All!!! Thank You for reminding us all why we are GAMERS!!!!
