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:

the message this video relays is a good one at that we dont play for the game over but rather for the adventure the story and what you take away from it ps/themoreyoulearn sorry but did you watch this or did you skim through it cause you could not be more wrong try to understand what the message is before you go about being a idiot


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Well done.

"You did a good job, you gave it your best, and you are proud of your self!"

If not, you should, great animation and lyrics. Not many flaws here, not that I can notice. I really did like the pixel-style of images. Few pixels, yet so detailed.
