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!

A longtime gamer, I know the feeling you conveyd here, from beating the game to the experience to remembering it all! Very well done!

Art was awesome, and I love that you used 16-bit graphics, it added that much more of a vg touch to the tale!

I'll probably have this in my head and recite it word for word by the end of the day.
