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!

Music written and performed by Danny Wiessner.

This is horrible! How am I supposed to criticise this!?!? I can't find a single flaw - the animation is smooth(even on the antique I call a computer), the sounds were synchronysed, the song was incredible and it perfectly explained why we gamers play. It's almost too good to be true.
