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!

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

This is so Awesome. The Art was Amazing, And so was the music,, but the best of all were the Lyrics...

So damn, true, on every single sentence, I rarely ever feel touched. But this is one movie that made me feel really good, somewhat proud of games, myself and human life...

I don't know, what came over me, But it felt great. And the lyrics.. it's like you were telling my story...

So good... thank, thank, thank you very much.

Awesome song, dude!

THAT would be my favorite video game of all time. It reminds me so much of the ending to The Bard's Tale...

Special

The first entry for the week is certainly amazing, but this one song and animation are just special for a gamer in indescribable ways. 5/5, 10/10, added to favorites.

Thanks. Yeah, it's kind of hard to compete against THAT.
