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!

Amazing Art, Song

The song's great on its own, but the animation is what makes this absolutely amazing; the two couldn't possibly go together any better. The art's retro enough to inspire all sorts of nostalgia, and at the same time it's more moving than anything I actually remember from the era it's paying respect to.

Fantastic piece.

Brilliant, does not even describe.

I have nothing to say to critique this or anything negative about it, this was just great very original, well animated, great volume control especially love the older generation game feel... good job and please do more animations in the future that are just as good as this.
