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!

Finally an anthem for us

Beautifully done from start to finish. The art and animation were beautifully synched with the song and it all felt very cohesive. Amazing stuff, I'll be buying the single on iTunes as well.
