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!

fun and entertaining!

Good vid!. Very cool idea for a song. I love the graphics, the topic, and the combo of emotions that your trying to share. Its so bitter sweet at the end of the night at 4am when the game is over, and you must leave that awesome world and return to reality. My only complaint would be the lyrics. I felt myself cringe more than once when the words in your song would have almost no flow to them. Im not saying you have you have to rhyme throughout your song, but sometimes ask yourself "do these lyrics sound good together?"

Anyway. Keep it up! ill be waiting for more from you guys. ill vote 4/5 because of how hard you guys worked. ;)

This song... This FREAKING song stirs emotions deep within me and gives me gossebumps every single time I hear it. Sir, I salute you. You have not only managed to convey such meaning in these few words, you wrapped it in a cocoon of mind shattering sound.
