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!

AWESOME song, absolutely love it. everytime, that song gives me a goosebump-flashback to all the great moments i have had with videogames: the playthrough of half-life, my emotional experience with zelda - links awakening, the brilliant and funny time with friends and other people in world of warcraft and all the other stuff. great, fucking great.

Though I wasn't quite part of SNES generation growing up, I still feel that this song resonates with all gamers like ourselves, since the whole concept, feel, and experience of gaming has stayed the same. Thanks for doing what some consider a pastime but what we consider our best times justice. :)
