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:

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great Song

I actually bought it off itunes you are quite talented and the animation looked great especially the women in the tree. Overall it sums up quiet nicely how I feel about video games and its nice to see it shown as an experience rather than a waste of time.


Rated 5 / 5 stars
