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!

Agreeing with InnocentDevil306

Very much so an anthem to gamers far and wide. Impressive work with the artwork too, it reminded me of the same images that pop into mind when playing games like Final Fantasy or Breath of Fire during awesome cutscenes.

Thank you so much for this video. It brings back so many memories of my adventures in saving the world. Every word hit every emotion of a true gamer. Ah! To relive every Zelda, Final Fantasy, Diablo, and Metal Gear. That's is. I gotta go save the world again. 10/10!
