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


Loved the music and the art was amazing. Once you've saved the world, what can a hero do?

Find another world in trouble. Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go do just that :P

This song + the animation

Well done!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

This truly is the anthem of the gamer

This is my new epic song and anthem forever. This is so true, so incredible, so epic. I love, love, love it to death. It stirs imagination and inspires me towards greater adventures to come. Music is awesome, animation fits perfectly, and the subtitles are a major bonus.
Why is this rated T? It should be rated E. No violence, no swearing, no mature themes of any kind. This is a feel-good song for any gamer, past, future, or present.


Rated 5 / 5 stars
