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!

Great homage to RPG games!

Very, very good! The graphics and music were excellently done! I also found the lyrics to be catchy. It's a nice homage to the RPG genre. It reminds me of the days when I'd play "Final Fantasy VIII" nonstop, until I completed the game. Therefore, I can definitely relate to the character in this flash movie. One of the best videogame-based submissions I've seen in a while! All my 5 r belong to this!

Purely Brilliant.

This is a song about what we all do, why we're all here in hopes to save the world.
How everything is pressed together into one big conclusion and you wonder what it's like after.

That push, the push to be the hero who saves the world and gets to see what happens after.. it's our dream

Our hope.

Holy cr*p, that was one amazing song. I had shiver up and down my spine. Makes me want to dust off my old controllers and go save the world
