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:

Just finished Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. Needed to watch this video again. It was all I could do to keep from shedding a tear. The struggle is real.

This reminds me of Pokémon X and Y because you saved the Pokémon world and a man from their ultimate demise. The man that had a belief. The man that made that belief come to life... Lysandre.

EKublai responds:

And the world is saved!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Dear Mr EKublai:

I've got this stuck in my head for ten days. Well done you complete bastard.
The song and animation is great and very relatable indeed.

EKublai responds:

Haha, thanks man!

I'd not long just finished another playthrough of Kingdom Hearts 2 and this song perfectly captures my feelings right now. Truely a flash for the ages.
