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!

Fantastic song, gave me goose bumps first time I heard it years ago. Still brings a smile to my face today.This captures exactly why I play games, and why I always will. Keep the love going.

This video is seven years old, but still AWESOME. Kind of reminds me why I play games like Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite over and over. (the story always feels a little different each time)

Great animation
Great tunes
Great lyrics

I also liked that you used something as shadow of colossus in this =)

EKublai responds:

Thanks a bunch. Tons of Shadow of the Colossus love in this.

This song inspired me to become a game developer. I still listen to this all the time, it just reminds me of a time when the internet, and people in general, were... a little less plastic. This song is practically something mythical by this point in my mind, and sometimes, and I know this sounds a little weird, it almost feels like some kind of ethereal thing that doesn't really exist, because it's just so delicate and so well executed that it can't be a reality, and then I just come back here and listen to it and it brings a smile to my face every time. Thanks for making such a cool thing!

EKublai responds:

Wow. Thank you so much!
