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

Almost twelve years later, and I still remember this song with a great deal of fondness. I still get pins and needles listening to it.

Catchy enough that I still remember it a decade later, so I think I can say it's a pretty good one.


I found this to be pretty "INTENSE" you have some amazing ideas and you have presented them well here in this piece, the "GRAPHICS" are really nice, I would suggest throwing in some fancy effects onto this on those little impact visual points, You have Developed something interesting here, So with a flick like this I can see changes make this better but sofar you have all grounds covered and whatnot. you have Earned some credit with thsi reviewer.

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)
