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!

Dude I watched this a year ago. This is definitely THE anthem of the gamer. You made a big call but earned it. Epic song. I'd love to see more work like this. ;-)

Great animation and top song. You gained 5 stars of exp and leveled up!

Nice work.

so many worlds to save, only a life to save a few. luckily there are so many heros to save them all.

I love the song. I love the movie. I really love there's lyrics too!
