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:

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Very good!

I really liked the visuals. Also it is very recognizable and relatable. All in all, it was very good.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


I noticed the art was a little off now and then, but then again it wouldn't have been what it was if you weren't striving for the detailed image.
I don't think there's a music video out there that i could possibly relate to this much, and i'm saying this as a very passionate gamer.
thanks to you and the many people who helped you do this, i can feel proud of my hobby and happy that i spent so much time looking for the right castle where the princess might be, scouring through all those dungeons to find the masters sword and laying waste to all those demons form hades, so that i could destroy the God of war and so on and so forth.
The God of Soda has blessed you.

I don't really like pixelated animations, bu the song and the animation is really good on this one, good job!

I gotta admit, this probably isn't the best user created audio in the world, but it has it's unique style of rhythm to it which catches peoples' attention. I'm mostly looking for new, creative songs that don't necessarily sound like another popular song and make you glad you were able to listen to an innovative attempt to spice up NG. I gotta say man, it shows when effort is put into anything...and it should in this case. Keep it up, the perfect song is at reach.
