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 2.5 / 5 stars

A sad and also happy reality.

I´m a avid gamer and soon, a game designer... games are AWESOME, much more than a movie can be nowdays in any form... but when gamers like me come to reality again, the life at the game changed the world, but sadly, not your own.

I say... a truly masterpiece of music, art direction and animation this flash was... yes yes...

but the "low" score is because that I think the MOST IMPORTANT PART missing here is that gamers CAN CHANGE YOUR OWN WORLD, GET IN BIG ADVENTURES , SAVE PEOPLE and BE A TRUE HERO... but this time for REAL. In any way YOU CAN.

Just like the games, it´s AWAYS up to you.

Rated 2 / 5 stars


Look bro, I'm gonna level with you. You did a good job for what it's supposed to be and everything, but I would never dare watch this with another human being present. It's just way too dorky.


Rated 2 / 5 stars


the animation is quite nice, i really enjoyed how you made it look retro however the song lyrics were really really really gay and i feel embaressed for anyone who can remotely relate to them. your a good animator though

Lonely Shut-in Anthem; Pick better msg

I stopped awtching this 20 secnds in; this guy has really bad teeth, bloodshot eyes, and lives in a flat by himself; This is not something to celebrate.

I didn't think I need to clarify the obv, This guy is a shut-in, and this song is so awful. The animation isn't bad, butthis doesn't reflect anything admirable -- It's like Chaimazu said, all this guy is doing is "jerking off". Idk how you'd feel "rocked" by this message/movie/song, if this guy is such a hardcore loser.

you should make a sequel where he sells all his games.

Thank you for noting that you didn't even watch it.
