Alternative Cuts – Danny Wiessner – The World is Saved.

10 Aug

The World is Saved is the new epic song and anthem for video game fans. This collaborative effort from IGN’s Podcast Beyond community came about when IGN’s own Ryan Clements pulled together a small team of volunteers to animate a video to go along with Danny Wiessner’s latest single for Podcast Beyond Episode 200 in which the video made it’s debut.

The song tells the journey of gaming and everything that goes along with it, that can be summed up with the awesome line:

At the end of it all
gamers play what we play
not for GAME OVER
but rather for what we take away!

The World is Saved single is available for purchase on iTunes.
