Speed Demos Archive, the home to video game speed runs, is proud to present the fourth annual speed running marathon: Awesome Games Done Quick 2014. It is a 7-day online event (from January 5th-11th) to raise money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation, streamed live for you to watch!
Prevent Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that saves lives through cancer research, education and community outreach. 100% of your donations go toward supporting Prevent Cancer Foundation in its mission.
Featuring over 140 games, speed runners will play continuously in order to collect donations for Prevent Cancer Foundation, our partner for this event. During the marathon, donations enter you into various prizes, and can be used to determine the outcome of bidding wars! The various prizes and bidding wars can be found in the AGDQ2014 schedule below.
We now have a brand new (albeit barebones) registration page for those who wish to see the marathon in person. You do not need to be a speedrunner or a part of our community! The cutoff date for registration is December 27th. There is a registration fee, which is also due on the 27th. In addition, our game schedule is already filled, so those looking to run a game at the marathon will have to wait until next time.
Watching and joining in on the action is easy! Just head to the Speed Demos Archive website or the Games Done Quick homepage on January 5th, at 12PM EST (GMT-5)! An embedded video player, a chat window, and directions for how to donate will be right there on the page. It's as simple as that! So mark your calendar, and don't miss a second.
The full schedule with estimates is available now!
Promote our marathons by using our logos and materials! Spread it to your preferred social media network, hand it out on the street, spread it any way you see fit!
Tweet-length, use it anywhere you see fit!
