    Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 Goes Online

    Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of the community, Games Done Quick has made the difficult decision to move AGDQ 2021 to an entirely online format and will not feature a live venue. Similar to SGDQ 2020, we will broadcast the event from our studio, with runners participating from the safety of their homes. The broadcast dates will remain the same, with AGDQ 2021 showcasing some of the best speedrunners in the world from January 3rd — 10th, 2021.

    Game Submissions and Volunteer Applications (for Hosts, Donation Processors and Stream Checkers) are now closed, thank you for your interest! Schedule release is planned for November 9th. For more upcoming dates, see the sidebar.
