Thanks to our partners at @RedBullGaming, the GDQ Hotfix is excited to announce West Coast Weekend! The online event will run December 4th — 6th and feature speedrunners from the US West Coast. Submissions are now closed, thank you for your interest! The schedule will be released on November 20th.
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.
Frame Fatales will be proudly fundraising for Malala Fund again with a new event, Fleet Fatales! Fleet Fatales is an online, all-woman speedrunning event, taking place live on Games Done Quick from November 15th to the 21st (4PM - 12AM Eastern each day). See all the important dates and deadlines on the Frame Fatales page!

Thanks to all of the amazing support from viewers, donors, runners, volunteers, sponsors, staff and more, Games Done Quick held its summer event completely remotely, to the tune of 2.3 million dollars raised for Doctors Without Borders!
We also announced at the end of SGDQ2020 that Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 will be taking place on January 3rd - 10th, 2021. While we don't have more information to announce just yet, keep an eye on our website or our Twitter for updates!

Games Done Quick is a series of charity video game marathons. These events feature high-level gameplay by speedrunners raising money for charity. Games Done Quick has teamed up with several charities in its nine-year history, including Doctors Without Borders and the Prevent Cancer Foundation. We are currently the largest fundraising event globally for both charities!
To date, Games Done Quick has raised over 28 million dollars for charity. We also average over 2000 people in attendance at our events, including staff, volunteers, runners, and attendees just looking to have fun and support the event!
