Once again, Awesome Games Done Quick will be going online, from January 9th to the 16th. We reached this decision after much deliberation and analysis of the risks involved with holding an in-person event. We have come to the conclusion that there is still too much danger and uncertainty stemming from COVID-19. This prevents us from holding an in-person event that meets our strict safety standards.
We wish to express our deepest thanks for the community's support and patience as we continue to evaluate the ever-changing environment and work together in pursuit of a return to in-person events in the future.
Game submissions are now closed. Volunteer submissions for hosting, donation processing, and stream checking are also closed.
Flame Fatales 2021, the all-women speedrunning event, has come to a close, having raised over $125,000 for Malala Fund!
Once again, thank you to all the staff, volunteers, runners and donors who helped make this fledgling event grow to record heights! Be sure to check back in the coming months for details on the next Frame Fatales event!
SGDQ2021 has concluded, with a total of over $2.9 million raised for Doctors Without Borders! This sets a new record for GDQ's online events!
Thank you to all the staff, runners, volunteers, and donors who helped to make this event such a success. It wouldn't be possible without the continued support from all of you and the entire speedrunning community.
If you missed a run, or want to watch some again, be sure to check out our YouTube channel, where we have uploaded all of the runs from the event!
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 34 million dollars for charity. We also average over 3000 people in attendance at our events, including staff, volunteers, runners, and attendees just looking to have fun and support the event!
