Awesome Games Done Quick 2022 is a couple of months away and now you can check out the games that will be featured in this charity speedrunning event.
Awesome Games Done Quick is organised by Games Done Quick which, while not a charity itself, organises speedrunning marathons to raise money for various charities. As was the case last year, AGDQ 2022 will be raising money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. Last year the event raised over $2.5 million dollars, running as an online event.
Next year’s event will, again, be online only, due to the current ongoing pandemic. It will run from Jan 9th to Jan 16th and, with the exception of the first and last days, runs all day. The schedule, released yesterday, reveals the wide range of games that’ll be at the event. You can check out the full schedule here, but here are just a few of the titles the speedrunners will be trying to rush (or glitch) through:
- Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
- Metal Gear Solid
- Super Mario Galaxy
- Tetris Attack
- Mario Kart Wii
The schedule also details some of the individual challenge and conditions, eg what percentage of a game needs to be completed. You’ll be able to watch the speedruns via the official Games Done Quick website, and gawp in awe at the sheer skill on display
You can find out more from Games Done Quick’s website. The event begins Jan 9th 2022 at 4:30PM GMT, though if you view the schedule it should auto-convert to your local time.
