Summer Games Done Quick Begins Tomorrow


Summer Games Done Quick, another charity drive done by the folks of Awesome Games Done Quick, begins tomorrow at 2pm EST (11am PST). The charity, which is to raise money for Doctors Without Borders, is a five-day straight marathon of game speed runs done back to back non-stop to raise money. The whole thing can be streamed live from this site, and the runs themselves will usually be available on YouTube in a month or two.

You can see the full schedule of games right here, along with who will be doing the speed run, the conditions of the run, how long the run should take, and any announced prizes. If you donate a certain amount of money (each item is in a different price bracket), you’ll be entered in a raffle to win an item. The marathon kicks off tomorrow with Okami HD. Please note, the times listed on the site are local to whatever your computer’s time is set.

One announced prize is this really killer Twilight Princess poster set, which is set to be offered during the runs of The Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link on Saturday the 27th at 1:15pm and 2pm EST, respectively. The donation threshold hasn’t been announced yet so you’ll have to tune in to see how to get them!

I’m definitely tuning in for Zelda II. I just have to see how the game can be beaten in an hour and a half without the use of a Game Genie. I’m also looking forward to the Sonic Adventure DX run on Friday. With how glitchy that game is I’m sure it’ll be very entertaining. What games tickle your fancy? Any prizes really jump out at you? Let me know in the comments!
