Summer Games Done Quick.jpg

Summer Games Done Quick is one of our favourite annual events (alongside the other 'Games Done Quick' extravaganza each year) in the world of speedrunning and general gaming awesomeness. It features some of the world's most skilful players rattling through classic games while raising an incredible amount of money.

This year's event is raising money for Doctors Without Borders once again, and our plan is to do an article a day as a little reminder on what's happening and to give an update on its fundraising efforts - at the time of writing it's passed $100,000, though based on past years there's a long way to go yet. Today from a Nintendo perspective, meanwhile, there's a Mega Man block, while later on we'll see The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX and The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures, along with some Castlevania classics. The full schedule is right here.

As always you can head over to the official website to donate, if you'd like, while there's also a Humble Bundle with some PC games.
