It’s time again for the very best reason to stay inside with your eyes glued to a screen in the middle of summer. The best speedrunners in the world gather for Summer Games Done Quick, a nonstop seven-day speedrun marathon benefiting Doctors Without Borders.


Summer Games Done Quick and its January counterpart, Awesome Games Done Quick have become two of the most entertaining gaming events of the year. It’s an endless barrage of entertainment, as players who’ve spent ages mastering their particular game show up to very quickly strut their stuff in the name of charity. It’s like a holiday, only we still have to “work.”

If you’ve not been watching you’ve already missed two days of amazing runs, but you’ve still got a lot of goodness ahead of you. This morning we’ve got the Castlevania block. Later today, indie games. Then on Wednesday my fav0rite part of the event, the Disney game block, with Sonic the Hedgehog leading up to it.


Here’s all of what’s going on Tuesday and Wednesday. (click on the images to enlarge). All times are Eastern.
