Awesome Games Done Quick 2019 Starting Today

All Proceeds to the Prevent Cancer Foundation

Speedruns galore! Awesome Games Done Quick 2019 is starting today and good golly there’s already some impressive feats on display. If you’re the sort who delights in live streaming talent, you won’t be able to look away. Even writing this article has required some rigorous self-discipline on my part.

You can check out the complete schedule for the event right here. Upcoming highlights include Sonic the Hedgehog, Tomb Raider, Shadow of the Colossus and Virtual Hydlide. If you’re not familiar with that last one, look it up for a few laughs and/or horrified gasps. Video games look so amazing now!

The whole event will run from today (right now in fact) to January 12th, with Super Metroid as the final speedrun of the week. All donations and proceeds will go to the Prevent Cancer Foundation. For more information on the event, their sponsors and the PCF, you can check out their website. Aside from Virtual Hydlide, I’m looking forward to seeing people play all my favorite SNES games really fast. Super Mario RPG in under four hours? A Link to the Past in under two (and with a single heart no less)? Sign me right up!
