Every time the communities behind Speed Demos Archive and Speed Runs Live get together for their twice-annual Games Done Quick charity marathons, we always expect it to be bigger and better than the last. However, Awesome Games Done Quick 2014 blew all of our expectations out of the water by raising more than $1,000,000 USD for the Prevent Cancer Foundation in only a week’s time. How did they manage this incredible feat? By performing some of the best speedruns ever captured on Twitch.
We polled the office and collected some of our favorite runs that have occurred over the past week. For more information and to donate to their cause (There’s still time!), check out GamesDoneQuick.com. Don’t see your favorite clip below? Drop it in the comments!
Awesome Games Done Quick 2014 is nearly upon us!
Speed Demos Archive presents Awesome Games Done Quick 2014, a 7 day (January 5-11) video game speedrunning marathon benefiting the Prevent Cancer Foundation. See over 150 hours of new and old games done quick as they get obliterated by top players from all across the world. Donate for chances to win prizes, name characters, have the runners complete challenges, or even add whole games to the schedule. AGDQ2013 raised over $400,000 for a good cause – join in this year so we can smash this record and show the world the power of the gaming community!
Twitch is also thrilled to be supporting AGDQ2014 with a donation incentive. For every 1000 viewers at the stream’s maximum concurrent viewership, we will donate $50. That means if the stream tops out at 25,000 max concurrent viewers, it equals a $1,250 donation. 50,000 max ccu = $2,500 donation. And a max donation of $5k if 100,000 concurrent viewers are achieved.
