Summer Games Done Quick 2014

Zweimal im Jahr trifft sich die Community von Speed Demos Archive zu einem Speedrunning-Marathon und zerlegt dabei ein Spiel nach dem anderen in Rekordzeit. Aber nicht nur so zum Spaß, sondern für einen guten Zweck: Beim letzten Event (Awesome Games Done Quick 2014) wurden sage und schreibe über 1 Million $ an Spendengeldern für die Krebsforschung gesammelt!

Heute Abend startet Summer Games Done Quick, und alle Einnahmen kommen Ärzte ohne Grenzen zugute – einer internationalen Hilfsorganisation, die seit mehr als 40 Jahren medizinische Nothilfe in Krisen- und Kriegsgebieten leistet. Der Marathon soll eine ganze Woche dauern und insgesamt stehen über 150 Spiele auf dem Plan. Von Mario, Donkey Kong, Sonic, Zelda, Castlevania, Mega Man bis Final Fantasy ist für jeden Geschmack etwas dabei.


Wario would like to take a moment to tell everyone about something really really cool that Wario really loves. It’s called AGDQ, Awesome Games Done Quick, and it’s a week-long video game speedrunning marathon with the goal of completing video games as fast as possible live while raising half money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. so far they’ve raised over $60,000, and their goal for the week is half a million. At the moment of this posting, they’ve just started Banjo-Kazooie, but they’ll be playing over a hundred different games over the week, all of which are listed on this schedule.

Wario highly recommends you tune in and check it out if you want to see some of your favorite games played in unique, incredible, and absurd ways. The runners generally conduct themselves very professionally during the broadcast, so you’re unlikely to hear anything nasty said by the people present, but you may want to hide the chat. That said, it’s a lot of fun to watch and Wario highly enjoys it, and Wario hopes some of Wario’s followers will enjoy it too. WAWAWAWAWA
