This year's Summer Games Done Quick, an annual speedrunning charity event, will be taking place from June 23 to June 30. It'll be raising money for Doctors Without Borders and if you're not in Bloomington for the actual event you'll still be able to watch the livestream, as well as catch up with the highlights when they're inevitably uploaded.

The complete list of games at this year's event is live (opens in new tab) and it's a long one, but some highlights include Borderlands 2 (co-op), Cave Story, ClusterTruck, Deltarune, Diablo 2: Lord Of Destruction, Final Doom: TNT Evilution, and Resident Evil 2. A couple of RTS games have also made the list, and it'll be interesting to see Red Alert 3 and the Protoss campaign of Starcraft: Brood War receive the speedrun treatment.

Keep an eye on the Games Done Quick website (opens in new tab) for more details closer to the event. If you're interested in going, here's the attendance guide (opens in new tab).

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games (opens in new tab). He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun (opens in new tab), The Big Issue, GamesRadar (opens in new tab), Zam (opens in new tab), Glixel (opens in new tab), Five Out of Ten Magazine (opens in new tab), and Playboy.com (opens in new tab), whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
