Summer Games Done Quick announces speedrun lineup

Audio player loading…

If you're a speedrunning fan then you should mark June 24 in your calendar, because that's when the annual Summer Games Done Quick charity event is due to kick off. The organisers have just released the full list of runners alongside the games they'll power through, which you can browse here (opens in new tab). I'm particularly looking forward to watching Semanari complete massive RPG Divinity: Original Sin 2 (opens in new tab) in just 40 minutes (the world record, if you're interested, is a breezy 28 minutes (opens in new tab)).

It'll run until July 1, and donations will go to Doctors Without Borders. It follows a record-breaking Awesome Games Done Quick 2018, which raised more than $2.25 million for charity (opens in new tab). Here's a list of the best runs (opens in new tab) from that event.

Summer Games Done Quick takes place in Bloomington, Minnesota this year, and if you want to attend in person it's $65 if you register before May 1. You can sign up here (opens in new tab). For those who can't make it, the runs will be streamed on Twitch (opens in new tab) as per usual.

Thanks, PCGamesN (opens in new tab).
