Summer Games Done Quick returns in July
Games Done Quick has confirmed that its next speedrunning marathon, Summer Games Done Quick 2021, will begin on July 4th.
The weeklong event runs until July 11th and will raise money for charity. The charity benefiting from the event and the official games list will be shared “at a later date.”
Similar to Awesome Games Done Quick 2021, the event will be held entirely online. Players interested in taking part can submit their entries through the Games Done Quick website from March 31st until April 11th.
Back in January, Awesome Games Done Quick managed to raise more than $2.75 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. To date, more than $31 million has been raised for charities, including Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières, Prevent Cancer Foundation, Direct Relief, AbleGamers, Malala Fund, and Organization for Autism Research.
