Summer Games Done Quick 2020 wrapped up its weeklong speedrunning marathon yesterday, August 23rd, with the organization announcing that another successful total had been raised for Doctors Without Borders. The event gained 33,672 donations from viewers worldwide, making for a total of over $2.3 million.
 


 
For those of you yearning for more stats, the SGDQ donation tracker reveals that there were 20,461 donors who made an average donation of $68.75, as well as 148 speedruns with 159 prizes given out.

The GDQ team also announced the next two upcoming events: Fleet Fatales will air from November 15th-21st, and Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 through January 3rd-10th, 2021.
 


 
If you missed any of your favorite games being streamed live, all of the speedruns are available to watch on the Games Done Quick YouTube channel. Participants blitzed through a ton of great Nintendo games, old and new, during the event, including Super Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, Super Metroid, and Pokémon Shield. If you’re looking for something more obscure, there was even a speedrun of Virtual Boy Wario Land.

Congratulations to everyone involved! While the streams have ended, it’s not too late to make a donation if you’d like to support Doctors Without Borders (an international network of medical professionals who aim to provide care and medical aid around the globe).

When he's not playing games, Reece is usually reading Punisher comics, delving helplessly into the weirdest depths of anime and manga, or spending time with his cocker spaniel Gracie -- the goodest girl ever!
