We haven’t seen a speedrun event this whole decade, but Games Done Quick is ready to rectify this dad joke-worthy lead as Awesome Games Done Quick 2020 will take place this Sunday, January 5. The event will run 24 hours each day until January 12, with over 130 games represented including recent favorites like Untitled Goose Game and The Outer Worlds.
Celebrating its 10 year anniversary, AGDQ 2020 will feature more than 130 games showcased by the world’s most talented speedrunners. The event begins on Sunday, January 5 at 11:30 a.m. EST and will conclude on Sunday, January 12, 2020.
Awesome Games Done Quick is a week-long, 24-hour speedrunning marathon where gamers beat video games as quickly as possible, all while supporting Prevent Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to the prevention and early detection of cancer.
