Twice a year there is a huge event called Games Done Quick, An event to raise money for Charity. I’ve been watching these events for 2 years now and how amazing it was. So let’s look back on the latest Awesome Games Done Quick!
It was January 7th and the time was finally there. The start of AGDQ 2018. A 7 days long Speed running event where they want to raise money for charity: The Prevent Cancer Foundation. Unfortunately I couldn’t watch the opening of this amazing event. But I was watching some amazing speedruns every moment I had some free time. It was a week of short nights, fun games and most of all incredible runs! If you really love video games you should definitely check it out on their Youtube or upcoming event! This is just a must watch for every gamer!
What is a Speedrun?
A speedrun is a play-through of a video game performed with the intention of completing it as fast as possible. Speedruns may cover a whole game or a selected part, such as a single level. While all speedruns aim for quick completion, some speedruns are characterized by additional rules that players promise to obey, such as collecting all key items. Players attempt speedruns mainly to challenge themselves and to entertain and compete with others
The Prevent Cancer Foundation
The Prevent Cancer Foundation is one of the nation’s leading voluntary health organizations and the only U.S. nonprofit focused solely on cancer prevention and early detection. Founded in 1985, it has catapulted cancer prevention to prominence and fulfills its mission through research, education, outreach and advocacy across the country.
