Awesome Games Done Quick 2020 Begins January 5

The annual speedrunning charity event Awesome Games Done Quick 2020 will begin tomorrow, Jan. 5 through next week on Jan. 12.

The event will begin with a pre-show starting at 11:30 a.m. ET and kick off with a speedrun of 3D platformer A Hat in Time at noon. The 24-hour, week-long event will conclude with a speedrun of Super Metroid Impossible, a ROM hack that severly increases the difficulty of the Super Nintendo classic.

Other games featured in the schedule include Untitled Goose Game, Destiny 2, Barbie for the NES, Wild Animal Sports Day, Garfield: Caught in the Act, Final Fantasy VIII, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, The Outer Worlds, Super Fancy Pants Adventure, and more.

Awesome Games Done Quick will be celebrating its 10th anniversary, which began in January 2010 raising money for Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere (CARE).

Every subsequent event has raised money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation with over $2.4 million donated at last year’s event. According to a press release, more than 2,200 people attended the 2019 event with a peak of 219,240 concurrent viewers through Twitch.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2020 is taking place at the DoubleTree Hilton in Orlando, Florida, and the entire marathon can be watched through the group’s official Twitch channel.
