This year’s Done Quick Summer Games raised a total of $ 2,897,704 for Doctors Without Borders, after seven days of events, surpassing their record for money raised during previous online-only broadcasts.
For those unfamiliar with Summer Games Done Quick, much of that money was raised through bidding wars (choosing things like characters and saving file names) and donating to achieve challenging goals that would change the rules of a speedrun. So one bidder gave $ 155.73 to name the Inquisitor for Dragon Age: Inquisition "Bingus" The bids for "Anders", "Doggy" and "Honk" were unsuccessful names, but they are still donations), but there were also $ 51,038.82 collective raised for Celeste to play with a catgirl mod. Because, he quotes, "Yeah … Celeste is good. But what if Catgirl Madeline?"
If you missed any of the tests, you can copy the VODs to Twitch or YouTube, for example the Geoguessr speedrun that blew up my Twitter. Games Done Fast events are always incredibly impressive just because of the wide range of ways in which games can be run quickly. Sometimes it’s about discovering faults and feats, sometimes they’re perfect reflections, and sometimes it’s a deep understanding of the geography of the world.
You can also make a donation to Doctors Without Borders, mainly Games done quickly place, if you wanted to try squeaking up to 3 million.
