Awesome Games Done Quick Marathon Starts Tonight
You know Games Done Quick, don’t you? Now in their fourth year, the teams organised by speed gaming group Speed Demos Archive have raised over $300,000 for various charities.
This year’s Awesome Games Done Quick, the biggest charity gaming marathon of the year, starts tonight at 6pm GMT, for over 150 hours of gaming in aid of the Prevent Cancer Foundation, and with its biggest collection of Sonic games yet.
The schedule is a fluid one and subject to change at any time, but the estimated times for Sonic are here:
Sonic CD: 7pm Monday
Sonic 2: 7:30pm Monday
Sonic 3 & Knuckles: 8:10pm Monday
Sonic Generations: 4:10am Thursday
Sonic Colours: 5:40am Thursday
Sonic ’06: 7:20am Thursday
Shadow the Hedgehog: 9am Thursday
Be sure to tune in if you like quality gaming, and maybe slip in a few squid for a great cause.
Awesome Games Done Quick Running Sonic Games (Again)
It’s that time again. For the last three years, the guys at Speed Demos Archive have been doing speedrunning marathons for charities, and at 8PM GMT, their latest Awesome Games Done Quick begins in aid of the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

The whole schedule is here, but starting at about 9pm on Thursday, the original Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles (does that count as two games?) and Sonic Adventure 2 (with a 2-man race) are up.
