Speed Demos Archive and Speed Runs Live team up once again to bring you another charity marathon with Summer Games Done Quick, featuring several games that will be finished in the shortest time possible, live and in front of thousands of viewers over the internet in order to raise money for Doctors Without Borders. The event lasts for five days, until the 30th, which includes games like Sonic the Hedgehog on Mega Drive and Master System, Ecco: The Tides of Time and more during the period. Earlier this year they also held Awesome Games Done Quick 2013 which has helped to raise over $448,000 for the Prevent Cancer Foundation, and they’re looking to repeat that success again with an initial goal of $50,000. The event also gives donors several benefits as well, donations affect bidding decisions on games and provides chances to win several prizes.
The event is currently underway! You can check out the stream on the Speed Demos Archive page or through the Twitch channel.
Having raised over $1800 for Child’s Play back in August, members of The Sonic Center, along with some speedrunners from Speed Demos Archive and SpeedRunsLive, are again running about 50 hours of Sonic Team games. Proceeds from this year’s marathon will benefit the American Cancer Society, and your donations can determine what you see, such as Chaos Emerald collection, fishing for Froggy, or stage selection in Sonic Shuffle.
Join in for both speedruns and casual play of all of your favourite and least-favourite games, playthroughs of other Sonic Team IPs such as NiGHTS and Burning Rangers, as well the ever-popular Tails Skypatrol, as audience play for Puyo Pop and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed for Xbox 360, and- wait, what do you mean you don’t know what Puyo Pop is? We didn’t work on Sega Retro for you to ignore it!

While this is a week-long event, the folks behind the Speed Demos Archive are hosting a charity event and hours of video games “Done-quick” live….right now! Even if you’re waiting for Lebron’s film, you’ll recognize some participants such as Da1andonlysonic.
Also if you donate, not only will you be eligible for prizes, you’ll also be able to sway certain campaigns, such as which character you’d like to see played in Sonic 2006. Check out the prizes and schedule here.
They’re currently going through Sonic Colors and can watch the stream on their website or through their Twitch page.
Also, hey! It’s for charity! Show some love and fight for a cure for cancer.
