Awesome Games Done Quick 2015 Schedule Is Live


Although we’re still more than two months away from the next great speedrunning charity marathon via Speed Demos Archive, that doesn’t mean that the itinerary can’t be dealt with first! As promoted from the organization’s Twitter account, the Awesome Games Done Quick 2015 schedule is now live, posted from the Speed Demos Archive forums.

More from News

If you weren’t around to watch earlier this year, Awesome Games Done Quick is a speedrunning marathon taken place across one devilishly-long week each January. Members of the speedrunning community converge each year to raise money in the name of the Prevent Cancer Foundation by playing classic and contemporary video games as fast as possible. As soon as one game is done, the setup for the next game begins immediately, and playtime is expected to reach over 158 hours. Earlier this year, Speed Demos Archive organized the event’s biggest year, raising over $1 million for the cause.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2015 will be broadcasted on Twitch, as well as From there, you can find the schedule, the livestream (once the event begins) and information about how to donate. Discounts on t-shirts, donation incentives and tons more goodies are planned in support of the event, and will become more clear the closer we get to the event.

There a lot of noteworthy items involved with the Awesome Games Done Quick 2015 schedule. First off is the estimated post-game setup column. Taking setup into account is a great way to keep themselves accountable, as those looking at the schedule day 1 were bound to get into programming issues as games were pushed beyond projected beginning and ending times.

More important are the games and their runners. This year, we will get no appearance from Cosmo, who has recently shattered the Ocarina of Time any% speedrun time. We open up with Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, which hadn’t even launched by last year’s beginning. The event also won’t end on a 90’s JRPG, after the previous two marathons ended with Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger. Finally, there’s 4 straight F-Zero games being played; certainly inspired by one of last year’s greatest runs.

Without further adieu, below is the full Awesome Games Done Quick 2015 schedule as it stands at press time.
