For those who are not familiar with Summer Games Done Quick, it is an annual charity event where Speed Demos Archive and Speed Runs Live gets some of the top speedrunners together for a full week of playing and streaming classic and contemporary video games as fast as they can. It is all done in the name of Doctors Without Borders, a nonprofit organization that “delivers emergency medical care to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, natural disaster, or exclusion from healthcare in more than 65 countries.” The goal is to improve upon their past success after topping over $1.25 million in funds raised for the Prevent Cancer Foundation during Awesome Games Done Quick 2015.
If you donate certain amounts of money throughout the Summer Games Done Quick stream, you will be eligible to win sweet prizes. They are switched in and out throughout the stream, and are usually centered around the current game or block of titles. Additionally, you can donate to make several choices that impact the schedule or gameplay styles and options within several games during the stream, including bonus games, streamer incentives or whether or not to kill the animals in Super Metroid (a 3-player race this year).
Humble Bundle is also getting back into the action with support for Summer Games Done Quick 2015. This time, they’ll be posting a Humble Store sale, with a portion of the profits going towards Medicines sans Frontiers. Additionally, 100% of all Twitch subscriptions of the GamesDoneQuick channel will be donated to the very same cause.
Finally, you can also purchase several gaming-related t-shirts from The Yetee in order to help out the funds raised from Summer Games Done Quick. $3 from every shirt will be contributed to Doctors Without Borders, which is a great way to support a cause while picking up some sweet merchandise. As someone who bought a Super Metroid shirt last year, I can attest that their stuff is pretty great, especially for the price.
With all that said and done, here is the schedule for Day 1 of Summer Games Done Quick 2015, running from now until 1 PM EDT tomorrow (all times Eastern):
