The latest edition of the Games Done Quick (GDQ) charity event will kick off on Aug. 16 at 10:30am CT.

The speedrunning organization will be supporting Doctors Without Borders this time around, a non-profit organization that delivers medical aid to people who are in urgent need. GDQ has been helping charities around the world since 2010, raising more than $26 million across countless events.

The event was initially planned to be held offline, but due to the recent pandemic, it was moved to an online format. GDQ will broadcast the event from its studio, while participants will perform their speedruns from the comfort and safety of their homes.

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming Summer Games Done Quick 2020.

Format

Like previous years, speedrunners will be taking turns to showcase how fast they can beat a game. The length of the runs depends on the game and the contestant, but this year’s online format could also cause minor delays between entries.

Stream

The Summer Games Done Quick will be broadcasted on the organization’s Twitch channel.

Schedule

The event will begin on Sunday, Aug. 16 at approximately 10:30am CT. The event will last for six days and end on Saturday, Aug. 22 around 11:42pm CT.

Here’s the full schedule of the event.
