In total, SGDQ 2021 will have an estimated 163 hours of content based on the 163 games listed on the main schedule. This total takes into account each speedrun’s estimated time to completion and could end up varying depending on how many runs are finished ahead of schedule or go over their allotted time.

Here are a few of the runs you should look out for:

  • Bubzia’s blindfolded Super Mario 64 70-star run
  • Untitled Goose Game: 100 percent co-op and other runs too
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: All Dungeons race
  • A Pokémon Black and White race between PulseEffects and Swiftalu
  • A GeoGuessr run where havrd tries for a perfect score

And, like always, there are some bonus games listed to drive donations. These will only be added to the schedule if certain milestones set by the GDQ team are met during the event. 

SGDQ 2021 will still be hosted online, streamed in its entirety to GDQ’s official Twitch channel. You can view the full schedule and other details about SGDQ on the official GDQ website.
