The first Awesome Games Done Quick event for 2019 is around the corner. At 17:30 CET, the pre show will begin, followed by a True Ending No Major Glitches run of Hollow Knight.
The upcoming edition of the 24/7 speedrunning marathon will cover 132 games and is being held at the Rockville Hotel in Washington, D.C. As always, the speed runners will collect donations for charity. As it has become tradition, all money will go to the Prevent Cancer Foundation — the ninth time AGDQ has chosen this charity.
AGDQ 2019 will try to beat last year’s record of $2,295,191 million — the highest amount raised by any Games Done Quick event. Once again, AGDQ will have a week to do it: between Jan. 6-13.
The full AGDQ 2019 schedule has also been announced and features something for fans of oldschool and modern games alike. From Mario Kart 64, through Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, to Dark Souls III and Nier: Automata, viewers will be treated to a truly broad variety of games. Plus, where else can you watch Divinity: Original Sin 2 being beaten in under 30 minutes?
You can watch all the action on AGDQ 2019’s Twitch stream.
