Awesome Games Done Quick 2020 Final Tally Crosses $3 Million”

As it normally does, Games Done Quick revealed the dates for SGDQ 2020 at the end of the event, though it took things one step further by revealing the dates for AGDQ 2021 as well.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2020 raised over $3 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation during the week-long speedrunning marathon. Not only Games Done Quick has set milestones towards a good cause, but they also kept the train running for ten years strong. The speedrunning community is enormous and continues to get bigger as Games Done Quick remains to break records with every event. Recently the company has presented a precedent by collecting a whopping $3.13 for the Prevent Cancer Foundation, which is $700,000 more than the previous year's collection. In that spirit, the events broke their respective records back in 2019 as AGDQ raked in $2.4 million while SGDQ of the same year breezed past that by breaching the $3 million barrier for the first time.

The marathon held 141 runs of various games such as Untitled Goose Game, The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Animorphs, several Sonic games, and all the main Fallout games.
