Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 is kicking off the New Year with all your favorite speedruns. Starting this coming Sunday, January 3rd, the charity event will run for an entire week.
In an effort to make the event feel more normal while observing COVID-19 guidelines, Awesome Games Done Quick is offering a virtual experience this year. “Twitch subscribers can join the crowd on the GDQ website and use various emotes in the Twitch Chat to have the audience of Velocities (GDQ’s mascot) cheer on the runners, viewable by everyone.”
This year, AGDQ 2021 is supporting Prevent Cancer Foundation. 100% of all proceeds donated will go towards the charity. Fans can donate for the chance to win raffle prizes, to promote speedrun choices or just donate to donate. All donation information can be found here.
