Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ), the annual weeklong charity speed running marathon, kicks off on Sunday, and if this year’s schedule has something going on, the event promises to be another exciting event of mind-boggling gaming.
The lineup for this year offers a great mix of old and new games that players will try to beat as soon as possible. I am personally excited to see it Chicory: a colorful story beat in 35 minutes, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart ready in just over an hour and a half, and the original gloriole finished on Legendary in an hour and 17 minutes. Some of the races look like they might be great to watch too, like the 26-minute three-way race Diddy Kong Racing Run. (Will you Beat Wizpig? Tune in to find out.) And one of the final runs could be one of the best of the event: the badass run Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be completed blindfolded.
AGDQ 2022, which is online only this year, starts January 9th at 12 noon ET, which is where it will be streamed live on Twitch. It’s slated to end just after midnight ET on Jan. 16. Donations go to the Prevent Cancer Foundation; Last year the event raised more than $ 2.7 million.
