For those who are planning to see this week-long semi-annual video game for the very first time, here the basic knowledge you must have. It is a charity marathon of video game speed-run which is held in the US.
The Summer Games Done Quick was initially and originally organized by Speed Demons Archive. However, since the year 2015, it is being organized by Games Done Quick, LLC. The events held are used to raise money for charities.
SGDQ is live-streamed on the Twitch channel. In the year 2018, SGDQ raised $2,263,508.19 which topped their last year’s collection by 40,000 dollars.
Hope this year they get even much more than that!!
