Games Done Quick Charity organizers of the Speedrunner Festival summarized ended yesterday, January 16th, with the Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ) 2022 Online Marathon.
During the AGDQ 2022 Online period (January 9-16), viewers reportedly made more than 49,000 donations to the non-profit Prevent Cancer Foundation for a record amount of more than $3.4 million.
The previous record for revenue of $3.1 million was held by Awesome Games Done Quick 2020 and held for two years. AGDQ 2022 Online also managed to collect the first million US dollars faster than any other Games Done Quick event.
During AGDQ 2022 Online, streamers managed to complete 149 games at one speed and even updated several records (notably in Kena: Bridge of Spirits). The marathon also includes blind passing Action Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
The next Games Done Quick festival, the women’s Frost Fatales, will be held from February 27th to March 5th. Summer Games Done Quick 2022 is also expected, but details will be announced later.
