I must admit that I'm a pretty huge fan of game speedrunning events and particularly organizations such as GDQ and ESA.

Summer Games Done Quick was originally scheduled for June 21-June 28 in Bloomington, Minnesota, but organizers have rescheduled the charity event in response to the current coronavirus crisis. Sounds pretty awesome to me! Whereas they've elected to postpone Summer season Games Done Quick (SGDQ), an in-person event that raises millions for charity every year, they've additionally introduced an online event to assist present relief for these impacted by COVID-19. All donations will go to Direct Relief. Game Submissions are open now until April 2nd, 2020. Direct Relief is active throughout the United States and in more than 80 countries, with the aim of bringing medical aid to people impacted by poverty or emergencies "without regard to politics, religion, or ability to pay".

The full notice and list of responses by GDQ include a re-opening of game run submissions, a need for volunteers to reapply, and more changes pertaining to the pushback of the event.

Please submit your games for consideration using the CRDQ Game Submissions Form.

What Do We Think?

When is Corona Relief Done Quick?

I said toll, not damage, but sure it can be taken any way around if you want to.Going through any kind of drama of this proportion is emotionally draining, I suggest you actually at least check out any of the banned runners videos from the user that posted them above to hear their side. Oh, and it's also being held at a time when no one is allowed to do much more than sit at home and watch Twitch.

Have you actually seen any of the recent events?

Excuse my comments, I don't know how I said such awful comments from such saint event.
