Summer Games Done Quick, the annual summertime speedrunning marathon run by SpeedDemosArchive, has started! The runs are well underway and donations are continually rolling in, all in support of Doctors Without Borders. Of course, it would not be a Games Done Quick marathon without lots of fun donation incentives, and plenty of great prizes to win. Hit the jump for the stream, an updated schedule of times for Zelda speedruns, and a list of prizes to be won during those…

It’s that time of year again! It’s sweltering hot, the sun is shining, and the outdoors is ready for playing in! Time to leave that until later, and sit inside to watch some awesome speed runs. Summer Games Done Quick, SpeedDemosArchive‘s week-long speedrun marathon, raising money for charity, is starting in July, and Zelda games are on the list of games to be broken, glitched and exploited. Get ready for all the wrong warps, super swims and early items under…

This June, from the 22nd to the 28th, the speedrunning community is once again coming together to raise money for Doctors Without Borders. The popular Summer Games Done Quick live marathon, hosted by Speed Demos Archive, is bringing together the best speedrunners of dozens of games, including five Zelda games, keeping people up all night to see their favorite games glitched, exploited and pushed to their limits. But the runners never stop there. Memes, races, donation incentives, prizes, and more…

Summer Games Done Quick, the speed run marathon for charity, is about to wrap up its five-day event with one final game: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. The run is scheduled to be roughly 4 hours long at most, and begins at approximately 8:30pm MDT (that’s 7:30pm PST and 10:30pm EST. I didn’t know they were broadcasting from Denver.) The time has been changing frequently, as it depends on the runs prior to it, so please check the schedule here often (it shows the times based on your computer’s time zone). You can watch the marathon live right here.

Any donations you make go to Doctors Without Borders, a France-based humanitarian organization that helps out people of any nation suffering from armed conflict, disease, natural disasters, and anything else of that nature. Your donations will also enter you into a raffle to win prizes. The prizes during Twilight Princess are some Zelda playing cards, faerie bottles, and a replica treasure chest. All of the money goes towards a great cause so please, if you can spare something, make the speed runners proud and donate.

This is the final game in the marathon, and a great one at that. So far in this marathon we’ve seen amazing speed runs of The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, a surprise twenty-minute run of Ocarina of Time, A Link to the Past, and now we’re on Twilight Princess. That’s almost every console Zelda game! Did you tune in for the marathon? Are you watching now, or looking forward to Twilight Princess? What has been your favorite run of the marathon so far?

This is your friendly reminder that the speed run of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is going to start at about 8:20pm EST. Times change frequently so please check here to find the current schedule as the event draws closer. The prizes for donating this time are a Super Nintendo with a boxed copy of Super Mario Kart, a baby Link outfit, a Zelda cross-stitch, and a boxed Japanese 1.0 cart of A Link to the Past. Once again, you can find the marathon stream right here.

This speed run is part of the Summer Games Done Quick marathon to raise money for charity, hosted by Speed Demos Archive. All donations during the marathon go towards Doctors Without Borders, a humanitarian organization made up of medical professionals who treat people around the world who have been afflicted by ‘armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, natural disaster, or exclusion from health care’. Your donations will also enter you into a drawing for the prizes mentioned above, with donation price brackets to be announced when the run starts.

There’s only one more Zelda game in the marathon left: Twilight Princess, scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. Expect another reminder then, and please donate if you can. Enjoy the marathon!

UPDATE: They’ve met a donation goal to have Cosmo run Ocarina of Time at any percent, meaning we’re in for a treat with a heavily glitched run where the game is beat as child Link. It’s starting right now, right before ALttP!
