AGDQ, or Awesome Games Done Quick, is the Spring event of the Games Done Quick series where high level speed runners for games of all kinds, including the Zelda series, come together to help raise money for charity by live streaming their runs nonstop for a week. With January 4th drawing nearer, the schedule of games to be run is quickly coming to completion. Which Zelda games will we see run, when will we see them ran, and by whom? Make the jump to find out!
The list of confirmed Zelda games in AGDQ and their runners, run types, and times are as follows:
The Legend of Zelda ran by Darkwing Duck and Lackattack24 (no up+a run, race) at 1/6/2015, 3:55:00 PM
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link ran by Pro_JN (any% no up+a run, incentive for a glitched run) at 1/6/2015, 4:40:00 PM
The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap ran by Atroz at 1/9/2015, 11:05:00 AM
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past ran by Andy (All Dungeons no EG) at 1/9/2015, 1:35:00 PM
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask ran by Majinphil (Donation incentive for 2 players 1 controller) at 1/9/2015, 3:10:00 PM
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time ran by ZFG at 1/10/2015, 5:50:00 PM
(All times are in Eastern Time Zone [UTC-05:00])
Admittedly, I was hoping for a few more Zelda games myself (Twilight Princess? Wind Waker?), but there are plenty of games from other awesome franchises listed on the AGDQ 2015 schedule which I am excited for. Ocarina of Time will be the last run of the live stream, meaning the people over at AGDQ know to save the best for last!
Save the date! January 4th through the 10th, with the first Zelda game on the 6th.
