Another week long speed running event for charity.
Games Done Quick has announced the schedule for the upcoming Awesome Games Done Quick Online 2023 event taking place online in January 2023.
The week-long event kicks off on January 8th with Any% runs of the recently released Splatoon 3 and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The marathon is expected to conclude on Sunday, January 15th with an Any% Warpless run of Super Mario Bros. 3 for the NES.
The event will feature many speedrunning staples including Super Mario Galaxy 2, Final Fantasy VII, the original Pokemon games, and several Mega Man and Castlevania games. However, there are a few games in the schedule that are new or different from the usual speedrunning titles.
There will be a powerwash simulator where six players will wash all vehicles in the games without soap. A game called PS5 Simulator allows gamers to unbox and set up their own PlayStation 5, a joke about the unavailability of the console, which recently shipped 25 million units. There will also be a game called “I’ll Die If I Don’t Eat Sushi!”. where the character dies if he doesn’t eat sushi.
Awesome Games Done Quick Online 2023 will be online only and broadcast via Games Done Quick Twitch channel. The organizer had decided to cancel the original Florida in-person event due to the state’s anti-COVID-19 mandate guidelines and “increased aggression toward LGBTQ+ people.”
