Awesome Games Done Quick 2022 Beginning This Weekend

Done in support of Prevent Cancer Foundation, the Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ) 2022 event will kick off on Twitch this weekend.

This annual event highlights a lineup of speedruns, gameplay showcases, and competitions. All proceeds will go to the Prevent Cancer Foundation. To put things in perspective, last year’s AGDQ raised more than $2.7 million.

Set to run from January 9 to January 16, titles in this speedrunning event include Psychonauts 2, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Diddy Kong Racing and Half-Life 2. Events of note include a 55-minute run of Fallout New Vegas by BananaPegasus, a blindfolded run of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice by Mitchriz, and a glitched run of Stardew Valley from Olenoname. A schedule for every run can be found here.

For those who’d like to see what the event is all about, you can see some of the highlights from Awesome Games Done Quick 2020 below:
