Awesome Games Done Quick 2023 Set for January as Online-Only Event

Awesome Games Done Quick

Dates are officially locked set for another installment of the Awesome Games Done Quick charity speedrunning event, that is set to be held from January 8-15, 2023. As the marathon originally planned to host an in-person event in Florida, those plans have changed and it’ll now be held being an online-only event until they are able to properly find out their relocation situation.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2023 will once more be held on Twitch to get Prevent Cancer Foundation, that is dedicated to the first detection and prevention of cancer.

Beyond the news release, a statement on Twitter citesFlorida’s COVID-19 policies and LGBTQ stance as known reasons for the move from an in-person event at the positioning. As further comments note, the price necessary to cancel their contract with the Florida venue was too great to justify relocation at the moment, hence the online-only solution.

Given the states continued disregard for COVID-19s dangers (including anti-mandate policies) and an elevated aggression towards LGBTQ+ individuals, like the law colloquially referred to as “Don’t Say Gay,” we usually do not believe that it is a safe place for the community.

The Games Done Quick group of speedrunning events has raised $41 million for charity up to now. For those not used to the function, here’s the state description:

Games Done Quick has been hosting speedrunning marathons for greater than a decade. The reason is easy: Expert players from all over the world highlight their skills by beating games as fast as possible often taking minutes to perform through video gaming that may ordinarily require a large number of hours to perform. Even while, viewers give donations in a raucous livestream, the proceeds which are given right to the event’s charity partner.

Keep tuned in for more information, like the full schedule of games, as further announcements are created.
