on January 5, 2015 12:15 PM

With the new year now upon us and a fresh slate of new games waiting, the dawn of 2015 also brings the annual Awesome Games Done Quick charity marathon, where top speedrunners compete to blast through great games really quick in the name of charity.

Kicking off on January 4th, the assortment of games being streamed varies greatly through the marathon’s schedule which includes recent titles like Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Transistor to old classics like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Banjo-Kazooie, to games of a more selective taste like PS1’s Blasto.

As a week-long event held to benefit the Prevent Cancer Foundation, viewers can tune in to the live stream throughout the week for a look at the games being played and bested every single day. Viewers of the stream can support AGDQ all week with purchases of official stream t-shirts, purchasing the event’s Humble Bundle package, or doing direct donations all week long to support the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

The Awesome Games Done Quick Charity Marathon Speedrun is taking place now through January 11th, 2015: check out the full livestream of the event right now, and in addition you can check out the full schedule of the weeklong streaming event here, support the stream by buying an official shirt from The Yetee here, buy the official AGDQ Humble Bundle here, or donate to the event by clicking here.
