Summer Games Done Quick 2017 has come to an end, and the charity stream raised a lot of money. The speedrunning community brought in $1.7 million USD for Doctors Without Borders. They also shattered last year’s record, which raised about $1.3M USD.
The event featured prominent speedrunners, making their way through their favourite games as quickly as possible. Viewers could donate to influence elements of the playthroughs – like naming specific characters.
The stream – which took place over seven days – was bookended by NieR: Automata, and Earthbound. Other prominent games included Dark Souls, Crash Bandicoot, and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
Multiple stipulations were applied to several runs. Some featured glitches, while others weren’t allowed to use them.
