Behold, for another speed run marathon is in the works! If you enjoy watching people struggle to complete many games as fast as possible without sleep, then you know speed run marathons are the thing for you. And one will be coming to your computer screen very soon! Games Done Quick will be up for seven long and arduous days while they complete more than 100 games from different gaming platforms. Of course, several Zelda games are also scheduled to be played: A Link Between Worlds, Link’s Awakening DX, Four Swords Adventures, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, and Ocarina of Time. All of these Zelda games, except for Link’s Awakening DX, will be done at any completion percentage. Link’s Awakening DX will have a 100 percent speed run.
Games Done Quick is a charity video game marathon group solely dedicated to raising money for charity through their speed runs. Their previous speed running marathon, Awesome Games Done Quick 2016, managed to raise an astounding $1,216,079.02 for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. This time, the money raised for this marathon will go to the Doctors Without Borders organization.
