Summer Games Done Quick 2020 Releases Full Schedule For August

The online-only event will run for just over a week in August.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, industry events around the world have been forced to move online, or be outright canceled in many cases. Summer Games Done Quick has managed to successfully transition to an online-only event, and has today published its upcoming schedule in full.

The announcement came late last night from the official Games Done Quick Twitter account. The event itself is scheduled to begin on August 15, and run on for just over a week until August 23. If you've signed up to be part of the SGDQ2020 event for August, you'll receive an email confirming your participation by July 14.

As for the actual lineup itself, there's some pretty exciting runs in the mix. Starting on August 16 there's Demon's Souls and ICO, followed by Kid Icarus, Zelda 2: Adventure of Link, and The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion, The Witcher 3, and Batman: Arkham City on August 17.

There's the reappearance of games that have featured at past Games Done Quick events, like Hollow Knight, Tony Hawk's Underground, and a few others. Then there's one I'm particularly excited about: Yakuza Kiwami 2, a game that I literally can't get my head around speedrunning for.

Games Done Quick actually put on a special event back in April to raise money for the COVID-19 relief effort. In just three days, the event managed to raise well over $400,000, with all proceeds going to Direct Relief, a charity that's currently assisting with the COVID-19 relief effort.
