The annual charity speedrunning event ran from July 4 and July 11, and saw a host of intrepid speedrunners attempt to beat a wide array of games including modern releases, classics, and some more left field suggestions (Nintendogs speedrun, anyone?) in rapid time.

The event was held online due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and was broadcast in its entirety on the Games Done Quick Twitch channel.

To-date, the wider Games Done Quick initiative has raised over $31 million for charity, and has partnered with a number of important organisations during its ten-year history including AbleGamers, Organisation for Autism Research, and the Prevent Cancer Foundation. 

Those looking to catch-up on the action can find a selection of Sumer Games Done Quick 2021 Online speedruns over on YouTube.
