Newsbrief: Summer Games Done Quick 2017 has raised a massive $1.76 million for international medical humanitarian organization, Doctors Without Borders.
The bi-annual speedrunning event sees a group of volunteers rally together to complete games at breakneck speeds to raise cash for charity.
The summer edition ran from July 2 to July 9, and featured a variety of titles old and new, including Earthbound, Diablo 2, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario 64, and Dark Souls III.
You can catch up on some of those lightning fast speedruns over on Twitch. After that, you can find out more about Doctors Without Borders, which provides aid in nearly 70 countries to people whose survival is threatened by conflict, neglect, or catastrophe, right here.
With a current cash total $1,760,400 we absolutely destroyed our total from SGDQ of last year! Amazing job everyone! #SGDQ2017 pic.twitter.com/dyMPZhnbmF— Games Done Quick (@GamesDoneQuick) July 9, 2017
