Summer Games Done Quick raises more than $700,000

Summer Games Done Quick, the mid-year fund raiser of Speed Demos Archive, nearly tripled the amount it raised in 2013, hauling in $713,000 over a week long stretch, the proceeds of which go to Doctors Without Borders.

Speed Demos Archive announced the figure today over its Twitter account, noting that the Games Done Quick campaign has raised more than $2.75 million lifetime.

"To see what we have been able to accomplish in just four years since then is nothing short of incredible. We love you all!" the organizers tweeted.

Summer Games Done Quick also partnered with Humble Bundle during the drive, with more than $82,000 raised from the sale of 10 indie games.
