$1.7 million raised for Doctors Without Borders

Games Done Quick Speed Demos Archive

The seventh edition of the speedrunning festival Summer Games Done Quick ended early this morning with another record: $1.7 million raised and donated to the charity Doctors Without Borders.

As usual, the final tally should rise slightly as more donations filter in, but $1,760,857.89 was raised from 30,041 donors over the weeklong extravaganza, which is more than half a million dollars over the previous year.

Summer Games Done Quick featured more than 130 speedrun attempts. We've got some highlights below, but the full list of videos-on-demand for SGDQ 2017 can be found on the speedrun subreddit.

In no particular order, here are:

Dark Souls by BubblesDelFuego (any percent) in 29:05.

Super Meat Boy, an any-percent race run by warm_ham and Fimbz, won in 21:14.
