Who’s ready for the Thumb Olympics? Games Done Quick is returning once more this summer, streaming incredible gaming feats live for charity dollars. Today the organization announced the date and lineup for Summer Games Done Quick — it’ll begin July 3 and last through July 10, and be held in Minneapolis.
Things get crazy immediately with an attempt at beating the brutally hard Demon’s Souls within one hour and 15 minutes, followed by a “one player 2 controllers” playthrough of Catherine. On Wednesday somebody will attempt to beat Donkey Kong 64 within 55 minutes (looking forward to the glitch exploitation there). This year’s Castlevania marathon includes the infamous Castlevania 64, in a timed race between the Reinhardt and Carrie modes. Bad Games Done Quick will return in full force after its popularity during the January marathon; entrants on that end include Crystal’s Pony Tale and Barbie Game Girl. And there’ll be a five-player Tetris showdown!
Other playthroughs include The Goonies II, Link’s Awakening DX, Bioshock, Guacamelee, Super Meat Boy, Freedom Planet, Contra III, Shantae: Risky’s Revenge, Super Mario Land, Pikmin, Final Fantasy Adventure, Mickey Mousecapade, and many, many others. The schedule is out — try to find your favorites!
