Games Done Quick Presents Frost Fatales, Starting This Sunday
Normally we only hear about Games Done Quick’s charity events twice a year, but 2023 is special: this winter we’re getting a bonus event. GDQ hosts a community for female gamers called Frame Fatales, and starting this Sunday the group will be holding a weeklong charity marathon. Watch out for Frost Fatales, starting Sunday and benefiting the Malala Fund.
The difference between this and the main GDQ marathon, aside from the focus on women, is that it doesn’t run 24 hours per day. Each day of Frost Fatales will begin at around 9:30 AM Pacific / 12:30 PM Eastern and conclude twelve hours later at 9:30 PM 12:30 AM. But a lot will be packed into those seven days: scheduled speedruns include Stray, Metroid Dread, Cult of the Lamb, Untitled Goose Game, Fore Emblem: Three Houses, Shadow The Hedgehog, Okami HD, Dark Souls II, Tetris The Grand Master (aka the hardest Tetris game ever made), the NES homebrew Witch ‘n Wiz, and something called “Satan Loves Cake.” Things will wrap up with Hollow Knight on the evening of March 4. Check out the full schedule through this link.
The Malala Fund, named after that Middle Eastern girl who got her own best-selling book, is a non-profit that works to secure free, safe, and quality education for girls around the world. Last year, Frame Fatales hosted a summer event called Flame Fatales that raised over $137,000 for Malala.
You’ll be able to watch Frost Fatales on the regular GDQ Twitch channel live, and catch up on the runs separately as they’re uploaded to the GDQ archive on YouTube. Frost Fatales begins Sunday, February 26 and runs through Saturday, March 4.
