Summer Games Done Quick, the annual speedrunning charity event, ended late last night with a Chrono Trigger run and more than $1 million raised for charity.

The total raised for Doctors Without Border, which Games Done Quick says may fluctuate over the next few days as the total is tallied, was $1,230,852.

Summer Games Done Quick took place in Minnesota this year, right in our back yard, so we brought in speedrunners before the event kicked off to showcase some of their skills. They played Gunstar Heroes, Crystal's Pony Tales, and Bloodborne, which you can see by following the links. You can also check out the amazing Pokémon Blue speedrun from the actual event by heading here. You can also check out some photos from the event by heading here.

 

Our Take
This is great news for Games Done Quick. It's a great event that's fun to watch, and I hope they liked Minnesota enough to hold next year's event here, too.
