Some of you may know about this already, but the game marathon Summer Games Done Quick starts tomorrow (June 25th), hosted by Speed Demos Archive.
This year's event will be raising money for the charity Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), which delivers emergency medical care to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, natural disaster, or exclusion from health care in more than 65 countries. An independent international humanitarian organization, MSF unites direct medical care with a commitment to bearing witness to the plight of the people it assists.
Here's the schedule, which covers the 25th-29th, and times shown are adjusted to your computer's set timezone.
As with all of their marathons, they will have "goals" for quite a few of the games listed, which can be donated towards unlocking. Goal rewards can be things such as higher difficulty, imposed handicaps (playing with your feet or whatnot), different boss order for games like Mega Man, character names on Final Fantasy games, and so on. You can also be entered in for a drawing when you donate, and win things like perlers, game merch, shirts, and other various prizes.
The event will be streamed live on http://marathon.speeddemosarchive.com/ and as soon as the individual runs are uploaded, can be viewed at any time via the History tab along with runs from past events.
Please tune in, and please consider donating!
