Summer Games Done Quick 2018 has come to an end. Following Saturday night's Final Fantasy VI run, the event wrapped up, but everyone is departing with something to be proud of. That's because the multitude of speedrunners featured throughout the week combined their talents to raise over $2 million for Doctors Without Borders.
The final donation total for SGDQ 2018 stands at $2,122,249. This does not include T-shirt sale proceeds from The Yetee, sponsor donations, Humble Bundle proceeds, Twitch Bits, or proceeds from Twitch channel subscriptions, including Twitch Prime subscriptions. This is expected to increase the final donation total well beyond the initial $2 million.
With the remaining Bloomington, MN crowd ready to head home, there was still one final piece of business to attend to. That involved the date and location for next year's Awesome Games Done Quick. For 2019, Awesome Games Done Quick will head to Rockville, MD on the week of January 6-13.
However, that's not all that Games Done Quick has planned for this year. Remember that Games Done Quick Express will bring speedrunning to this year's TwitchCon for round-the-clock runs from October 26-28. Money raised there will go to the various charities in attendance at the TwitchCon Charity Plaza.

There were some good runs, as always, this year.
Also, if we want to get some Zelda Randomizer going at some point, I am in! I have a solid two and a half hour average going.
Need troz to list the best runs
It takes a while, but the GamesDoneQuick eventually uploads the runs individually to their YouTube channel, which is my preferred method of watching.
I never really got into twitch.
They have been decent this time, all the videos up to the Half life bonus run are up so far. They have been getting them on YouTube in about 2 days so far.
A year or two ago and they made it so you have to have an account to use Chromecast with their app. Mildy infuriating.
I couldn't stay up for the end. I'll post some of the good runs later.
Make sure you mention that fire Mario Odyssey run! Love your write ups btw.
Never mind, I see it below, lol
Was fantastic, one of my favorite years for sure. I liked the races and disliked tasbot. I understand why they did it, but it was also a bummer how many popular games were done late or at odd hours.
Was it weird that they ended it at 2AM? I wasn't expecting that
I normally ends around that time. I think it was originally scheduled for 1am, so 2ish isn't too bad.

More Youtube videos here soon:
The Celeste race and SMB3 race are my favs so far
I really wish I was able to watch more of it this year. The roku app for twitch is just awful though, and I don't really sit at my computer to watch videos when I'm home now.
