Awesome Games Done Quick 2020: Day 6 schedule and runs to watch

It's that time of year again. Awesome Games Done Quick has returned for 2020 and Shacknews is here with Friday's full schedule and runs to check out.

17

It's that time of the year again. Awesome Games Done Quick has returned for seven more days of speedrunning action. The top speedrunners in the world will look to complete the top games of the past and present as quickly as possible and they'll look to do it in front of a worldwide Twitch audience. They'll look to break records, raise money for charity, and have some fun along the way.

Awesome Games Done Quick comes to you from Orlando, FL. This year's event will raise money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. It's also a special year, as Games Done Quick as an organization is celebrating its tenth anniversary. The fun is underway, with AGDQ already raising over $1,000,000, and you can watch Awesome Games Done Quick 2020 right along with Shacknews. We're making sure to check in every day this week with the daily schedule and to spotlight particularly noteworthy runs worth following.

Before hitting the schedule for today, let's look at one of the highlights from Day 5. Let's get a look at the $1,000,000 milestone.

Here's the full schedule for Day 6, taken from the Games Done Quick website, along with a handful of runs to check out. Times will give or take a few minutes depending on progress made throughout the day:

5:59 AM Kuru Kuru Kururin Any% (Normal) - GBA mohoc 20:00

8:04AM - Celeste

Celeste is a brilliant platformer and one that's built for speedrunning. The core game on its own is an entertaining watch. But this isn't the core game. This run is for the recently-released Chapter 9. Farewell goes beyond adding new playable areas. It adds entirely new twists to the game. This one's going to be a fun one to watch, so start your day the right way.

8:27PM - Super Mario 64 Randomizer

GDQ has been getting into this more and more, but the Super Mario 64 Randomizer has totally rejuvenated what's become a run-of-the-mill effort. Randomizer introduces a lot of twists, the need for off-the-cuff strategies, and a lot of opportunity for fun and audience engagement. The Randomizer race should be the highlight of this Friday night and should be an unforgettable experience.

11:17PM - Control

The 2019 Chatty Game of the Year is on full display Friday night. Remedy's latest has proven to be an incredible experience, but is it one that lends itself to speedrunning? We're about to find out. But more than that, there are a handful of donation incentives attached to this one, so stay tuned to see if some of those are met and if we get to explore a little bit more of the Oldest House.


Awesome Games Done Quick 2020 will take place from now through Saturday, January 11. For more, check out the Games Done Quick website and be sure to watch all of the action from Twitch.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        They have just added a new SUPER SECRET BONUS after the Super Mario Maker 2 run, some sort of TAS or demonstration on SMM2, that requires raising an additional $1,000,000 by that end of SMM2!

            One Mine has two players controlling the main character, switching between their inputs every few seconds. Hard Mode has control switching between the players twice a second!
            The sprite does switch between Mario and Luigi to let the players know who is in control.
