Corona Relief Done Quick: The full schedule

Games Done Quick is raising money this weekend to help Direct Relief fight the COVID-19 pandemic. Shacknews is here with the full Corona Relief Done Quick schedule.

The world has been turned upside-down over the last month. Everyone has been affected by the continuing spread of COVID-19 and the folks at Games Done Quick are no exception. The plan was to run Summer Games Done Quick in June, as normal, but the ongoing pandemic has resulted in the event being postponed. However, there will be speedrunning for charity and it's going down this weekend with Corona Relief Done Quick.

Corona Relief Done Quick will take place entirely online. All proceeds raised from the next three days will go directly to Direct Relief, the charity devoted to helping and improving the lives of those affected by poverty or emergencies. Shacknews is here with the full schedule, taken from the Games Done Quick website.

The weekend will be filled with classic games, but there are also a couple of very recent releases that will be featured. This will be the GDQ debut of Doom Eternal and Ori and the Will of the Wisps, both of which released back in March. It'll also be the first time that a Games Done Quick wraps up with a Kingdom Hearts title, changing things up from previous events where a GDQ week would sometimes close with sister series Final Fantasy.

Corona Relief Done Quick will run through Sunday, April 19. Meanwhile, Summer Games Done Quick will now run from August 16-23 from Bloomington, MN, assuming the current conditions allow for it to take place.

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?

        Apparently technical issues are holding up the start. Hopefully will be starting soon. There is a level 5 hype train even before the stream starts!

        Unlike a normal GDQ, the player has to stream to someone at GDQ, who then applies the graphics / donation counter, and then re-streams the video to twitch.
