Summer Games Done Quick 2022 is heading into its fourth day, already bringing joy to viewers and raising money for charity. This year's event marks GDQ's big return to live venues, the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic back in 2020. The best speedrunners in the world have flown in to Minnesota to show their unique skills across some of the top games of yesterday, today, and (sometimes even) tomorrow in front of a worldwide audience on Twitch.

Summer Games Done Quick 2022 is back in Bloomington, Minnesota. Many of this year's runners are on-hand for live runs, though a few are checking in virtually from their home spaces. This year's event is raising money for Doctors Without Borders. After three days, the runners have raised over $550,000. Shacknews will be watching all week and we'll make sure to bring you the daily schedule each day. Plus, we'll highlight the noteworthy runs worth watching.

Before we get to the schedule, let's look at a highlight from Day 3, from the karaoke portion of this week's programming.

You can watch all of the action in the embed below!

10:47AM - Tunic

It's arguably the biggest indie standout of the year so far. Tunic has captivated nearly everyone who's played it so far, putting players in the role of a charming fox lost in a fantasy world. There's a lot of exploration and backtracking involved in this game, but not when it comes time to speedrun. Look for Sunnymuffin to try and wrap this one up in about 40 minutes.

4:17PM - Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

The most recent entry in the Donkey Kong Country series is probably the hardest. It takes a skilled player to get through Tropical Freeze, but only those cut from a special cloth can run through it in 1 hour and 35 minutes. This one gets a recommendation partially because of Spikevegeta, who's consistently one of the most entertaining runners in the world. He'll keep the audience engaged as he looks to barrel through one of his favorite games.

7:27PM - Super Mario Sunshine

Last night, Mario went to the Darker Side in Super Mario Odyssey. It's a long and intense challenge. Is it a more intense challenge than Super Mario Sunshine? The objective tonight is to collect all 120 Shinies and SB_runs will look to do it in just a little over three hours.


Summer Games Done Quick 2022 Online continues from now through Saturday, July 2. For more, check out the Games Done Quick website and be sure to come back all week to Shacknews for more on this week's marathon.

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?

        Well, this run went off the rails with a game over without a save, but that are going to try to redo or do a shorter (less shines) run of the game.
