Awesome Games Done Quick 2023 Online: Watch Day 3 here

Awesome Games Done Quick 2023 has raised over $300,000 so far in just two days! Here's the schedule for Day 3.


The beginning of a new year means the inevitable return of Awesome Games Done Quick, back for another week of marathon speedrunning. The community came together for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic back at SGDQ, but things have gone virtual once again, due to concerns over COVID policies and increasingly hostile political policies in Florida. The mission remains the same as it always has. The top runners in the world will look to speed through some of the most recognizable games of the past and present in front of a worldwide audience on Twitch and they'll do it for charity.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2023 Online takes place from the homes of many of the world's best runners. In two days, GDQ has already raised more than $325,000 for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. 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 2. There was a lot to be impressed about in the Shredder's Revenge race, but this stun lock on Metalhead is high up there.

It always feels like Nintendo is letting this classic fall under its radar. Really, any sort of love for the superior Super Mario Galaxy game is greatly appreciated. It's even better when there's a four-way race happening. Tune in to see who comes out on top in this exciting trot through the cosmos.

5:27PM - Outer Wilds

Speaking of strange trips through the cosmos, let's check out Outer Wilds. By that, I mean let's check out all of Outer Wilds. This run is targeting the full 100 percent, which includes everything featured in the Echoes of the Eye expansion. If you haven't seen this time-based indie excursion, be sure to check it out.

1:54AM - Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks

Source: NetherRealm Studios

Now here's a game we don't see everyday. When people think of single-player Mortal Kombat adventures, they think of the horrendous experiment that was Sub-Zero. However, there was a second solo outing that came out during the PS2 generation, which is what we're seeing here. Liu Kang and Kung Lao have a much better adventure than ol' Sub did and now you can check it out for yourself in this 20-minute run.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2023 Online will take place from now through Saturday, January 14. 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.

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?
