Summer Games Done Quick (SGDQ) is the summer time charity speedrunning marathon held by Games Done Quick, and even though the event itself is still just under three months away the games that will be played during the marathon have been announced.

The list includes many of the standbys we’ve come to expect to see at these marathons. A long list of Mario, and Zelda titles, Mega Man, the ever popular four way Super Metroid race, but also included are some noteworthy surprises. One such surprise is NieR: Automate. It’s rare to see such a new release make the list, and the fact it’s already under two and half hours is pretty impressive. Another one that may not seem as noteworthy to those unfamiliar with the speedrunning community is the Final Fantasy VII No Slots run. FFVII No Slots is one of my personal favorite speedruns. It hasn’t been ran at a GDQ since AGDQ ’12, and the run has change quite a bit since then. It was considered by many in the community as “too long” for a modern GDQ, so seeing it on the list quite the pleasant surprise to me.

You can checkout the full list for yourself here. It’s should be noted that this is games list, NOT the schedule. Games are listed in alphabetical order. Summer Games Done Quick 2017 will run from July 2nd to July 9th and they will be raising money for Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières), a humanitarian organization that provides medical aid to those who need it in war-torn regions regardless of nationality.

    I know they usually like to close out a GDQ with a longer game, so maybe FFVII will be the final game of the show this year.

    • Panpopo

      That would make sense. I am interested in that particular run (No slots!), and it is a popular game to get donations from.

    Nier Automata?

    Okay, it’s ending A, so that’s cutting down on things a lot. Makes sense. Still, 2:25 is impressive for that. The one really making my head spin is that it’s one-handed. What is this, easy mode? Probably easy mode.
