The Games Done Quick team raised over $400,000 to benefit Direct Relief, a nonprofit organization that’s helping in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

The money was raised during GDQ’s sporadic weekend event known as Corona Relief Done Quick, similar to a mini SGDQ or AGDQ which saw speedruns take place from a number of different streamers playing from their homes due to the enforced lockdown.

Some games made their GDQ debuts, such as Pokémon Sword and Shield. A series of games from different franchises were on offer at a GDQ event, such as Halo and Mario.

The next GDQ event will be in August when SGDQ 2020 is set to take part in Bloomington, Minnesota, that is if the coronavirus pandemic is over by then. Games Done Quick has raised over $25 million for charity in seven years.
