Video game geeks and speedrunning freaks, rejoice, for today marks the kickoff of Awesome Games Done Quick 2015. The annual charity marathon is a celebration of the burgeoning speedrunning community, featuring many of the top runners showcasing their impressive talents across numerous popular video games.
AGDQ 2015 began at 12:00 pm today, and will run through January 11, 2015. Throughout the course of the week, speedrunners will play nonstop, wowing audiences constantly as they glitch, skip and boost their way through each respective game.
