Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 Online: Day 7 schedule and runs to watch

Welcome to a new year. Ring it in with the world's best speedrunners, who have returned for Awesome Games Done Quick 2021. The continuing COVID-19 pandemic means everyone is staying socially distant and operating from an online space. However, the mission remains the same. It's seven days of speedrunning action with runners tackling the best games of the past and present for a worldwide audience on Twitch.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 Online is raising money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. This year's runners have raised over $1,500,000 with only one day remaining. Shacknews will be watching this final day and we'll spotlight one last batch of noteworty runs worth following.

But first, let's take a look at a highlight from Day 6 and some blindfolded magic.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 Online: Day 7 schedule

Celeste is wild enough to see in action, but how the heck is anybody playing this game on a dance pad? We're going to find out, because PeekingBoo is going to take on this tough-as-nails platformer (at least the C-sides, anyway) on a dance pad. Those are going to need to be some fast feet to survive.


 


Beat Saber

VR is becoming a bigger and bigger thing in games, so it stands to reason to it become a bigger part of Games Done Quick. Who's ready to check out a special Beat Saber Expert+ Showcase from Kungfufruitcup? This should be something special to witness, so be sure to tune in.


 


Super Mario Bros. 35

This is a special exhibition, in that it'll literally be a one-time-only showcase. That's because Super Mario Bros. 35 will be unplayable after March 31, so Games Done Quick is making sure to make their mark with this special four-way clash. How exactly is this going to work? Shacknews will tune in along with everyone else to find out.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 Online will take place from now through Saturday, January 9. For more, check out the Games Done Quick website and be sure to watch all of the action from Twitch.

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?
