Games Done Quick, the organisation behind the popular Awesome Games Done Quick and Summer Games Done Quick speedrunning events held every year, has announced it'll be hosting Harvey Relief Done Quick this weekend to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Starting at 10am AEST on Saturday 2 September and continuing through to 10am AEST on Monday 4 September, the stream will feature speedrunners from around the world streaming themselves racing and glitching their way through games in support of relief efforts in Texas.
